Barbora Krejčkova, the third largest in the world, claims that representing the Czech Republic made a lot of sense to her and there was no way to skip the Billie Jean King Cup. Last week, Krejčova represented the Czech Republic at the Billie Jean King Cup in Prague.
Other players in the WTA Finals decided to skip the Billie Jean King Cup and focus on the end-of-season event. “I have no intention of withdrawing from the Czech Republic every time I have the opportunity to represent the Czech Republic,” Krejčova explained, according to the WTA website.
“So for me it was really my heartfelt decision to want to represent my country, play this tournament, and play in our biggest arena, the Czech Republic of Prague. Especially when other girls of the previous generation, such as Petra and Lucy, are in the finals and winning trophies.
For me, it was already something special at the time. Really, really motivated. ”
Krejčova wanted to play both events
Krejčova couldn’t lead the Czech Republic past the group stage in Prague, but she still enjoyed representing her country in Prague.
“I really wanted to have this experience and I really wanted to represent my country. When I learned that it was going to be the Billie Jean King Cup there, I didn’t have any questions here in Guadalajara.
I’m going to do both tournaments, “added Krejčova. In other words, I think the decision was good. I think it came from my heart.
Krejčova, who will make his debut at the WTA Finals, will meet Anett Kontaveit at the opening round of the tournament.
