What does Marketa Vondrousova’s tattoos mean?

Vondrousova’s tattoos have continued to catch the eye of many tennis fans throughout the tournament.

The 24-year-old first got her tattoo at the age of 16 and has had several since.

Many fans have been wondering what is inked above her right elbow. The artwork reads: ‘No rain, No flowers.’

The meaning behind those words is that even the toughest times can be followed by success.

‘I think you know, without failure there is no success, so you have to go through some hard matches. Even if you lose especially, if you keep believing in yourself and yeah, this is the reward,’ she told reporters back in 2021. 

Vondrousova also has had her lucky number 13 tattooed. After the Tokyo Olympics, where she won a silver medal, she added the five Olympic rings.

What has Vondrousova said on them?

The Wimbledon finalist recently revealed that her tattoos are like ‘art’.

Vondrousova visits several tattoo parlours near her home in Prague and has become friendly with the female staff there. 

‘It was my birthday gift. I don’t know; I just felt like I wanted more after that. Now, to me, it’s also art, and I respect those who practise it. I frequently visit three or four tattoo artists. Some are in Prague, and most of them are girls.’ 

‘For me this is also art. I just like it and I appreciate the people who do it. I feel like it is work and it is also art.’ 

The Czech has an agreement with her coach that he will have a Wimbledon badge tattooed on his body if she wins the title on Saturday. 

‘I have a bet with my coach.

‘If I win a Grand Slam, he’s going to get one, so I hope I will,’ she said after Thursday’s defeat of Elina Svitolina.

‘We’ll see what happens and what I’ll do,’ she added, on whether she would join her coach in adding to her collection.
