Re: Petra Kvitova's YEC 2012 (1 match and a withdrawal)

Really sad about the WD

Really wanted her to finish the year with a few good wins here in Istanbul and FC. Just was able to see the last bit of the match against Aga. Would have been nice to get her revenge for that loss and play well against Errani/Sharapova.

I'm from USSR so i don't believe in psychologist and stuff they do, bitch slapping and vodka with first hobo you meet sorts everything out perfectly


btw, you should read the article, it's great and without typical vague nonsense that usually exist in her interviews

I used Google Translate on the article. But it was enough to get the gist of it. Like some posters here said, the SF loss to Maria in Australia (as well as Kirilenko) affected her a lot.

I'm sick today too (fever/sore throat/lightheaded/super fun things such as that) so at the moment I feel a lot of sympathy

Absolutely hilarious, and I can sure dig it (agree/see).

OK. I'll look at the interview/article when I can.

I kinda been staying away from them, cause I don't know what to believe lately (cause the news, reasons and changes are happening so fast).

I was kinda waiting for things to settle down first (on all our parts, including Petra and her team).

I don't think she should play the exo with Maria. Maybe not even Fed Cup. She needs to rest/recover and playing exos and tournaments isn't a good idea when you're coming back from illness.

GET THAT POSTER BANNED FROM HERE!!!!!!!
If genuine fandom is any guide,I have more right to be here than you. You seem to think being a fan means being non-critical of everything PK does and you're more interested in bashing other players than in seeing her play up to her potential. IOW as a supposed fan . you suck.

Except there's a difference between criticism and being a jerk about it.

You make good posts sometimes, but other times I can't help but wonder "wow are you actually a fan or..."

I agree but how was I being a jerk? I saw that she'd withdrawn, was pissed and posted about it. I'm very disappointed in PK's season and no I'm not going to make excuses for her or be all nice about it. IMO she needs to get herself together before all that talent goes to waste. I'm a fan not her Mom. I want to see her dominate the tour not cuddle her.

Fair enough, but I don't see how you can put every single loss as 100% her fault due to lack of effort or whatever. She has been injured/ill a good portion of the season.

Agreed. But I support her even when she loses. Her losses don't bother me. What does bother me are the extended periods of not playing her game, of seeming unfocused, of not bringing it like she can. I'm far from the only one on here saying these things. In fact I see many posting things that are similar to what I was posting months ago, even if they use "nicer" language. And if I'm incorrect and the main thing that's off has been her illness then I'll be glad, take my lumps and apologize for being so incorrect.

Re: Petra Kvitova's YEC 2012 (1 match and a withdrawal)

Will assume that Petra was merely being whimsical when she suggested that Stosur could 'win some matches for her'.I refuse to believe that Petra is so dizzy as to think that a YEC alternate would ever have any such motivation.If so,then she'll be sorely disappointed by today's 3rd-set bagel,but at least S.S. tried to honor Petra by nearly mimicking her UE count

PARTY IN THE PANIC ROOM! Serena wins an undoubtedly clean #22

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

Can't wait for 2013 season to start, a season Petra will resurrect and rise to top 2 ranking from No. 8.

I hope Petra will resurrect as early as November 3 and 4 to win the 7th FedCup trophy for CZ so that we can finally catch up with the Aussies in all-time rankings

Yes, let's do this Petra.
