Czech tennis player Petra Kvitova told about her character.
“Now I’m not so modest. At the very beginning of my career I didn’t speak English very well. I was new, so I was shy and shut off everyone. Sometimes it happens now, but now I know all the journalists.
I used to be incredibly nervous when dealing with the press, even more than on the court. Learning English helped me a lot.
Previously, I did not go anywhere, so I was not used to increased attention. I only did tennis, but then around me a lot of things started to happen. It was hard for me. Sometimes I prefer not to talk to anyone, but it is often difficult for me to find a topic for conversation, ”journalist Tumaini Carayol quotes Kvitova.
