This was a terrible incident - so needless. Huge respect for her resilience in overcoming a poor prognosis, and wish her every success.But cut out the self-congratulatory and entirely irrelevant end to the article, as if Kvitova is in any way helped by the BBC agenda... "complemented by our journalism, we are aiming to turn up the volume on women's sport and alter perceptions" nonsense.
Terrific recovery. Very good news after a terrible incident.
This was probably the most interesting thing to happen to a tennis player since Bankrupt Boris did the naughty in a broom cupboard.This Kvitova story means I am so excited for Wimbledon and seeing all our British ladies go out in the first round! Woooo!
Been living in the Czech Republic for 10 years and have been following her every step of the way along her already illustrious career. Looking forward to seeing her crowned the queen of wimbledon once again!
Petra is great - I hope she wins Wimbledon again and a lot more. It certainly couldn't happen to a nicer person.
Not taking anything away from this incident but let’s not forget what happened to Monica Seles. Shocking! A true fighting champion.
My wife is Czech and met her at Brno airport 4 years back as they were on the same Ryanair flight to Stansted. She was travelling over for Wimbledon. Posed for photos, nothing was any trouble. The next day, she walks in to the same restaurant as us in Eastbourne, recognises us and comes over and hugs my wife. Such a lovely down to earth girl is Petra. Hope she wins Wimbledon this year. Pojd!!
It is a sign of the sickness in our society that common tarting-slaps like the Kardashians - empty-headed, fashion/consumption/novelty/image-obsessed - are the ones revered and emulated by our young.While the unshowy, principled, good qualities of someone like Petra Kvitova go largely unnoticed. Even the word 'wholesome' is now a dirty one.How our children are influenced matters - a lot.
Brave and talented. A true fighter. Wish her well.
Seems like a nice down to earth person.
Really enjoy reading these in-depth pieces, and Kvitova is one of my favourite players on the WTA tour.
Always liked her and so pleased she's back, not just competing but winning. Good luck for Wimbledon and beyond. Beautiful lady
Its so great to see Petra back competing. And I want her to win Wimbledon. I don't care about her Nationality. She comes across as a lovely person and has shown amazing determination after such a horrendous event. I with her every success in her professional life and every happiness in her personal life.
Good profile of Petra. Crime figures for England & Wales need checking.1 million violent crimes during what period? International statistics render this as complete nonsense!
Of all the current female tennis players, Petra remains my favourite, both for her still top quality playing ability and also her humble and friendly nature.Always like to read articles on her. A thoroughly inspirational young lady, who I only wish good things for.I really hope she is able to have a good run at this year's SW19, few deserve it like Petra Kvitova!
