I thought that was a given when she announced her pregnancy but it's still sad nonetheless. A fun person both on and off the court.

All of my favourite Czechs from the early-to-mid 1980s generation have retired now: Koukalova, Safarova, Benesova, Strycova, Hlavackova*, Cetkovska. 🙁 Only Hradecka is left and she can barely win back-to-back matches in doubles these days.

*Well, Hlavackova hasn't officially retired but I don't see her coming back.

Thought she would have come back post-pregnancy for a farewell tour of sorts a là Azarenka.

C'est la vie, but besides the current crop of U-25 chicks like Muchova, Bouzkova or Vondrousova, many more are actually coming up: Linda & Brenda Fruhvirtova, Nikola Bartunkova, Linda Noskova, Darja Vidmanova, etc.

They're worth Czeching out.

Glad she eventually picked up a Grand Slam doubles title. Also pleased she finally made a Grand Slam singles semifinal at that same slam. 2019 Wimbledon really was something for her. Amazing that event is still less than two years ago.
