Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

She might be kneeling on the baseline to hit a kick serve because you have to hit up on the ball

She always looks like she's genuinely having fun when she's on court. It's refreshing.

it's either top spin kick serve or resistance training to strengthen core muscles

upd
to better understand purpose of this, here some text book quote for you

To help players add more topspin to their serves and improve their follow-through, have them kneel down on the baseline. Because players are suddenly about two or three feet tall, they will have to add more lift to their serves. This also encourages servers to keep their heads up and follow through across their bodies instead of straight down, because they will cause some serious damage to their racquets if their follow-through is incorrect!
By doing this drill, the server will remember to do the appropriate follow even if he is not kneeling anymore by imagining that his racket will hit the ground if the "straight down" follow-through is followed.

Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

Really nice pictures. I like the processing in those from France, although I think that the black and white ones are lacking of contrast a little bit.

Very good Jack, very good!

If someone could only post a picture of Rafa's groin, I'd like to click on that to see if it would get bigger
