I guess somebody Luc Rosol-ed her team.

Remember him?

He's the guy that steam rolled Rafa at Wimbledon. And remember he's Czech.

well, yes and no, her team still can make it to the finals, if Liberec beats Prevov with a certain score but now i'm not sure, especially if Rosol and Istomin wins their share of matches

I didn't know that you could speak 'Paul';do they teach 'Paul' in some of the language schools in NYC?

Yes,now that you mention it,I remember the match,but the guy's name escaped my memory...and he certainly wasn't famous enough to have his name used as a verb like Paul just did.Do you think that we could use 'Petra' as a verb,too?: The young tennis prodigy "Petraed" by choosing her alcoholic father and his drinking buddies to manage her career

PARTY IN THE PANIC ROOM! Serena wins an undoubtedly clean #22

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

I just hope there will be some decent TV camera angle. Most of the Prostejov facilities have quite low ceilings so the camera angle is not ideal IMO. Hope the Czech TV will step it up for the final.


BTW, what really made me laugh today was reading that Radek went to Prostejov by train (and was recognized by many people). I thought that such a rich guy had a Ferrari or at least a Porsche so why bother with 'ordinary' people

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

I hope final would be on CT4 cause watching games on Bet365 is not really 'enjoyable', especially moments when you hear the sound of hitting but picture freezes or delayed and you get confused what actually going on after few minutes

I thought you'd said that Petra's mafia stooge manager had really improved the quality of facilities in the CR.From what you've described above,it sounds like they're playing inside of a crackerjack box(pinche gringo modismo)

Definitely, but these facilities are mainly designed for practice and training and not for TV matches so the camera cannot be positioned as well as in a large indoor arena. The Extraliga matches are played mostly on practice courts.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Both Kvitova and Berdych lost, but still a good preparation.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

damn, she actually played and i missed it as i feared, tho i would be all over the final


btw, as i've said in GM, i'm glad Petra lost, tho she could have been a little more 'competitive' or better prepared, i guess new fitness guy had short span to actually prepare her or he just useless

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

I was thinking about Petra's fitness issues and how her fitness training sessions should look like and than I found a video of this Slovak chick...

Well, it is still 2012. Perhaps on January 1st there will be some kind of miraculous turnaround.
