Yeah, I'm very positive about Stuttgart. It's a good surface for her on paper, and I can totally see her defending Madrid and doing well in Rome as well. Clay is looking exciting as a Petra fan.

Re: 2012 Petra's clay court season

anyone think the Fed Cup SF will be a disaster for Petra to prepare Stuttgart, considering what happened in February?

Re: 2012 Petra's clay court season

At the very least,perhaps leaving the U.S. will give Petra the positive mentality to make a fresh start

Petra will be fresh for both FedCup and Stuttgart, won't be surprised that she plays great.

Eh, if it rains a lot and she plays most of her matches on indoor clay, she'll be unstoppable.

no roof in Rome or RG currently, but from Wikipedia

...a retractable roof will be installed on the Philippe Chatrier court, and the size of the venue will be expanded by 60%

Re: 2012 Petra's clay court season

Anyway, it's not like the lack of roof prevented her from dismantling Vika last year in Madrid F.
