Will Petrova retire if she loses the first set to Dubois?

She tends to retire when losing the first set, especially before a GS (see her last few results in Sydney )

BTW she will avoid embarrassment too

Stéphanie was leading 4/2 and 30/00 but Petrova just hit 3 aces in a row to lead 5/4!

Re: Will Petrova retire if she loses the first set to Dubois?

It's hard to play 2 tournaments in California then fly to Canada and be ready to play.
That's why Sharapova stopped trying to do it last year.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Oh shut up already. Nadia is playing just pathetic though. She makes so many dumbass errors in matches and that forehand is just .

Re: Will Petrova retire if she loses the first set to Dubois?

yes Nadia tends to have this sort of result right before GS
it is almost as if she committed to the event but her heart is not in it

Re: Will Petrova retire if she loses the first set to Dubois?

Dubois makes me sick. Im sure all of you have seen this...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgpkUL5UpUw

She won 4 games, just 4. The way she was crying in the on court interview and was bragging in the van makes me wonna be sick.

Agreed. She's probably the most frustrating player to watch for multiple reasons.

Are you kidding? She was excited to make the third round for the first time ever, get way more prize money and points than she normally does, I mean sure it's shitty that Kim fell and everything, but you have to understand her excitement.

Re: Will Petrova retire if she loses the first set to Dubois?

I'm sorry to say that but Dubois does not have any abilities exept for playing the ball back into the field. No strength in her groundstrokes, no nothing.

She only lives on the faults of Petrova which is pathetic enough from Petrovas side.
