Petra Kvitova does our Olympic quiz


Petra Kvitova, a former Wimbledon champion, does The Tennis Space Olympic quiz.

Apart from tennis, the event I hope to watch during The Games: I will try to watch as much as possible on TV, but I’m staying in Wimbledon village so quite far from other sports unfortunately.
The Olympian I would most like to meet during The Games: Michael Phelps.
What the Olympics means to me: Everything! I love wearing the colours of my country and it is special to be here at Wimbledon and do that. I already had a taste of it in Beijing and I loved it.
If I wasn’t a tennis player, I would like to have competed in this Olympic sport: I love athletics, but I’m not very fast!
But definitely not this one: Basketball.
My Olympic hero from past Games: Jan Zelezny
The question that tennis players are most likely to be asked by other athletes: Um, no idea. Can I have your autograph?
