Re: Petra Kvitova Dirty Fighting in Mud: Holy Caravan travels to Cannstatter Wasen F

Saw post-match interviews from both,and Li didn't necessarily look scared,per se,but you could tell from her tone of voice that she expected a very difficult test based on her previous matches with Petra

QF is a respectable result despite terrible play. Hope she peaks for Madrid and RG.

Spot-on comment from tenisportal.cz

Nervy
Když už neměla za stavu 2:5 nic ztratit, tak byla jak válec, potom si MÁ potvrdit servis a sesype se...

Nerves
When she was 2-5 down and had nothing to lose, she was steamrolling. And just when she was expected to hold her serve, she collapsed...


Hopefully better days are ahead.

Re: Petra Kvitova Dirty Fighting in Mud: Holy Caravan travels to Cannstatter Wasen F

QF is a good result - she has defended some of her points. To be honest, she deserves some rest now, having fought that titanic battle against Errani. I mean, it's not a coincidence that Errani and Vinci lost in the early rounds. I haven't seen the match but I think the fresher player won (Li Na hasn't played for a while so she needs this victory more than Petra). As long as Petra can go deep in the next two large tournaments (hopefully she'll win a title in Madrid where she can get a lot of points), she'll have a lot of rhythm coming to the FO. I hope she works on her serve and footwork en route to the clay slam.

Re: Petra Kvitova Dirty Fighting in Mud: Holy Caravan travels to Cannstatter Wasen F

In most sports that have rankings,you won't find many cases where a Top 10 player or team is considered as 'underachieving' but,in Petra's case,lots of folks would agree with that label.It's a reflection of how much talent and potential she really has

Re: Petra Kvitova Dirty Fighting in Mud: Holy Caravan travels to Cannstatter Wasen F

Either way is fine with me,but are we sticking here for Madrid,Rome,RG or are we starting up something new?Will be interested to see how Petra does now that Madrid won't be a blue freak show anymore,apparently

Re: Petra Kvitova Dirty Fighting in Mud: Display of Art and Magic in La Caja Mágica

Does anyone know when Petra plans on arriving?From what I've read,MD play starts on Saturday so she won't have quite as much freetime as she would before other Premiers

Re: Petra Kvitova Dirty Fighting in Mud: Display of Art and Magic in La Caja Mágica

A couple posters accused Petra of lacking intensity vs a friend last year at Madrid.While we can only guess as to what her mindset was then,I'd like to see if Petra can approach her 2011 Madrid form now that the old surface--or at least close to it--has been restored

draw ceremony usually not televised outside of some slams, so don't expect much outside of live tweets\photos and maybe short video from tournament after, also expect shit coverage as usual, in Czech it will be Nova Sport and they do love ATP action

Shame, but usually I don't count on Nova sport (which is not free channel), I rather watch streams on internet in English. I watch only fed cup in Czech TV. Only time I did was last year when the Czech TV provided coverage from the French Open because of Petra winning Wimby last year but I don't expect something like that this year.
