The face of any sport is usually the holder of certain titles. In cricket, it is the world cup winning captain, in football it is the Ballon D ‘Or winner and in tennis it is usually considered to be the Wimbledon champion. While Novak Djokovic is now undoubtedly the face of men’s tennis, the face of women’s tennis is by unspoken law, the legendary Serena Williams, the glamarous Maria Sharapova or the temperamental Viktoria Azarenka while a shy Czech lurks about somewhere in the shadow despite being the Wimbledon champion. Someone ought to tell Petra Kvitova that she has is the defending Wimbledon champion and can display some level of arrogance that Williams or Sharapova consider as their birthright.
