The Petkovic dance

Just a bit of fun, or disrespectful to your opponent? I know what I'd be thinking if someone did that in my face after winning.

Re: The Petkovic dance

I dont think its disrespectful I just think she looks like a douche. She is a educated, grown women have some self respect.

Re: The Petkovic dance

Main thing that annoy's me is that she is using this 'superstition' excuse, but she obviously does it just to rub it in and get attention from the media.

Re: The Petkovic dance

I hope Li Na mocks her dance in the quarters

tbh, I prefer Ivanovic's fistpumps more

Re: The Petkovic dance

the fans of her losing opponents will always hate it

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: The Petkovic dance

If she keeps doing it in every match she wins, it will look old and obnoxious. Stop it before it's too late. Please. Because you actually have a nice personality.

Re: The Petkovic dance

It's just a bit of fun. Rude is loudly proclaiming "this is my home" after beating an opponent who said that in a interview.

Schnyder Jankovic Petrova Kvitova Schiavone

Zvonareva Kleybanova Mattek-Sands Strycova

Niculescu Lisicki Razzano Koukalova Errani Pironkova

Re: The Petkovic dance

It's amusing to watch, but yeah, if I was her opponent I'd probably want to slit her throat or something

Re: The Petkovic dance

I don't like it, nor do I take offence to it but I just find it a bit gimmicky. I really like Andrea's personality but I could definitely live without the dance.
