Re: Petrova "I dont want to have expectations or set goals"
It is very important for players to keep their momentum through to the next season, we saw what happened to Mary last year and this year (well soon last year too). One day she was in the YEC final, was in 2 GS finals, 1 GS QF, won titles. Then a little over a month later, just flipped, in AO she lost to Iveta Benesova, and we know the rest of the story. So for Nadia, I think the most important thing is for her to hold her head up. Yes it was a lost today, but so what!? She didn't loose to somebody who is significantly worse than her, she lost to Alicia Molik, once ranked top 10 not so long ago. So she shouldn't beat herself too much. Just focus.
