Thanks much for that info.

Re: Random Posts/miscellaneous/anything Petra :)

I just saw they put up a giant poster at Indian Wells for people to sign. I teared up a little. From what I've seen, Petra has such strength, it truly amazes me.

Re: Random Posts/miscellaneous/anything Petra :)

Does anyone have highlights/full matches of Petra's @ Olympics last year ( especially against Keys, Wozniacki) ? Please share the link/video if you do.

NBC has all the rights to video coverage of the last Olympics and the archived video highlights are meager for both men's and women's tennis at their site. YouTube also doesn't have much and if they don't have anything then you're out of luck, unless someone videotaped her matches and will upload same at some point. The 10 minutes of video highlights of Petra's match with Kate is the longest of her video experience in Rio, 2016 I've seen.

Petra's own website has just one video of her Olympic experience, but it's just a 4 min. video of an interview she had with a Czech gent as they walk along a beach after getting a refreshment from a local stand. No tennis highlights.....

Lastly, there is a website for the Olympics (Olympic.Org) that has the event going back decades. All videos of events on tape are just brief highlights, nothing extensive. So, unless otherwise indicated, it appears you won't find success for lengthy videos of her matches in Rio.

I know. But it sucks. I am just hoping that someone recorded the match/highlights and could share it. I absolutely loved her match against Wozniacki and didn;t get to watch her match against keys. Dying to see them.

There are so many highlights/full match videos of 2012 Olympics on youtube though.

Thanks for those little videos anyway

Re: Random Posts/miscellaneous/anything Petra :)

NBC took down their replays of tennis matches. they were available at least Oct, Nov of 2016, maybe later, but as of Mar 2017 they are gone. i went back to check kerber's matches in Oct 2016 and they were still there. Surely Kvitova's were also there, but wasn't looking for her. so can we never rewatch them again?

meanwhile, tried posting kerber's olympic matches on youtube, and they were all blocked, so thinking if these matches are available, there's no way to watch if you didn't see live.

Re: Random Posts/miscellaneous/anything Petra :)

Tennis without her has been a pity,
especially when she is super hitty,
her opponents throw a fitty,
how we love Ms Kvitty.

Re: Random Posts/miscellaneous/anything Petra :)

So we have seen Kvittypants bravely battle in 5 rounds at the US Open and what have we learned? That she means business when she takes off her handband during a match! So is the handband restricting her tennis brain? Is it stopping the blood flow to her tennis center part of the cerebral cortex? Or is it the constant nail varnish fumes that is affecting her? I think we must investigate!
