wow, you're really hating on Wozz, give gurl the credit she won the match because she played better not because her opponent was playing poorly. firs of all having aggressive game plan is not equal being ball basher that hits tons of winners. dominating Petra not hard at all these days, she isn't hitting winners on the run like she used to rather hits very short or overhits thus giving Wozz the chance of coming in and taking the ball early. Petra still hasn't learn how to close the net and good scrambler like Wozz can make Petra work harder and make her move and this will open up opportunities for Karolina to finish the point, she was good at it during her peak in 2010-11 when she worked her opponents just to have one slim opportunity to finish the point. Secondly Petra doesn't move as good as she moved in Dubai or during USO swing last year where she was on every ball Wozz returned and worked the ball patiently to hit winners, most of this season she does the opposite lose patience and makes an error or gives huge opportunity for opponent to finish the point. I've been pointing almost all season that she's one step slower to the ball therefore can't properly construct the point and Wozz is the kind of player who thrives on headcases like this, problem for Karolina was that with her attempts to be more aggressive she dropped level of her defense making silly errors that she isn't know for. at this tournament looks like Karolina finally found balance between playing her old wall defense with being aggressive while Petra looks worse and worse
He is known for putting ring on every gurl he dated then ruining them, for now Petra is 'safe'
I was at this match. First set was great, she was in control. Second and third she dropped off, bad serving, made stupid errors, let Caroline come in.
I still think that even new more aggressive Caro is beatable for Petra, when she holds her serve and doesn't give her gifts in the form of DF or 3 deuces in a row that she lost and so on.
But it's kinda better that the problems is in the game, not as much as in the head, because that is much harder to repair or improve.
And this is quite a unique example. Never have I heard that one by one, the two best female players of a country, belonging to the same generation, getting hooked up with the same guy, despite such an age gap. (I don’t think Justine and Kim dated the same guy.
). And that too a fellow who brings such a negative influence on their careers. Why is he allowed to do this? I wonder if there is any debate about it in the Czech Republic. Aren’t there any other male players in the Czech? Why does it have to be him every time? I thought that no female players would get involve with him after seeing Nicole’s downfall!! But as they say truth is stranger than fiction!
Though, I am so glad to know that you too feel the same way and so many others too.
You are right that she has slumped further after getting involved with him. That’s why I was so apprehensive about this relationship and that’s the reason why I kept mentioning it again and again. For Petra’s sake I too hope that it will end soon, but why did it even happen in the first place?
I feel she’ll do well at New Haven though, may well defend her title because none of the big names play there. But you never know with Petra.
As I said, I can understand you anger and I also don't get it.
There are other male players, but there are not good for her either: Berdych - he was smart enough to find a model after he dated Safarova for 11 years and they broke up, Vesely - he is as young as Pavlasek.
I would try to find somewhere else if I were her.
I don't have big expectations for NH,
it would be nice if she played more than two matches there (not including doubles).
I don't like him, I mean, what's that special with him which makes him fatal for tennis players?
It's probably something we can't see
There were some speculations,
I would leave it as that we just don't know.
Well it's not easy, obviously
, but I'm Ana's fan since 2006 and Petra's since 2010 It's nice to have GS champions as your faves, even though they are both brainless
Headcase is the right term I think.
