Re: Petra barbecuing in Melbourne Park

AO R1 Petra vs Schiavone, this would be shitfest

Possible QF Serena vs Petra

Re: Petra barbecuing in Melbourne Park

Based on the level she displayed the past few weeks, Petra needs to work it and tough it out. Wow, hard draw for her, beginning from her first round against Fran. Second round, possibly against Robson. As I said, a possible difficult contender is looming in the 3rd - this time it's Sloane, another fit and overall good player. Fourth round between Safarova/Petrova. QF against Serena. All I can say is: hope the tennis gods give some luck to Petra.

Hmmmmmmmmmmh. Even if she got by Schiavone, and made it as far as the quarterfinal to face Serena (if she was there), that's tough.

Then again, when you fall out of the top 4, this is what happens to you.

Petra has had poor luck with the draws at the Australian Open recently. And if she loses to Serena (even if Petra plays well), it may even sap more of her confidence, as she continues to drop in the rankings (remember Petra made the semi's here last year).

Hopefully, if Petra got that far, Serena wouldn't be there, or an inspired Petra (with nothing to lose), would beat her anyway.

And if Petra gets knocked in the third or 4th rd (regardless who she faces), and all this talk is useless: Well you know how we would feel.

We'll see?

Re: Petra barbecuing in Melbourne Park

I think 1r vs Fran is perfect it will give her great boost of confidence, Flopson is only dangerous when overlooked, Sloane can push Petra but any decent player can beat her, so not really a bad draw for our girl before Lucie\Rena
