Only if she performs badly or equally to Kirby at YEC, otherwise she is back to Top5, saddest part even with another YEC win Petra couldn't pass Aga for Top4 spot for better draw at AO i.e she probably end up getting played against Masha or Rena in QF or even sooner

Thanks to you and ShiftyFella for the input;however,Petra couldn't meet a Top 4 player PRIOR TO the QFs unless she dropped out of the Top 8. IMO,facing a tough opponent in the QFs is nothing to whine about;ideally,the women's ranks SHOULD be that tough if the sport seeks to be healthy and competitive.As much credit as Serena deserves,it's not good if she doesn't even get slightly pushed by the other high-ranked players(though,to be fair,she avoids slow red clay as much as possible to keep from looking so mortal),and there'll be more fan interest if there's at least some level of suspense....though we don't always enjoy Petra's version of suspense that results from uneven play

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

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

And Petra has got most of her big tournament wins (up to & including Wimbledon from a lower rank anyway.

Once she made top 4 the results went off, and when she dropped out of the top 4 again she won Montreal & New Haven

When she's playing well it doesn't matter what her rank is.

My premises was more about if she has chance to achieve better result without braking a sweat, why not try to do it? look at Pova, she's always around the top not because she is great talented player like Rena or grinder of tournaments points whenever is possible like Aga, she's just done what she needs to do and steps up where need it, no more no less, basically she tries not to overlay herself and capitalizes on favorable draw. Of course Petra could beat Pova in QF, Vika in SF and Rena in the final if she is fully on and this would be confirmation of her magnificence but why try to make hard on yourself?

also, if Petra could be more careful with her health results in Beijing would be totally different, heck even in this season if she wouldn't got ill before it. ES commentators laughing at Vika with her catsuit outfits and withdrawals form some tournaments but Vika is smart because she avoids 0 pointers, better looks for her health and creates more balanced schedule, why Petra can't do similar stuff but without turning into part-time GOAT like Rena?

Your points are very practical,but I suppose that my approach stems mostly from the attitude of not backing down from tough opponents.I'd like to see Petra at least reach the point where she doesn't look at the draw and,with trembling,fear facing certain players....She probably doesn't do that very much,yet a truly elite player shouldn't do it AT ALL

Re: Petra Kvitova's YEC 2012

This is definitely best cast scenario for Petra. Good group draw for her. Looking forward to see what improvements were made back in CR.

Re: Petra Kvitova's YEC 2012

The draw gods were very generous to Petra. I still stand by my prediction she'll reach the semis.

Errani

Me too, Petra and Maria are the best players in the group. !

Although, secretly I was hoping Sara would qualify to annoy everybody. But that definitely won't happen!
