The Czech tennis player Petra kvitova gave an interview to Czech television where he confirmed his presence for the US Open, despite the fact that in recent days his presence at said event seemed ruled out. The player born in Bilovec admits having had many doubts due to the latest events in the United States due to the coronavirus.
-The current world number twelve confirms its presence for the US Open:
“I had a lot of doubts about whether or not to play the US Open because of the current situation in the United States. I have realized that I am in my last years of professional career and that I cannot afford to skip Grand Slams. So therefore I have decided to play Cincinnati, the US Open and also Roland Garros. Before it seemed that they would not let us fly with anyone to the American continent but it seems that things have changed. They have allowed us to travel with a coach and a physiotherapist. I am not a player that he needs a lot of people around him. Probably for the boys this is more uncomfortable, since they usually have many people in their work team “, he acknowledges in words collected by UbiTennis.
-Kvitova very much misses playing official matches:
“There will be a lot of nerves when traveling there and the first days at the facilities but you have to be calm. I already really want to jump on the court and play. I haven’t experienced those feelings for a long time and after many months without being able to play to the fullest level, I really miss tennis. It will be nice to fight again. “
-The Czech player dragged some discomfort in her hand during the Berlin exhibition tournament:
“At the moment everything is fine and fortunately my hand does not hurt much. I am taking good care of myself so that it lasts. I played a game on clay and after the game I felt some very strong pains. After that I decided not to play anymore in clay and go on to prepare for the hard courts, since the first tournaments on the calendar take place on this surface, “said the Czech player who will try to add her third Grand Slam as a professional at the US Open.
