Adding modeling to your biography is a must when you reach tennis heights. Some players enjoy that part of the job more than the others. The 2011 Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova, recently honored by the ITF world champion title, had a modeling experience last month and it sucked the energy out of her.
The 21-year-old Kvitova had her hair and makeup done for a photo spread in iSport in her native Czech Republic and after the experience she realized that tennis racquet will remain her work tool of choice, designer clothes will be put aside.
Kvitova was exhausted after hours of posing and preparations for the photo shoot and realized that it lasted longer than a tennis match.
It does not seem it, but to hold some poses and set [oneself] as a photographer wants is quite challenging. I must say that the role of tennis players I like more than the role of models.
The Czech was wearing dresses from designer Steilmann. You can see the full photo shoot here. (source: Tennis.com)
