Radek Stepanek of Czech Republic, who reached a career ranking high of 8 back in 2006, is planning to divorce his wife and former world no.7 Czech tennis player Nicole Vaidisova.
There are speculations that the reason behind this is another top WTA player Petra Kvitova.
Czech Davis Cup team spokesman Karel Tejkal confimed that the pair, who were married three years ago, have split. Vaidisova’s agent confirmed the split to TENNIS.com.
One Czech newspaper reported that Stepanek is now seeing 2011 Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova, who has split from her longtime boyfriend, another Czech player, Adam Pavlasek.
