SW19

Hi everyone,

I wanted to write and let you know what I have been up to since I played that amazing match on Centre Court last Saturday!

The first time I won Wimbledon I didn’t really celebrate because everything just happened so quickly. This time I managed to have a couple of glasses of champagne back at the house with my team, but then I was so tired that I still ended up going to bed early!

To tell you the truth, I did not sleep well during the second week of Wimbledon so my mind and body were really exhausted and ready to crash.

On Sunday, I had a fun day shopping in London (I bought myself some earrings as a special present) and then it was time to get ready for the Wimbledon ball. They bring in a stylist and the dressing room downstairs at the All England Club is full of dresses to choose from. I picked a classic black and white ball gown and then had my hair and make-up done, it was so much fun to have a girly day.

The ball was at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden and it was such a beautiful location. I went with all my team and it was so nice to see them dressed in black tie with big smiles on their faces. I was a bit nervous about doing the speech in front of everyone but it went pretty well and I think I did a good job with my English J

We got home around 2am and then had to get up at 7am to finish packing up the house and then catch our flight home to the Czech Republic. I carried my trophy with me on the flight and we had a lot of fun taking pictures and celebrating some more J

Since I got home I have done a couple of press conferences, but I have really tried to keep a low profile and just quietly get some rest and take it all in. Of course one of the first things I did was to watch a replay of the final on TV – I still can’t believe how well I played! – and then I just wanted to see my parents again and enjoy all the emotions.

On Sunday I made an appearance in my home town of Fulnek and it was so amazing to see all the support I have from my small town. Lots of people came out to see me, we did a Q and A on the stage and then there was a Czech band playing.

The first time around I wasn’t really ready for all of the attention and the media, but this time I am feeling that I know more what to expect and how to cope. I am more experienced and mature and know that I should just keep my team and family close to me and just go about my life like normal Petra J

Which means that it’s time to get back to training…

Thanks for all your support along this wonderful journey,

Petra

  • Yu,

    Hi Petra,
    Congratulations on your second Wimbledon title!!! You have been my favorite plater in the world since you reached the semi-finals in 2010. I did believe that you would win Wimbledon after you lost a tough 3 set 3rd round in French Open. So glad that injury you got in Eastbourne didn’t trouble you in Wimbledon. I was very nervous watching you play against Venus on TV, but you were terrific. In fact, all of your matches at Wimbledon were very clean, with so many more winners than unforced errors. I watched your final several times on TV and it was truly one of the great performances in a major final in history! I also watched your interviews during Wimbledon and after the final. All of them were fantastic! I’m sure you will be World #1 soon, with many more major titles if you continue to work hard, keep healthy and stay injury free! It was great watching all your matches and your victory has made me very happy! Thank you! By the way, my husband and I are hoping to travel from our home in South Florida to Montreal to see you in August.
    All the best,
    Yu

    Hi Petra.
    Well done for winning a second title at Wimbledon.
    I have a very good friend who lives in Prague and I visit her as often as I can.
    I love the Czech Republic and have met some very nice people there.
    I can’t believe how well you played in the final, I’m sure it wasn’t easy but you made it look that way.
    You are a lovely person & a great ambassador for the sport & for the Czech Republic, you are welcome to win Wimbledon as many times as you want to.
    Best wishes,
    Mark

  • Katie Bezanov,

    Dear Petra,
    First of all I would like to congratulate you on your excellent success in Wimbledon. You really did an amazing job and not just with your English. From a little provincial girl you have transformed to a beautiful professional lady who is self-confident, experienced and who shines! :-) I have to admit that I am not a big tennis fan but I was watching your last three matches and it was really exciting. I was so very much proud of you and of being Czech. And when you stood side by side with Novak, my husband (Serb) and myself, we were indeed the proudest people in whole London. :-) I would love to thank you for representing our small beautiful country and wish you, your family and your team all the best.
    Kind regards
    Katie Bezanov

  • Barbara McMilan,

    Congrats Petra, you are beautiful and talented! I’m thrilled for you, can’t wait to see you at the U.S. Open!

  • Arun Das,

    Eugenie is a very good player. Her agreesive play has helped her reach finals in Wimbledon. But she did not stand a chance against you. She must be still wondering what hit her. You were that devastating! I always thought you are a beautiful girl with good tennis. But you are capable of great thing as demonstrated in Wimbledon finals. Looking forward for your dazzling display in future.

  • Patricia Shadforth,

    Petra, I have been a huge fan since I first saw you play in 2010. I am an old great grandmother in Australia and hope I live long enough to see you win many more titles. You are such a wonderful representative for women’s tennis. So much talent and so modest. I wish you a wonderful life.

  • Sreekanth Reddy,
