Petra Kvitova has been in imperious form at the Australian Open this year and the Czech’s Coach – Jiri Vanek recently spoke about Kvitova and how to get her match ready. “First day [in Melbourne] was pretty hot, and they played more than three hours.
And she lost," Vanek said ahead of Kvitova’s Australian Open women's final against Japanese Naomi Osaka. “She was close to turn around that match. And it sometimes happens like that. We just decided after the match straight away [to focus on another tournament in Russia].
And she won in St Petersburg, so probably she totally forget Australia and she start to be happy again,” he added. "We try in our team to smile everywhere. We make a lot of, I'm going to say, not bullshit, but we talk about ...
we make so many funny stuff around the court. She like it," Vanek said. "But sometimes [it] happen, like, two, three months she's not in the bubble and then she play different way”. "We just try to put her to her bubble.
Then she find her killer instincts. He then further dug into this matter. "Sometimes she's too much care about other people than herself," Vanek said. “So I just telling her every day – it's your tennis.
It's up to you. You are two-times Wimbledon champion. Just play for yourself”. "She was too much focused on some other people than herself. I think this just change. She's now taking [thing] much seriously about herself”.
