We caught up with Ksenia to get some insight to this fierce competitor.

What is your favorite thing to do off court?

Ksenia: Hm, I love to sing a lot, and I’m pretty good with that! I like to go shopping with my friends, and spend time with my family…. it’s really nice, cause they live in another country so the time is special

What makes you laugh?

Ksenia: Actually my friends, my small brother, I mean people who are around me (my team), I really enjoy every moment I’m with them

What is your favorite thing to cook?

Ksenia: I can cook a lot of things, but the best is Borsch (Russian soup)….so inevitably I will be a good wife in the future lol

Who is your favorite actor/actress?

Ksenia: My favourite are the Russians. I think they are the best ones, but I’m a patriot.

How long have you been with Wilson?

Ksenia: Such a hard question.. I’ve been playing with Wilson all my tennis years, I love it so much.

What do you love about your Wilson racquet?

Ksenia: Everything is perfect, the rackets, the Wilson Team…. I am really happy that I’m a part of it.

Swinging her Wilson Tour BLX tennis racquet, Petra Kvitova captured the Madrid Open singles title for her third title of the year, catapulting her into the Top 10 on the WTA Tour rankings for the first time in her career.

“Top 10 is a great milestone for any player, but Petra is young, so this is only the beginning,” said Wilson Tour Director, Renaud Vallon. “Her game is so well rounded that she can do well on any surface and we look forward to seeing her continue to reach new heights.”

It has been a steady rise to the top of the WTA Tour for the 21 year old Petra Kvitova. In 2008, she reached the Top 50 for the first time in her career and went on to win her first WTA Tour title in Hobart in 2009. In 2010, she reached the Top 40 for the first time in her career after reaching her first Grand Slam semifinal at Wimbledon. This year, she has been a consistent performer on tour, taking titles in Brisbane, Paris and this week in Madrid.

It clear there is no stopping this rising star…Go Petra!!!
