anyone able to give better translation?
Yeah, Petra wasn't using punctuation in that tweet. I actually joked about that on her facebook in comments.
What she was actually saying was: "I really look forward to the final! It'll be fight against Roberta tomorrow! I should prepare for plenty of backspins."

So to be more clear for you, there are two mistakes from Petra:
"bojs" should be written as two words "boj s" which means "fight with" or "fight against"
"cop" should be written as "čop" which means "backspin" or "slice" which Roberta like to use very much instead of normal backhands.

I thought she might have been talking about Bob's slice.

Thanks very much guys

Very good week for Petra. Something was telling me that Petra couldn't beat Vinci two times in a row on clay so I'm kind of glad that she'll have even bigger motivation to get at least one win - and the more important one - next week

Yeah but this time it will be outdoor clay . That's not a great combination for her. She'll have to play well, hopefuly she'll show her usual fed cup form .

A good week? Maybe I keep my expectations too high. And the "more important win"? Well . .I guess like her you see Fed Cup as more important than her personal career. To me it was an okay week but her play in that last set was yuck.

You must remember that this is just a wta international tournament and that Petra played it only because she wanted to prepare for the Fed Cup weekend on clay. I'd much more satisfied if she won in Stuttgart, Madrid, Rome or Rolland Garros.

You haven't read the most recent Czech interview posted in the news section, which I understand. She was ill before the tournament (like thousands of other people in the country because of extremely long winter) and trained only one hour per day without moving, i.e. she was just hitting the ball from one spot. She's satisifed with the result. She took this MM event as a practice session for the FedCup semi and the upcoming bigger clay tournaments.

And yeah, smaller countries tend to value FedCup more than the US, Russia, etc.
