Petkovic on next opponent Caro "People who criticize her dont know much about tennis"

Love it


Quote:
- I'm really looking forward to meeting Caroline. You know, I really enjoy watching Caroline play because I love the way she bring herself in position for the ball and where she places the balls. I really enjoy to watch her matches and I believe I have a good sense of what makes her so good.

Is her playing style underrated?

- If people underrate it, they're really stupid. I'm sorry but everyone who knows a thing about tennis, and has played it themselves, has to recognize she plays so well and cleverly. People talk about her lacking power. But look at the power she has in her legs. She's the girl on tour who gets one more ball back than everyone else and that's what makes her so good. And then there's her mental game.

- It makes me sad when people focus on her not having won a slam, that she's boring and so on. Listen, she's 20 years old. 20! I have a sister who's 21 and I know what life experience she has. The fact that Caroline can handle all this stuff that comes with being number one at this age is just incredible, and people who criticize her don't know much about tennis.

Those are great comments.
Caroline reached the semis in 10 of the last 11 tournaments she played.
The players know that being in her section is a bad draw, and that she is tough to beat.
Some tennis 'fans' haven't figured that out yet.

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

Because she never played Wozniacki before. She´ll be annoyed tomorrow.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.

Caro is defintily better than Andrea Petkovic. But compared to everyone in her league: Her game is just boring to watch!

People love to see more passion, more variaty, more great strokes! Not a 6:0 without any winner and no first serves - because the first is a second one and still under 50 %...

Couldn't you just put it in one of the over 9000 Caro-threads already? For instance, the Caro haters thread seems very appropriate.

Re: Petkovic on next opponent Caro "People who criticize her dont know much about ten

I don't think all the "hate" towards Caroline is because people don't think she's good at tennis, but moreso because people think she's boring. The average TF tennis fan doesn't want to appreciate Caroline's footwork, they want to see fun tennis.

I'm not saying this is right or wrong, I'm just trying to find the origin of Caro-hate.

Fair comments from Petko.

Re: Petkovic on next opponent Caro "People who criticize her dont know much about ten

She's good at what she does. Already proven that..now it's time to go beyond the comfort zone. Even Nadal had to do this to start doing well on non-clay surfaces. Be aggressive, show some flair!

Always bet on black!

pretty much,but she is definitely playing more aggressive this year, but i
still don't like her.it's not easy to change some1 opinion after they strongly dislike you and i personally find her dad annoying as hell(just like djokovic dad) so that makes things even worse.and her fans on this board are overly protective() and even if there's not some caro hate thread they have to make new one about her greatness(or something like that) or mention her in threads where she doesn't belong and its obnoxious

It is stupid to underrate her yes. But there's nothing wrong with complaining about her boring game. It is a spectator sport after all.
