The Eisenhower Cup will certainbly draw lots of interested as some of the world's best players are set to compete in the event.
Krejcikova set to return to action
Krejcikova last played in Doha last week, where she suffered a round-of-16 defeat to Jelena Ostapenko. Krejcikova is set to return to action at the Indian Wells Masters, where she will be aiming to win her first title.
“There are still a lot of tournaments that I haven’t won yet," Krejcikova said recently. “There are still a lot of players that are ahead of me right now. It’s just a lot of motivation. I see other players are doing well, they are improving every single day.
I want to improve with them and I want to get better than them. That’s the biggest motivation. I don’t really have lack of motivation right now." Krejcikova was one of the top favorites for the Australian Open but she was beaten in the quarterfinal by Madison Keys.
"I have been struggling with something. Yes, it was happening and I didn't feel good. I just don't want to talk about it because I think Madison, she really deserves the win and she really deserves to get the credit.
That's how it is," Krejcikova claimed after the loss. Krejcikova's last two tournaments ended with an early exit and she will certainly be aiming to get back on the right track in Indian Wells.
