What to do When Your Fave is Losing (part 2)


Tennis is a brutal sport. Every week, every single player but one loses. However when you’re on a losing streak it must be soul destroying. At the moment. Barbora Krejcikova can’t get a win for love nor money. This week she was knocked out in the first round of Roland-Garros once again, losing in straight sets to Viktoria Golubic of Switzerland. Since winning the title in 2021 Krejcikova has not managed to get a win in singles – or doubles – at Roland-Garros. 

After a run to the quarterfinals at the Australian Open in January, Krejcikova has not won a match since Abu Dhabi in February – and even that was a withdrawal from Sara Sorribes Tormo. Her last completed match win was the Australian Open fourth round against Mirra Andreeva. Since that time she has missed a lot of tournaments due to illness and injury, and since coming back it has been loss after loss after loss with Barbora just not getting any run of form.
