Prague:

Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova will team up with countryman Radek Stepanek to play the mixed doubles at the London Olympics.

Kvitova, who also considered Tomas Berdych as a partner, announced her plan on Friday.

Stepanek won his maiden Grand Slam title at the Australian Open when he and Leander Paes of India won the men's doubles final.

Kvitova says, "As an experienced doubles player, Radek will be the leader."

Kvitova and Berdych played together in January to give the Czech Republic its second Hopman Cup title.

Berdych has already announced he will play the men's doubles with Stepanek at the London Games.
