Breaking news: Petra Kvitova on entry list for RG

I think this deserves own thread. Looking like recovery is going faster than everybody could think even she will not finally appear in RG. Such a positive news.

petra.kvitova Hello everyone! I wanted to provide a quick (and hopefully positive) update for you. My name will appear on the entry list for Roland Garros tomorrow because, as the entry deadline approached, I had made good progress in my recovery process and I want to give myself every last opportunity to be able to compete at one of my favourite events. This unfortunately does not mean necessarily that I will be ready to play in Paris, but that I'm doing everything possible to give myself the chance and keep a positive mindset. There remains a long road ahead but I wanted to share this update with you. Thanks for your continued support and I hope to see you soon, Petra 😘🎾

As much as I want to see Petra come back, I think she should skip RG.

Re: Breaking news: Petra Kvitova on entry list for RG

It deserves it's own thread because other thread was too much topics in one already. And this is about return, not about knife attack anymore. Her return will be sooner than later.

I hope she returns to play RG, even if she loses 1st round easily, she will have some warm-up before Wimbledon.

Peak Petra is suited for both FO/Wimbledon titles.

But as she's barely holding her racquet, i would prefer for her to play grass warm-up instead.

It's still in speculations. She may play RG but she may even skip Wimbledon. No one knows.

Kvitty!!!!
Wonderful news to even hear her talk about coming back so soon. Of course it might not happen, but at least there is a high expectation level to her playing this summer. Can't wait to see her back and competing!

It's her clone sister Sunshine, to play in the New Era when Serena retires.

Peak Petra will guard the slams, though.

Good idea, @Molok !

What a breaking news I'm very happy for Petra, I definitely wasn't counting with a comeback this year.

Amazing surprise #pojd

Re: Breaking news: Petra Kvitova on entry list for RG

A Czech journalist on Twitter has said it is "completely unrealistic" and "just a PR move." The translation is a bit woolly but while it would be wonderful to see Petra back soon, I'm not getting my hopes up.

The 'PR move' conspiracy makes no sense. I believe Petra.

I doubt it was Petra who posted that IG message. I'm just going to wait and see.
