Petra

But if the earth ends in fire
And the seas are frozen in time
There'll be just one survivor
The memory that I was yours
And you were mine

*grabs popcorn & waits for the same lame joke the posters make on Petra regarding her obsession with kids*

Good on her but isn't this more appropriate for her sub-forum? Many players and other athletes do this sort of thing.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.

Re: Petra Kvitova visited ill childrens in polish hospital

I just wonder if these families want a bunch of photographers around while they're dealing with all this. It's great that athletes do this sort of thing, but I wish it could be done in private instead of being a photo op.

Who cares what people say? You can never make everyone happy. I'm thinking more of the privacy of the families, that's all. If the patients/families want to take pics with the celebrities and post them, it's their prerogative. But when you bring in the photographers, it's more of an intrusion into their already stress-filled lives.

I'm just always bothered by these photo ops...they should do this work in private. Trust me; word will get out anyway and their reputation will be positively affected without exploiting the afflicted.
