It's not all equally bad though. I always expect Kvitty to do better in the US Open series than in Miami

Althougha few of the summer hardcourts may also be just as sticky humid as Florida (like for e.g. Stanford).

This sounds like one of the Kvitty fans I know from the Czech Republic....

Touché!

And the worst news is that Starbucks and Costa Coffee are expanding both in and outside Prague and the California-based Coffee Bean has just opened their first shop in Germany (Cologne) and is just about to enter the Czech market

Not to mention Gloria Jean's Coffee of Australia, which is planning to come back, and the ever-expanding local Starbucks copy called CrossCafe

I don't know if Petra is into coffee, but her nearest Starbucks is in Ostrava so she may drop in for a latté on her way to Katowice to recharge her batteries before storming to the title

Re: Petra Kvitová Live Scores Thread vol2

^ What's with you and coffee?

And while you're at it, how about some love for authentic European coffee outlets like Douwe Egberts, Illy and Segafredo? That's where you find class (they don't like plastic cups and their sugar is real - not that Yankee high fructose corn syrup thing).

If you ever get fat you know who's to blame. Speaking of which, I desperately hope Petra doesn't set foot inside that Ostrava outlet you mentioned. The last thing we need is MichelinKvitty.

I like both authentic outlets and the chains. Depends on location, mood and what you want to do there (talking, reading, working?). If you wanna do some work on a laptop, Starbucks or Costa is a good option, cause you just order your drink and they will then leave you alone instead of disturbing you every five minutes 'Do you want some more?'

Douwe Egberts, Illy and Segafredo are well known of course, Tchibo is also very popular here (they're German I think).

What I noticed however is that US-style coffee chains are usually packed with young people with laptops and tablets, while those traditional European outlets are more preferred by 40+ people. But maybe in Holland it's different?

BTW, Starbucks is basically a copy of the Italian coffee tradition adjusted to the US fast-food culture.

If Petra is really into coffee she will be smart women to avoid Starbucks, they only waste product, tho places like SB are good for reason you mention above but not when you want to enjoy coffee, she would be better off with small authentic turkish vibe places

For Tha Emprah!

This is how MichelinKvitty would look amongst her Czech hottie peers if she followed Petronius's advice and frequented the Ostrava Starbuks ... we know who to blame now for all of Kvitty's lack of fitness/agility

This will be an extremely laborious victory, if Petra makes it.
