Petkovic: Best Grand Slam draw ever?

Petkovic was ment to play Greta Arn in the first round but Arn got injured and now she's playing lucky loser Stephanie Foretz today.

Her draw WIMBLEDON 2011:

1st round vs world # 139

2nd round vs world # 122 or 124

3rd round vs world # 74 or 89

4th round another gimme with Schiavone struggeling on grass and grass court specialist Makarowa out in R1

Quarterfinal: probably the first Top 50 player but still great chances cause Azarenka, Pavlyuchenkova & Co are no grass court specialists either - but maybe Hantuchova

... tbc



This could easaliy be her 3rd major quarterfinal in a row!

She will continue to be "lucky" until she has to play a Williams. At the end it doesn't matter, because this will be another all-Williams final. Anything in between is just distraction.

Plus: Wimbledon quarterfinal would probably mean top ten for Petkovic!!

First German since Graf & Huber to be top ten??

It took only one post for a Williams fan to make it about them.

Re: Petkovic: Best Grand Slam draw ever?

What about Sharapova's Roland Garros draw?Or Wozniacki's US Open draw?

These sorts of things happen, this might be the easiest section at Wimbledon, but there's always an easier section in each Grand Slam (as other tournamets are smaller and thus they are more homogenious).

Pironkova.Kostova.Petrova.Kerber.Stosur.Jankovic.A &URadwanska.Kuznetsova.
Pavlyuchenkova.Li.Zvonareva. Zheng.Date-Krumm.Kvitova.Muguruza.

Vesnina.Niculescu.Falconi.Voskoboeva.Paszek.Shvedo va.Voegele
TennisTipping.Singles(#16|06.08.2012) ITF Fukuoka, Roland Garros|RU ITF Cali
TennisTipping.Doubles(#82|09.04.2012) ITF Casablanca (w/diego36arg), ITF Cagnes-Sur-Mer (w/Frederik), 2010 Osaka (w/CapriatiRules)

She's always getting cakewalk draws in slams. Nothing new.

Re: Petkovic: Best Grand Slam draw ever?

Andrea lost to Chakvetadze last year. I dont think she's ever won a main draw Wimbledon match.

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
