Re: Watch out for Petra Kvitova
I just watched the old Wimbledon 2010 QF, Kvitova v. Kanepi. (Kaia just made finals of Moscow, and that reminded me of this match.)
I am amazed that Kvitova won that match. She was down a break for most of the third set. Then Kanepi earned a match point on Petra's serve at 5-6, 30-40. Petra missed her first serve. Then the second serve clipped the tape and fell in the box for a let. Then on the third serve, Kanepi hit a pretty good-looking return that was long by maybe an inch.
In none of this did Petra exhibit any nerves. As you know, she went on to win the set and match, 8-6 in the third, serving it out to love.
