I had also added to the post you responded to (which could address some of this). You may notice the differences. But I had asked "how could Petra not like English, when she claims she loves England, Australia, and NY is one of her favorite cities? Then I said was, "Petra likes any place where she wins". If she wins in Japan, it will be her new favorite country and tournament.

She can move/vacation anywhere she's comfortable, where it's warm and she can play tennis.

Don't worry. I don't think anyone would ever convince her to change her nationality, unless Csersonek or someone very close to her or someone she highly respected recommended it.

Anyway, my original point was, all top golfers and tennis players live in warm weather climates. And earlier this year, Petra was getting sick while in the Czech Republic during a cold freeze. She also got injured practicing in the Czech Republic Pre-season during a useless match, which impacted the first 1/3 of her season.

If Petra's going to be a true pro, with a true pro team (as so many of us have been suggesting lately), then this would be first start. Where is Petra going to stay during the off season when it's cold. And where is she going to practice her tennis in general?

Where she officially lives or calls home, I know is a whole nother fight/argument. Lol.
I love Montreal but i hate all those frenchies, so she can love city\country but not the language

If Petra's gets pro team or has awesome year we would forget about her training indoors until some wild flop

You crazy Shifty!!

Plus, Petra should be trying to squeeze the best (or that extra 10%) in every area of fitness, tennis training, where she lives, what she eats, etc.

Yes, Montreal is very European. However, if you would consider Montreal, then she might as well spend time in the US.

America has all type of climates for her (with "Frenchies or no Frenchies").

And You're right! We won't care where she stays/vacations, until the next tournament (unless she gets sick or injured again, and then it's hell to pay).

If Berdych, Wozniaki and Djokovic can move to Monaco (the south of France) and function, then Petra can move to a similar French or Italian International resort herself. Hell, she can even move or vacation to some warm, quiet village somewhere in Europe, for all I care.
For Berdych the reason to move to Monaco are taxes, Czech Rep takes big chunk from all earnings
In winter he prepared in Prostejov as well (Wozniacki too, by the way).

I don't think Wozniaki actually showed/played last season, though she was scheduled?

Yes, Berdych and everyone else that's changes their Citizenship to Monaco, the Cayman Islands etc, do it for taxes. But like I said, the overwhelming majority of Tennis players and Golfers live in warm weather climates, regardless of their national status. The list is endless.

It's up to Petra if she wants to change her nationality. I just thought it was crazy she got sick during the middle of the Tennis season last year, when she was scheduled to play in Doha, but went home to the cold ass Czech Republic, then got sick, recovered for weeks.

And No Petra shouldn't train at Indoor Prostojev for the upcoming Outdoor hardcourt season.

Thanks for the input.

W/o a doubt,at least some of you have seen one of those sci-fi or fantasy films where someone from another world...or some caveman who just thawed out...sees a telephone for the first time and tries to put it in his mouth as if it were something to eat....no clue whatsoever wtf it was made for

..........That's sort of what Petra's team reminds me of sometimes;their families were probably the last ones in the village to forsake the horse-and-buggy and try that crazy new invention called the automobile.Just imagine how unstoppable Petra might be if Bernard Pikola and his kinfolk weren't running her career

In one of Queen Petra Fans most recent post, he mentioned an excellent suggestion which may of been overlooked. He said (if I remember correctly), that Petra should move out of the Czech Republic to a warmer climate (which I've always believed). And he also mentioned, she should at least practice in an outdoor facility. I hope I'm not misquoting him.

I happen to concur with both. You ever notice most top golfers and tennis players live in warm weather climates? Very few live in cold weather environments?

Now I don't know if Petra is ready to leave the Czech Republic at this stage (especially since Kotyza lives there). But I agree with QPF, that if she's not going to practice onsite in Asia (when ever she prepares for tennis again), it should be in an outdoor facility, preferably in a warm weather environment. If Petra's serious about making moves in her tennis career, this is something she should consider, especially at the end of 2012/start of the 2012 season.

Prostejov is an indoor facility (I have no idea what the weather is in the Czech Republic today, by the way), even though I remember Petra saying they were supposed to get outdoor courts in the future as well. Obviously Petra had a comfortably on Indoor courts, cause of Prostejov. But because of Petra's tennis immaturity, she didn't open up to Outdoor hardcourts every where equally as well, though her game obviously/easily translated to both.

That's why I was so mad when Petra had gotten that cold/virus earlier this year. I didn't think she should of been in the Czech Republic during a snow storm/the cold in the first place. I'm sure Petra can find away to live somewhere else, while maintaining her Czech citizenship. At worst, she can live/vacation elsewhere when the weather is cold or contains allergens in the Czech Republic.

