2016: Petra finds bronze in Rio, looks for glory at USO - Rio, New Haven, US Open

Petra is in love, engaged. This is an Olympic year. Would it be surprising if this year is Petra's swan song (especially if by good chance and fortune she wins Wimbledon and/or Olympic Gold)? Update: Engagement with Radek off

As she is helping Li Na promote the tournament, she might well play a match.

Petra was originally scheduled to play on Monday, but that match was shifted to Tuesday. The organizers still want her to play, if she eventually handles her coming illness somehow. Last 2 days, she had temperature and enteric troubles. Hopefully, she gets that together somehow, but I also think, Sydney and Melbourne are way more important.

She does not know herself yet, what to expect tomorrow. My guess is either loss, or retiring during the match. And the Chinese public will not be that much disappointed, I guess.
