Nike has had a lot of reason to celebrate as we had an all-Nike semifinals at Wimbledon 2011 with Petra Kvitova, Maria Sharapova, Sabine Lisicki and Victoria Azarenka. When the world No.8 Kvitova lifted the greatest tennis trophy on Saturday, Nike already had a tribute to the Czech prepared. When Li Na won Roland Garros last month, Nike also had everything ready for the party.
The 21-year-old Kvitova was also given a tribute by her racquet sponsor, Wilson.
And here are Kvitova’s tributes to:
- modesty: “I don’t want to change, I just want to be like everyone else, I’m nothing special.”
- her game: “Some special tactics, it wasn’t.”
- stability: “I don’t care about the noise. When I play I don’t think about it. I just play my game. Azarenka was also noisy and I don’t care.”
