Re: Petra lost to Nastya / Sydney next

I guess no more articles from Brisbane


btw, read quotes from her interview. it's great that she recognizes it's just first tournament of the year but in a way i think Petra just delusional

Re: Petra lost to Nastya / Sydney next

'Delusional' might be just a little too strong;we can say that Petra's in denial or failing to deal candidly with an unpleasant reality...and that doesn't sound quite as bad...and is a lot normaller.When she goes on a 5-match losing streak and then claims that she's playing pretty well,THEN we can throw around the 'delusional' label more freely.Honestly,though,I think that today's generation of WTA'ers have gotten accustomed to spewing B.S. at pressers with the intent of preserving their public images.They're a little like politicians in that respect.......When you think about it,you very rarely see a pol admit that he/she made an extremely stupid mistake;there's always some justifier to rationalize why they f--ked up or some doubletalk to suggest that the screw-up wasn't so bad.Likewise,you don't catch many tenistas with pressers like,"I embarrassed the fans,my family,the sport and even myself with today's crappy performance,and I apologize for laying such a turd on the court."

We need more post-match pressers like THIS one:

Re: Petra singing Opera in Sydney

Am inclined to nominate Paul as Tourney Thread Namer for the rest of this season...even though he's too much of a humble guy to seek such a position....and even though he stuck up for Petra's trainer by refusing to tell me how you say 'bedwetter' in Czech

Re: Petra singing Opera in Sydney

what a cute title

if Petra ever, plays Seoul, would that be "Petra dancing Gangnam Style"?

Re: Petra singing Opera in Sydney

Well, considering that Petra is reportedly in a huge slump, her fan base in this subforum is actually getting more and more varied.

Czech Republic (paulmara)
Slovakia (Lufa)
USA (Excelsior)
Mexico (bruce goose)
Ukraine (ShiftyFella)
England (I.Luv.Kvitty)
Wales (pling)
Switzerland (ReboundAce)
Canada (TennisKvitova)
Israel (Israel)
India (bharatkt)
HongKong (Xepher)
Costa Rica (steni)
Australia (aloeball)
Poland (aselto)
Russia (Holdsworth)
Croatia (JarkaFish)
Estonia (Meelis)
France (Vikapower)
The Netherlands (hypersonic)
New Zealand (HowardH)
Bulgaria (iva_ds87)
Belgium (ChrissieFan)
China (b2b)
etc.

Could you imagine what will happen if she starts playing well again?

No worries here. Petra wants to be the next Hana: three FedCups in a row is a given

Almost perfect semi-final, final set up for Petra Meelis (said with all due respect, while knocking on massive wooden tennis racket), while aware of the Kerbers, Georges's, Kirilenko's, Makarova's, etc. I hope she can go far in this?

Good Luck Petra!!

Thanks Meelis.

What does that mean?Are you looking for Petra to face someone who's highly prone to 'injury' defaults,from medical emergencies such as chapped lips,so that she can pick up an easy victory??
