The Moment Petra Kvitova won her birth at her First Grand Slam Final - 30th June 2011 @ Wimbledon Centre Court
http://img.skysports.com/11/06/660x350/PetraKvitova_2615981.jpgIt's pronounced the same,but that word is spelled 'Berth'...different than 'birth',when someone is born.......I think we fans should vote on whether Petra deserves an off-court photo thread,too.If nobody else here wants one,that's okay with me:angel:,but Dani,Dinara and a few other players have separate photo threads...it's worth considering,at least

I don't think she does enough off court events to warrant a complete thread for it. Maybe one day.

I don't think she does enough off court events to warrant a complete thread for it. Maybe one day.Well,I understand your point,but we started an off-court pics thread for Dinara over in her forum,and we can probably agree that Dinarik isn't the most glamorous cover girl in the WTA...and yet we're now approaching 300 pages there.I'm not gonna go militant over this:angel:;I only ask you and the other fans to keep an open mind about it cuz it might be fun to have a separate thread where we could easily find all of Petra's family pics...some humorous photos...and,of course,any hanging-out-at-the-beach:hearts: stuff;)

Lovely moment... that's about the exact time that she turned the tiebreak around and went on to batter the hell out of Stosur in the 2nd set at the AO.

The hubby. :sobbing:He's idolized by men all across CR right now;)...also,I'd like to point out again how well Petra has done this year despite the fact that she's still a young lady and has her first serious bf....can't even count how many WTAers are too emotionally immature to handle the balance in their lives

He lost in the Wimbledon Junior Qualies.

But I think he's 40th in the world after a couple of good tournaments before Wimbledon. So he'll probably play the USO and it will all hit the fan in the media about their relationship. I don't think Petra gives a fuck though. :lol:

Hi all! This is my first post here. Thanks for all the great stuff you've posted.I love it.

Today is July 7, 2011. This afternoon at 16:00 Petra was signing autographs at the Nike store on Na Prikope Street here in Prague. I was lucky enough to be there and got to shake her hand (very soft), got some pictures autographed,got my picture taken with her, congratulated and joked with her and got to touch her Wimbledon trophy! She gave me permission which was great because her handlers told me not to! It was a wonderful experience and she was as sweet as ever! The main photos are on my friend's mobile. I will post them after I receive them. Here are scans of the autographs I was able to get. She signed the color magazine picture first 'Kvit. P.' in a gold metallic marker. Later, I got the cards signed with only 'Kvit' on them. Her arm was getting a little tired by then I guess. The line was going out of the store. THANK YOU PETRA!!! We love you!

She told me her next tournament will be in Toronto, Canada. She's using it as a tune up for the US Open. This news broke my heart because I had written for her a list of the 5 best places to go in my beautiful San Diego.

@ lupojohn: I was just lucky enough to get to meet her today. She was doing a signing for Nike here in Prague where I now live. I asked her about the tournament in Carlsbad and she said she wasn't going to be there, so I asked her where her next tournament would be and she said Toronto.

Ah, gotcha. Is she as sweet and as humble and as shy and as down to earth as she seems on TV?

@ lupojohn: Absolutely. She's completely natural and sweet. And very soft spoken. You can sense she's a shy person adapting to a very public career. She gives preference to kids and agreed to let me touch her trophy without batting an eye. All she said was "Yeah, sure." I would say she's a little more shy with English speakers than with her fellow Czechs. In the Czech interviews I've seen she seems to give much more detailed answers.I hope she never changes and that success brings her happiness. She's a very nice young lady!!

:hatoff: A well researched & considered write up of her life & career until now - a form of mini biography. You could break it up into 3 or 5 yr chunks to build up the chronology of the story & fill up with info & pics. The intention is that you can keep adding to it on a more regular basis going forwards say every year – at end of 2011 – you add that year's biographical summary.

What currently exits is a patchwork of info in various journalistic pieces - some invariably containing hypothetical guesses thrown in for good measure as info is very sparse about Petra. As Petra has no official website, this write-up could be a real good tribute to her from this forum. :yeah:

As you convey the story .... I am sure you will bring to life the story behind Petra :angel: in a fascinating way …..

Today Petra was featured here in CZ in the tabloid Blesk ( US equivalent of The National Enquirer, UK equivalent of The Sun). Amazingly, yours truly got to appear with her on Page 19! I'm the smiling clown in the blue shirt showing her my San Diego 'Top 5 Places To Go List' and getting my magazine signed. I was floored when my friend Tomas called me today to tell me to go buy it.

