My only argument is that people in here should start both trusting and respecting her decisions more. If that's undefendable for you then I have nothing else to say
Yeah definitely. I think people here tend to imagine that Petra is still that young girl who is practicing with her father in Fulnek and has no own opinion.
But one cannot wonder about this sometimes because what is happening "out there" lately.

It's a strange way to talk privately (on mostly English-based forum) isntead of the usual way - just to send a PMs each other.
Imagine what could happen if for example I and Petronius or other Czechs here suddenly started to write only in Czech in the English only discussion so far here.

But nothing against the tastes (if that makes any sense in English ) we all have the Google translator after all, don't we.

Petra Kvitová * Tomáš Berdych * Lucie Šafářová * BZS * Angie Kerber
Karolína Plíšková * Andy Murray * Roger Federer * Tommy Haas

Me and Petronius had some nice date in a coffeterie in Prague Chodov, because we live near each other (in the same district of Prague), so your comments were almost close to truth. While Petronius has already exchanged some post messages here in this TF in French (he is a solid interpretor and a well-educated guy), I like to speak to some people of this forum in German (my parents are Czech Germans too). No reason to wonder.

I only wondered why didn't you use PMs for your German discussion with Jimmie, if most of other poster cannot understand what you two are talking about what's the point of not using PMs other than lazyness.
The argument that you can speak German or Czech freely here just because some posters can understand you is irrelevant becausd it is simply unfair to the other posters (for example our fellow Americans) who has to use Google translator to know wth we are talking about.

I know I cannot forbid you anything I just think it's weird.

Remember, it's a name.

SMH
There's a reason? Then let's hear it, because I can think of few things as silly as sticking with a ridiculously misspelled name rather than admitting your own error.

Kvitova * Vaidisova * Garcia * Robson

I'm amazed, it almost doesn't sound like her at the end saying it's possible she wins the USO or that she will feel like at home there.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Nice article, guys, BUT:

'This year Kvitova, seeded at three, should avoid similar humiliation against the relatively obscure Frenchwoman Kristina Mladenovic.'

That's the keyword I guess

GL to Petra.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

If it wasn't for the clay courts at the US Open I think Petra could have a chance

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

The part about cleaning the house one day after her big win was excellent, this is exactly the kind of stuff really like Petra for

Well I did survive through her 2013 season so I think I can handle anything she throws at us now
Btw I've enjoyed reading through these posts for the last month or so. I've never been on these online forums so it was quite a revelation. I wasn't aware she had so many nicknames lol I'm particularly fond of "Shitra"

I am sure this is aimed at Petra. I actually wanna see this partnership although I doubt it'll ever happen.
