Andrea Hlavackova is one of the brightest doubles player on the WTA tour, she won 3 Grand Slam titles, 2 Fed Cup with the Czech team, and an Olympic silver medal with her partner Lucie Hradecka. But despite all these success, the player from Pilsen always stayed so humble and down to earth and tries to use her celebrity in the best possible way through her foundation.

As I said, Andrea Hlavackova could just have been a great doubles player and one of the sexiest women on the WTA tour, but no, she is not this kind of girl. She really wanted to do something useful and help a good cause. That’s why she created the Andrea Hlavackova Foundation in 2012. The aim of this foundation is mainly to collect financial resources and funds in order to help the families of handicapped kids and young handicapped people with integration into the society.

And to raise money for the kids, Andrea Hlavackova regularly organises auctions on her official website andreahlavackova.com with a lot of different signed stuff like posters, official tracksuits, rackets, racket bags, skirts… It appears to be a really great idea as it can make fans and kids happy at the same time 🙂 All profits from auctions go to Hájek Center, which is in Pilsen region. Hájek Center provides to divide intensive care for a handicapped child between family and care Center and so it reduces mental and physical stress of all members of the family.

Personally I sincerely admire the work Andrea Hlavackova is doing with her foundation, because it’s obvious that it’s not a commercial thing, she is 100% involved in every decisions and takes care of everything. I remember her saying me about her foundation “ it’s like my baby 🙂 ” And it’s true, if you want to help her foundation, you can easily get in touch with her and see what to do. I heard that Andrea expects that in the future her foundation will help other similar organizations not only in Pilsen region, but all over the Czech Republic… That’s all what I wish to them !

The Czech Republic has cruised into the Fed Cup final for the third time in four years this Sunday after Petra Kvitova gave her country the decisive point in the tie against the defending champion Italy in Ostrava. At the end of the weekend the Czechs won the tie 4-0 without losing a set in singles.

After 2 great wins from Lucie Safarova and Petra Kvitova on Saturday, the Czech Republic’s leader, Kvitova, ensured her nation will have a chance of winning its eighth Fed Cup crown after she ground out the win 6-3 7-5 against a fired-up Roberta Vinci this Sunday. Spurred on by the colourful make-shift musical band in the stands though, Kvitova repeatedly dug herself out of trouble with her booming serve.

“It was an unbelievable atmosphere but it was a very tough match for me against Roberta [Vinci] who is a very different player to Camila [Giorgi]. She returned very well and my serve didn’t help me as much as yesterday. It was difficult for me but I won the important points,” said Petra Kvitova.

The Czech Fed Cup team captain Petr Pala led his players to a dancing circle on the court before acknowledging the vocal home fans with a team bow. He said the victory gives his team the opportunity to relive great memories of their 2012 Fed Cup victory over Serbia. “It feels great, you never have enough. Really looking forward.

Depuis quelques années maintenant, Andrea Hlavackova fait partie des meilleures joueuses de double du monde et a remporté plusieurs Grands Chelems. Mais le week-end dernier c’est en Fed Cup que la jeune Tchèque a brillé, apportant pour la première fois de sa carrière le point décisif à sa nation. Retour sur cet évènement, mais aussi sur tout le travail accompli par Hlavackova durant la dernière intersaison afin de progresser en simple aussi. 

« Je ne m’attends pas à jouer, mais si cela est nécessaire, je suis toujours prête. » Voici ce qu’avait déclaré Andrea Hlavackova à la veille de la rencontre de Fed Cup qui opposait la République Tchèque à l’Espagne. Les trois rencontres de Fed Cup précédentes auxquelles Andrea Hlavackova avaient participées s’étaient toutes conclues avant le double décisif. Mais cette fois Hlavackova a enfin pu Lire la suite

Fed Cup – La République Tchèque également en demie finale !

Après un week-end très perturbé par la pluie, la République Tchèque s’est finalement imposée 3-2 face à l’Espagne à Séville. Les Tchèques de Petr Pala se qualifient donc pour une nouvelle demie finale de Fed Cup et défieront l’équipe d’Italie, vainqueur des USA, au mois d’avril.

Privé de leur leader Petra Kvitova, les joueuses Tchèque ont en plus dû faire sans Lucie Safarova qui est tombée malade quelques jours avant le début de la rencontre face à l’Espagne. C’est donc sur les épaules de Klara Zakopalova et Barbora Zhalavova Strycova que reposaient les espoirs Tchèque de ce week-end de Fed Cup. Le dimanche soir, un seul match avait été disputé en raison d’une pluie incessante, match remporté 6-1 6-4 par Carla Suarez Navarro face à Barbora Zhalavova Strycova, permettant ainsi à L’Espagne de mener 1 à 0 à l’issu de Lire la suite

Interview with Lucie Safarova

Lucie-Safarova-interview-doubles-hlavackova-Australian-Open-smile

Few days ago she won the doubles title in Sydney with her partner Timea Babos. Tomorrow Lucie Safarova will play her first round match at the Australian Open, the first Grand Slam of the season. While she was still in Sydney, Lucie Safarova has kindly taken a bit of her time to answer some questions for me about her off season, her new partnership with Andrea Hlavackova and her goals for this season.

For the first time of her career Lucie Safarova decided to spend her off season outside Czech Republic. With her coach Rob Steckley, Safarova worked hard for this new season in Florida. Even if it was tough to be far from home during christmas, Safarova believes this choice will help her : « There has been a lot of female players with whom I was able to play games, and there was a similar climate as in Australia, it will definitely help me. It was a different experience. I of course was very homesick. Christmas is not very nice on the plane. That was very sad because my family could only talk via skype, while we sang carols. They sent me a packet of sweets and wishes, it was really great. »

And for this new season Lucie Safarova made another change. After a year playing doubles with success with Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, she will now play with her great friend, olympic games’ medalist, and grand slams’ winner, Andrea Hlavackova : « Doubles is important for me too, but I want to enjoy doubles too, and with Andrea I feel it. There is a good connection. We agreed that Andrea adapts her plan and we play doubles together at major tournaments. Slams are the most important in the season. I certainly didn’t want to split up Andrea Hlavackova and Lucie Hradecka. Andrea felt that way, and so she decided… There is nothing negative. Girls had really great results together. »

Another resolution for Lucie Safarova is to be more patient on the court, and mainly to be healthy for the upcoming season : « I still try to play aggressively, and at the same time I want to be patient. I’ve been training it in Florida, I still want to improve this. I mainly want to be healthy, to me in the last few years it completely failed. If I could be at my maximum, that would be great. »
