Is there any bad match ups for Kvitova ?!

It's obivous that there are very few players has what it takes to beat in-form Petra. I wonder if Petra really has a bad match up on the tour?! JJ was very close from beating her indoors and Petra was in good form. Petkovic did beat her twice in a raw this year but Petra was in very bad form back then. Aga played a close match against a good Petra but probably that was the best she can do out there (the same can be said about Vika).

The question is, what kind of player could trouble Petra a lot in the future even if she in great/good form?

Petra even when playing very well, she has some periods in some matches when she goes a little bit off. Not many seems to take full advantage of it yet.

I think Azarenka's a bad opponent for her because she can return her serves so well. If Azarenka's serve was a little stronger, she'd definitely be beating Kvitova.

Li also might be tricky for her, because she actually loves playing the power hitters cause she's great at using their power and redirecting the ball.

I'm very interested to see how she copes with the old-guard..Serena/Kim.

it's obvious that she doesn't much to fear from generation suck.

If those are going to be the closest rivals to Petra, she is going to be another Steffi Graf in the late 80s (i.e. having women many, many years older than you as your closest rivals).

Dementieva probably would be a bad match up for Petra. Great ROS, movement, consistency and she doesn't lack power like Vika and Aga. Petra & Lena D. only played once and Lena won 7-6 6-2 in Paris.

Indeed...although Elena D's abusing of the cc backhand in rallies, would leave her open to that deadly forehand dtl. Would be an interesting match-up.

Difference though is that this time it's just LACK of talent that's the cause.

Petkovic could trouble Petra in the next few years. Andrea did beat her on all surfaces.

any consistent power grinder will trouble her in the future. The likes of Petkovic, Dementieva and etc are the nightmare matchups for Kvitty

Re: Is there any bad match ups for Kvitova ?!

I think it's too early to say. In any prominent player's career there is bound to be a kind of developmental arch in which other players adjust to what she is doing, she adjusts to that, others adjust again, and so on until an equilibruium is reached. She's young and really just at the start of that process, so it's too early to tell how dominant she can be. In addition she obviously has a lot to work on in terms of her focus on court, and that muddies the view a lot in terms of what troubles her and what doesn't. For example I really can't see Petko being her biggest problem in the longer term, I think she just fluffed those matches this year.

The H2H between them is 4-3 for Andrea. Wouldn't really say about that ownage.
Andrea clearly isn't as good as Lena D. yet but she is still a good consistent power grinder with a decent/good serve. Both have the same approach in the game. That kind of player could trouble Petra in the future IMO.
