Petra Kvitová is known for her fast left-handed serve. At the 2011 Wimbledon Championships, Kvitová had 36 aces the third-most of any woman. Her height is a help in the speed of her serve, there are few female players as tall as Kvitová, and her left-handedness allows unusual shots, such as the slice out wide to the backhand of right handed players. Her body-serve is also effective. Kvitová is known primarily as a groundstroke player, with a game based on flat forehands and backhands, and her specialty is her forehand down the line. Kvitová's weaknesses are considered to be her net play and her lack of speed.
