Feel good about her not being on CC or grandstand. She started Wimby from back courts up, so it might be a good karma for her. Hopefully Medina Garrigues is a clay courter I kinda expect, she is beatable. Fingers crossed PK is not gonna be in UE-rusty mode.

Petro, pojd!!
no coverage outside centre court, the grandstand is just too small to put a camera there
next week in Cincy, hopefully we will have three courts with camera coverage!

I thought about that. Good point. But at least at Wimbledon we got to watch everyone of her matches.

Here, it's like Eastbourne all over again. We have only one camera on Center Court, at a loaded tournament.

Hopefully, she'll have similar luck to either Eastbourne or Wimbledon?

Cross your fingers indeed. Livescore is always so much more stressful in a close match or coming from behind.

I agree. Petro, pojd!!

Thanks. Yup, Vikapower has done extraordinary work - as she is also a Petra fan, going to request if she would consider moving her thread into Petra's Forum where it will receive due appreciation & make the forum facets near complete (No point in re-inventing the wheel when Vikapower has done a great job). Lets hope she agrees to the request from Petra's Forum

Re: Rogers Cup, Toronto

Peng withdraws.

Everybody cross your fingers for a court change and some sort of stream.

i don't know if she withdraws, but Petra is already practicing on court 1 according to twitter several minutes ago, it's unlikely she will get CC today since her game is about to start

i'm sure if Peng withdraws, they will arrange Canadian Aleks Wozniak to CC

But that would require a schedule change.

It seems the obvious thing to do is to choose the best available 11:00 match.

yeah, you're right, Petra goes to Grandstand, and Francesca goes to CC

Re: Rogers Cup, Toronto

Are they F-ing joking?

How could they possibly choose Schiavone over Kvitova?

At least the "great chinese battle" was a defensible choice.

Re: Rogers Cup, Toronto

Lots of interview time with Petra in the most recent vid on the WTA webpage...where you can see the sweet,beautiful dork struggle with her English

When the Lizards play their Trump card, humanity suffers

Monica Puig, guapa campeona de tenistas latinas

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Nice to see that the skies quit pissing acid rain on Toronto long enough for Petra to finish off her match

Re: Rogers Cup, Toronto

So 7-6 6-3 against Medina Garrigues.

First match in a while for her ofcourse, so I'm glad that she pulled through
There have been a few upsets allready this tournament. Hopefully she can pick it up now and get some rhythm.
