Tennis has developed greatly among women, and as each day passes, a new star is born. Today, we will look at another female professional tennis player who rose to fame recently after claiming the 2022 Prague Open title. This is no other person than Czech-born tennis star Marie Bouzkova.
Marie is a professional female tennis player that hails from the Czech Republic. The 24-year-old was born on the 21st of July, 1998, into the family of Milan and Kveta Bouzkova. She started playing tennis at the Tennis Club owned by her parent in Prague and relocated to Florida in the US at 10 to continue her development at the Bollettieri Academy.
After two years, Marie left Bollietieri Academy and started working with her dad, Milan. However, she changed her coach in 2014 and began working with Cristian Requeni.
Marie has quite a remarkable junior career which saw her win the 2014 US Open Girls’ Singles title, defeating Anhelina Kalinina in the final.
Before she won the US OpenGirls’ title, she had already become a pro in 2013 and participated in various ITF tournaments. Marie claimed 12 Singles and three (3) Doubles at the ITF before focusing on WTA Tours.
She first made waves in 2019 at the Rogers Cup by making it to the semifinals. During the tournament, Marie whizzed past Sloane Stephens, Jeļena Ostapenko, and Simona Halep to set up a semifinal match against the former world number 1, Serena Williams. Although she lost the match, she could hold on to three sets and won the first set (6-1).
Overall, Marie has won one (1) Singles title and three (3) Doubles titles on the WTA Tours. She has also recorded a career highest ranking of 39 in the Singles and 24 in the Doubles. She currently ranks 40 and 51 in the Singles and Doubles categories.
Who Is The Current Coach Of Marie Bouzkova?
The current coach of Marie Buozkova is Christian Requeni, who works alongside her father, Milan. Christian started coaching Marie in 2014 after she briefly worked with her father. Christian shaped Marie into a world-class tennis player since she struggled on the ITF circuit before he came on board.
During their relationship’s first four (4) years, Marie recorded massive success on the ITF circuit, winning virtually all her ITF titles in both Singles and Doubles. In addition, she made a name for herself on the WTA Tour with consistent runs at various tournaments.
By and large, she won 13 Singles titles (12 ITF, 1 WTA) and six (6) Doubles Titles (3 ITF, 3 WTA) under the watch of Christian Requeni and her father. She also achieved her highest career ranking in Singles and Doubles through their guidance.
There are not so many details about Christain Requeni except that he was a former Spain professional tennis player and had the highest career ranking of 1006 in the ATP during his playing days. He also competed during ITF Tours, but we could not ascertain how many titles he won.
As stated earlier, Marie’s father, Milan Bouzkova, was a tennis club owner in Prague and started coaching his daughter at 13 when she left Bollietieri Academy. Unfortunately, we also could not obtain information about a possible tennis career, although he surely must have played tennis before considering the situation.
Aside from Christian and her father, other team members include her fitness coach, Mariano Hontecillas, Kveta Buozkova (her mother) as supervisor, Hassan Refay as a mentor, and so on. You can get full details about her team members on her official website through this link.
The only previous coach Marie had was her father, although he is still a key member of her coaching team. Marie’s father, Milan, was her head coach since she started playing tennis until 2014 when she decided to try out an external party. Good enough, the decision has been great since her game has improved.
