Re: Petko's 2017 - Asia & Indoors

She got beat 6-2, 7-5.

Oh well, thought she had a chance in what looked a mediocre field if she could get the Washington form back.

Now ranked outside the top 100 and probably at risk of having to qualify for the AO.

Watched about 5 games, everything was catastrophe.

Not a good result, I hope she can regroup.

Good result today, a win over Dabrowski after an overnight rain delay.

Re: Petko's 2017 - Asia & Indoors

Second match of the day and an easy win over Sasnovich 61 61.
Can she keep up this good form?

Re: Petko's 2017 - Asia & Indoors

i want to believe she found some kind of form but truth is she got lucky Rogers retired and so she played a doubles player in round 1 and then Sasnovich that had played a 2 hour match earlier in the day.Under any circumstances that's a good result .Seeing the draw she could face some out of form players(Bertens,Puntintseva) but still it will be hard to win round one.

Re: Petko's 2017 - Asia & Indoors

Davis got routined by Makarova next round...

She got turned down for a WC to Luxembourg, so Beijing might be her last tournament of the season.

Can somebody translate what the tournament said? My google translate job didn't make much sense Ein frischer Wind weht durch Kockelscheuer

Re: Petko's 2017 - Asia & Indoors

Oh boy..well it makes sense.Why would they give her a WC?She's not a local player,she's not an ex champion there.That's the harsh reality now.

Bejing qualies,it'll take a miracle to win 2 matches there given her form..could be the last match of her proffesional career.

Re: Petko's 2017 - Asia & Indoors

She beat Haddad Maia 6-3, 6-3 in R1 qualies

V good result as the Brazillian is in good form and much higher ranked. Maybe the threat of Luxembourg points coming off and AO qualies looming has focused her more, and she does have a decent record here.

Could play Sakkari next, might be an advantage as the Greek's still playing Wuhan.

Re: Petko's 2017 - Asia & Indoors

that was her best result in a loooong time(she even wasnt broken on second set!a miracle) and now she faces Sorribes Tormo.In theory it's a good opportunity and an easier opponent than Maia,but i thought playing Davies was a good draw for her also and we saw what happened.

Re: Petko's 2017 - Asia & Indoors

She beat Sorribes Tormo 6-0, 6-4. Wow, in some good form going into the main draw, hopefully can grab a crucial win or two.

She also had nice scorelines in Wuhan but played a terrible match vs Davis. Really hope she can use the momentum this time
