CNN spent some time with Petra Kvitova getting to know the new Wimbledon champion. Open Court also spoke Martina Navratilova who said she predicted Kvitova’s Wimbledon title and Kim Clijsters.

In her first tournament since Wimbledon, the 6th-ranked Kvitova lost to Andrea Petkovic easily last week in the third round at Toronto.

This week the Czech star in Cincinnati for the Western and Southern. She’s scheduled to play the winner of the Rebecca Marino-Chanelle Scheepers match.

Kvitova talked last week about her time after Wimbledon.

“I went at home after Wimbledon for two weeks, and I had it off, for sure,” she said. “But I was traveling around Czech, and I had some interviews and something around. Then I had fitness preparation in the mountains in Slovak, and after that I played 12 days, 14 days tennis. So I’m ready for the tournament, but I have to play more matches.”

I missed the match but from the scoreline it sure seemed so. I see Williams back up to 31 or 32. At least she will prob be seeded for USO.


Colin Says:

“I went home after Wimbledon for two weeks and I had it off.”
That would have caused roars off laughter in the UK, where the phrase “had it off” means something very different!
