Barbora Krejcikova can often be seen courtside watching her opponents play. It’s not something top players do. If they need to scout other players, they send their coaches. But no Krejcikova.
She was recently asked why she spends so much time watching other matches. Krejcikova said
I love tennis since a very young age. It was always my passion. When I have this opportunity to actually watch it live, to see all these girls that are top 10, top 5, they play against each other, I just love that
Barbora Krejcikova won the 2021 French Open singles title. She has also won seven grand slam titles in doubles with Katerina Siniakova. She also has three grand slam titles in mixed doubles. she won the gold medal in doubles at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. With so much success under her belt, it’s so refreshing to see her courtside for many matches.
Krejcikova beat Iga Swiatek at the Dubai Tennis Championships final in straight sets. Swiatek had been on an incredible run for the last few weeks until she ran into Krejcikova.
