Denisa is one of my favourite european players on the tour
She has been consistently in the top 100 for years now. She has upset a few big names on tour as well.
I have seen her play only a few times, never a whole match. From what i can gather, she hits quite hard and has weapons. A strong forehand. and good serve as well.
God knows why she wants to look like a man and shave her hair short like that.... it must help her tennis in some strange way.


Can anyone tell me more about Chladkova's game?
or anything they know about her?

Well you're pretty much on the money with Denisa there. She has solid groundies hits them both pretty hard for someone of her rank though when she is off her game she can spray the ball all over the place. Her serve is quite dodgy though. She is quite feisty on court, plenty of come on's and fist pumps. However, she is very one dimensional and that's part of the reason she's sorta got stuck around the section of the rankings she occupies.

She used to have long hair when she started out but soon shaved most of it off. I actually think her hair is most practical for playing a sport in some of the hot climates that players have to go to but hey I'm a boy! I think to have long hair and playing sport must be horrible whenver you start to get all sweaty.

Denisa never really lived up to the promise she showed back in 1997 as a teen when she defeated Davenport 7-5 6-2 at Wimbledon before losing to Hingis in the quarter finals.
