Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova
No. Petra's power is not a result of throwing her weight into the shots, but of her good timing and excellent mechanics. Losing weight will only make her faster, get her in position sooner, cut down on shanks and mishits, and make her that much more effective.
"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
