Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

Very cute pics, paul. I've put one of them in the GM section, if you don't mind.

BTW, this is the guy who deprived Ivan Lendl of career slam

@Petronius

Make sure you post the first one and not the second.

Not that anything is wrong with it (the second one). But you know the haters on GM.

Then again, maybe they would find something to criticize (or not compliment) about the first as well.

Sorry, too late, I posted the second one (because Lucie is also there)

Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

I still remember the sign some guy was waving in the stands in that Wimbledon final: "Cash is better than a Czech."

"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

P. Kvitova def. S. Williams 6-2, 6-3

Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

Her hair looks pretty! And everyone in this photo looks vaguely disinterested. Where is it from?

That's Cernosek next to her.

And is it just me guys? But I find it funny that Petra's holding any type of press conference this time of year for anything but a PAID exhibition event?

Seems a bit much to me (about nothing).

Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

Does Petra gets pay for playing this extraligue thing?

I highly doubt it.

I'm sure it's servitude, I meant fulfilling both Cernosenk's and Petra's wishes.

That's what made it so ironic when she played so hard last year vs Lucie H. (and got injured), when Lucie was in much better tennis playing condition than Petra was at the Time. She played so hard to and wasn't getting payed for it. Why (Petra competitiveness and Czech, Team Pride, and Cernosenk commitments of course)?

And for the Czech fans: I'm not dogging any of your events or ceremonies. I understand why you would like them, want them, and/or see Petra play in them. However, it doesn't mean it would be best for Petra or that Cernosenk is not leaning on Petra to serve his own interest and not Petra's alone.

It just doesn't appear she has a free mind to choose what's best for herself, with out pressure or inducement from him, participating in an event that helps serve his interest. That's my main (it's been repeated before of course) complaint of their arrangement.

You think Vika, Serena or Maria would put up with an arrangement like this (unless it was their elder, respected relative or close family friend)?
