"I have started with tennis when I was four years old. Before I first started, I had always asked my parents if I could try it. So we tried it. First, I've played in Komarno and later in Piestany (for 2 years). I have been a member of TC EMPIRE Trnava club since 2013. My parents were interested in sport too, but not professionally. Father was doing judo, mother loved basketball. I remember that at the beginning, I liked that the ball always came back to me. I still love it."

"In the summer, when I was 6 years old, I played the third tournament in my career. We played in Piestany. I lost the first round, but won the consolation prize. At that time it was a surprise for me. I enjoyed winning and receiving rewards, so I continued playing. Later I played successfully at tournaments in the Czech Republic. It was a motivation for me because I received trophies and prizes. The win at the Indoor Championship in Slovakia in singles and in doubles in 2014 is one of my greatest achievements. My next big success was at U14 European Junior Championships where I was doubles quarterfinalist."

"I'm glad that I'm where I get the support. Coaches use to go with us to the tournaments, they take care of us, we have club physiotherapist. Trainings are at a great level, we also live here. I moved here just by myself, my mom could not come over because of her job and she stayed in Komarno. I live at the hotel and I also visit the school in Trnava. Thanks to the work of the coach, I've definitely improved my game. My coach Juraj Jancovic is great – as a coach and as a person, too."

Juraj Jancovic: "Lenka is very talented, she has dominant service game and forehand. She is a type of the player that is active and very aggressive. We are working on better assertiveness, activeness on the legs and distribution of power. The year 2014 was excellent for her, after her quality winter training she won the Slovak Indoor singles title. She will focus on the U18 ITF tournaments now."