My thinking altogether. Glad you liked it. Hopefully it will at least a bit improve an average quality of photos in this thread ;-)

No offense to anybody, I appreciate work of all people who take the time to post pictures her. I just think there are some pictures which are better left unposted. I wonder why a reasonable photographer would even make them public. I am just a beginner myself, but pictures on which somebody sleeps or looks like he just got out of the bed are immediately going to the trash.

That's a nice find. No problema. I'll keep my eyes open for it. My best bet would be at one of the bigger bookstores like NeoLuxor at Vaclavske Namesti (Wenceslas Square). Today I'm going on a family daytrip to Czech Paradise (Cesky Raj) but tomorrow I'll go by the bookstore. Hopefully, it will be there. Cross your fingers or 'hold your thumbs' as the Czechs say.

Yup, OK

I asked that because I went to the Reuters website to find the photos. There are some restrictions to the posting of Getty images in here, and I thought maybe those also applied to Reuters photos.

But I think all or nearly all the photos I was going to post can be found at this slideshow anyway, and in better quality:

Saying it's "interesting" is being nice. I think it's safe to say if she wins the US Open that house will be passed on to her brothers and her and her parents will have a new custom home built somewhere close by. They deserve it!

It's funny how open the Czech media is with all this information - the house number, license plate number etc. Isn't it more common for this stuff to be blurred in photos to protect the celebrity's privacy a little? It's a good thing she lives in a very safe, calm country.

Yeah. But it's still not right, and I wouldn't do it (If I'm the Czech media). Thank god most of us aren't in that country, or I'd complain about us to.

Nice pics though.

PS: I think there two homes. The family home, and Petra always said she lived in a flat (apartment in a apartment building in Fulnek). I'm assuming that's the building, that you guys were talking about. The family home could be that small, nice looking house near her parked car (or vice versa). Lol.

Looks like those small blocks of flats built without a proper project by very small contractors (usually family businesses working only for friends and relatives) in rural areas. Familiar sight in my own b00tifull kawntree.

It sure gives you some perspective (sez the guy whose parents lived in an decayed attic with an outhouse when he was born).

For all the sob stories we've always heard about the starving Russians hocking their radio sets so that they could buy a used racquet I doubt any of them ever lived in a place like that.

she really doesn't smile in these pictures

But her eyes are always directly engaging the camera. It was something I noticed when I took her photo here at the Estoril Open.

Funny how, even after allowance is made for Kvitty being short haired in all of those, her hair doesn't seem to have been as wild when she was a kid.

Cute photos regardless.

Nonetheless, Fulnek is a pretty, picturesque town from those Parade Photo's I saw. And it sure as hell looks bigger than a place with 6000 people. But I guess that's just the downtown that looks that way (Big-ish)?

Some of you are scaring me with her 16yr old pics boy. Lol.

Saying it's "interesting" is being nice. I think it's safe to say if she wins the US Open that house will be passed on to her brothers and her and her parents will have a new custom home built somewhere close by. They deserve it!

It's funny how open the Czech media is with all this information - the house number, license plate number etc. Isn't it more common for this stuff to be blurred in photos to protect the celebrity's privacy a little? It's a good thing she lives in a very safe, calm country.

I didn't mean interesting in a bad way. I've just never seen a home shaped like that...not everybody can afford to live in the most lavish places growing up. I'm sure that house served it's purpose. Didn't seem to hamper Petra, that's for sure.

Sorry if I took your point the wrong way. Obviously you made a good point. It's what happens inside a house which makes it a home and from all appearances, she had a happy life growing up there. And I'm sure the interior is much nicer than the outside. The home is as modest and unpretentious as Petra.

Their home is a reflection of the times it was built in. How fancy can you get when a bunch of invading pigs take over your country, steal your businesses, rob you of your basic human rights, and reduce you to living on 2500 czk a month for 40 years?

That building style is quite typical in many parts of the country. I would guess it was built in the 70's or 80's when the Communist influence was trying to project this to the Czechs as 'modern'. You should see some of the ugly, boxey architectural catastrophes they put up in some of the beautiful medieval town centers like in Brno, Jihlava and Olomouc for example. It was one of their many 'gifts' to their Czech 'brothers'. Thanks swine!

