In the “giving back” department, Petra Kvitova has donated a new clubhouse to the tennis club in her hometown of Fulnek, Czech Republic.
Kvitova started playing tennis on those courts, and her father Jiří Kvita still plays there.
Kvitova’s older brother Libor is the head coach and manager of the club.
The Czech lefty, who lost to Venus Williams in a dazzling quarterfinal at the US Open, has pulled out of Tokyo next week. Next up is Wuhan, which she has won twice and where she is the defending champion.
