Below some examples of names you may recognize that show Kvitty ain’t bad at all in her choice of Adam.

Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry – 10 year age difference.
Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon – 10 year age difference.
Yanni and Linda Evans in 1989 – was a 12 year age difference.
Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon – 12 year age difference.
Mira Sorvino and her husband Chris Backus – 14 year age difference.
Ashton Kutcher and his wife Demi Moore – 15 year age difference.
Geena Davis and her husband Dr. Reya Jarrahy – 15 year age difference.
Cher and Rob Camilletti in 1991 – was a 17 year age difference.
Mary Tyler Moore and her husband Dr. Robert Levine in 1987 – was an 18 year age difference.
Maxwell Caulfield and his wife Juliette Mills – 18 year age difference.
John Travolta and Diana Hyland – there was an 18 year age difference. (remember boy in the bubble, that is when they met)
Elizabeth Taylor and her then seventh husband (eighth marriage) Larry Fortensky in 1994 – was 20 year age difference.
Barbara Hershey and Naveen Andrews – 21 year age difference.
Ivana Trump and husband Rossano Rubicondi – 24 year age difference.
Rocky Parker and her then husband Patrick Dempsey in 1991 – 27 year age difference
Kim Cattrall and Alan Wyse – 28 year age difference.
Percy Gibson and Joan Collins – 32 year age difference.


Having the stability in her emotional life albeit with a teenager should only be seen as plus as it allows her to focus on her tennis & not worry about being a trophy to an ATP hound on tour. Case in point – Brucy’s publicly declared ex-fave of TF fame did not suffer commercially nor did her fan base decrease despite her ‘open all hours’ life-style.
As a fellow confirmed cradle snatcher (my wife is 10 years younger) I can only say "Whatever makes her happy". Just keep winning and making us proud baby!

Who's Bruce's fave again, Moose (I got a lot on my mind at the moment)? I forgot.

So her leg's were a ATM machine, huh? Lol.

Thanks.

Wouldn't it be easier to ask me directly?

She doesn't deserve open mention in Petra's forum,so I'll give you the fairly simple hint that she's one of the massive fluke Slam champions in tennis history,but spotty results had nothing at all to do with my change of heart as I'm a Dinara fan who's plenty experienced with such nightmares.Where I finally drew the line was when she showed a complete lack of class by firing the coach,Gunthardt,and the trainer,Marija Lojanica,who pulled her career out of the toilet.I can't cheer for someone who doesn't have any semblance of integrity or moral character,regardless of how successful she is or isn't.In the end,no respected leaders in the sport will ever think of her as a champion;she'll be viewed as a lucky fraud who benefitted from Henin's 1st retirement...and was eventually exposed

On the bright side,this mini-drama motivated me to join the Petra forum in 2010 as I wanted to cheer for a gal I respected...and one who didn't gain her fame by taking her clothes off for the camera or sleeping around with ATP guys and other sleazy playboys.Petra first earned my respect back in 2008 at Memphis when she left defending champ Venus dumbfounded after knocking her out in the 1st Round.That planted the seeds for my fanship of Petra that has grown over these last few years

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

I´ m posting the rest of the interview but it is only czech transcript with no corrections, not totally completed, just one listening
I will have absolutely no time tomorrow
If anybody wants to make corrections i would be glad
I d be happier if anybody wants to translete a part or two
Also there is an americanh teacher from San Diego in Prague (i would guess) with a bunch of poor students trying to learn english hmmm


Part 1 introduction

Výborná : blabal
Kvitova Dobrý den
Stihnete si vůbec uvědomit co se děje

Ješte stále tedˇnemohu uvěřit a že sjsem opravdu talíř vyhrála když ho držíte nad hlavou tak vnímáte jenom ty fotografovi jak se musíte všude pohnout aby vás dobře vyfotili
Výborná Takže ještě to nedošlo
No ono je to možná dobý já mám tu sezonu furt pokračuju nemám konec, takže není to čím bych mohla skončit sezonu
Znovu naběhnu na trninjkový pogram a po jedu dál

