Czech tennis player Petra Kvitova, world number 12, took advantage of Tuesday’s decision by authorities in her country to allow the reopening of sports facilities to return to the field, but acknowledged that she has “zero motivation”, while the WTA circuit schedule remains unclear for 2020, informs AFP.
“Honestly, it’s very strange, I have zero motivation and I don’t know why I train. I’m just trying to stay in shape,” Kvitova, 30, said in a video recording released by his club, Sparta Prague.
“I will not play for the moment for the slag, because the tournament at Roland Garros has been postponed. The Wimbledon has been canceled, so there is no problem playing on the grass. We will see what will happen for the rest of the year, if it continues play or not, “said the Czech, double winner at Wimbledon (2011, 2014).
“It’s a very negative thing, but I always focus on the good side of life. Like many in the circuit, I spend a lot of time traveling abroad, so I like to stay home,” she insisted.
