Paul,whether or not Petra is injured isn't the only criterion--there are also issues such as stamina and on-court movement.You gave him 3 months,but I feel that the starting point should be when the coach began working with Petra(and NOT the beginning of the 2013 calendar season);wasn't that early or mid-December??

Re: Calamity Kvitty heads to Paris for Mud Digging, Shopping and some Indoor Tennis!

I think her boobs look bigger this year. Her legs aren't as toned. She's not hitting down the line as much, Her serve is not winning as many free points. Her ground strokes are not resulting in as many attackable balls.

I keep going back and watching 2011 matches and asking, "Who is this girl?"

"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

If you really want to see a big difference watch her 2010 Wimbledon SF vs. Serena. That first set is such a great display of Petra attacking tennis.

anyway no issue ILK, my best wishes …

Yes, he/she had a great name, moniker and online personality, that certainly doesn't have to be changed even if your player is struggling. Agreed.

It's funny, sometimes, I don't even realize it's he/she now (though I guess that's the point, besides what ever personal reason they do it for).

It is what it is though.

Hopefully, Petra will be back, and it will be soon.

I will change it back after 3 months. The name needs a rest ... a bit like Petra does ... so I'm hoping that it may help Petra mentally

I only hope that you don't start acting in the Barthel threadsub-forum like you're the "Original Fan" and the arbitrator of what fans express.

Pachuco is an old term that referred to younger Mexican gangmembers who emigrated to the U.S.,wearing flashy clothes to impress people.Down HERE,our youth gangs usually wear nasty,tough-guy clothes on purpose to distinguish themselves as such;they rarely wear the gaudy colorful stuff like negro gang members in the U.S. do......but you should know that good ol' boys often aren't thugs at all,just simple folk.Are you suggesting that there are lots of youth gangs in Petra's region??All the more reason why she should LEAVE for safer environs and avoid kidnappings or extortion......You can answer that at your leisure cuz I'm taking off for my gf's place
