2015 Roland Garros - P3tra got bageled and lost to Bacsinszky in the 4th round

Hi, guys.

After some time, it's my turn to drive the Kvitty ferrari again. Thanks to knoxy, he's done a good job.

Feel free to correct me or advise me, if you want.

If Petra's playing well, I don't see any of those opponents as being particularly troubling. If she's not- Svitolina may be a tough 2nd round ask. I'm interested to see if Muguruza can make it to the QF with that section.

Petra is the first of the evening matches on Centre Court, not before 7pm local time (3pm GMT).

12noon Radwanska vs Garcia
then Lisicki vs Ivanovic
then Wozniacki vs Stosur
NB 7pm Kvitova vs Svitolina
then Halep vs Hantuchova

Re: 2015 Dubai Duty Free - Petra woke up after the 1st set and defeated Svitolina in

Congrats to Petra, fist win after a month.

I thought she's going to lose but she realized where she is and what she has to do in the 2nd set and then played good effective tennis to win it in 3.

I hope she'll avoid this kind of mess in the next match.

Carla .S.Navarro can be a nightmare if she doesn't play well.And to boot, Petra lost to her in the same round, in the same tournament last year

Re: 2015 Dubai Duty Free - Petra woke up after the 1st set and defeated Svitolina in

Only if Petra could recover like this in a major!?

If it was the Aussie, or US Open, she may have lost?

Gotta be a mental thing. And this should answer the question of Synth, Tennisaddict 84 (and maybe even The Juju), regarding Petra's ability to make a come back after losing/not playing the first set well. She can, and does. It's just not in the majors much the past several years.

Nonetheless, Petra settled down and focused a bit better (while playing the key points better as well) in the second and third set, and we saw the results.

Let's hope she can improve on this match/last two sets even more?

Svitolina, had nothing that could hurt Petra. So all she had to do was play good tennis, while not letting her opponents personality, and occasional "Get (of a shot)" disapoint her, or get underneath her skin. That's the type of player Svitolina is. She's tries to get underneath your skin and irritate you.

You can say the same for the next opponent (minus the histrionics), Suarez Navarro.

Let's just hope this match made Petra better prepared?

I think she lost to her in the 2nd round last year. Anyway, this is a revenge tournament for Petra so far.

Petra bumped down to court one tomorrow - maybe they were making the schedule when she was losing

12noon Zarina vs Kate
then Flavia vs Angie
then Petra vs Carla

Slow court ? No.Faster than any other hard court apparently
Night match ? No. Late afternoon.Perfect time.
Humid ? Not that much to bother
Injury ? No
Tired ? Just second match in a month.
Opponent Goating ? Not at all. Infact struggled to serve it out.

I am struggling to find one reason for this performance . What could it be? I am looking at you Kotyza. SMH
