This guy is not a stalker, he's rather a voice mail threats maker who maybe doesn't even realize that he's doing anything against the law and doesn't want to admit that he threatened to harm her.

Maybe for people who meet the actual definition of the term that's often true. But in the way the word is used by much of the public - they can be. Many times they are. Unless you consider annoying as being harmful.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Can anyone post a translation of that interview with Kotyza? I can't get Google to do it for some reason.

"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005

P. Kvitova def. S. Williams 6-2, 6-3

Sure, just wait a few minutes.
Quote:
Kvitova is coming back to the courts. "She remelted Wimbledon into the hard work", the coach Kotyza says.



The two time Wimbledon champion will head to Montreal tomorrow. The return to the tournaments is awaiting Petra Kvitova in the Canadian city. She used to suffer from the super successes in the past. Her coach David Kotyza feels respect from the upcoming matches this year as well. On the other hand he claims: "I'm optimistic, she shows that she deals with lots of thing better during the last trainings. She matured mentally and improved physically, it will show up."

Jan Jaroch

Redactor



How did you gain strength during last four week since Wimbledon for the rest of the season?
„Good question. (laughs) We'll see after Petra starts to play the tournaments, but she decided well when she took a week off from the media rush after Wimbledon. Firstly, she enjoyed the triumph much more and secondly, she rested quite a bit. Then, we started the fitness training with Brano (Bundzik – new fitness trainer), we're working on tennis second week in a row now. We skipped the Stanford tournament, she wasn't 100% after all. In adition, the US Open Series is long and she used to run out of mental juice during the most important tournament.“

It seemed that after-Wimbledon rush around the champion wasn't so hectic like in 2011 from the outside. Can this help as well?
„I believe so. She restricted some activities to rest properly and the rest that should have happened like the Fulnek's and Prostejov's celebrations carried out quite pleasantly. It was fine.“



What state of mind is Petra in right now? Is she back on earth or is she still flying in the skies?
„She's back on earth surely. The training is not easy at all, she has to fully concentrate on what she's doing. Plus, a little disenchantment comes after the grass every year. She utilized it to work even harder in my opinion. When I'm comparing the preparations after Wimbledon and the output that she's producing during the trainings or during the sparring, I can see advance compared to the last seasons. I'm very pleased with how it's going from my perspective.“

There was a results slump after the super successes in the past. Do you feel respect from the Petra's comeback?
„Sure, I do. It can be a colder coffee for her especially after extraordinary result. It will be essential to find a new motivation to do something big again. Petra already won two Grand Slam titles, the main task is not to chase points now, but more likely to focus on the bigger tournaments and try to win even more titles. Personally, I take the upcoming tournaments as a preparation and test before the US Open. The main thing comes to play in New York City where she haven't done that well so far. But I think she has a good chance to overcome her best result so far (R4) because of my latest observation.“

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Petra's draw is loaded with pushers, counterpunchers, tricky opponents, dont get your hopes high. Eeww Flipkens, Dellaqua, Oprandi, Makarova, Giorgi, Petkovic... and Jankovic!

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Eh

I'm not scared, if she's ready to play.

Biggest problem will be; Petra getting her rhythm and timing down, especially considering she hasn't hit on the Montreal courts the past few weeks (regardless if she was hitting with anyone or not in the Czech Republic).

Remember, she won this tournament a couple of years ago (after playing the first few rounds horribly until she got her rhythm). And after her Wimbledon victory, she should be brimming with confidence (and not the previous, "I was so nervous" crap/talk). Lol. So let's keep things in perspective, and hope for the best?

We'll see?

I hope it makes her feel that she needs to prove herself.

Does is mean that she will practice in IMG Academy in Florida or is it just all about management and finding new sponsors which cannot help her tennis at all?

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

It means more money for Petra from endorsement deals and hopefully right pressure.
