Re: BBB Clásico Petra beat madame Li in 3

Didn't expect this win

Petra does seem to be coming into reasonable-to-good form again, just at the right time.
The best thing is her attitude looks so much better - much more pojding

Well done Petra, on the right end of tough matches... which she should be with her talent.

Keep it up!

she was playing really good,Na was also good, one of the best matches i've watched this season really hard hitting, big serving,.. but petra, dear, thank you

Re: Petra 3 set Empress is playing the real Empress JJ

went to bed right as Li broke Petra to go up 3-1; i honestly thought Petra was gonna lose this match; very pleasantly surprised to find that she won it...what's going on w/ her serve? seems like she just has such a hard time getting the 1st serve in and committing DFs...and she keeps on flubbing easy shots from the bl...she played so well against Venus last week in the SF...but then after that match, her game has been on and off...i think what's keeping her in these matches is really confidence and improved fitness...which is great, but i would like to see her make things easier for herself

there is really no need to go to 3 sets for so many of these matches...

Re: Petra 3 set Empress is playing the real Empress JJ

Dunno why you'd call it a shitfest. Yes, there were errors and double faults, but they were all entirely a function of the power on display. Li and Kvitty both know that the other one can punish poufy second serves, so that explained the DFs. And there's something awe inspiring about watching them punish the ball so severely, even when it means the rally ends on an error because someone couldn't handle the pace anymore. Give me Li-Kvitova any day over Wozniacki or even Jankovic.

I am delighted to see that Petra has evened up two trailing h2H records against Kerber and Li. Her confidence must be through the roof right now. I loved the poise and calm and workmanlike attitude I saw from her in the Li match. She didn't get down on herself; she didn't show any bad body language. Even on DFs or upon losing the first set or going down early in the third, she kept her nose to the grindstone.

I hope she can beat JJ.

"I really have friends on the tour, and I'm really happy for it. ...I remember when I was young and someone told my father that I'm too nice for tennis. So I'm just glad that I can be nice off the court and fighting on the court." — Petra Kvitova, May 8, 2005

P. Kvitova def. S. Williams 6-2, 6-3

Re: Petra 3 set Empress lost to the real Empress JJ in 3

Ahh/sigh, I'll no longer be able to see those beautiful strokes, fantastic running winners, and sublime volleying from Ms. Kvitova (I won't miss staying up from 3am-6am in the early morning though) for the time being.

So Petra lost to JJ...... I guess playing all that tennis finally got to her?

Petra should have won the first set easy. And allowing it to go to a tiebreaker (that she eventually won) may have did it, ultimately did her in.

Petra tanked the second set, then appeared to take charge--early in the third. However, when she got broken back, it appeared to signal the inevitable realization that Ms. Kvitova was running out of gas, and could be dispatched, and was.

I'm not mad or going to knock this performance at all (though I don't like the idea of perpetual Choke Artist/Bridesmaid--JJ--beating Petra, and entering a final against Serena at her expense).

Petra displayed more than enough ability, poise, fight and gumption the past few weeks for me to be impressed with her overall attitude on the court. I don't know what happened/why, but it reminded me of the one she had during 2011. Petra was poised, eerily calm, while so quietly/supremely confident.

Hopefully/now she will get the proper rest, by dropping out of Moscow and/or Linz? And just rest up and be ready for the YEC (which I'm sure she'll make now), and bring the type of tennis there that we've seen in Tokyo and Beijing the past few weeks.

Good Luck Petra!!!

Re: Petra 3 set Empress lost to the real Empress JJ in 3

This loss was a NID to me. Tbh i knew that she ran outta gas at the end. But credit to JJ, she is having a very good week in Beijing. Get some rest Petra.

If JJ is the empress, P3tra is the queen.