Hi all! This is my first post here. Thanks for all the great stuff you've posted.I love it.

Today is July 7, 2011. This afternoon at 16:00 Petra was signing autographs at the Nike store on Na Prikope Street here in Prague. I was lucky enough to be there and got to shake her hand (very soft), got some pictures autographed,got my picture taken with her, congratulated and joked with her and got to touch her Wimbledon trophy! She gave me permission which was great because her handlers told me not to! It was a wonderful experience and she was as sweet as ever! The main photos are on my friend's mobile. I will post them after I receive them. Here are scans of the autographs I was able to get. She signed the color magazine picture first 'Kvit. P.' in a gold metallic marker. Later, I got the cards signed with only 'Kvit' on them. Her arm was getting a little tired by then I guess. The line was going out of the store. THANK YOU PETRA!!! We love you!

I finally received those other photos from my friend. They were worth waiting for! Look at those smiles on her face. She was so happy and nice that day. I can't wait to see her again.

Did you watch the video on Wimbledon's website, where that pic came from? It's equally as cute and entertaining. There's an accompanying article with it as well titled, "Petra Kvitova charms" blah blah. It's about 2min, 15 secs (If I remember correctly).

Ironically, we toured around Prague the next day and saw the Nike store with Petra's poster outside but I just took a pic and wasn't able to go inside because we were with a tour.

I know right!? Scary (especially after she was leading Serena in the first set and ended up playing a tie breaker, while she was running Serena ragged around the court with her powerful ground strokes in that set)!!!

Which is why the media's fascination with Sharapova winning (strictly based off of experience, since even most dense experts, after seeing Petra play in the semi-finals, acknowledged she was better than Sharapova) made no sense. Petra came to win, and she knew she could win!! But none of those guys were paying attention to her, and what she had to say/felt. Oh well! Lol.

My reasons for predicting a Petra win, was because she was clearly the better player. So even though I didn't think she was going to be nervous (look how she was playing all tournament), even if she was, she was that much better than Sharapova, to where she could shrug off any mistakes, and keep it moving (as she did). No problem! Lol.

Petra would of had to totally implode in my mind to lose.

She was cool as a cucumber wasn't she :cool:

It was annoying me that everyone kept saying Sharapova was a massive favourite simply because she had been in the final seven years ago (and fair enough, has won some slams). Yes, maybe she was a slight favourite due to Petra having never been in a GS final before but like you said, with the way Petra was playing there was no way you could call Sharapova the overwhelming favourite.

I believe Petra when she says she wasn't too nervous throughout the match but I wonder if her stomach was doing somersaults before serving that ace lol

I'm truly sorry for you Scarlet. You really missed a great opportunity. It started at 4pm. Would you believe at 3:05 there were me and only four other people waiting near the signing table. At that point I realized I had nothing for her to sign so I left the store to desperately find any tennis magazine with her picture in it I could. I ran to three different stores in the area before I found what I was looking for and returned. It was now about 3:25 and there were still only the other four people waiting in the line. To my shock, I hadn't even lost my spot (a nice surprise!). The crowd really only started showing up around 3:40 or so and by 4 o'clock the store was packed with the line eventually going out the door. Petra arrived right on time and was welcomed and presented with flowers by the organizers(a very nice custom, Czechs do this all the time, Prague has flowershops everywhere). While she talked to the organizers a little the media snapped photos and then she got down to business. She was very friendly and accomodating to all the fans ( I saw some people have her sign up to four of the provided autograph photocards). From past experience I can tell you that you would never see a bigname sportsstar in America, for just one example, agree to that. Plus, many of them only sign if they are being paid per item - a concept which amused my Czech friends who would never pay 10kc for anybody's autograph. The event was covered by TV Nova and the print media and ended around 5:15. All thanks for my lucky day go to my loving wife who heard about the event on the radio and tipped me off and my good friend and fellow tennis fan Aleš who got to the store on time and took the photos. I'm glad he was able to benefit also. I wonder what happened to that poster? lol

Lastly, I hope you had a wonderful, fun time in our beautiful capital city. It sounds like you did! Ciao. QPF

It's funny you mention the prematch predictions. It was amazing how few people, even 'experts', gave Petra a real chance of winning. I had thought of posting some of them just for laughs. The Masha crowd especially thought it was totally in the bag.

