I know, right?
And when you watch someone like Petrova (and others similar to her with past or recent success/high rankings) get knocked in the first round, it just reminds you where Petra can be, if she doesn't watch it. And imagine how bad it will be then?
It's clear that to be at top player--who's consistent, it takes strong focus and excellent preparation. Say what we want, make what ever excuses we want, but that's what it is and takes to be continually excellent. It's a drive, a work ethic, and a attention to detail, that you and your team/extended team must have.
I just hope Petra or her team (who ever they could be in the future, if changes are ever made), wakes up soon enough, so she can still have enough time to fulfill her vast potential if/when she does. However, right now (regardless of her results this week), things are just run very sloppily. That's just the honest reality of it.
The way I see it, Petra has 3mos to 3 years (short term vs long term view) to get it together. Maybe less (on the three year part). And of course, the process of ascent or decline, can start anytime within that 3 month to 3 yr period.
