upd

there nothing to read, just few quotes from Petra, Aga, HuggyBear and small report about Serena's performance
Maybe Petra should steal Aga's coach?

Cause obviously, by Kotyza's/Petra's actions, results and words, Aga's coach, believes in Petra more than he does (I don't believe that, just silly trolling).

But then again, who knows?

Re: Petra Kvitova's YEC 2012

At least having low expectations means that I'm not exactly surprised about this...



This is a bad way to start off. It also doesn't give me a lot of hope vs. Maria. The only match I think she'll win is Errani, but she might choke that and go 0-3. ()

(Also, if pretty much any other player made those excuses, I would probably be pissed at them for not playing up to their potential. Instead, I'm just like )

If you don't feel she's going to beat Errani, why would you be upset about her losing to Sharapova (unless you hate her--Sharapova)?

Re: Petra Kvitova's YEC 2012

Okay,this probably isn't the best time for negativity,but 41 UEs in 17 games works out to slightly over 2.4 UEs....PER GAME!!!Perhaps Vikapower could give us some stats on this,but my guess is that an average of THREE UEs per game is almost unattainable for pros....sort of like imitating Rafa to the extreme by sticking your hand deep up in your ass WHILE you're playing and trying to strike the ball simultaneously with the free arm.Barring that,the punching bag players who NEVER make it thru qualies probably average around 2.7 or 2.75 UEs per game once in a while which,by my speculation,means that 2.5 is likely rock bottom for any Top 100 WTA player...and Petra almost reached that "achievement".....To echo some earlier wishes,I'd like Navrat to be 'gently assertive' in suggesting to Petra that she could use some help with her mental prep and a few other areas

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Don't be scared to open the door, Serena. It's not the Land Shark, it's only the doping agency

Re: Petra Kvitova's YEC 2012

Defending champ @Petra_Kvitova withdraws from #WTAChamps due to viral illness. Will be replaced in the White group by Sam Stosur.

fucking sickness and injuries butchered whole year
this explains her defeat(s) a lot, she is too classy/proud/st*pid? to withdraw/retire

Re: Petra Kvitova's YEC 2012

Well actually such a news should make me sad. But I feel better now. She wasn't looking good during yesterday's match. It looked as if she was in some kind of agony, so it's better for her to go home, rest and be ready for the fed cup final.

IMO this puts paid to the notion of Kvitova as being any more noble than other top players. She ain't sick! She's playing like crap, can't see how to change that and withdrew to save herself more embarrassment. Sad to see such a stellar talent reach this level.