Just a sampling from Tennis.com:

Look for Kvitova to do a Novotna. Maria in 2.

This is Maria's match to win or lose. That being said, Sharapova in 2 tight sets, with her steely determination being the difference.

Lets see. If Maria wins, she will have 6741 points. That should be good for 4th place. I re-did my numbers, if Maria wins, she will move to number 3 spot on the rankings.

Actually see this as an easy win for her. Kvitova will fold as the newbies all seem to do once on the big
stage..pretty pathetic if you ask me.

Calvy, Kvitova will lose. She will do the same thing that Lisicki did and lose her confidence. Maria doesn't have to play magnificent because the players that were left in tournament do not have the experience to win. They all know how to play well but haven't figured out how to win yet. When Li, Serena, and then Bartoli went out, I felt it was all about Maria. Bartoli plays a bold match even though she didn't win. She doesn't get intimidated easily. I am pretty sure Maria will take advantage of Kvitova's lack of experience.

In any event, I hate to say it’s a foregone conclusion, but it ALMOST is a foregone conclusion…the almost is due to that “anything can happen” cliché-y line. Afterall, Pova (as much as I like her) is no Serena.

Thankfully, there were also a couple of realists who had something intelligent to say to the Mashamaniacs:

I'm amazed at how many of you are dismissing the Czech player. This woman can crack winners from anywhere, and next to serena she has the best serve in the wta, even better than Stosur at the moment. I do think that last year's semifinal result has and will pay dividends for her. Petra in 3 sets, but she must win the 1st set as she has a tendency to drift for streches during matches. Her forehand can abandon her in batches of games.

I totally agree with your comment. I also wish to add that most if not all of the pressure is on Sharapova and not on Kvitova. As you've said, with many not expecting much from Petra, she will have the better edge in the finals. Plus, she is usually calm and cool anyway, so she will do good!

I do think Petra's mental attitude was totally underestimated before the final, you can just see in her eyes that she means business and I never doubted she would play well, even if she was beaten. I had a really good feeling about the final and was totally delighted to finally see someone I was rooting for actually win there (hadn't happened since 2006 lol)

It's one of the things I like about her - the contrast between her intensity on the court and her sweetness off it :)

Obviously Queen Petra fan; most of these people didn't see Petra play much (if at all, during Wimby).

To be fair, Sam Smith of the BBC, Martina Navra, Brad Gilbert, Ravi Ubha (both ESPN) and Lance at Crunch Sports betting service had predicted Petra to win before hand. John McEnroe of the BBC, NBC and Tennis channel picked her to make the finals vs Sharapova. And even Mary Joe Fernandez (who's husband works at IMG, Sharapova's agent company), along with Darren Cahil, and Cliff Drysdale (all of ESPN), admitted that "Petra Kvitova is the more talented player, and if this match was based on talent she'd win certainly'. They did. As far as the internet, Petra had a lot of deeply convicted supporters on Tennis.com, Talk Tennis and ESPN's website hailing her as "the next great female tennis player" , as well. Don't worry. I saw your Mashamaniacs quote Queen Petra Fan. Lol.

It's funny, Petra started as a 8-1 betting favorite (generally in the top 4-6 players from the start) with Serena and Sharapova flip flopping the top spot, and Petra mostly ahead of Venus. Obviously The British, and other Tennis fans remembered her run from last year with those odds. As the tournament progressed her odds got better after each great game. By the day of the semi-finals, her odds were down to 3.50-75 to 1, compared to Sharapova's 3.20 to 1 (or so). Not that much difference there.

When you think about it, the betting crowd had excellent faith in Petra, cause Sharapova was a famous, determined 3x grand slam winner with big media support, and Petra was a virtual unknown to most fans (outside of bloggers, coaches and good tennis writers). So her odds were incredibly strong for a virtual unknown (as some media would want us to believe) from the start, right down to final. All most media/writers had to do, was look at her betting odds (or her Wimby matches) for perspective.

Now by the semi-final/final, people in the know knew Petra could win, but the general media was absolutely clueless (it didn't help she was off television until the Semi-final), and then lied and described it a "shocking upset" when most people close to the sport weren't surprised, and only gave Sharapova a chance, due to experience in the first place. Smh.

