Q & A
Any previous Olympics Games competed in and results?
"2008 Olympic Games - second round; 2012 Olympic Games - second in group of three."
When and where you began playing, and why this sport?
"I started playing when I was 4 or 5 in my dad's club in Trencin, Slovakia. My mum and dad has also played badminton and therefore, naturally, I also wanted to play. We are a badminton family! Currently I enjoy the sport because I like to have an aim or a goal to work towards, and to be dedicated to something that can seem out of reach - but if you work hard for it, it will come to you. It is a big satisfaction to achieve something that you have been working hard on. This way of life, where I can focus on something until I achieve it, and then make new goals, is the best thing about being a professional badminton player."
Your equipment sponsor and current racket model?
"Babolat, X-Feel Blast"
Memorable sporting achievements?
"My biggest results are winning Dutch Open Grand Prix 2012, Russian Open Grand Prix 2015, Lagos International 2015 and Czech International 2011 on home ground. But also competing in the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games is on my list of memorable experiences."
Sporting awards / Honours (so far)?
"I have been Female Player of the Year many times in Czech and also been awarded the Achievement of the Year."
"I have both short and long term goals. But in general, I want to work hard on being the best I can."
