The Czech league incl. Safarova, Zakopalova, Kerber (played it last year and was defeated by Hradecka !!!), Hradecka (who def. Petra and Angelique !!! last year) can really be a great training for Petra. But again - she should watch out for her health (I come from Olomouc and winters are sometimes colder here). Therefore 2 sets matches (as quick as possible) are higly welcome..ha, ha. Pls. no that marathon with Hradecka again + doubles with Lucie against Benesova/Hradecka - too much effort. Than Brisbaine seems to be a good option to get some points. Hard to say, if Sydney should be chosen too. Next year I would recommend not to play Fed Cup (2 titles are enough and Lucie could show up against Stosur too).
Welcome Honzaneumannn. And thanks for your insight, perspective and information.
Yes, the question wasn't whether or not Petra should ever play Czech league to warm up, etc.. The problem is, Cernosek wants her to play the finals. And once you put Petra in that setting she wants to play hard and win for Cernosek/Prostojev or Czech pride. This is why she got hurt last year playing Hredecka. I personally thought that was ridiculous (as you may as well), and she should have never been placed in that position (to go all out like that).
Petra's a professional and she has to schedule her tournaments around key WTA events and Grand Slams and not put so much effort in Pre Pre-season (not even warm up) tournaments.
I to wished that Petra will have some say on who her Physio person is and that she and Kotyza can make the original choice and not Cernosek as well. I hope they can reject his choices if she/Kotyza doesn't like them or has their own?
And I agree with you as well, that it would be best for Petra not to play Fed Cup--again next year. I concur. Two consecutive titles are enough. Petra's needs to concentrate on her own WTA career at the moment. She has too much talent and potential not do so.
