That's what I call LOOMING!

Petra casts a giant shadow on women's tennis, even when she is not there physically

Re: 2012 Petra's Spring Hard Court Season

Dang,Petronius!I would've missed the symbolism if you and Cosmoose hadn't declared it outright,but that IS an interesting touch that Petra,even in her absence,looks down over the other players

Since Wozniacki had fallen back into her hole with her coach, things should be a bit easier.

Most generalissimos have been fascists,I think,but I can accept your premise somewhat....still,Petra needs to play one of our tourneys before she starts using our language to promote her new military ranking

Well, considering that Fulnek is situated just one-hour drive from Slavkov (Austerlitz), which saw the biggest military triumph of this guy, who once had the whole of Europe at his mercy



I would not be surprised, if Petra had made a school trip to the battle site and got some inspiration

Yup, it looks like this - favorite one when reenactors are in their best.
Our class (many years back) was and to my knowledge it is one of the more popular school trips.

Re: 2012 Petra's Spring Hard Court Season

Nice picture. I actually have a French cousin (HR manager at a French-owned Czech bank), who visits the site every year and takes part in the replay of this famous battle. Of course, he fights on the French side

BTW, that's a great picture of Martina you have as your avatar, I didn't know her legs were so toned

Murray's confirmed he'll play Queen's Club, so I'd expect an answer within the next few weeks.
