Strycova had just beaten Germany's Carina Witthoeft in two tough sets, and channeled her signature focus and intensity towards this new endeavor, engaging in the art of plating haute cuisine in a country known famous for its delicious delicacies.
The Czech veteran has had a lifelong passion for cooking, even joking that she may one day trade in her tennis kits for a chef's jacket.
"Maybe this could be a second career!" she joked.
