Well played. Bartoli played like crap but still.

Re: Petra Kvitová Live Scores Thread

Wow!

Beautiful serve, and follow up FH by Petra. Bartoli, may not have been her best, but Petra was hitting the ball very crisply, played the tight points better, and held up her serve and ROS game. Much better than how she played against Pervak.

Keep it up Petra. And she now makes the Qfinals for the first time in this tournament.

Suprisingly I expected the exact opposite result.

Yeah, I agree, and was thinking the same thing (though not to that exact level of mastery, execution and confidence; particularly on the volleys and touch shots).

But it was a start. Petra guided, angled, sliced, and looped the ball to the corners on defensive or rally shots, then came in or went for the kill or volley when the presented themselves, and with proper anticipation.

PS: Sam Smith and her partner, obviously didn't do Hopman cup as far as your concerned, I see.

It bugs me that I am now in a rural area with crappy internet connection.

Still, I saw numerous flashes of brilliance. The score is impressive too

Yeah, Bartoli wasn't her best, but the way Petra played against Pervak, she would of easily lost to Bartoli today. So I'll take it.

Petra definitely showed some shades of 2011 in her match today, so I hope she keep it up.

Like I was saying yesterday, I figured today's match could be a wipe out, either way today (especially with Bartoli being so up and down, despite Petra's struggles with Pervak), and I'm glad it was Petra to administer the beatdown.

Hopefully this will give her some confidence, toward her next match.
