Yeah. But at least she won that first set 6-1, and was up in the 3rd set 3-0. I'd rather see some good tennis, then a brain fart, then no good tennis, or runs at all, to enjoy.

What good can we draw from this besides, "Well, we hope she's getting better?" Lol.

You knew she was ready to beat Li Na that day, but she freaked.

No one is sure of that right now, with her and Petko.

Mmhhhh. There's a delay here, it appears?

Re: Petra Kvitová Live Scores Thread - Cincinnati

Do you think she is injured?

Why else do they take long breaks?

Yeah. That's true. Let's not forget, that she hasn't played the US Open, and may be able to play her into form with lower seeds. We'll see. But this 2nd set, seems easier than the first set, so far. WTF?

Hold!

She has a wrapping on her thigh, but I'm not sure if it's hurting or a precaution?

Re: Petra Kvitová Live Scores Thread - Cincinnati

Nothing is easy what so ever in the match on her serve or return when it comes to closing games out. Truly incredulous!

Well, I'll make that determination after the US Open.

It wouldn't surprise me if she went on a run there. WE'll see (about there, and here)?

She has had some spectacular wins on the American Hardcourts - like Venus, Dinara etc - Definitely needs more match play on the American Hardcourts though

Re: Petra Kvitová Live Scores Thread - Cincinnati

She's taking so long to hold her serve against a average returner, with above average ground strokes. Truly embarrassing and sad. You can only fight off your serve, but so much, before losing it.
