Pliskova vs Muchova
Kvitova vs Konta
Mertens vs BZS

Good luck to all
The strong Czechs

A shame that Strycova will retire this or next year

Smitkova has really fallen She has so many bad results these days. What happened ?

I don't follow her TBH, but many people are now excited about the 14-year-old Linda Fruhvirtova.

Today, she beat the local British girl who's 18 years old and advanced to the second round of the girl's competition. She also makes occasional visits to Mouraglou's academy in Nice.

Despite the recent retirements by Benesova, Vaidisova, Cetkovska, Safarova or Koukalova the Czech women's tennis is in fantastic shape.

And who knows, maybe Smitkova, Allertova or some other currently struggling girl will rise again?

I wish. But with her completely collapsing when losing a lead and crying after every lost match at the age of 24 I don't see it at all.

This takes nothing away from what was mentioned - 25% of all girls in 4th round are Czechs. When will the Brits with their big population, tennis tradition, best tournament ever and all the grass courts infrastructure?

Re: 4 Czechs in the round of 16

And Strycova is the last Czech left in Wimbledon, reaches her first Grand Slam SF !

Her first Grand Slam SF at the age of 33
This shows that it's never too late. And especially on grass experience can be precious.
Also Barbie is a player who never gives up and grass suits her game perfectly.

There needs to be a sports research study done on the Czech tennis program. It’s really incredible that this small nation is always delivering top talent.
