Re: Sydney R1: Dominika Cibulkova d. Petra Kvitova 6-1, 6-1

I am going to cry, this is her worst match in a while. Being outhit by someone half her size is truly pathetic. Petra should reevaluate her goals and fitness. That match was just pathetic on Petra's side.

Congrats Domi she played well

Worst match I've ever seen her play. Hopefully it was a bad off-day, otherwise it seems she's heading into a serious slump.

Gotta love Domi's tenacity, Petra's energy by contrast was just non-existant

Domi played really well but Petra just could not find the court. It was sad.

Embarrassing from Petra. She really needs to shape up and get the basics right. Such a shame to see her play like this because when she is in form it is great to watch. Well done to Pome.

Tbh I just felt sorry for Petra while playing that bad. Hope she can recover mentally before the AO.

Resident fan of the ever slumping Karolina Wozniacki.

Re: Sydney R1: Dominika Cibulkova d. Petra Kvitova 6-1, 6-1

Can't say I'm shocked. And don't care for the excuse or reason. I just hopes she can get it together at the Australian for her sake.

This one was just brutal. Domi wasn't even playing that well. Domi's serving was supbar through out, and she just tried to get the ball in the court, and that was enough. Kudos to POME, if that's all it took. She's not normally a Wozniaki or Radwanka type, so I understand and give her a pass. Petra was that bad. Go Domi!

So now in two consecutive matches, Petra has lost to a player she had a 4-2 career record against (Pav's), and a 4-0 one (Cibulkova), and she played much worse in the 2nd one, though she played bad/inconsistent in the Pav's one as well. SMH

Get it together Lady! Are you bored with regular tournaments now?

The upcoming Australian will tell us a lot (at least for this part of the season), where Petra's head and game are at.

Historically, she's done well at the majors, even when she's flopped in other parts of the season, so you can't write her off to excel there.

Petra deserves the criticism she's going to get, regardless of her excuse or reason after. Domi gave her so many 2nd serve opportunities she flubbed (including a easy BP opportunity to start the match--where U knew something was wrong/going to be a bad day) it wasn't even funny. But you can at least try, cant you?

And to think Petra was a few games away from #1 last year

Horrid from Kvitova. She is capable of spraying boatloads more unforced errors, but the energy was utterly absent. In contrast, Cibulkova was as always the Energizer bunny on speed.

What is wrong with her? Hard to imagine she was within touching distance of no. 1 same time last year.

First set was appalling from petra. Absolutely no redeeming features whatsover. She didn't even seem to care

Looked like she might start to find some form at the start of the 2nd, but very soon collapsed and was even worse than the first.

Shittiest match I think I've ever seen from her
