State of Petra's Game after Tokyo?
So, do you think we can expect more mediocrity later? Or will she finally turn the corner and get back on track to dominate and challenge Serena and Pova?
The serve: how is it? Fixed or not? Is she starting points with a big advantage because of it, or is it just mediocre?
I saw some really nice forehands in Tokyo. Good volleys, too.
Petra is a bigger girl than when she won Wimbledon. I don't mean fatter. Her arms are more muscled, and though she's not carrying any higher % of fat, I think she has added muscle. She seemed to be moving pretty well.
It would be great to see her make the YEC the beginning of a streak of serious contention for big titles.
"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
