Nike and Wilson quick to celebrate Petra Kvitova’s victory


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.”

  1. I like her game-style, but I think she is way too modest, I mean, girl you just won Wimbledon, you are special! 😀 And commercials are cool, a bit old-style. 🙂
