Kvitova donates clubhouse to childhood tennis club

September 12, 2017

Petra Kvitova returned home to the Czech Republic this week to give a gift to the tennis courts that raised her.

FULNEK, Czech Republic - Fresh off a quarterfinal appearance at the US Open, Petra Kvitova returned home to the Czech Republic this week to give back to her home town -- and the tennis courts she grew up on -- in a special way.

The two-time Wimbledon champion donated a clubhouse to the club where she started playing tennis, and as a gift to the city of Fulnek.

"Those courts hold special memories for me, so I was really pleased I could help in some way and give back to the place that gave me so much at the beginning of my journey in tennis," Kvitova said.

"It was great to be back there and of course to see my family and friends. I hope everyone in Fulnek will really enjoy using it!"

Named in her honor, the colors inside the clubhouse also pay homage the tournament that turned her into a global superstar --Wimbledon -- with green floors and purple accents.

The club is still a family affair for the Czech lefty as well: Kvitova's father, the former vice mayor of her hometown, still frequents the club to play, while her older brother, Libor, is the head coach and manager of the courts.

Kvitova's heart and generosity have been well-rewarded this month, as the Czech was also the recipient of the sixth annual US Open Sportsmanship Award by the USTA, presented to the players who exemplify exceptional sportsmanship during the US Open Series and US Open.
Petra is a great person !

i think i really overestimated her ability and progress after that Birmingham title...i didn't realize she was still physically struggling in this manner

like she may never hit certain shots again
