Petra Kvitova has seen some good times and bad times in her short career so far. Her fitness has always been a big concern for her, but, she has shown that she knows how to fight her way through it. Even in the last season, she struggled at times with her fitness, but, she bounced back and came up with some fantastic performances in the second half of the season.

Kvitova is pretty optimistic about the upcoming season. She is hoping that she hits top form pretty early in the season and makes her way to the top of the official rankings published by WTA.

Kvitova has won just one Grand Slam in her career so far. She had done that at All England Club a couple of years back. She is currently ranked 6th in the world.

Yesterday, in one of her interviews, when she was asked how different she was in 2011 when she had achieved glory in the Wimbledon Championships, the Czech player said, “In the last couple of years, a lot of things have happened in my career and I have learnt from them. Now, I know that even if the things are not going your way, you can get better of your opponent if you are mentally tough. So, I am not the same player which I was back in 2011.”

“I still have a lot of things to learn. As a player, it’s important for you to keep learning and keep improving your game.”

Kvitova’s first tournament in the upcoming season will be the Apia International Tennis tournament. It will be played on the hard courts of Sydney, Australia and playing in that tournament will help the Czech player get ready for the Australian Open.
