I don't think Petra cared to play.

This is the worst I have ever seen her play! 36 unforced errors in 14games.. Start to really worry for the AO..

THat is a deceptive stat. Of those, 5 are double faults. She also maintained a great length on her shots and was rushing Kvitova a lot.

So sad to see her wasting talent like this because she can't be bothered to hit the gym. Some people take things for granted. Talent is not enough if you want to succeed in this sport.

I should have reworded that. She played really SMART. She didn't go for her shots as much, she noticed Petra was erratic so she made her hit a lot of balls back.

Agreed I can't believe she still has that jelly belly after the off season training

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

It would be extremely premature and foolish to start writing obituaries about Petra Kvitova's tennis career. She still potentially has a tremendous tennis career ahead of her. Many careers go through plenty of ups and downs and you can't always play your best. But it is clear Petra is currently very out of shape and in the short term, well, she is in a lot of trouble. She will go into the Australian Open as easily the most vulnerable of all the players currently in the top 10.

Still, this match might be the wake up call she needs, and given a couple of months there is no reason she can't get thing back on track. But that isn't a given either, and without a lot of work it is very hard to see her keeping her place in the top 10 for much longer.

That was sad to watch. She really seems to have lost her passion for the game. She looked so unmotivated and nothing seems to have been worked on or improved during the off season. This time last year she was a match or 2 off being number 1. So much changes in a year. I really hope she gets her game together as she has too much talent to waste.
