Petra has hit the front and back pages for a number of reasons over the years.
Who was Petra Kvitova engaged to?
In December 2015 Petra happily announced her engagement to Czech hockey player Radek Meidl.
But they broke up just a few months later.
Just before the split she explained: “He’s an ice hockey player, and he understands my job and I understand his. But it’s still very different.
“He’s playing in the winter in the Czech Republic, and I’m playing in the summer which is weird.”
Who else has Petra dated?
The first relationship she was publicly known to have gone into was with fellow Czech tennis player Adam Pavlasek, who she dated from 2011 to 2013.
After the two broke up, the next boyfriend was another Czech tennis star, Radek Stepanek, who also has a history of dating tennis players. Their relationship lasted a year.
What else is the Czech tennis star famous for off the court?
Sadly, a robbery at her apartment in Prostejo in 2016. Petra suffered multiple lacerations to the tendons and nerves on her left hand and fingers while trying to defend herself against knife-wielding attacker who left with around £150.
Her injuries put her put of action for 15 months.
