After the attack in her own home, Kvitova made a statement in which she stated she has put this incident in the past and is moving on.
Kvitova added that her main priority now is in knowing the extent of the damage done to her left hand, and said that she has complete faith in doctors who are currently treating her.

Nonetheless, she is grateful to still be alive and that the injury could have been far worse, and though she’ll be needing to see some experts on this matter, she guaranteed her fans, friends and family that she is capable of handling this, and those who know her should not doubt such a thing.