Part 2
Blabla

To si pamatuji ,když jsem to říkala ,po finále přišla jedna paní z niku a říkala ted se t izmění život sji na to připravená a já říkma já si nemyslím že to bude zase tak hrozné nedokázal jsem si předstvit co se všechno bude dít kolme mě a vypadá to že je t ohodně médiií ale jáí sjem to měla skchvýálěn napěchované všechno na jeden den abych to všechno měla za sebou a nemusela pak jsezdíit do prahy co druhýde nv týdnu ale abyc h to všech no stihla
Určitě ten den kdyžž jsem byxla u prana prezidenta v Karvlých varech a potou Ct a niky tak byl náročný
V : Já si střeba nemumím představit že bych letěla poprvé soukromých letedelm do kaprových varů abch ušetřila čad jaké to je když člověk tahle seedí v soukromém tryskáči a říká siZdá se mi to nebo dto berete úplně normálně potřebujete se tam rychel dostat
K Je t ozvláštní ,ale přesdně tak brala jsem to tak že tam potřebuji být co nejdřív a autem by se t onedal ostihnout a navíc ten čas byl hrozně cenný takže t obyla pomoc
V balba pocity jiných předchozích vítězů
K pamatuji se že když říkala martina navratilová , že nejtěžší je první Grand slam a potom už te to dobrý ,. To zatím nevím, to vám řeknu pa k , ale jinka že to je t o nejvíc pro tenistu co mlže vyhrát a ještě k tomu wimlbedono si myslím už trošku poznvámám , ale spší si to uvědomím až když skončím s karierou
To je ještrě hdoně předčasné
Doufejme
Balbal Co vnímá tenista nejvíc z turjan (na rozdíl od díváků)
My is to mo neužijem je to všude stejně na turnajích treinii
Ono je to všeude stejný ,v tom wimbledonu byla výhoda v tom že jsem měli pornajatý baráček takže jsem se cítili jako doma, mohli jsme tam vařit , jednou jsem tam měli barbeque,ale jinka to bylo více měné stejné tenis fitnes všechno jídlo
Takže vy si to moc neužívíte
Vvícemené ne
Jak to máte s letenkou blaba
My to nevíme má me na to agenta , který když muza voláme le

Do londýna jsem měli jenom jednostrmětrnouleternku že si pak tu druhou dokoupíme tam to nebyl problém
Já jsem nikdy nebyla na slavnostním plese pro winmbeldonskou vítěze ,jak to vypada
Abych byl upřímná tak jsem se moc netěšila
Fakt Vy jste se báal že bude tancovat
To ne už poto m,ale spí to byl opozdě a bylajsem unavená a nejradši bych si lehla a musím říct ,ž když jsem tam byla .. dají vám tam najevo že vy jste ten vítěz , že vy jste vyhrál ten wimbledon , všichni si vás tam váží a tleskajíá byl to krásný zážitek
A člověk se hrnd probudí
Člověk se hend další den probudí , když už enmá ty šatry
Ty šaty vám tam půjčí , takže si je nemůžete nechat
Ne … No nbvevím to jsem se ani tak neptala ale myslím si že ne
A jak to ta m funguje to vám řeknou
Do šatny vewimbeldno dovezli pár šatů s panía mnoha vizážistakami nevím jak bych tp nazvala potom jsem vybarli 4 šaty třeba které jsem si zkusila a potom jsme usoudili že tyvhle modré byli nejhezčí
a nebylo tataké kvůli tomui že to byla k modrému laku který vým přinesl štestí
to en kfydž jsem pak jeli v autě s tren=ram tak sje mříkala ty jo on mi ten lak ladí is šatama byl jsem tak překvapená určitě jsem to tak nezamýšlela
Vyjste určitě dostal spoust udátrků trofej peníze to je neodiskutvalteln
Od ostatních co cám tak udělalo největší radosts
Květiny nejvíce, pa k jsem od tetey jsem dostala hrozně krásné špetrky ale psše ručně vyráběné to se mi hrozně líbí , dostal jsem řetízek od pana černočka panana managera mého manažera z prostejova
a občanství města fulneka
a občanství města fulneka a člsnství v klubu PK prostějov

