Kvetoslava Peschke, or Kveta Peschkeova, is a female professional tennis player who was born on July 9, 1975 in the Bilovec Czechoslovakia. She is best known for her forehand playing skills and for her baseline style of play. Standing at 5 feet and 5 inches, Peschke is known for being one of the older players who are playing in the WTA tour.
As of 2004, Peschke was playing mainly on the ITF Circuit. By the time of the 2005 season in tennis, she gained popularity for being one of the older players instead of the usual young age of players starting to play tennis. After her first event of the said season, she was successful enough to reach the quarter finals of Hobart’s Tier V event.
Peschke also played at the Australian Open, but was defeated by the No. 3 seed, Anastasia Myskina of Russia. Although she was not able to get very far with any of the tournaments, she was able to go against some of the top players such as Lindsay Davenport, who was the No. 1 seed at the time, and No. 10 in the world Vera Zvonareva.
By 2006, Peschke had a bit of trouble as she only reached the second round of five tournaments as well as 14 first round defeats at WTA events. However, she did reach the semi-final round of the event held at Luxembourg sometime in September of the said year. During the tournament, she was able to defeat Dinara Safina in a straight set, but went down fighting against Alyona Bondarenko.
Currently Peschke has a professional record of 322 victories over 213 losses in women’s singles, and has won 1 WTA title and 10 ITF titles. Though Peschke is not exactly up on the Top 20 list for women’s singles, her performance in doubles is more impressive. In fact, she is currently ranked at No. 1 as of July 4, 2011, and has a total of 21 WTA titles with 8 ITF titles.
2011 was an exceptionally productive year for Peschke as she was able to win the 2011 Wimbledon Open title in Doubles, and reach the semifinal round of the Australian Open in the said year.
