Re: Petra lost first set but bageled Varvara in Beijing

Well she won. Second and third set were solid from her.
And support, Petra is really big in China, so many die hard fans And that relief on their faces after the match

Nice pic

She needs just a couple more wins to equal Federer's or Beckham's popularity

Re: Petra broke WTA record as she beat hummingbird Sara in 3

She'll take it.

Should have never went to a third set. But that's Petra.

Errani was annoying. And sometimes Petra appeared she just wanted to "Tee Off", knowing she was always in control of the match. But that Bugger Errani held on, and miraculously eeked it out into a three set match. Good for Petra she played composed, and did what she had to do, when she had to do it.

Hopefully, Petra will have enough in the tank for her next opponent (Lisicki, and/or, especially Li Na)?

We'll see?

Re: Petra broke WTA record as she beat hummingbird Sara in 3

dear lord, i was watching the match, what mess and shitfest

she took 10 years of my life today she couldn't hold against errani 3 DF on BP

mess mess mess, i'm glad that she won, if she didn't i would stop immidiatly cheer on her

GL against chokelina, i'm hoping she can win another one, but before tournament start i said QF is great result, so anything else is just bonus

My favourite pova is Bitchypova

Re: Petra broke WTA record as she beat hummingbird Sara in 3

Her QF against Na could go a number of ways:
- Either she would think that her opponent is the local favourite and being one of her best friends on the tour, so she could tank this match, also to preserve some energy for her next two tournaments and the YEC.
- Or, she'll play there fighting for what she's worth, giving the spectators what they've paid for and getting a revenge from her last match against Na, which was back during the clay season (Stuttgart).
- Or, Her erraticness continues and/or she might get affected by the humidity (which I've never seen a tangible evidence of in the last few days) and this could mean a victory for the Chinese.

Reaching at least the QF at back-to-back matches is really a relatively superb result for Petra so far this year.

Good post. I'm really wondering if their friendship and Li Na being a local girl may have some bearing on how the match will develop. But considering that Petra is not yet 100% qualified for YEC (theoretically), she should try her best to win.

We'll see.

Re: BBB Clįsico madame Li is hosting exhausted Petra

I would like to think, Petra's going to play to win.

She's had a nice day off of rest in between. And though the two may have some nice rallies, the type of Tennis she will play against Li Na, shouldn't be as tiring or annoying (to Petra), as if she played other people. Errani's scampering and drop shots were annoying. And Petra's ability to just blow Errani and her second serve off the court--literally anytime--made Petra impatient and careless. That shouldn't happen with Li Na (or at least, not as often, lol).

So considering the crowd, the opponent, Petra's recent/apparent professional and business like approach, etc.,; I would expect a good match.
