Czech tennis player Petra Kvitova reacted Wednesday to the conviction of the man who stabbed her in December 2016, Radim Zondra.
"I got to know this this morning," Kvitova said after the match against Ashleigh Barty in the quarterfinals of the Miami Masters. "I accepted the news. I am satisfied with the news and I am happy to be finished, "admitted the Czech tennis player.
It is recalled that this Tuesday, the Czech court sentenced to eight years in prison Radim Zondra, who in December 2016, wounded with a knife the tennis player Petra Kvitova, during a robbery to the residence of the current number two of the world hierarchy.
Zondra, for whom the Public Prosecutor's Office had asked for a 12-year prison sentence, could appeal against the sentence, decided today by a court in Brno.
On December 20, 2016, Radim Zondra, who always pleaded not guilty, injured Kvitova in her left hand when she defended herself during an assault on her home in the Czech city of Prostejov.
Kvitova, who is left-handed, suffered injuries to her five fingers and two nerves of her left hand, which forced her to undergo surgery and a five-month sports stop.
