The Falling Cometh: Petra Kvitova

I guess it's the right time to open this thread. Her form has been abysmal since USO.
What has been her problem? The spark she had 2 years ago were no where to be seen.

I still think she has potential to come back but will she be another Sveta/Mary?

Re: The Falling Cometh: Petra Kvitova

She's never been the same after the loss against Sharapova @Aus Open 12.

No idea why.

Re: The Falling Cometh: Petra Kvitova

It all began when she was thisclose to getting world number 1.
She just couldn't handle the thought of that and suffered tremendously since then.

Re: The Falling Cometh: Petra Kvitova

After winning the Wimbledon title, I wasn't convinced that she's the next big thing and I'm right after all


Inspiration is for amateurs

Re: The Falling Cometh: Petra Kvitova


Well she just changed her fitness coach. Perhaps we'll see some improvement in near future? Hopefully.

At least she still knows what she can do.

Fitness is an issue but i feel it's mostly mental. Lacking confidence it's really hard to go for those high risk shots.

Re: The Falling Cometh: Petra Kvitova

Her problem roots in mentality, she needs to learn how to fight if still wants to achieve anything in the future

It doesn't, she will still actually be 8. It will take a semis from Bartoli and a final from Wozniacki for her to drop to 10. She will only drop outside of top 10 if all of this happens Bartoli semis, Wozanicki final, and Ivanovic winning the AO. She was 1300 points ahead of Wozniacki (#10) and will surely finish ahead of Stosur. Her lowest will be 11 by the release of the next ranking.
As of 3rd round
Code:
                        Prev    Defend  Won     New     Semis    Final    Win
KVITOVA, PETRA 	        5085	900	100	4285
STOSUR, SAMANTHA 	4135	5	100	4230
BARTOLI, MARION 	3740	160	160	3740    4480     4980    5580
WOZNIACKI, CAROLINE 	3765	500	160	3425    4165     4665    5165
PETROVA, NADIA 	        3040    100	5	2945
IVANOVIC, ANA 	        2841	280	160	2721    3461     3961    4561

Re: The Falling Cometh: Petra Kvitova

and this is the same player, which "smartass heads" of this board proclaimed much more talented than Sharapova not too long ago... Good to see Barktra proving these bandwagoners wrong

Being talented and fulfill that talent are two different things.

There are plenty of examples.

Re: The Falling Cometh: Petra Kvitova

Yeah, Petra's place in the top 10, and probably even the top 8 is still relatively secure for the post AO rankings. But unless Petra lifts her game very substantially over the next 3 or 4 months her time in the top 10 isn't going to last that much longer.
