Czech tennis team for Olympics!

singles ATP: Tomas Berdych, Radek Stepanek, Ivo Minar
singles WTA: Nicole Vaidisova, Lucie Safarova, Iveta Benesova, Klara Zakopalova

doubles ATP: Berdych/Stepanek, Damm/Vizner
doubles WTA: Vaidisova/Benesova

they request a wildcard for Safarova/Kvitova so it isn't sure they will play doubles

They totally ignored Czech #1 Ulhirova

Re: Czech tennis team for Olympics!

Poor Iveta... She should play doubles with Kveta or Vladka instead.

Ana Ivanović.

Agree. I really hope Vaidisova isn't too much of a liability for her.

Re: Czech tennis team for Olympics!

This is stupid!

18yo Petra Kvitova is one of most talented worlds players (ranked #60 on june 9 WTA list) and have by far better chances to doing than Klara (sweety, but never nothing special) and Iveta (claycourt specialist). Actualy if her improving continue and Lucie and Nicole slump also - she is actualy Czech potential best shot for Beijing.


But atleast she will not be close to Radek .


Without doubles WTA TOP5 Kveta things is even worse for doubles (Czech coach dont want chances for medal... or what!?).

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Kveta doesn't want to play doubles... I'm sad for it because she wanted to play with Nicole Nicole played a great match with Kveta in doubles against Slovakia..

Iveta a clay court specialist? Iveta's career win loss record in the main draw of WTA events is 37-44 on hard, 41-47 on clay and 15-18 indoors. Basically about the same winning percentage on all surfaces aside from grass. Kvitova's career record in the main draw of WTA events is 4-3 on clay, 0-2 on hard and 2-2 indoors. She has some talent but is very inexperienced and has a lot to learn. Ridiculous to suggest that she deserves a place in singles over Benesova. Absolutely ridiculous.
