Barbora Krejcikova surpasses $10 million in career prize money after Indian Wells
Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova won their milestone 15th WTA doubles title together in the desert—and met P!nk.
Published Mar 20, 2023
It had already been an incredible few weeks for Barbora Krejcikova, recently winning her first WTA 1000 singles title in Dubai—and along the way becoming the first player in WTA rankings history to defeat No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 at the same tournament in three consecutive days.
At Indian Wells, she piled on even more milestones.
First, Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova won their landmark 15th WTA doubles title together at the WTA 1000 event. They now have seven Grand Slam titles, one Olympic gold medal, one WTA Finals title, three WTA 1000s, one WTA 500 and two WTA 250s together.
Second, the pair met three-time Grammy winner P!nk, who was at the event throughout the second week checking out the world-class tennis on display. Here are the three of them about to get the party started:
There was one more thing to raise a glass to: with $96,955 for reaching the fourth round in singles (where she nearly beat Aryna Sabalenka) and $218,365 for the doubles title, Krejcikova became the seventh Czech in WTA history to surpass $10 million in career prize money.
