This will probably be Barbara's last professional event. Good luck Barbara and Kveta.

She might still play Bundesliga though, and she's the new Fed Cup captain for Germany so she's not totally gone.

nice to hear, thanks for sharing

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Well, she won the Wimbledon Junior title in 1991, but she was already 18 so I don't think she was ever supposed to be a top 10 talent.
She was a bit of an underachiever though and never really believed in herself against the top players.

Hope that Kveta/Barbara will attempt to win the title here, would be great to see them winning as farewell for Barbara

Good Luck Kveta/Barbara

Yes, they were regular doubles partners and won Estoril doubles title in 2001.
