Forgive me if I overlooked any details from previous posts,but is this a league that Petra has participated in before??Is it invitation only or are any Czech professionals welcome to compete??

EDIT: Just went back and read where Meelis used the term 'nominated',so I guess the league organizers make those decisions

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Yes, she has played it before. She was already in the team when Prostejov won it in 2007, maybe even before?

Its kinda a similar to World Team Tennis, but with real tennis clubs. Also Germans, Italians, French etc. have their own club competitions.

Haven't heard Petra or other players mention it in interviews(not saying that they haven't),so I wonder how big it is in those countries.....I'd GUESS that it's not as special as Fed Cup

Lots of interesting Petra info regarding 2011 WTA Stats Leaders.

The stats that meant the most to me were: Wins Versus Top 10 Players (13-Radwanska had 9) and Wins Versus Top 5 Players (7-tied with Stosur).

Petra is looking damn strong heading into 2012. I'm predicting right now she wins at least two grand Slams in 2012. I predict she will defend her Wimbledon title and also regain her honor at next year's French Open. It would also not surprise me at all if she continues to stun the tennis world and beats Serena at the Australian Open. Book it.

Petra is the best!!!

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

I'm wondering where is 18majors right now?! When Petra indeed rocks the world at Istanbul and Moscow, he/she is completely gone from this forum
I wish he/she will be back when Petra is having trouble finding her form sometime next year

very true, but the stats that should really be included is the winning percentage in semis and finals
Petra is 8-1 in the semis and 6-2 in the finals if you include Fed Cup, that would be 10-1 and 8-2

people who really don't understand the importance of these stats could think about Vika this year, the 3 defeats to Petra (all in semis or finals) cost her 1300 points and 1,500,000 USD

Great points Reyeszjj.

I really hope Petra can open the new year in her present form and become the dynamo we know she can be.
2012 is going to be a fascinating year for the WTA and Petra and for us fans. I can't wait for it all to start!!!

Petra is the best!!!

Maybe 18 majors was so embarrassed from being wrong so many times, they gave up or disappeared?

I have seen them post one time or another on GM, so I know they exist.

Oh well! Shrugs.

Correction: Petra is 6-1 in finals this year, and 7/9 in her career.

That is WTA main draw finals, unless your including her Prague Challenger final, as well. Most people don't.

Yeah,even though Petra got nervous,by her own account,in several of those big matches,she was rarely so uptight that she seriously unraveled,and she often got back on track even when an opponent had a nice,quick run.As you contrasted above,that's a special quality that's displayed only by true champions

Impressive stats, indeed. And even more impressive when I heard Petra saying in an interview that she regarded the Eastbourne final match as more of a "theater show" than a tennis match, because of strong wind.

Sorry,I don't get the connection;what did Petra mean by 'theater show'??Was she talking about the open-air theaters from the earlier centuries where the wind could disrupt the sets and throw props out of place??
