Radwanska's coach Tomasz Wiktorowski comments about Petra and her form:
It's nice to hear that other coaches recognize Petra's potential and I have to agree with him, this year Petra lost her touch. Offseason is near and hope she restores her good form.
Yes, it's nice to hear that indeed Shify; cause those of us who follow or noticed Petra's form very closely, have been shouting this all year.
Yes, Serena, Vika and Sharapova are all arguably playing better in 2012 (particularly Serena). But it's Petra's lack of form, compared to 2011 YEC, that has held her back more than anything (and yes, her brain farts, errors and shrinkage at the big moments, contributed as well).
I'm glad Radwanksa's coach confirmed this and our beliefs.
Of course, we don't know what he said about the others (didn't view the link yet). But I guess it's hard to say something similar about other players, when he was comparing Petra to the "Perfect Tennis Player".
You're right! It does reinforce the confidence, and belief we all have/had in Petra, including her movement--which was well more than adequate last year. I declared Petra the best Tennis WTA prospect, since Serena or even Graf, after seeing her in 2010. Her play in 2011--during some matches at Brisbane, at Paris Indoor, Madrid, Linz, Wimbledon and especially the YEC, only reinforced this.
Now, if this guy knows and says this. What Da Hell is Kotyza saying (and is it sinking in). And what would someone like Martina saying it (unless Petra doesn't want to live up to those expectations with her), mean to Petra?
Excellent quote to hear, after a "Disappointing Year".
