I'm not saying that at all.
I'm just telling you how bad Petra and Flipkens are now.
But if you're asking, if Petra played Venus, could Venus beat her? Yes I do. Especially, when you consider the mental aspect (Venus being a Multi-Grand Slam All time great), and the power and serve Venus continues to possess.
I think you doesn't have to say how bad Petra is, everyone knows!
And I think that Venus could beat Petra that day when she was beaten by Flipper or Halep, every solid player could.
To me the point is that, with a high probability, Petra would have destroyed Flipkens at Wimbledon if she had played like in 2011. Now she struggles to stay in Top10.
Win/Loss stats before US Open
Why do you even compare those two seasons?
You don't have to see the win-loss record to see that Petra is having horrible season and that's why she plays like that.
And Petra would destroyed almost anybody if she played like in 2011, what is the point of saying that?
Besides what Palkov, and I said earlier.
Put it this way: The Petra that lost to Halep on Saturday, would have gotten killed by the Venus of today, who just murdered the same Flipkens, who beat Petra at Wimbledon.
Actually you can't say today's Venus would kill Petra because Petra's matches largely depend on how Petra plays, not her opponent.
I think you really should look at last match of Venus against Flipper.
Venus bageled Flipper in the 1st set and then broken down by Petra-style and got beaten 6-4 6-2, I've watched that match.
Again, I see no point in constant repeating of how Petra is bad, how Flipper or Venus would beat her and so on.
