Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

If her ex-bf ended the relationship(who knows?I guess it's not that important),then he jumped ship a little too early.....He'll never do as well as he was doing when he was with Petra--that's for sure!

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

The WTA website still has an interview with Petra from 2008. It includes this hilarious (in hindsight) response:

"Q: Among the current players on Tour, who would you most like the opportunity to play?
PK:*I would like to play*Maria Sharapova. We're both tall and especially for her height she is very quick around the court and she has a good serve. I admire what she has achieved in her career."

Nice to see that she respects Masha. She sure had a fun time with her "good serve" in the Wimbledon final.

That interview too place back when Masha's serve was better---pre-shoulder injury.Even so,Petra beat one of the all-time best servers,VW,early that spring

Talking Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Hi guys,

Here's the latest Petra stuff fresh off the newsstand! SPORT magazine Special Extra. I'll post the interviews when I get home from work today. Besides the interviews they've got articles about Martina Nav, Petra's thoughts regarding her heroes and other opponents and more. There's also a list of Petra's favorite tournaments.

Here's a few preview shots. As you can see the Nike campaign is in full swing already (no pun intended).

Enjoy!

Not sure if that was ever true

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

Basically,I'm saying that your premise is pretty lame here...while I agree that Petra should be considered a chief threat for any young WTA player with potential,it's not as if stealing her fitness coach would derail her career.At worst,it might throw her somewhat out of rhythm for a couple months until she found a new one...which wouldn't be extremely hard.

Further,there are LOTs of players who can beat Caro at majors...especially if she's not in top form...so singling out Petra wouldn't do a damned bit of good while there are still serious threats such as the WS,Clijsters,Zvonareva,etc.,and even Cibulkova and Dani made her look bad this year.What's next?Is Piotr gonna hire some thug to kidnap Jada for a couple days to frighten Kim into retirement?

I think you can see that some of this conspiracy stuff can get pretty asinine if we don't distinguish between fact and wild speculation.
Bruce, I would give Ivanko more credit to Petra development than you seems to suggest. His role is not a purely fitness coach. In the past, he may be with PK at some tournaments while Kotyza was not, and vice versa. Overall, he did pretty good job considering how long he's been working with Petra. PK's main improvements are in my opinion her movement and fitness level. No one is suggesting that his departure would derail PK's career but it certainly has potential to disrupt preparation and team for quite sometimes. And no one knows for how long. It does take a while to build a trust and new relationships in the team. Ivanko sounds a bit more cocky in the interview that I would like him to. However, he probably feels that he's got a lot to offer. I think they should look at giving him more money or percentage of winning.

Regarding Piotr....He is a pretty astute customer and I have no reservation to say that he will not leave a stone unturned in quest for Caro's success. I am not saying that he is doing it for that reason, but such offers may have added benefits to his daughter. Timing is what in my opinion is suspicious. Just after PK won the Wimby, her coach is getting all those offers to work for someone else.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Why does she rate IW as her third favorite tournament?
her results there hasn't been that good.

She says: "Its beautiful there! You see mountains in the desert, it (the tournament) has breathtaking ambience (atmosphere)."

Well, I have to say that I cant remember ANY outdoor hard tournaments where PK did that well. I do not count her results with roof closed as outdoor though!!

Petra clearly looked up to Martha in her formative years. I also used to think that she had modelled her oncourt demeanour after Martha's Ice Queen act, but now I feel that it just came naturally to her.
