Re: Videos of Petra Kvitova
I'll never forget that winner she hit Against Alexa Glatch in her first game (Hope it's there, didn't watch the video yet).
Petra had ran to the extreme top left corner, and lofted a stretched, spin around defensive back hand high in the air toward the middle of the court. Now Petra faked to the middle on the top baseline (Wozniaki style), than ran back to the corner (as Glatch hit there), and Petra hit a screaming, crouching DTL backhand winner from 15 feet behind the baseline. Pow! Glacth didn't even move! It was incredible! It also showed Petra's improved, underrated defense.
I know she hit a lot of great shots in Wimby, but that one was the most memorable/shocking/fascinating winners to me.
Oh. It's 17-18 seconds on the video (when she/her racquet makes that sound "Ah-hi"). But you don't get to see the build up, or her scrambling, mind you the defensive backhand half volley/pick up lob that preceded it.
She also had a crazy, dominating rally (the announcer even said "dominating the rally") with Wickamayer, that's on another video that was incredible to watch.
She had so many!
