Barbora Krejčíková was born on December 18, 1995, in Brno, Czech Republic. She was raised and brought up by her parents Karel Hradecky (Father) and Pavla Hradecka (Mother). While she had not revealed many details about her early life which are not related to tennis, she does proclaim her mother Pavla has been her greatest supporter as she has been right beside her from the moment she stepped into the court.

Barbora Krejcikova developed her multifaceted game with the help of the former Wimbledon champion Jana Novotna, who served as her coach and mentor during her early years. When Krejcikova won the French Open 2021, hand pointing to the sky, she honored her late coach, who died of cancer in 2017.

Krejcikova had shown up with her parents at Novotna’s home in 2014 with a letter of introduction and a desire to find a tennis mentor who understood the basics as well Barbora’s style of play. Krejcikova’s parents have, right from her junior days, taken care of each of her needs as well as developed her mental fortitude very well. This really shows not only in the Czech’s gameplay but also in her humble behavior and respectful demeanor.
