Re: 2012 Fed Cup - Lioness Petra leads her pride against Germany

If I was Petra, I would take off Fed Cup this year, especially if it will/can conflict with Doha, Dubai, Indian Wells, which is the reason she's removed Paris Indoors in the frst place (she said it made her tired for those tournaments).

I wonder if she's doing this out of responsibility/patriotism, or cause she wants to.

All year long she plays as an individual tennis player, responsible just for herself. Fedcup or Hopman cup are unique opportunities for her to play as part of a team. And yes, she's a big patriot. She's said she was very influenced in this area by the victory of the Czech ice-hockey team at the Nagano Olympics in 1998. It was the first-ever Olympics in which the best players in the world participated (all NHL stars, including Wayne Gretzky) She watched it as a 8-year old kid. I think she also has a lot of fun with other Czech girls during these Fed Cup weeks. It's also an opportunity for Kotyza and Ivanko to have some time off.

Re: 2012 Fed Cup - Lioness Petra leads her pride against Germany

I think its good that Petra is playing Fed Cup right away.
It helps her move on from AO and look forward instead of dwelling too much on her loss to Maria.
Besides, Czech girls really do get along with each other quite famously.

And by skipping Paris Indoors, she will have one week off before Doha and Dubai. And another week off before Indian Wells and Miami.
Good scheduling.

If that lineup is all the Germs can muster, then I think the Czech chicks have an excellent chance to win.

Thank you Queen Petra and squad for representing CZ.

German team impresses me.
3 singles players are in top 30.

I think Petra can defeat both Sabine and Julia.
But Iveta might lose both of her matches.
So the tie will probably be decided by the doubles match.

@QPF

That looks like a good team to me. Shrugs.

There's no guarantee that Lucie could beat Georges or Lisicki (all head cases, with Lisicki being more talented), if Petra goes off one match.

QPF,sometimes you're like one of those heel wrestling commentators that automatically bad-mouths the hero and cheers all the villains...at least you're on Petra's side,though,so we don't have to go to war with you

Petra's photo looks so beautiful. Prettier even than BZS and Iveta.

"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005

Re: 2012 Fed Cup - Lioness Petra leads her pride against Germany

Yeah,it's a great profile pic.....I wonder if Cosmoose is only going to alter the name of the opponent(i.e.,Lioness Petra leads her pride against ____)or invent other catchy titles along the way...either way is okay with me--it's nice to have a regular FC thread,regardless

Re: 2012 Fed Cup - Lioness Petra leads her pride against Germany

Hi

I'll be in Stuttgart and I'm happy to see the champions from last year, especially Petra (besides the german girls of course )
I think it is no surprise, that I favor a victory for Germany
But it will be very hart to win. Let's see.


Some of you will be in Stuttgart?

I'm thinking about going (but I'll probably go skiing to the mountains instead ). Is the venue easily accessible from the center of Stuttgart and do you know the ticket price and the capacity of the arena ? Do you think it will be sold out ?

I've also heard that Stuttgart has great Porsche and Mercedes museums. Could you recommend some non-tennis activity?

Thanx a lot.
