Without fans present, Kvitova says its pointless to play majors.

"I have my age and of course I would like to play another Grand Slam, but if it's like this, I'd rather cancel the [majors]," Kvitova told the media in Prague before playing in an all-Czech tournament. "Playing a Grand Slam is the greatest thing there is, and playing without fans who are our engine doesn't look nice to me and the Grand Slam doesn't deserve it."
