Unhappy Nadia Complains Of Fatigue, Yet Keeps Playing More Tournaments AND Doubles

Nadia, if you are so tired and fatigued, maybe you should not play 26 tournaments a year. Plus you are in the doubles SF w/ Anna-Lena.

Petrova wins 13th straight on clay

May 12, 2006


BERLIN (AP) -- Nadia Petrova extended her clay-court winning streak to 13matches, struggling past fellow Russian Dinara Safina, 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 Friday toreach the German Open quarterfinals.

Petrova will play Li Na of China, who reached the semifinals of a majorevent for the first time by fighting off three match points in a 2-6, 7-6 (3),(7-6 (1) win over fourth-seeded Patty Schnyder. "It was hard, exciting," Li said. "Compared to the last two times I lostto her, I had a good philosophy. I was calm concentrated."

Martina Hingis will face top-ranked Amelie Mauresmo later Wednesday, whileJustine Henin-Hardenne continues her pursuit of a fourth title here againstSvetlana Kuznetsova.

The fourth-ranked Petrova lost the first set and trailed 3-0 in the secondbefore rallying. A day earlier at this key French Open tuneup, she complainedof fatigue after playing more than two hours and three sets against Zheng Jie of China. "Maybe I won't get any rest until I end my career," said Petrova, who wonclay-court events at Amelia Island, Fla., and Charleston, S.C.

Hingis beat Elena Dementieva on Thursday, the third top 10 player she hasbeaten since returning after a three-year absence from the game.

Seriously. She didn't even play last week. Zheng made her tiried, jeeze. She is not used to having to play such a long match early in the tournament.

I think Nadia is more tired MENTALLY than PHYSICALLY

All the pressure from the Fed Cup is really weighing on her. She took a week off to try to recover but not sure if it helped. This week she has been pushed to the brink of elimination by Zvonareva, Zheng and Safina

I just think its funny. She is playing the best tennis of her career and you claim she is making all these mistakes with scheduling. She is on a 13 match win streak...I wouldn't question her strategy.

Yes. She should cut down. She is working hard though. She could surpass Maria as the Russian #1 anytime soon too.

Didn't she lose in Fed Cup?

Anyway, Petrova was clearly beat in the FCC final, and she was dang tired against Justine in Fed Cup. Now she's fatigued and complaining after a 3-set match. It's clear she needs a break, for whatever reason. Is she entered in the Rome tournament, too?

And how is any of this jealousy/complaining. Nadia plays more tournaments than pretty much any other top player, and she plays doubles in nearly all of them. It's just logical that, if she's tired, she would need to cut back on one or both.

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived
