Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles
Lindsay had made those comments earlier this year, after Wimbledon, and I posted them. And yes, those same people you mentioned, didn't want to hear/believe Lindsay then; so I'm glad she repeated herself for their Top 30 (and our amusement). Lol
As far as why these reporters/broadcasters take so long to recognize certain players; in Lindsay's (like a lot of American Reporters), she just hadn't watched Petra play.
I remember when Martina picked Petra to do well at the French Open and to win Wimbledon, Lindsay admitted/said "Martina I don't know much about Kvitova, I haven't really seen her play". That's the truth. Lol
A lot of these folks (especially Tennis Channel reporters, except Martina) didn't really watch Petra play, till the Wimbledon semi-final or finals this year.
Many of the European, some Australian, and even less American broadcasters, were well ahead on the Petra curve, though.
