I'm a Maria fan and I remember that Maria was the talk of the whole world for at least one month after she won Wimbledon in 2004. It isn't right that Petra hasn't got the same media coverages since her convincing win more than one month ago.
Petra needs to get a new agent to maximize her financial potential.
Part of it also is, Petra didn't play for 5 wks, she was laid up in the Tatra Mountains in Slovakia training, She didn't visit a major European City (with all due respect to the ones in the Czech Republic and Slovakia), she didn't visit NY, or another major American City, and she has a local Czech based agent. So all that has a lot to do with it, as well.
Let's just say Petra was trying to rest up, train, get fit, and win (though she did get the Net Jets deal in between). It appears she placed tennis and herself, over promotion and media accessibility. Not sure if you can blame her for that, after all the matches she played/won (though I certainly see your point as well).
Let's see the type of promotion she gets when in North America?
To be honest, not exactly sure promotion and endorsements equal dumb reporters, who don't follow Petra enough, talking about her-unless their colleagues are (it's a monkey see, monkey do business, as most tennis reporters are cowardly idiots)? She'd have to schedule interviews with them (Like the one she's doing with a non sports, CNN reporter now), and send them PR
. It's obvious that wasn't something Petra was doing directly after Wimby.
Yes! Now that she's in North America, Petra will do some interviews, cause people will want to talk to her. What you're saying is, "will her people go out to promote herself, and get her name out there as champion and a contender, so we can stop reading dumb ass tennis predictions, excluding Petra?" Mmmmhhh. I get it. Lol.
We'll see? There's no better promotion than winning. Absolutely!
