Re: 2012 RACE TO ISTANBUL YEC (After Tokyo) - 4 players qualified, 4 spots left for g
Petra loses to scrubs more often than the rest of top players but she usually steps it up against the top players. I would favor her in a match against Aga and Vika, especially indoors, her playground.
She has a very bad record against top 20 players this year. Of course in general she plays better against Radwanska and Azarenka, cause getting to them means that she is in some sort of good form. She doesn´t get to Vika or Aga, if she is playing like s***. Then she is losing to CSN and Martic.
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: Cibulkova (President), Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson.
