Re: Petra versus Koala in Brisbane

Thanks Meelis.

Tough quarter for Petra if she's rusty or not 100%.

I'm not sure (especially the way she's been complaining about her asthma, and if that proves true), if she'll even make it out the quarter.

And of course, she has Sharapova waiting for her in the semi's, if she gets out of her own relatively easy quarter.

We'll see?

Re: Petra versus Koala in Brisbane

I like it. A chance for revenge x3. (L-Hrad, Carebear, and Pova).

Let's roll, Petra!

"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005

P. Kvitova def. S. Williams 6-2, 6-3

Re: Petra versus Koala in Brisbane

Hi folks, new fan here! She could get revenge on her first opponent too - CSN. She lost to CSN in Beijing a few months ago. Hope an inspired Kvitty shows up!

I wouldn't hold out hope on Sharapova or Serena in Australia this time round, if Petra meets either of them I'm sure she'll beat both of them.

Re: Petra versus Carla in Brisbane

Pavs vs Petra would be fun battle of heavyweights to watch tho i don't believe at least one of them would make it to meet the other

Not sure at which precise moment you changed the title,but the koala bear would've been a much less challenging opponent on the tennis court....and also a much less frightening acquaintance without any makeup on

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

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

I love Petra's demeanor. It's so cool, calm, and collected.

Re: Petra beat Carla in Brisbane

Yay Petra!



Tense at the end there and I think she was trying way too hard on the cross court points, but I thought it was good overall

15 net points
