Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova
I just watched the highlights of Rosol-Nadal. It was the sweetest thing I've seen at Wimbledon since Goran won the title. I loved the point where Nadal tried to run down a dropshot, playing his usual "I can get to any ball" tennis, and discovered to his dismay that grass is not clay -- you can slide, but you can't stop. His underwear-wedgied butt ended up in the net, and he lost his racquet in the process.
That final game was awe-inspiring.
Now if Petra wins, it'll be a perfect Wimbledon.
"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005
