Květoslava Peschkeová,[citation needed] (née Hrdličková; born 9 July 1975) better known as Květa Peschke, is a tennis player from the Czech Republic.[1]

Peschke plays mostly on the baseline, with her best shot being the forehand. Her favourite surfaces are hard court and carpet.[citation needed] At 2011 Wimbledon, Peschke claimed her first Grand Slam doubles title with Slovenia's Katarina Srebotnik. Peschke became the first Czech player to win the Wimbledon women's doubles title since Jana Novotná in 1998. Peschke and Srebotnik also took over world No. 1 ranking in doubles and they won a WTA Award as 'Doubles Team of the Year' in November 2011.

Career[edit]

Before 2003, Peschke was known as Květa Hrdličková.

2005–2010[edit]

In her first event of the season, she reached the quarterfinals of a Tier V event in Hobart. At Wimbledon, she reached the fourth round, defeating Vera Zvonareva and Conchita Martínez, a former winner. She reached her first semi-final of the year at a tier II event in Linz, defeating Elena Dementieva, Zvonareva and Ai Sugiyama. She also reached a quarterfinal at another Tier II event in Philadelphia before losing to Dementieva in three sets.

Peschke's doubles career has been more successful, including her top-10 debut in the doubles ranking in September 2006. In 2005, she won two WTA tour doubles titles in Paris (Tier II) and in Linz (Tier II) and reached the finals of four WTA tour doubles events. In 2006, she won WTA tour doubles titles, defending her 2005 title at Paris and winning in Dubai (Tier II). Her main successes in doubles came at three of the four grand slams, reaching the quarter-finals of the French Open, the quarter-finals of Wimbledon, and the semi-finals of the 2006 US Open. Her partner in each event was Francesca Schiavone. She also lost in the 2006 US Open mixed doubles final with Martin Damm to Bob Bryan and Martina Navratilova.

At the 2007 US Open, Peschke and Rennae Stubbs reached the doubles semifinals, before losing to Nathalie Dechy and Dinara Safina. The Peschke-Stubbs team won their first title in Stuttgart, Germany. In the final, the team defeated Chan Yung-jan and Safina in three sets. Other titles included Los Angeles and the 2007 Zürich Open.

Peschke partnered with Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan to reach the final of the mixed doubles at the US Open. In the final, Peschke and Qureshi lost to Bob Bryan and Liezel Huber in straight sets.

2011–2012[edit]

Peschke and Slovenia's Katarina Srebotnik were one of the most victorious doubles team in 2011. The pair won in Auckland, Doha, Carlsbad, Eastbourne and Beijing, they won their first Grand Slam title at Wimbledon, defeating Sabine Lisicki and Samantha Stosur in the final.

She won two doubles titles in 2012: Sydney with Srebotnik and Linz with Anna-Lena Grönefeld.
