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

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

she had a lot of promise at 18, pretty uneventful career tho?

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
