Cetkovska has such awesome...

shot selection, anticipation, skills, court coverage, variety.

It seems the girl ALWAYS hits the right shot at the right time. Such a cool and clever player.

She can hit every shot I can think of in tennis (except the hot dog one which is overrated and not useful anyway) and hit in such an efficient way.

She plays like a much better/improved version of Radwanska.

Your thought?

She's weak. She should have closed it out by now. Not expecting much from her.

Re: Cetkovska has such awesome...

If you happen to be tired of brainless players who have an open court and a last shot to make it a winner and they always hit it straight to the opponent, you should start watching Petra C.

Finally a player I feel like I could be watching for hours. The final should be really good.

Re: Cetkovska has such awesome...

I see some Mandula, Testud and Maleeva in her. I like her tennis, too. However, she IS a mental headcase and her results depend on confidence a lot.

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Re: Cetkovska has such awesome...

I don't want to rain on this parade.

But she 25 now, where has this been over the years.
This is only her first WTA final.


This kind of thread was created after Jie remarkable performance against Serena just few ago.

The thread, with in the title in upper case the acronym ROS (Return Of Serve) made her out to be one of the best returner in the game.
All the while forgetting she has been on WTA the tour for awhile, we have very rarely seen that kind of performance from her.

Yes, Petra played very and previous round well today, but there are reasons why at 25, this is the first time she has been noticed and reached a final.


BTW, since Jie performance against Serena, how well has she done in the tournaments she entered? Just a cautionary note.

Re: Cetkovska has such awesome...

LOL. To me she screamed journey-woman. Good mover who can hit a good FH now and again, but had next to no BH, a serve which can go off with alarming regularity and utterly unable to finish off a match against a player who was hopeless for the entire match.

First, she's 26. Second, she's been injured. Third, Schiavone and Li have shown that you can achieve great thing in your late 20s, early 30s
