Question THE PETKOS 2013 - Match of the Year



Given the boredom of the off-season I thought maybe we should try having a little award show for Andi.

In my infinite creativity I've decided to call it "The Petkos" and we're starting off with the most obvious category, "match of the year". Please vote for your favorite Petko match of the year and maybe tell why you loved that match, which other ones you liked and whatever else crosses your mind.

If there's any interest in it I'll continue it next week with a new category. Maybe even if there's no interest, you can't stop me.

Edit: Polls closed!

And the winner is:

WTA Nuremberg 2013 SF: Andrea Petkovic def. Jelena Jankovic 6-4 6-3

Re: THE PETKOS 2013 - Match of the Year

To get things rolling, my favorite match of her was the win over Azarenka - it was the biggest name she beat this year, and she did it in emphatic fashion in a long three-set-match where it would have been to just go away after she lost the 2nd set. Runner-up for me is the win over Jankovic, because it was conclusion of her epic 9-match winning streak in the summer that followed the Paris disaster and the one match where I really silently thought "damn right, she's back".

I loved the match vs Jankovic in Nuremberg. Petko played very well and qualified for the first final after the injury.

Petko's win over JJ is number one for me--she rocked and she knew it!

Re: THE PETKOS 2013 - Match of the Year

Chosen Petkovic def. Puig. Remember how shocked I was while "watching" it on scoreboard. After all these problems and kinda depressing loss to Zhou in Paris, I've never imagine her doublebagelling someone and achieving some finals


TT Singles: (CH: #40) W ITF Biella'10, W ITF Nantes'10, W ITF Dubai'12 | TT Doubles: (CH: #1) ITF Nantes'10, ITF Bucharest'10, Marbella'11, Washington'11, Linz'11, YEC'11, ITF Opole'11, Pattaya'12, Tashkent'12, ITF Pune'12, Memphis'13, Carlsbad'13, Marrakesh'14, Washington'14 | Suicide: (CH: #2) W Luxembourg'12, W Luxembourg'13 | Tipping: (CH: #2) W YEC'11, W Acapulco'13, W Brisbane'14, W RG'14 | FITD: (CH: #1) W Wimbledon'14, W USO'14, W Antwerp'14[/RIGHT]

Re: THE PETKOS 2013 - Match of the Year

I'd like to pick Marseille final. Although we didn't even got a Livestream to watch it and didn't know how the both players performed, it was a turning point in this year IMO, especially after the tough loss at French Open, this ITF triumph was so inspiring and important.
And of course I agree with you guys that the win over JJ was probably the most impressive.

Re: THE PETKOS 2013 - Match of the Year

i picked the double bagel over Puig, given her bad loss in RG quali and losing to her few weeks before it was a positive shocking result

I love this match !

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck
