PS: mission stage № 1 accomplished. Her USO run can no longer become the predicted catastrophic doom and failure (as anything beyond now will be her best ever result

Well Parmentier played a nice match but Petra wasn't really trying to do anything too special on court except winning.

The serve was good, the rest was nothing special.

Petra discovered in the first four games that Parmentier cannot return her serve. So from there on out, she just broke once per set, and then just messed around on return games, sure that she would hold.

Sure enough, did not face a BP. Nearly 70% winning percentage on 2nd serve.

Pova would toast her if she played like that, though.

"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005

Shocking stats from Kvitty . Playing within herself finally a la Federer or Sampras because they could? Of course, this is only Parmentier.

We are used to Kvitova having cakewalks to the quarter- and semifinal of the Slams and using them. No reason to bother with her until she meets a real threat. Even Bartoli is a pushover these days.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Got more points from NA swing than she could dream off, not gonna beat Sharapova playing like this though.
