Marketa Vondrousova has not only made history as the first unseeded Wimbledon champion in the Open Era but also stands out as the most tattooed winner of the prestigious grass-court Grand Slam. With an impressive collection of tattoos adorning her body, the Czech tennis player admits to losing track of their exact number. Let’s have a close look at the WTA star’s inks.

“Search and you will find” says one of several inspiration quotes featured on Vondrousova’s body.

Her right forearm bears a reminder to take life “one day at a time,” accompanied by two dice, perhaps symbolizing her ability to embrace uncertainty with a touch of luck.

On the back of her left forearm, a comforting message “it’s ok” is joined by a serene sleeping angel, offering solace during tough times.

Vondrousova’s left arm showcases more tattoos – “Let them be them, let us be us” and “golden” alongside a sitting fairy, while a letter “F” and a skeleton’s hand clutching four aces in poker add to her intriguing ink collection.

During the Wimbledon trophy ceremony, Vondrousova said that the first thing she’s looking forward to is a glass of beer after tense two weeks of competition. She may also get another tattoo to celebrate her triumph, but her coach will definitely be inked.

“I made a bet with my coach. He said that if I win a Grand Slam he’s going to get one also. So I think we’re going to go tomorrow,” Vondrousova said. The coach didn’t seem too pleased.

  1. Let’s be real, it looks messy af
    Looks like a scribble of toddlers from afar.
    Too much tattoos is not for everyone! Let alone women, it takes their purity away.

  2. I don’t like her tattoos, but who says that women have to be pure? Why not men, too? The usual stereotypes…

  3. I can’t say that I am, personally, a great fan of tattoos, but, as somebody who knows bits of Czech, I’d have loved it if they’d been done in Czech, which would have been a linguistic education for all followers of the game. I pictured „Bez déšťem žádné květy“ for “No rain, no flowers”.
