Serena Lost!!!!!!!!!!

PS: Please don't try talking any sense into me, about the probabilities of Serena not getting hurt playing Petra, etc. LOL
How about something more realistic like: Even if Petra had squeaked thru to the 3rd round(a very do-able task),she almost surely would've lost to Sloane...who's fleeter of foot,much hungrier...and is playing much better overall tennis than Petra currently is.To me,early-round losses are preferable than lucking into a deeper round cuz they force the player and her team(...MOST teams,that is)to look for both long- and short-term solutions

Yes. And you know what? Other players being out of the tournament isn't going to help Petra because she's proven she can lose to anyone.

She has to get through tournaments herself, without the help of other peoples' injuries and WD and not having to face top 10-ers.

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

Paris' line-up is actually a blessing in disguise (if Petra plays well) so she would notice that nowadays, a victory isn't a walk-on-the-beach event anymore, she has to work hard for those wins and deserve them (as netphobia said) - and not getting 'lucky' draws. True inner confidence comes from toughing it out, how harsh it might sound (I still remember her match against Safina in '09 US Open) and not through a 'false' feeling that she has won from a subpar opponent (either through injury or low ranking).

:hatoff:Well folks, the Kvitty ‘Circus’ Caravan pulls in to Paris for an ‘indoors’ stopover on it’s way to the ‘Arabian Desert’ so the Donkeys pulling this caravan can get fed & watered from the long jouney from 'down under'.. (just for laughs I’ll leave it up to your imaginations as to who these Donkeys are…) but pulling the reigns are Uncles Kotyza, Cernosek at the front of the caravan, at the back of the caravan playing the banjo and singing along are Peter, Kristian Bajza, Michal Safar and Aunty Katie Spellman and of course our lovable Kvitty….

Here’s hoping there will be lots of mud digging!! - and our dear Kvitty will no doubt scamp away to Galeries Lafayette and Champs-Elysees avenue to get away from it all….

Enjoy the drama!!.....
Nice! Hahahaha

The only thing is: I DON'T think Sloane would have played as well against anyone else yesterday. We'll see how she does against Azarenka (Sloane will probably get dismissed).

I just think she had her reasons to beat Serena yesterday (Serena injuries, mental issue; Sloane revenge from Serena "Disrespect", stepping up, no pressure, etc.).

And of course, I was speaking about if Petra was playing better to beat Robson. Petra played like shit in various facets. But who knows what would have happened if she played Sloane (who wasn't great against Robson herself, though she straight setted her).

Nonetheless, let's hope Petra and her team make drastic changes, work harder and pay much more attention to detail as a result of her latest embarrassing loss.

Unfortunately (like you), I'm not so sure if it's going to make a big difference. I think it's still all on Petra, "Catching Lightening In A Bottle" again at Paris Indoors.

That appears to be their plan (that and to send her back to the currently useless Psychologist/Mentalist). How about more practice, working on her Tennis Game!?

PS: I wonder/I hope, a very disappointed Petra's team has taken all this free time to practice hard and hire a Male Hitting Partner (I doubt it) for tough simulation games, properly preparing her for Paris??

If Petra's team wants to pick up some cues on how to be more competitive against Serena, they should just watch this match.

You just can't sit there and ball bash with Serena. You got to use some variety, with your defensive slices, defensive ROS stabs, use of top spin, drop shots and angles, as well as coming to the net every opportunity you get. This is essentially Petra's YEC game, that would work well against anybody (especially the Azarenka's and Sharapova's that like steady pace). Young Sloane Stevens is employing all of this in a Mexican Standoff (sorry Bruce), even after Serena's pain killer kicked in for her tweaked back. Win or lose. She displayed the tools (at least in this match).

Somehow (at least for the time being), I don't see it making a difference with them. When will we ever see our Wonderful All Court Tennis Playing Petra again?
What??? Serena got hurt, her level drop and her serve, she wasnt even moving, while this mug was just hanging in there, Stephens is lucky, now Azarenka is gonna kick her butt...

answers most welcome....free tubs of ice cream with all answers...
Hmmm, for me dating is so exciting in the beginning and things are great, so I guess everything around you is awesome and you are motivated and happy. Petra probably loves her bf but like I.Luv.Kvitty said they have been dating for a while so the excitement is not the same, but who knows how they feel about each other maybe she still feels the butterflies everytime she sees Adam.

Petra's issues arent about love I think. Its her confidence and more...

It would've been a fantastic SF match if Petra plays Vika!

At the moment Petra is 2nd for both aces and double faults in Melbourne, despite playing only two matches

A bit lucky with the aces really - largely thanks to Robson's slow reaction time

That's because somehow she hit 18 aces and 18 dfs in one match

Those of you who have twitter accounts please forward these links to Kvitty's & Spellman's Twitter accounts so Kvitty will at least know that MN is offering to help - I really don't trust that 'cabal management team' to pass this on to her beacuse it is not in their interest to have MN come-in & shake things-up...Once news hits Spellman then it could be taken up by the mainstream press & Petra will have to respond to MN in someway I feel....it would be rude of her not to...

!!This is the best news I have had all year re: Kvitty....
