Unhappy Petra's Window For SEWTA #1 Closing ???

she was 2 matches away from SEWTA #1 when NaNa snapped her 18 match winning streak in Sydney SF

at the AO she was again 2 matches away from SEWTA #1 but she lost her concentration and fell to Maria in the SF

she skipped the Middle East swing and now losing early in Indian Wells to McHale and Miami to Venus, #1 seems very far away with Vika padding her point total and Petra's title defense at Madrid coming

Dumb thread. She has all the time in the world. Just turned 22, still needs to mature over the next year or so on all surfaces.

Re: Petra's Window For SEWTA #1 Closing ???

I actually don't care what her ranking is atm, as long as she does not carry her shit form into clay+grass season...and she might be able to rebound in US HC season in August perhaps?

She still has a long way to go to revamp her HC game, she really needs to do it if she wants to achieve something more than she has atm

I don't think she can get it this year unless she tears up the US Open series but her results in North America for the past few weeks shows that it will be a tough task.

I do think she talented enough to eventually get it though.

She has a long career ahead of her. She could get in the next 5 years, even after. No big deal.

I'd guess the meaning was current window.

Re: Petra's Window For SEWTA #1 Closing ???

Does she have the game to be #1? Of course. But Kvitova is still plagued by her own going AWOL. She does this within matches, sometimes within in a set. And she still does for stretches of the tour. Physically she's there but she's not really present. She has to get it sorted to realize her full potential.

Still it's amazing how almost any thread on TF gets taken way out of context.

Re: Petra's Window For SEWTA #1 Closing ???

She has lot of time ahead of her.

But she has to fix her issues with US tournaments.
Djokovic did it, although I realize it is this is different, sport medicine has made so much progress lately, I am sure she can find something to minimize the factors asthma plays in her performances on US soil.

For this to succeed, it also requires full commitment and participation from her. I don't think she has come to that place yet.

Can she take it by Roland garros if she beasts on clay like she can? Clay gives her more time to get to the ball and set up and she can hit through people on clay even

I don't think she's kinda player who hangs around top ten for so long. So my answer is yes.
