The "Stepanek Era" and PK's game

Overall do you think her level was better before or now?

Caveat. This is not about Stepanek being responsible for any of it.

Her mind is betraying her, she cannot stay concentrated whole match.
She was allways like that, but is getting worse since 01/2012.
Serena, Maria and Vika (almost) never let opponent back into match like her.

Re: The "Stepanek Era" and PK's game

Before Stepanek she was an inept, of course things can get worse with that fugly around but its hard to tell (however his Florida training idea have been a complete failure so far), to me she is the same Petra, hot and cold, who knows in what time of the season she is gonna pick and than flop again...

Then why have you named it "the Stepanek era"?

Re: The "Stepanek Era" and PK's game

He hasn't helped. Put it to you that way. However, I have said that, to me, the match that turned Petra's career around was the loss to Maria at the 2012 AO. She's never been the same.
