Professional tennis player Andrea Petkovic won the Family Circle Cup by defeating Jana Cepelova in the final. However, while the physical reasons that she won were due to her overcoming the numerous injuries that have impacted her career since 2012 there is another reason that cannot be ignored. Andrea Petkovic rediscovered her reasons for playing tennis and it was never the money or fame that attracted this athlete with the statuesque beauty to the game of tennis, it was the love of the game of tennis. She plays the game of tennis for the same reason that a non-professional tennis fanatic plays the game and that is because they love the game.
Andrea Petkovic is a tennis player of immense potential as she was at one time the number nine ranked singles player in the world and prior to this win had won two previous WTA singles titles but this win is a demonstration of that old adage that 'love can overcome anything'. Over the past two years she has had to deal with several injuries that have made it difficult for her to play consistently at an elite level and that may have taken away some of the enjoyment of playing but now that joy has returned and she looks to be appreciating the game much more and all that it provides her.
She charmed the crowd following her win in the final with her genuine jubilation of winning the tournament as she ran a victory lap, and during an interview following the trophy presentation disclosed that she intends to celebrate this championship in ways she has not done before. The non-champagne drinking Andrea Petkovic stated she might just drink some champagne from the trophy and there might be reports of her dancing with flight attendants on the flight home.
The rediscovery of why she plays tennis has put the stunningly attractive and talented tennis player Andrea Petkovic back in the spotlight and her current and potential endorsers are ecstatic at the results as is she.
