There is an endearing naivete to the new Wimbledon ladies’ singles champion Petra Kvitova, not least in the 21-year-old’s chosen mode of transportation to training from her modest flat in the tiny Czech border town of Fulnek each day. “I drive a Skoda,” said Kvitova, who made short work of Maria Sharapova on Saturday for her maiden grand slam win. “It’s a new one. I have seen some Skodas here. They are superb! I drive it to the tennis club to practise every day. I practise in Prostejov so I go home afterwards and it’s an hour by car so I drive. Will I buy a new one now? I don’t think so.”
