According to Czech news sources, Petra Kvitova and Radek Stepanek are a couple no more. Tyden news website has quoted a representative of both players as saying, "I can confirm that a partnership Radek Stepanek and Petra Kvitova ended." Nova Sport quoted Petra Kvitova explaining that the tennis commitments that brought them together eventually split them up. "To combine a career with fellow top tennis players sometimes life is simply impossible," she said.
I've got to be honest, they were never my favourite tennis couple and with Stepanek dating Kvitova so soon after splitting with Nicole Vaidisova it didn't seem likely to last. Stepanek has a history of dating tennis players - Martina Hingis, Vaidisova and Kvitova - so we will see who he goes for next!
