Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Berdych will not win YEC. He hasn't got Petra's champion mentality.

Yeah,I've never even heard ATP fans mention him as one of the pretenders(e.g.,Murray) to the true champs.Still,even though Hopman Cup is kind of minor compared to Fed Cup,it'd be nice if he could help Petra do well there,too

Petra will present award for "best" female singer. (I hate these awards. It is not about music, it is popularity contest. Nobody under 30 cares. But Černošek cares.)

Sad, but true. He has probably already outdone himself in London.

Is this a Czech version of the 'People's Choice Awards' where Petra is presenting??

I thought you said she should be up in the Tatra's by now (remember your countdown yesterday said "1 day to go")?

Is she leaving and going back (or just didn't leave yet, or till Monday)?

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

She mentioned 26th, but TV is more powerful.
She wears simple black dress. She was asked to guess tennis players from audio.

Again,it's a little 'Paul'-ishly vague;do you mean Petra is APPEARING on the 26th of Nov.?....And TV is more powerful than WHAT??Certainly not more powerful than your M.Mushrooms,right?

Okay,so you're saying that TV obligations,committed or prospective,will override Petra's training schedule.Thanks for clarifying,but I hope that's not always the case

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

My guess is that 'holding thumbs' is tantamount to crossing fingers---as long as Petra doesn't start leaving camp and interrupting training for TV appearances,then we needn't worry that she's going too global

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Oh. So the TV show is the last thing she'll do, before she leaves off to training? OK.

That makes more sense. And I agree with Bruce, if she was going to leave training camp to do this, it would of been crazy. Luckily she appears not, and you clarified it for us Paulmara.

Thanks for all your info updates.

Good Luck With Petra. And I hope she doesn't tire herself out (or at least has some time to rest), before training camp, doing all these appearances? Lol

And Tomas Lost!! I hope his Karma doesn't rub off? Lol
