The WTA Tour is taking a break until 7 June due to the Corona pandemic. Petkovic is now also active as a presenter on ZDF and proves her all-round talent also in the corona crisis.
She founded the online book club “Racquet Book Club”. She has been toying with the idea of doing something like that for quite some time. “I thought it was so out of time. Nobody’s doing that. I’ll sit there with two fans”, Petkovic said. Her club currently has more than 2200 followers at Instagram.
