Barbora Krejcikova fears 3 bags might not be enough as No-no-no-no speech makes headlines too

Czech Republic’s tennis star Barbora Krejcikova shared a light moment in the presentation of the San Diego Open.

The 27-year-old defeated America’s Sofia Kenin in the final of the mega-event with a score of 6-4, 2-6, 6-4 to lift the title.

In the post-match presentation, Krejcikova had to interrupt the presenter to continue talking.

“No, no, no, no (laughing). I want to thank Pavel, he's right there we just started working together,” she said. “I mean the first couple of weeks was really, really tough and I didn't do well, it was after my injury. But I'm really really happy that this tournament, we have the trophy right now.”

The victory will give Krejcikova something to cheer about after a rather disastrous time on the court this year.

The Brno-born failed to qualify for the quarterfinal or beyond in any of the Grand Slams in 2023. Her best performance in any of the major events came in the Australian Open where she was knocked out from the fourth round after losing to America’s Jessica Pegula in straight sets with a score of 7-5, 6-2.

Krejcikova is a one-time Grand Slam winner. She achieved that feat in 2021 when she lifted the French Open after defeating Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova in the final with a score of 6–1, 2–6, 6–4.
