Following a fantastic season that saw her win her second Grand Slam title at the Wimbledon Championships, Petra Kvitova has made it clear that she has set her sights on becoming world No. 1 in the coming year.
In a blog post on her official website www.petrakvitova.net, Kvitova details her preseason training and how she is plans to prepare for 2015.
“I’m happy to say that my pre-season is going very well so far. I am healthy and working very hard on everything that I need to improve for 2015. My new fitness coach Alex Stober has been absolutely great. He has a lot of experience and he knows what to do, he arrived with a very specific plan to make me stronger and faster on court. It’s also great that he is a physio as well because he knows exactly how a tennis player’s body is working.”
The Czech No. 1 compiled a 43-16 record in 2014, which included three titles on the WTA Tour. She won the Wimbledon title with a thrashing of Canadian starlet Eugenie Bouchard. She also helped her nation win yet another Fed Cup title at the end of the season.
With that in mind, Kvitova hopes the coming season will bring with it even more success.
“Next year I have some clear goals in my mind. I want to have better results at the Grand Slams and of course one day I want to be Number One in the world. I have been close already, but I really hope that day will come. Those clear goals are motivating me to work harder than ever before to get ready for 2015.”