patr 3

blabla
tnissové dětsví
nečetal jste agasihoi ho knížku open
No
Balal
Že nmel Tvrdého otce jste slyšla
To jsem slyšela
Zažila jsete tenisové rodiče
Ano to si pamatuji
A může popdsat naším posluchačům jak taková instituce vypadá nebudte dioiplomatka řekněte co jste viděla
Tak samozřejměm někteří rodiče to prožívají víc než ty druzí a mylím si že zbytečně trstají dítě když zkazí nějaký míč nebo když prohraje když je to jenom sport . Evčina rodičů sy myslí že vychovajvíjí nějaké ho grandlasmové vítěze a že to bude podle jejich not a neuvědomují si ,že je to přece jenom sport a každý tam chce vyhrát a že to ty děti tak úplně nežerou .
Váš tatínke vás zlom
To nevím kdy to bylo , ale určitě mě nevyhvocvál s stím že bych měla hrát profesilonálen tenis a když jse mpoto m odešla do postřehová 16 17 když mi bylo tak jo dobrý budeme pikat možná někdy nevco vyhrajem nějaký ten zápas ,ael kdy si přesně mohl uvědomit kdy bych mohla vyhrát nějaký grandslam to netučším a nevím jetsli ho to vůbec nekdy předtím napadlo
A máte nekdy nejakou jasdnou tenisovou vzpomínku natéká tenis
Určitě fulnek kurt č 1 když jsem začínala pinkat s tatkou
A vaše první raketa
No jýí mylsím že to byla failvoa wilsonak
Byla už palstikovoa
Ale samozřejmě jsem začínal s dedkou na krájením masa s tím sej mměal t učest s zahrát než jsem dostala tuhel raketra
Mysem tomu říkali žeznické prkýnko
Jaké byly treninkay jako žák
Vždycky po skole škola byla vždychly priorita pro tatkau , pro rodiče, pak sejm šli na hodnku hodku apůl si zahrát , bylo to spíš pořád stejný tatka se hodně soustřeďoval na tu techniku a pilovali jsem ty údery postupně ne že byyhc začal hned já nevím hrát nějka strašné rallye pořád na sebe takle jsem tam pinkali
Výhoda trenkuu s klukam než s holkama
Tak já jsem hrála hlavně tatkou a sem tam sbrachama ale málo a jinka jsem nehrála vůbec s nikým do 16 17 když jxsem přišla do protstěova takže moc to nemůžu porovnat
Vy máte petro astma, je to pboleém
Byl to velký problém 2 roky Na us open tour nemohla jsem dýchat . S trenérem jsem to hodně poržívalia pak sejm šli na testy a zjistili proč se to děje byl to dobrá zpráva
A musím říct že sstamatech se d ávšechn o v pohodě dělat mám výborného dokrtoara tady v Praze a jsem hrozně vděčná

Part 4

Co se změnilo v 16 lzech prostějov
Byla to určitě změna bála jsem se trošku, protože jsem nevědeedal co tam budu muset všechno dělat a co se tam budše dít, protože ve flulneku jsem nedělala skotro nic tam jsem neměla žádný dohled nejakých trenérů a pověst všechno řídil tatka ,ale bylo to příjemné vrstevnice a mohla sejm tam viděl Berdycha asafarovaou jak tam treniují 1142
Říkala jsem si oni tady hrají tak dobře , řed sejsem tady jáí a nevím co tady předvedu
A říká si kolegové
Postupem času když mě pan kodet vzal na fed cup jako sparinpantreka tak se to postupně prohracoválvao a pak jsem s lucko u normálně povídali na turnajích chodili na večere tak asi jo
Jak se vstupuje do tenisového světa ,když člověk hrajk žakovské dorsotenceko ale pak nástup
Atk ájá měla to štěstí že jsem ty junioryk do 18 let úplně přeskočila do 16 sjem hráal všechno v česuk hrál jsem parduvbuckou juniorku a pak jsem dostal volně karty na tuejanej v čeku ženské, kde jsem hned spěla a nemusel ajsem se tam trápit , hmnerd sejm měla body a mohhla jsem vyjet na ženské turnaje do zahranicší
O to větší to susí bý š ok v idět Serun wiliams já chyb byl úplěn v šoku
Tak zas etak úplně tyrrchle to nebylo musela jsem di projít nwjaké ty neúsěochyý ale nejak sej mt opěchazela nevím a njeak to tak plynula a nejednou tady s vámi sefdím a povídám sio o vítězství ve winmbeldum
Pořád mám pocit že tomu stále nevěříte
Máta správný pocit
Já bych se na ten talíř chodila
Dívat
Měla jsem to tak měla jsem ho vystavenýdoma ,ale ted je u rodičů
Team
Kouč David koryta
Josef ivanko
To je tým a přes media a černoček
Family
Trerneři určitě nevím setli rina ale vyletni dobří kamarádii

