Nadia Petrova Is Winning Easily, But No One Seems To Care!

Have we all given up hope for La Petrova? She DOES have Maria in her quarter...

Petrova=Severe Western Grip. No chance on grass.

she'll lose as soon as she faces a decent player, she's been lucky with her draw...

Nad always does this. She wins easily and people start noticing and now that she's in the 4r and people are watching she'll probably fizzle away.

But hopefully she gets to play Maria and plays her tough

Nadya can do well at Wimbledon, but she needs to change her grass game for that.. She is not going to win it from the baseline, it is a pain to even see her getting under those low balls with that grip. But with her good serve and excellent volley skills she can play serve and volley just fine..

Maria beat Nadia on a hardcourt in 2003 when Nadia was #23 and Maria was #56. I HIGHLY doubt the result would be reversed at Maria's favorite tournament on Maria's best surface and Petrova's worst when Maria is on the verge of no. 1 in the world. However, nothing is impossible.

Ok sometimes i feel like everyone thinks maria is like a god on grass. Just because she got lucky last year and got past davenport thanks to rain and then played her best i have ever seen her play in the final doesn't mean she is Martina navratilova

um...she hasn't won a title yet. not even a tier 3. no one's gonna consider her a contender until she's in the finals and a set up.

ROCK ON:

Then you have Michael Jackson & that name speaks for itself, no hype needed at all.
