That's amazing, congratulations Petra

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Petra

Both her wins in WTA MD came against players ranked outside the top 400

I have spread my dreams under your feet

Probably will result in a new career high ranking too, the current one being #162, also from 2000.
I wonder if both gaps could be tour records for active players, and by that I mean excluding players making a comeback after some years out.

Karen just doesn't have what it takes to get wins even in a $50K tournament, let alone a WTA. She is a pretty good doubles player, though.

That was so long ago that after she won that match in 2000, she lost to Zvereva in the following round!

Petra Very fortunate draw, but I'm sure she will gladly take it Nice that this trip has paid off for her

"Religion has actually convinced people that there is an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. Any if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But he loves you."

George Carlin
