Andy Murray plays 'football-tennis' i.e. playing football or just practising skills with a tennis ball though I'm not sure if it's quite the same as what you mentioned. I didn't know it was an actual sport until now.

Well,it would look pretty sexy if our lovely Lioness Petra laid a naughty Makiri over her knees and gave her a spanking...and it'd be even hotter if Makiri started ENJOYING that spanking from Petra......but I may have already gone a little too far with that description so I'll stop there

http://www.futnet.eu/about-futnet/
Futnet is a ball game with almost 100 years of tradition which combines speed, precision, technical skill and strategy. It is a sport with its own identity, own rules and players, though in many countries it is still regarded only as a complement to football practice. It is a popular recreational as well as competition activity in many parts of Europe, above all Czech Republic, France, Slovakia, Switzerland, Romania, Hungary, etc., and it is gradually gaining popularity also outside the old continent.

Futnet is a sport for all as demonstrated by the different competition categories: men, women, juniors (aged 16 – 18), youngsters (aged 13 – 15), children (aged up to 12). Very popular are also tournaments for veterans.

It looks like BZS is playing right along with Petra---either THAT or she's a very interested,close-range cheerleader

Petra will choose 6 best drawnings from school kids. There will be some non-diet, non-gluten-free meal.

Winning a 'golden slam' would pretty much be a signature year for Petra or ANY player,even an established legend

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Schedule for the Hopton Cup is out.

http://hopmancup.com/Teams-Schedule/Match-Schedule.html

Kvitova plays:

Monday 2 January - Pironkadonk
Wednesday 4 January - Trashtek
Friday 6 January - Wozniacka
Saturday 7 January - final against either Cake, AMG, Na Li or Jarka.

Maybe someone should open a new thread about 2012 to post this?

I don't remember if these matches count towards her WTA record, like Fed Cup matches? I don't think they do (ITF sponsored or not); cause their exhibitions.

But Pironkva could be a tough first match for her. Oh. I forgot; it's not Grass!!

Yeah,and he's also one of Petra's countrymen so there's likely added affection b/c of that.

At the risk of being morbid,I fear that 18 Majors is either dead or incarcerated...he couldn't have done anything to get banned cuz his inoffensive posts were always less than 10 words.Seriously,though,I hope that--wherever he is--he enjoyed Petra's Wimbledon and YEC triumphs
