Safarova, Sukova honored for service to Czech tennis

Czechs Helena Sukova and Lucie Safarova were honored for their Fed Cup exploits at the O2 Arena in Prague over the weekend as they were each presented with the Fed Cup Commitment Award.

November 12, 2018

Czech stalwarts Lucie Safarova and Helena Sukova were honored for on-court service to their country at the recently-concluded Fed Cup final over the weekend, as each player was presented with the Fed Cup Commitment Awards ahead of the second day of play.

The two Czech players, who contested 75 Fed Cup by BNP Paribas ties and won seven titles between them, were well received at the O2 Arena - home of so much Czech success in recent years - on Sunday before the home nation clinched the final tie against the United States.

The ITF introduced the award in 2016 to recognize players who have been particularly dedicated to representing their nation in Fed Cup. To be eligible for the award, players must compete in a minimum of 20 World Group ties or 50 ties at any level of the competition.

Safarova made her Fed Cup debut in 2004 and played a total of 21 ties. She has been a stalwart of the team in recent years, and was a member of the Czech Republic teams that took home the title in 2011, 2012 and 2014.

The occasion was particularly poignant for Safarova, whose final Fed Cup tie was in the first round of this year's competition. The 31-year-old announced earlier this week that she would retire from tennis after the 2019 Australian Open.

Hall of Famer Sukova, enshrined earlier this year, played 54 Fed Cup ties over 15 years, and holds the record for most total Fed Cup wins by a Czech player.

Having won an incredible 57 Fed Cup rubbers, she appeared in five Fed Cup Finals and helped the team win four of them, in 1983, 1984, 1985 and 1986.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Safarova and Sukova receive Fed Cup Commitment Award

11 Nov 2018

Lucie Safarova and Helena Sukova have been presented with Fed Cup Commitment Awards ahead of the second day of play at the Fed Cup Final between Czech Republic and USA in Prague.

The two Czech players, who have contested 75 Fed Cup by BNP Paribas ties and won seven titles between them, were well received at the O2 Arena - home of so much Czech success in recent years - on Sunday.

The ITF introduced the award in 2016 to recognise players who have been particularly dedicated to representing their nation in Fed Cup. To be eligible for the award, players must compete in a minimum of 20 World Group ties or 50 ties at any level of the competition.

Safarova made her Fed Cup debut in 2004 and has played a total of 21 ties. She has been a stalwart of Petr Palaís team in recent years, and was a member of the Czech Republic teams that won the Fed Cup Final in 2011, 2012 and 2014.

The occasion was particularly poignant for Safarova, whose final Fed Cup tie was in the first round of this year's competition. The 31-year-old announced earlier this week that she would retire from tennis after the 2019 Australian Open.

Czech legend Sukova has played more Fed Cup ties than any other Czech player. She played 54 Fed Cup ties over 15 years, and holds the record for most total Fed Cup wins by a Czech player, having won an incredible 57 Fed Cup rubbers. She appeared in 5 Fed Cup Finals and won 4 of them, in 1983, 1984, 1985 and 1986.

Barbora Strycova, who is contesting her 20th and final Fed Cup tie this weekend, is also now eligible to receive the Commitment Award. She was given a generous ovation by the Prague crowd and will be presented with her award at a later date.

You're right. An error in the article. It should have been 1988 when Czechoslovakia with Sukova d. the Soviet Union.

Re: Helena Sukova ....

I love all the "action" (spin) Helena got on her whippit-like forehand.


On the other hand flatter shots might have helped her more on faster surfaces.
