LOL, looks like Domi is a self-obssessed type, having a pic of herself on the wall of her living room

BTW, look at the great job that Petra's fitness coach Kristian Bajza has done on Lucie

Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

The pessimist in me says that Lucie just has a different body type anyway.

The optimist in me says that if Petra gets in that sort of shape,with that BMI, she will completely dominate the tour, and wipe the floor with even Serena. Can you imagine?

She scares me from this shot a little.
Moreover, you cannot say this is work of her physio: firstly, because you don't know how he trains her and what is her training plan; secondly, because some say that he doesn't use pump-ironing. This could be simply (and matter of fact it has to be) work of Lucie.

Interesting points.
As you truly pointed, it depends on how similar are bodies of Petra and Lucie at this aspect. We already know that Petra had struggled with the transformation (from her older training system to the later one) and although it is quite soon to judge it (most of us do anyway, so... what a hell ). We haven't seen anything better in terms of Petra's movement or body shape than in the past, on top of that, many of us think that she looks in worse shape than she used to (although it is possible that it is caused by the transformation it self ), including my self
Better physical condition could be very good for Petra in overall scale. She could focus on other aspects such as the mental side, tactics, technique etc. But it is not all-solving. Lucie is great example how better physical condition can help a lot, but it also demonstrates that her major issue is her mental side (she makes easy mistakes when she should just hang in, she handles tough/important moments worse and tends to take a walk when things get really bad ).
Fortunately, we know that Petra is much better at this aspect but recent months showed us that everything can be improved (and it is possible because she did better mentally in the past ).

Bad example, Lucie always had more of an slim and athletic body type and getting toned to this level took her few years. Look how she looked in 2010 major noticeable difference is her legs, rest is just minor improvements that can fluctuate during season

Shifty's right, Lucie is not great example for this.

Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

Who is that chunky player on the next court? Kerber? Making Petra look skinny.

Looks like Kerber, but that's not good example of ordinary WTA player, Kerber has strong legs as a horse.