Tenis Osamělý sport
Máte přáletel ve světe tenisu
Rozumíme si s holkama z 4ekasa ,chodíme na večeti sem tam, fed cup nád s hrozně utužuej , máme výbornou partu , co se týká zrahniřních mám kamarádku ze svycystak, když chvete tak si je tam najdet
Somalěost
Samozřejmě také se měl týká, nekdy na pokoji nemám c odělat a pustím si nějaké filym a nejradši bych byl a někde s někým sedela a povídala si takže je to tak i tak
Ale zase tak moc to neřešíte
Já to beru tajk jak to je nic s ít m neduálzere , jako s cestováním , nebaví mě jen na to leitšrě 2 h apak z hodiny ,ale to k tomu patří
No home ?
Ne nebojím já mám od malička doma ve fulneku a ted už mám druhý domov v prostějove takže nemám to tak

Seriously,it's not even a tough decision for me to choose which woman is more appealing;though Petra might not be as dazzling to the naked eye,she has an honest likability that probably originates,in part,from her small-town upbringing.Petra doesn't exaggerate or concoct injuries to make excuses for losses,nor does she ridiculously embellish stories about her childhood to make herself a sympathetic figure.As I've said before,I'll stay loyal to Petra regardless of her W/L as long as she remains true to basic principles of right and wrong and gives a sincere effort

Ahh/Thanks Bruce. I think I know who you're talking about?

Yeah. What a train wreck! Lol.

Glad you noticed Petra in 2008 and found her in 2010 (like I did).

Kudos!

Well,I certainly respect your love for teaching,though sometimes it gets frustrating when corporate execs wanna buy some cheap-ass,mediocre program like Rosetta Stone just to save money...then they stick their chests out to brag as if they were offering their employees some great benefit.Also,you've hooked up with some nice people.We don't meet many Czechs down here except in our big cities but I ran into one in our Sierra Tarahumara while he was hiking with his Slovak friend.Their English was very good...their Spanish...not so good

Back on track,I actually earned my Petra fan credentials somewhat when I insulted my buddy for calling her 'ugly'.He eventually forgave me and I had apologized,of course,but the new,fitter Petra is now on his personal list of Top 20 hottest WTA gals.Even back in 2008,I saw her as a diamond in the rough,looks-wise,and I was especially impressed by Venus' post-match reaction in Memphis.Quite often,the WS claim that they beat themselves with UEs...or that the opponent played the match of her life,but Venus was at a loss for words as if to say,"WTF just happened there?"...as if she KNEW that she had just faced a young lady who might pose a serious threat in the future.You'll notice how often younger players such as Caroline Garcia will take a set from a fave,go up 1 or 2 breaks again...and then lose........yet Petra finished the job,and that really got my attention

Very cool information. I know of at least two good looking Czech girls who speak Spanish fluently. And the wife of one of my students leads tour groups from Spain around Prague. Should I send them your way? My student would probably be hugely grateful. Going to Mexico from CZ costs a fortune. BTW: My grandfather on my dad's side was born in Ensenada but his family today are mainly congregated around San Telmo in BC. Our family name is Basque in origin. Unfortunately, my Spanish also sucks.

I can't believe you called Petra 'ugly'. She's not a beauty queen but c'mon she's not scary! I thought she looked fantastic at the Wimbledon Champions Dinner and when she returned to Fulnek. In time she'll become even more polished and lovely. It turns out she likes that girly stuff. She's not butch at all, thank god. Let's hope she never loses that charming personality also.

That's a great story about Venus. I would loved to have seen that interview. As for discovering Petra, I haven't been this excited about following a player since I was a hardcore Ivan Lendl fan back in the day. What a strange coincidence that I should be living in his home country now and that my wife comes from his hometown.

You need to re-read part of my post again b/c you got a bit turned around;it was my FRIEND who called Petra 'ugly' upon which I insulted him in return since he's not a tremendously attractive fellow...but,as I said,we smoothed things over and my friend has changed his tune now that Petra has lost weight,toned up and gotten her braces off

On to more important stuff---Steffi Graf definitely wasn't at all charismatic in her younger days as a champion,but she maintained favor with the WTA community simply by comporting herself well and winning impressively.Petra doesn't have to match that same level of success;if she just carries herself in a similar,dignified fashion then people will accept her even if she doesn't charm folks' socks off.Most true tennis fans won't demand that Petra be a glamour queen as long as she's sincere and true to herself,and they'll give her the credit she deserves for her triumphs

That's a great story about Venus. I would loved to have seen that interview. As for discovering Petra, I haven't been this excited about following a player since I was a hardcore Ivan Lendl fan back in the day. What a strange coincidence that I should be living in his home country now and that my wife comes from his hometown.
.....stalking .. ....stalking.......... I can't.

Petra will be a charming and diginified champion like Graf or Maria.
