Petra Kvitova appeared in major international media outlets in 2012, highlights of which included an interview by Neil Harman, Tennis Correspondent of The Times (pictured above) ahead of her run to the semifinals of Roland Garros, and an interview by The Guardian’s chief sports interviewer, Don McRae, ahead of the defence of her Wimbledon title.
During her successful run on US Open hard courts, when Petra picked up two titles in Montreal and New Haven and became the Emirates US Open Series winner, Petra appeared in the New York Times in an article by Ben Rothenberg and her improved English earned her a write-up in USA Today by Bobby Chintapelli
Broadcast highlights included Sky Sports’ Special Report on Petra, a behind-the-scenes documentary on her life on Tour, which was filmed during Stuttgart, plus CNN’s feature on Petra’s relationship with Czech legend Martina Navratilova – the pair visited Wimbledon together during a lull in the 2012 calendar.
