I liked the last part: "…and I don’t mind riding rollercoasters!". So that's why she chose to work for Petra.

You should check out some of her tapes from 2011, but why not, there is always some room for improvements.

LOL. Back during her semifinal run in 2010 her English was atrocious.

She's improved immensely! And her confidence in her English has also improved a lot. Haha.

Petra's english improved alot but it goes away when she is under pressure\nervous during some of those interviews, she should work on that as you can see her tongue just stops moving and she just blabbers something quietly and quickly

Re: Random Posts/miscellaneous/anything Petra :)

Do you guys know what's the deal with Petra and Prostejov club/Cernosek? I have read somewhere that she's obliged to pay 30 % of her (hopefully net) revenue. Does anyone know?

Re: Random Posts/miscellaneous/anything Petra :)

Is it just me, or has Petra's Wimbledon win been almost a non-event for most of the tennis world? It's as though everyone knows that she's not going to be a week-in, week-out force dominating the tour; that her second slam title was expected, and therefore hardly news.

"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

P. Kvitova def. S. Williams 6-2, 6-3

It should be about 10 percent for prize money and 25 percent for advertising contracts.

The cut from Petra's, Lucie's, Berdych's etc. earnings help Prostejov finance future stars. Many such investments will probably never pay off so it's a risky business. Petra is now Cernosek's golden egg. The higher Petra's marketing value, the better for him and for the club. I wonder if he signs any new deals after this Wimbly title.

Check this great and insightful article:

Cetkovska can be character from Ratatouille, one can be Eva (wall-e)

I still need more animated heroine, any idea ?

Nice work, Paul!

You can find the female heroines in the Incredibles (Elastic-girl and Violet) and maybe you could use some from Toy Story (Jessie or Barbie ).
