She claimed she had asthma problems in Brisbane, after she lost to Pav's.
She alluded, that she had mental problems in Sydney (not asthma), after she lost to Pome.
Some one posted a quote from her, in an article where she claimed it was her serve that failed her and not any asthma in Melbourne (though the way she was serving, it appeared that way to me).
Of course Petra didn't mention (or at least I didn't see the quote), her brain that failed her in Melbourne as well.
And you are correct. It's normally humidity, pollution or heavy pollen, that would trigger her asthma. It was very hot yesterday, but I didn't hear anything about humidity.
As you know, Petra always says it's those things, not the heat that affects her. Of course, any big heat, would make it worse, if the climate were humid or irritating.
