Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova announced on social media that she married her coach Jiri Vanek, who trained Karolina Pliskova in the past, on the 22nd of July by sharing a photo of her and her husband wearing wedding attire.
"Mr and Mrs," Kvitova captioned the photo.
Here is how some WTA stars reacted to the news:
- Iga Swiatek: "Congratulations!
I'm happy for you"
- Angelique Kerber: "Congrats"
- Billie Jean King: "Congratulations!"
Kvitova got engaged one year ago
Kvitova and Vanek announced their engagement about a year ago at Wimbledon. "Happy news we wanted to share with you guys… I said ‘yes’ in my special place,” said Kvitova.
After being easily defeated at Wimbledon by Ons Jabeur, Petra Kvitova took some time to relax and, it seems, to get married.
"Oh Wimbledon, it always hurts so much to lose here, but I will never stop loving the challenge of playing on grass and the incomparable feeling of competing on Centre Court. I’m disappointed that I couldn’t find a way to raise my level yesterday but all credit to Ons, a fantastic player and person.
Now time for some rest and relaxation before hitting the hard courts," Kvitova said after losing.
