But once she did, her blistering talent was there for all to see as she became a regular in the WTA events, winning matches with ease but it was not until her Grand Slam success at Wimbledon that she became a household name throughout the tennis world.

Apart from winning Wimbledon twice, the second of which came in 2014, Petra Kvitova is alos a two time semi finalist of the French Open and Australian Open but she has never managed to breach the fourth round barrier of the US Open. Her win at Wimbledon in 2011 saw her reach a career high ranking of world number two in October 2011 and she is currently ranked as the fourth in the world.
