The image is Petra represented in the form of the classic two-tailed lion of old Bohemia (the western and central part of the present Czech Republic).

However! Petra is technically from Moravia-Silesia (Moravskosleský) in the northeastern portion of the country. In that corner of the country a double-tailed eagle with various backgrounds represents the area symbolically. So, is she a Moravian-Silesian eagress or a Czech lioness? To avoid being anal, I suggest we just go with the latter. Apparently, Petra's okay with it so why shouldn't we be. QPF
Hey Queen Petra Fan.

Petra's for country/Czech unity. Lol.

Thanks. I missed this (must of happened when I posted that article earlier), cause I was busy.

As always thanks for the Geography lesson, and that Lioness Pic. You know I had seen it a few weeks ago, and was wondering, "why in hell did they put Petra in that Ugly Ass symbol". Lol. She had claws and everything. But now I know,and it makes sense. She's the Czech Lioness. Got it!

Thanks Again.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Congratulations Petra Kvitova (and Vikapower for calling it) on your current #6 WTA ranking, with 5561 ranking points.

Petra is only 110 points behind LI NA for the #5 spot, and can pass her if she does well in Cincy, and/or Li Na gets knocked out early.

Petra is still currently #2 in the Race To Istanbul, with 5162 points; less than 700 points behind leader Caroline Wozniaki, and 77 points in front 3rd place race leader, Maria Sharapova.

Let's Hope that Kvitty can Slay them all this time/this week, making Cincinnati her new Lions Den, and go Big Game Hunting while playing there!?

She has a decent draw, so hopefully she'll be in good form, so she can feast on all her competitor's?

Good Luck in Cincinnati Petra!!!

Yes, I was going to write about it in the stats thread but nonetheless, she's 110 points from Li Na so the only thing Petra needs to do right now is to just make it 1 round better than the chinese or at least make the QFs and she'll clinch a new career high at #5... and as you noted out, if Li does not cover her 125 points by getting knocked out early for example Petra might not even need to win a round but let's to not diffuse such thoughts.

Yes, good luck Petra.

Quotable Quotes... Cincinnati's All-Access

Petra Kvitova

On her father's reaction to her winning Wimbledon...
"He cried. He was my coach until I was 16 and we worked so hard for so long. He still sees me as his little baby! But even though people recognize me more and are asking for autographs and pictures, me, I'm the same girl."

On her favorite surface...
"Before my favorite surface was hard, but now it's grass! Also, before this year I didn't think I could really do well on clay, but after I won Madrid I think I like it better. I like all surfaces, but my favorite is grass now."

On the Open...
"I like the US Open for sure, especially the night sessions with the crowds. In French Open and Wimbledon there aren't any night sessions. And it's in New York City - it's probably the most famous city in the world. And the surface is a little bit faster than other hardcourt tournaments, like Toronto, for example. I prefer indoor hardcourts, but I like that it's a faster outdoor hardcourt."

On when she thought to herself she could win a Slam...
"After I won Wimbledon! When I went to Wimbledon I didn't think I would win.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

It was posted on GM.

Quote:
Kvitova talked about not being 100%. "I played badly, made many mistakes, but she played well," she said. "In the second set I was a little dizzy and had cramping in my stomach. I may have been a little tired or something... I don't know what's wrong. I have a week off now, I hope I'll be better for the US Open."

"I've said it before - Petra and I are good friends. We always talk," Petkovic said. "She has asthma or something, I'm not sure, but she struggles when it's really hot and humid. I told her afterwards I hope she'll be fine for the US Open.

"She's a great girl. She stayed the same after all her success. I respect that."

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

New Haven Open at Yale tournament director Anne Worcester handed out her last two wild cards Thursday afternoon, giving them to French Open champion Li Na, ranked No. 5 in the world and No. 9 Marion Bartoli. That means the NHO at Yale will have four of the Top 10 players and seven of the Top 15 players in the world when the tournament starts this weekend.

I had been in close contact with both players and it was clear that the only way they would consider a wild card (to New Haven) would be if they did not win their round of 16 matches (in Cincinnati)," Worcester said. "Not that we ever want anyone to lose, but ¦" They both did.

"When we started hearing that Kim Cljsters wouldn't be able to play (abdominal tear) and that Venus (Williams) wasn't planning on playing and that (Petra) Kvitova wouldn't be able to play, we felt the luckiest we could get would be to get (Jelena) Jankovic, Bartoli and Li Na," said Worcester. "We exceeded our expectations by getting all three. It's all good."

"She never asked us to hold her a wild card," Worcester said of Williams. "But the logical assumption would be that she would consider a wild card because she needed matches but her agent told me the other day that she is still recovering and that she wasn't going to play before the Open."

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

QPF was active and dug something out. For Excelsior to rest little bit.

And how is Petra exceptional from human perspective?

Kotyza : I must say that with Petra it is precious combination I don´t wanna say ordinary but so warmhearted, open and nice character. It makes her successful in sport , in which it used to be said that player must be a little bastard to win. To suceed a player must have quality that are not popular. I personally don´ t think so and this lady proves it. When she is off the court she is very relaxed, a good person. But when she is on the court, she changed. I believe she is a pure sportwoman, that we talk about but they are vanishing. She looks that way and it is very likeable.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

What Kotyza said in that quote is exactly why I'm a fan. Wimbledon or no Wimbledon, she is just great because of that attitude on the court without the prima donna crap and celebrity-seeking off the court. But the biggest reason I'm a fan is that she hits WINNERS, which the rest of the tour have forgotten how to do.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Nice contributions by 'Mac' and 'Paulmara'...there are players who'll go unnamed here that are very good at fabricating--with the help of their p.r. teams--a phony,contrived Virgin Mary image...yet Petra is charmingly clumsy with how she presents herself,so it's almost as if she weren't 'sophisticated' enough to create such a facade.It's just about unanimous: I've heard only positive things said about Petra by other players and tennis insiders;either they don't know her well and can't comment or they're delighted by her character.....a REALLY easy gal to get behind

Don't be scared to open the door, Serena. It's not the Land Shark, it's only the doping agency
