The Slovakian tennis player defeated Maria Sharapova and Agi Radwanska to reach her first grand slam final, where she faced a tougher and more experienced Li Na. Thanks to her strong showing in Melbourne this year, she has now reached the quarterfinals of every major. She is only 5-foot-3, so she compensates for her small stature with an incredible work ethic. She puts in about hour days when she practices, about half of which is done working on her fitness. She has built her lower body into an incredibly powerful base that helps supply her power on the court.
