Hobart R2: Cepede Royg def. Petkovic 6-3 0-6 6-4

Absolutely terrible. The last game was comical from both. Cepede was choking like hell but Petko was having none of it.

Disaster of a last game from both, Cepede Royg was so tight she could barely put a forehand in play and Petko still couldn't hold the game

Nice result for Vero, could tell this meant a lot to her

Hobart R2: (LL) Veronica Cepede Royg d. Andrea Petkovic by 6-3 0-6 6-4

What a win for Vero
She played really great in the 1st, then Petko starts to play better but at the end, Vero prevails!
Possible match-ups: (Q) Jana Fett or (WC) Lizette Cabrera

If she keep playing like today, she have a great chance to advance in SF.

She cant play the qualies in Australian Open now.

He probably read on google search or trip advisor that Istanbul is less expensive than Singapore.
Cool story bro.

VCR's "grunt" is blatant hinderance. If only making really loud noises whenever you feel like it wasn't 100% considered "grunting".

I know this is an overstated argument but it's hilarious how any random noises before, during, or after you hit the ball is considered okay. This is also having the pleasure to hear Pereira's "grunting"

As for the actual match, Petko's game has regressed so so so much. She looks like she cannot get any pace on any shot. Everything looks in slow motion.

Despite not making many winners, she's still an agressive baseliner, and she doesn't only win matches by waiting the opponent's mistake, though she can do that at times also.

The only Tokyo Petkovic will be playing in 2020 is a 25k.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.

Kind of funny to compare this to the Mertens/Vickery one. Cepede Royg in the same boat regarding AO qualies but she battles through an epic three-setter anyway.
