Everyone forgets about Petrova

The entire top 10 has been promoted to play in Dubai this week. David Mercer just said in the presentation ceremony that "every one of the top 10 ladies in the world playing here in Dubai"

One name - NADIA PETROVA

However David Mercer also said that doubles was just as important as singles too, so maybe we shouldn't pay too much attention to what he says

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Everyone forgets about Petrova

i guess its hard to see her as top 10 right now as she seems to have sneaked back in there and still isn't playing great tennis.

It is

At least the trophy presentations are done at the same time, I like that idea from Dubai.

She's won 77% (49/64) of her matches from Eastbourne last year on including 2 titles and 2 runnerups. That seems pretty good to me.

yes but not big titles, she won one of them whilst most other players were playing the olympics, shes been low profile, winning matches she should and a couple of smaller tournaments but not winning any big matches or big upsets.

Really??? I guess this goes with the theme of the thread, but I honestly have no memory of her winning any titles or being in any finals recently

Re: Everyone forgets about Petrova

Yeah, I kind of forgot about Nadia too

What is going on with her? Is she sick?

But then they didn't have Sharapova, so the statement is still not correct...


Oh Nadia I forgot about her too.. It would be nice to see her do well in IW.
