Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova will not be at the tournament this year. The 34-year-old former world number two recently accomplished a more important mission: she gave birth to a baby boy, named Petr.

Kvitova, 34, who last played in October 2023, announced her pregnancy on New Year’s Day.

The 2011 and 2014 Wimbledon winner announced the news on social media, with fellow mums Angelique Kerber, Barbora Strycova and Belinda Bencic joining the comments section.

Another Wimbledon powerhouse also announced she had become a mother during Wimbledon. Former world number 18 Alison Riske-Amritraja former Wimbledon quarter-finalist, shared the news of her baby girl, Calen Ann, born on July 5.

Riske, also 34, last played at Wimbledon last year.
