Biography

Petra Kvitova won her first title in 2009, in Hobart, and two years later she was a Wimbledon champion. In the 2011 Wimbledon final, the eighth-seeded Czech upset Maria Sharapova in straight sets for her first Grand Slam title, becoming the first left-handed woman since Martina Navratilova in 1990 to win the Championships. That same breakthrough season, she won her first Premier Mandatory title in Madrid, and finished the year ranked second in the world. In 2014 she won a second Wimbledon title, dominating Eugenie Bouchard, 6-3, 6-0, for the trophy in the most lopsided final in more than two decades. Kvitova won the prestigious WTA Tour Championships in 2011, and has been a member of four championship Fed Cup teams (2011, 2012, 2014, 2015). Kvitova is an extremely gifted all-court player. She combines powerful, pure ball-striking skills with a penetrating lefty serve and fine feel around the net. 

Kvitova beat Maria Sharapova, 6-3, 6-4, in the 2011 Wimbledon final:
