Re: Petra Quotes
Petra was on a tear in the interviews during her run to the Dubai title. Most of her best lines were unintentionally shade-throwing, and mostly about defensive players, especially Caroline Wozniacki.
"We are different players. She tries to put the balls back, and I'm the person who is playing aggressively and going for the winners. So what happens in the match really depends on if I'm missing a lot or no."
Also the threat in the interview after the match against Aga, and before Caro: "I am a player who is going for the winners, so I have to accept the unforced errors, too,'' she said. ''I shoot bullets on the court next time.''
And finally, in the on-court interview after the Radwanska match, Petra tried to praise Caro, but inadvertently chose a verb laden with more truth than she knew: "It's tough because, I mean, she hits every ball and pushes it back to me."
"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
