That's a shame. I'm sure if Petra came to Stanford, she would have been happy with the cool, dry weather and wicked fast courts.

The reason she dropped Stanford and not New Haven is because she has finals points to defend there.

Aren't they both premiere events? If so, she can defend her NH finals points at Stanford.

Petra does like that silly tournament in New Haven and it's tournament director way too much.

I really hope Petra drops Cincy if she does well in Montreal.

And I hope she and her team have got back some sense, and will act like Slam winners again.

You got it!

When I was reading it ("Prostojev Academy"), I was saying to myself "Oh Lawd", "What a surrrrprise"!!

You can't even get mad anymore with his and their nonsense.

Every year, there's a presumably world wide search, that ends up with another lackey in the Cersonek sphere. SMH

Nonetheless, we'll see what happens, and hope for the best (regarding Petra's year, and who ever the next permanent Physio's going to be)?

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

PS:

Why does Petra put up with this?

You gotta place some of the blame on her as well.

Who the hell wants a Physio guy from the Prostojev academy (temporary or not) when you're a 2X Grand Slam Champion, #4 player in the world, who's yet to hit her prime.

Does Petra have any backbone, perspective?

I think it's little things like this, that may have cost Petra an extra, 1, 2 or 3 majors so far (not having the right people around her, who can maximize her talent, skill, tactical/strategic approach, belief and confidence). And where's her full time Male hitting partner???

Somethings seriously wrong over there (Petra's team) compared to other top flight players.

Nonetheless, good luck on the upcoming North American Hardcourts Petra!!

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

^ Ouch. You get that your criticizing her harshly right? So I'll ask . . .what makes you (or any of us) a better judge of what people are right for her than she is?

Oh Shut it POV!!!

Not this time.

This is for REAL Petra fans (just a joke Mr. Resident Contrarian), and brief, but deserved rant.

So spare me, us the De Facto Hi Highfalutin-minded-brow Pontificating and Posturing.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

^Nope you don't get off that easily. Though kudos on the attempt at deflection. I'm well aware of my own criticisms of PK. Not as harsh as yours. And since they were got me labelled as "not a real fan" I'd have to guess yours make you "not even a pretend fan".

Seriously though - saying she has no backbone and/or perspective is pretty rough.

I truly think someone from abroad on the team would help her game a lot - it'd be a signal for her unconscious that she's the real deal, she's expected to dominate and be #1. Not to mention the bigger pool of competent people. More expensive? Probably yes, but worthy a try. And English usage aspect again.

Maybe ("pretty rough"?

I think there's good basis for it. However, I didn't (thus did not) want to go "all in" so soon.

We still got the summer season, US Open, and Petra just won Wimby by golly. Gotta give the girl a chance.

Plus, it was a question (and I feel a legitimate one). This type of stuff is really no "news", and it follows another alleged "worldwide" search from/by her team. You can't make this stuff up. You know exactly what I'm saying POV.

This is one of the reasons why I stopped following, reading Petra news so closely....It's stuff like this that will drive you batty if you did. Trust me, a lot here (such as Cosmoose, Artic Moose, Queen Petra Fan, etc.), hell even yourself POV, know exactly what I'm talking about.

Of course, its' Petra's career, and she can do as she pleases. No doubt. But there's a good record of how seemingly 100% of her team comes from the Cersonek sphere (an no I'm not including Katie, who probably probably strongly recommenced/encouraged by the WTA after her break out 2011 season), despite their alleged/current "worldwide searches". Is it some type of joke?
