so what really happened with Stepanek? I never read anything about the reasons for the break up! Im assuming it wasnt good, no congratulations twits from Stepanek.
Who Cares/Good Riddance!!
Plus, I'm sure you can find out, read out about that stuff if you really wanted to.
Speaking about lost causes, the past:
Man, if we could count up the amount of close calls/missed opportunities and woulda coulda shoulda's (French 2011 vs eventual Champion Li Na, French 2012 vs Champion Sharapova, Aussie 2012 vs Sharapova--with almost Pigeon Vika in waiting, 2013 Wimby vs Flipkens) in majors with our Petra, gasp!
Now, when you include the All Out Suckage of the past year in a half (Radek, no Radek), it can make you sick/your head spin.
Hell, we could even throw in, if Petra would have toughed it out, and found a way to beat Serena in 2010 or 2012 (they were close enough), she was practically guaranteed of winning Wimbledon.
Of course, lots of players can play the "Woulda Coulda Shoulda game. I know. However, Petra was playing well enough, had the skill, high levels to make those wins happen, especially if she would have gotten past her last opponents. Okay, maybe she would have still bombed out against Bartoli, even if she had beaten Flipkens (who she should have), cause she fell ill. Who knows? Petra just needs that belief and confidence again, to go along with her game and ability. Let's just hope, Petra can start a new series of memories, that can make us forget the recent past
And where's her full time male hitting partner?
PS: Just idle thoughts we've all had/said to ourselves during the summer respite before the Hard Court Tournaments/Real Action starts. So spare me any "No It Would Not Have Happened" "Realistic", Real World analysis/Comeuppance.
