I will be glad to help her."

This offer released in the media is quite old. Navratilova said that she would love to help Petra somehow, but then Petra said that Martina hasn't spoken to her.

I think that Martina should offer her advises to Petra in person, not through the media. Until then, it looks like Martina just wants to make alibi, that she has done everything she possibly could.

Nevertheless, I think Petra should find Martine on her own and ask her for advises because she is the one who is struggling and needs to find a way out of this slump, she should be trying to find every possible person that could help her. But probably she just don't want to yet.

One of her disadvantages/advantages is her stubbornness. Her strong head helped her keep believing even when she was making errors and winning matches in tight three setters, but her self belief was high enough to get her out of this and she could start to play for winner again because she got through. This is attribute of the true champions, but it can also be bad for them when they are making mistakes and don't want to realize it. This is also the reason why she is capable of losing matches where she just keeps making errors while trying to hit winners again instead of changing strategy. The only thing she can do about this is to learn how to tell apart the situation if she should keep her aggressive strategy, survive the short slump and start to hit winner again or if she should just change her game plan for a while and go for plan B or C to avoid losing the match.

Petra Kvitová * Tomáš Berdych * Lucie Šafářová * BZS * Angie Kerber
Karolína Plíšková * Andy Murray * Roger Federer * Tommy Haas
Radek Štěpánek * Leander Paes ** Andrea Hlaváčková & Lucie Hradecká
And other Czech Davis Cup and Fed Cup team members

Tried to translate it better than Big Brother

I DO NOT NEED HELP, KVITOVA REFUSED OFFER FROM NAVRATILOVA
Tennis player Petra Kvitova trying out a new way to return to the top of her career. But 23-yrs old player from Fulnek has decided to reject offer to help from Martina Navratilova. The 56-yrs old tennis legend told in an interview for Radio-journal.


I offered to help her, but she did not want anything," said Navratilova, who lives in the United States, where recently finished the last Grand Slam tournament of the season - U.S. Open. Kvitova was eliminated in the 3rd round with home Alison Riske.

Czech Fed Cup representative was repeatedly bothered with health problems, especially with fever. "She had a physical problems here, there is nothing you can do. She had a bad luck to get sick, " regretted Navratilova, who, together with Australian Rennae Stubbs, won the doubles veteran tournament.

When she asks for advice, I will help, says Navratilova
Although Kvitova has refused her help so far, Navratilova did not lose. "If she asks for advice, I’ll be glad to help her," said Navratilova, who, like Kvitova, has won Wimbledon in twenty-one years of age.

Kvitova won in 2011, besides Wimbledon, WTA Tour Championship, Fed Cup and four other tournaments. She had climbed to second place in rankings and attack on the first place was expected. Instead, she slowly began to sink, until she left the elite ten earlier this week.

Experts often criticize Kvitova’s lack of physical fitness and poor movement on the court. The best Czech player has decided therefore to ask fitness coach Marek Vseticek. She should also attempt a comprehensive medical examination in order to prevent health problems together with her team.

Tbh i dont think she needs Martina's help or advice tbh. All she needs to do is get back on track and get her game back to the aggressor that she was in 2011.

You know what's funny? Petra's manager Černošek married Petra Langrová, a former hitting partner of Martina Hingis, who is a former fiancée of Radek, who is now Petra's bf
