Was that a joke, on that "Shadow Business guy (maybe directed at me)". Or you meant that?

I gotcha. And I know he kinda has a big mouth and feels entitled. But why say some of those things right after such a special victory, unless I'm getting the wrong impression, this is out of context?

He couldn't help much, cause he's "not doing much tennis" and "doesn't speak English well"? WTH, isn't that his job (I know, he has other interest, and feels the relationship is the other way around)!?

Well ok now.

Well, I didn't want to offend you, if you're working in business as well, sorry.

And I wasn't really concentrating on the correct order of things he said, so those two excuses where used when he was talking about the coping with the media and fame and why he couldn't help much, not why he couldn't help with the tennis stuff (and I don't think this is his work).

Ehm, since when are Czech politicians and "businessmen" going to jail for their crimes? Well, maybe this is what he meant by "other activities".

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

No I'm fine with Shadow Business.

Remember, I didn't read the article. I was just asking was that a joke directed at me, since I and others used to kill Cernosek; some even calling him a petty crook, etc.? Plus, I saw those "rolled eyes" again.

I was being serious, just wanted to make sure. You can call him anything you want. It's Sunday, almost 7pm, and no I'm not working.

So why did he say this stuff about Petra now? And you can mention the other stuff as well, unless you just don't want to spread negativity on Petra's subforum, so soon after her victory. I would understand.

I think he is the problem. That guy is a joke as a manager. Fire him Petra.

OK, I think I see it better now. Cause I noticed you called him an "idiot" in your original response.

This guy is creepy, shady, if he would say stuff like this, while Petra was at the Wimbledon dance receiving her glory. SMH/WTH

And the the other stuff, I would not be surprised at all, like this.

Whadda classless Jerk!

First he complains what he can't get for her. However, he next complains what he WON'T DO for her, cause he doesn't have the time, along with not speaking English.

WTF!?

Either do your job. Hire some one else to do it. Or fire him Petra.
But unfortunately, Imma stop now. Cause I know we still have people checking in, to catch up on Petra and/or wish her well, after her Wimbledon triumph.

Whadda Jerk!!

Wow, I just re-read [more carefully] what Jack wrote, and I can't believe he would say this so soon.

Plus, what did he want Petra to do, lose in 2011?

Isn't' this why you surround yourself with, or hire the best peoples, to help her cope, keep her hungry?

Plus, who's he fooling. All those hires come from The Czech Republic and Slovakia, and all seem to be affiliated with him. So you can hire or fire them, as long as they come from my approved network.

And shouldn't he be out there working, trying to cut her some more deals (and if not, just be happy that she just won her 2nd Wimby after a three year drought)? WTH. Slippery guy to say the least.

Oh, and thanks Jack.

^ At least now that Petra resides in Monaco there is less possibility of collateral damage from those kinds of "village shenanigans"
