PRAGUE, (Reuters) – Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova is happy to finally play tennis again for fans around the world – even if they can only watch on television.
The world number 12 will headline an all-Czech tournament in Prague starting today without spectators, handshakes or the usual towel service.
She said finding rhythm and playing without support would be the hardest part returning.
“We will play some nice tennis… I think we are mainly here to bring tennis back not only to the Czech Republic, but to the world, too.”
The tournament, with eight players in both the men’s and women’s draw, will resemble regular tennis as much as possible.