At this point the only time Petra should be in the Czech Republic, is when she doesn't plan to play tennis and just visit family, relax, etc, when it's warm. Anytime she does wants to play tennis, I think she should practice somewhere else, unless it's warm and outdoors in the Czech Republic (and even that I probably don't agree with), if she can't officially move.

What do you guys think?

Hi Ex,

Just to clarify, what I made an observation on was the fact that all the Grand Slams are played outdoors and that if Petra wants to get serious about winning any of these again she needs to strongly consider training outdoors all year round. To not do this gives an advantage to her stronger opponents who do do it for all the obvious reasons. Let's face it, who cares if she's the Queen of Indoor tennis? It's about winning Grand Slams, that's what matters! She'll never be the best by practicing in a tennis incubator, greenhouse, or terrarium. Go outside Petra! And go somewhere warmer and stay away from winter flus and such. And don't risk your health playing stupid, meaningless exhibitions. The stakes are too large now.

I'm not saying she should change her citizenship, I hope she doesn't, but that's up to her and maybe her tax guy. But we have to admit, she's made enough money already to have her family come visit her wherever she went to advance her career.

I think Team Petra need to start taking a hard look at her future and making some bold choices to help her reach her full potential. Her current program is definitely not going to get her there and she will probably end up like Masha or Kim with about four Grand Slams to her credit in the end which would be a huge waste of her potential. She needs to build up for the day when Serena retires and Masha gets older, and then she will be sitting pretty and ready to capitalize. Of course, it would be even better if she made some changes and started kicking their asses now!!!

That's my two cents.

Time to run to work!

Bruce, you couldn't be further from the truth. The Czech Republic is a very modern country. It was THE most modern in almost all of Europe until it got screwed over by Imperialistic Austria, Nazi Germany and Communist Russia. Even after ALL of THAT it's still a very modern country. Unlike your c.u.n.t.ry, you won't find anybody riding a burro over here Senor Pikola. Suck on that thought for a while before you patronize a group of people you have no clue about. BTW: The picture below was not taken in Fulnek, CZ. Take a wild guess where it WAS taken... Hmmm? Tonto!

Think he was more joking about Petra's colloquial team of lovable misfits QPF, than the Czech Republic itself.

It was still a patronizing comment and he still deserved a kick in the balls.

BTW: Bartoli is becoming my new goddess! Come on Marion!!!!

Never mind! She choked just like Petra.

Watching these Pova matches, it just reminds you how Petra can beat her on hard courts (particularly slow ones).

Petra always gets into these tight, stiff baseline battles (minus her in opportunistic returning and serving) on these slower surfaces lately.

Petra for starters, needs to swing Sharapova side to side (using angles), instead of the north/south baseline game, where SHE makes the errors.

That's how Azarenka kills Sharpova every time. She just pulls Masha side to side, till she makes errors.

Petra has good hands at redirecting as well, and more power than Aza. But she still thinks she's playing at Wimby, where Petra's power can skid by Sharapova.

The US Open could of been an equalizer (supposed to be faster, more windy). But of course Petra never got that far.

Now Bartoli loses/Masha escaped, in a rain delayed close match, and it makes you feel worse, Petra didn't advance.

Well,now I'm convinced that you ARE a swishy bitch...not to mention a complete hypocrite.You preached self-righteously about how terrible something was--even though,as the NON-swishes figured out,I wasn't condemning Czechs at all--and then you blatantly went way over the line yourself.

I'll tell you what,Drag Queen Petra Fan: If you ever bring your pansy ass to L.A. or Texas,just let me know in advance and I'll make plans to meet you so that you can tell me TO MY FACE how worthless Mexicans suppsoedly are instead of hiding safely behind a TF poster name like the bitch that you are.I'd love to see how brave you really are...or,certainly,AREN'T...first-hand.Just don't try to cross the border with any weapons(I'll meet YOU),cuz if you went to one of our jails you wouldn't last 5 minutes w/o getting raped....by only ONE inmate(NO ONE would need to gang up on you).

I'll make sure to not quote your posts anymore OR talk about you,even indirectly,and I suggest that you keep your distance,figuratively,as well,you phony,racist pieza de mierda.I'm done for today,mamador hambriento

I watched Azarenka's match and Sharapova's and I dont think Petra could beat them in her current form, maybe but not for sure. I hope she recovers the form she had last year at Linz, YEC and Fed Cup, for me she was just perfect and sooo confident [sigh]
