She is stepping into the shoes of Martina Hingis. When she was No.1 she did a similar thing during an ice-hockey match in CZ.

Not as painfully obvious as the Danish POTY awards were earlier,but Petra is still a runaway winner for Women's Best

The Cernošek effect. Anything for a euro to increase her international popularity so he can squeeze more money from sponsors. Why care if they invaded her country and BFed her family and fellow Czechs for 50 years. Next he'll have her giving private tennis lessons or exhibitions for oligarchs or singing duets with Karel Gott for them. Karel made a nice career out of kissing Russian Communist butt. It's sad to see Petra allowing her principles to be sold so easily by Cernošek. Actually, it's quite disgusting. I hope she at least dances better than King Karel!


Navratilova would never stoop to this. God bless you Martina.

She is already higher in the rankings. Why not surpass Masha in the looks department, too? Also, she looks quite happy.

Can't remember the precise year that the B.Wall came down,but Petra was no more than a young infant when it did.It's pretty difficult to get a strong political stance out of young athletes,QPF....I'm sure that the WS probably wouldn't play a tournament if they knew it was bankrolled by a former pro-apartheid politician;however,most athletes I've seen don't make such distinctions from any personal principles,and I don't know if anti-communist sentiment really dwells in Petra since she's been free for basically her whole life

True enough Bruce. Having principles is becoming more secondary everyday. People can't be bothered as long as they get theirs. I'm sure her parents have feelings about it but they don't seem the types who would pressure or persuade Petra to follow their beliefs in regards to politics or history.

By the way, Petra comes from the area of the Czech Republic which votes the most heavily in support of the national Communist political party year after year. Who knows who her parents vote for or who they supported in the past. It's a fact that in the past, to keep or get certain jobs, you had to be a Communist Party member. To not be was a career killer. We just don't know in the case of the Kvit family.

It's also a strange truth, that most Czechs I've met have worse feelings toward Germans than towards Russians. Everybody remembers Hitler, the Holocaust, WW2 and it's effect on Czechoslovakia. On a simpler more contemporary level, they think Germans are just loud, arrogant, overly proud drunks who think Czechs and others are beneath them. I haven't met too many Czechs, young or old, who think highly of Germans.

Meanwhile, mystifyingly, a lot of Czechs today view Russians more favorably even though they hijacked Czechoslovakia and sucked it dry for 50 years, persecuted and killed thousands of innocent Czechs and wrecked the careers and lives of millions. Today, these people live nearly like starving rats because of their tiny pension checks they receive thanks to the Communist takeover of their lives.

Today, Russian politicians, mobs and oligarchs are behind loads of the corruption which is taking place today in CZ. With the help of Czech political lackeys they have effectively corrupted many Czech public ministries, police forces, city and town governments public procurement tenders; the list goes on and on. Hundreds of millions of euros of public money disappears and nobody gets prosecuted. It's turned into a deep, disgusting mess and the public are nearly helpless to stop it. Don't take my word for it, read all about it yourself:

Like their forefathers Bruce, I think many Czechs are content to stick their heads in the sand until everything changes naturally or somebody changes it for them. Meanwhile the beat goes on as the country gets eaten out from the inside by Czech politicians and their Russian friends. Hopefully, Cernosek doesn't get Petra involved with these people just because they're wealthy and influential.

I think this event is actually quite innocent.
The background is that a small ice hockey club located in the city of Poprad in Slovakia's highest mountains has joined - as the first non-Russian club - the Russian ice hockey league (KHL)which has ambitions to compete with the North American NHL. As a tourist resort, the city of Poprad and the club want to get as much publicity as possible. By coincidence, the Wimbledon queen and the best female tennis player in the world is simultaneously practicing at a nearby hotel in the very same mountain resort

JMHO of course.

Funny comments on Karel Gott! I actually switched off the final part of the Prostějov celebration video when he came on the stage starting his boilerplate speech

Forgive me for my ignorance of Czech social dynamics,QPF,but I suspect the disparity between anti-German and anti-Russian hostility isn't that strange.If I recall my history correctly,Hitler only invaded the old Czechoslovakia in the mid-30s and was uprooted only ten years later.In contrast,the Soviets/Russians had almost a half-century to ingrain themselves,their teachings and their ways & philosophies into the Czech way of life.By now,there are likely plenty of young Czechs who don't even see the old USSR as the bad guy,and Petra may well be amongst those who feel that way

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

What Bruce said.


Why should she bear a grudge against a whole country and its people for something that was done years ago by an unelected govt in that Country’s name? That would be prejudiced. Ditto any Czech's prejudice against Germany or the German people.

I have never felt any animosity towards Germans and any Brit these days that does is seen as stupid by most. Even if I had been around just after the war finished, I'd like to think I would feel the same as I don't like to make generalisations that border on racism (not the right word of course as I am talking about Europeans)
