Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Not sure if this is a good move. She could use some down time and not focus on tennis. However, you could also say the best remedy for the rut she's in is to get out there and play, especially in a tournament she won. Good luck, Petra.

Remember, Petra's team doesn't really have a plan or appear to know what it's doing.

It's really contingent on Petra to find her game again. So from that perspective, it makes sense, hoping to catch Lightening In A Bottle at Paris Indoors again.

Until it changes: That's the Petra team way (wait for Petra).

Well, if that's the case, maybe Petra should make changes to her team because that is not a long-term answer.

We would only hope Lupo.

Cause the way Petra's going now, she'll always be inconsistent, until the few stretches she'll find her game and confidence, then play well.

Nonetheless, it will be boom and bust until Petra opens her eyes and/or finds better team members. Cause currently, she's drastically worse than she's been to start the season--the past three years. Not even close!

Petra's going backwards and that's troubling. And it's not like she can't play better. She can. It's just that her level of dedication, confidence and execution, will not allow her to place consistently high results, even compared to the first 3/4 of her 2012.

As you indicated: It's up to her (but easier said than done, unfortunately in her case)!!!!!

You just reminded me of a day when some of us guys were ready to shower in the gym after a strenuous P.E. class.At the moment,there wasn't any hot water so one guy--who was apparently oblivious to the whole concept of boilers heating up water--turned the cold water tap open all the way...thinking that he could make the cold water 'run out',at which point the shower water would magically become hot......I'd like to think that Petra's team was slightly more in touch with reality than THAT fellow was(I've seen a couple other dudes who were similarly befuddled,btw)

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

Not as good as some of YOUR best work,but it gets the point across,maybe

EDIT: Just saw the new thread and it's a decent name,but I'm not sure what 'mud digging' is supposed to mean.It's probably some Norwegian metaphor for getting stoned(lol)

Nice field but no one there can beat KvittyGoat, on the other hand, Petra can struggle with fellow Czechs, my idoor GOAT Sofia can be tricky. Pavs, Marion or Mona can outplay her as well. Once again from one standpoint it should be cakewalk but alot of tricky matchups where she can flop to anyone
