You're not in Kansas anymore New coach has his own methods and she doesn't have to go to mountains, it's not like she's in Rocky movie

Good thing you didn't read Petra's comment about going for the title Actually, it's kinda big event, on women's side there would be a lot of famous players outside of Czech gang

Problem that this is not a exho, extraliga treated like a serious event but Petra around that time not really psychically ready to play 100% tennis, last year she pushed herself beyond what should be during preparations before tennis seasons and basically screwed her whole 2012 season because of that. If she stays in bounds not pushing herself too far, i guess everything would be ok. Winning title could be one more confidence push to play good in 2013 but Petra should put her health first by avoiding last year mistake