All of a sudden, after Petra wins, she's hailed as the next great thing. Why? These people either had no faith in Petra holding her nerve, picked her in the French (which many did)-then were disappointed when she lost and got gun shy, they forgot about/dismissed her Wimby Semi-final run last year (I don't know why), were too focused on the Williams sisters- then Sharapova (you know they need a story to tell/relate), and/or didn't really watch her play during Wimby this year, didn't think she was ready yet, and was predicting she'd win Grand Slams in the future, as a great prospect. Lol

Ultimately, some media were dumb, and some were about marketing others (whether they knew she could win or not), and didn't care. So there it goes!!

Sorry for the long response. :) ;) :tape: :lol:

Is it just me or does it look to you also that she appears to be a little choked up in the picture on the right? There's just a little something about the mouth and eyes in that one that gives me that impression. But who could blame her, right? It had to be an amazing moment for her and her family.

A few nice ones I hadn't seen before from http://isport.blesk.cz/galerie/tenis/91556

That's a nice find. No problema. I'll keep my eyes open for it. My best bet would be at one of the bigger bookstores like NeoLuxor at Vaclavske Namesti (Wenceslas Square). Today I'm going on a family daytrip to Czech Paradise (Cesky Raj) but tomorrow I'll go by the bookstore. Hopefully, it will be there. Cross your fingers or 'hold your thumbs' as the Czechs say.
I realized that QPF have not succeeded so far in finding out where to buy the tennis magazine "Tennis Arena" in Prague. So, here is a little hint: www.tennis-arena.cz. :-) I think they should have some older issues too.

Yes I am! And the photographer was kind enough to use a special lens which corrected my teeth and magically made me look years younger, although not taller or slimmer. According to some of my friends and English language students I'm photogenic - that means I look better in photos than I do in real life. :rolleyes: ;) It's all good.

So they don't do cement handprints for their stars? Petra even has her hand over the star as if she wants to leave her handprint there in one of the pics. Oh well. The pics of her leaning over her star are especially cute.

Thanks Howard. We were actually sharing a funny moment at the time. Plus, I was thrilled at the opportunity to meet her so soon after her triumph. It was a great day and she was a total sweety with everyone. Our star is a genuinely nice person. It's real.

Yeah Corswant, her figure does look nice & scrumptious there; very feminine!

The only thing though (being a horrifically, honest, chauvinist, nit-picky male), I think her butt is not as shapely in other pics, other angles (or in general; like the Fed Cup Pic in shorts, for example), as this one.

Hey! It is here, though. Good for her/us! Work/Rock it Petra! Lol.

The good thing is, though , now there are more pics of Petra floating on the internet (for when those of us are feeling more shallow), besides her sweaty-end of game Wimbledon finals pics, and interviews.

Now when people think of her, there are more pics to offer (since she's new to so many people, and gaining fans).

Makes sense/even more sense, now. Thanks!

Maybe I'm a chauvinist, but the male usage of the name, sounds more threatening than the female usage (Lion vs Lioness)?

Maybe it's just me, or it really doesn't matter, and the female usage is just as appropriate and descriptive of Petra, her play and agression?

Arrrggghhhhh!

Petra is in good company (along with Berdych).

NetJets is a good company.

Warren Buffet's, Berthshire Hathaway Company is a major investor (maybe majority/controlling, if I remember correctly?), and Roger Federer is one of the Pitchman, who of course becomes a client for Netjets as well.

Remember Fed hauling and dragging all those trophies on the plane commercial? Lol. That's the company she's with.

Judging by the photo op, and earlier announcement, this may be some kind of promotional deal (you travel for less, or for free, if you talk about or promote me)?

I'm sure Netjets would like to increase their European business, and visibility through two young tennis stars.

Good for her!

PS: Yeah. I did notice those captions. Lol.

When/where is the interview?

I'm looking for it now, and haven't found it yet. Ok. I'll try CNN's website directly.

No luck. I guess the WTA got the heads up, and this will be broadcast/uploaded later?

OK. Kool. I gotta a feeling Petra may play on Weds to?

Hope she gets some good practice in, and stays away from where ever Venus ate in this interview, and in general (gulp)?

That's the one, I don't think she did a tv clip though . Well, I searched all over YouTube and couldn't find one anyway :(
:) The Video footage of the photo shoot does exist - the link was on the WTA site within a week of the campaign kick-off & photo shoot release - the footage from memory : cam angle is left side as she runs towards the ball with racket outstretched
