Not being a fan it is easy to say this but I still believe that Petra will be back in the top five and a threat at the slams. She is streaky but when she is "on" her game is very formidable. Petra has all of the pieces but they have just become a bit jumbled up. Once she puts them all back together I think she will be fine. It is a common criticism but we haven't even seen what a fit Petra is capable of. If she gets herself in better shape she could be even better than she was when she nearly rose to number one.
Well, perhaps Petra will be this generation's Davenport. She was also an incredible talent who only reached her full potential after she bothered to get fit. I guess as our resident Kvitty fan Bruce is better placed to comment on this, but it's also possible that a lack of motivation prevents her from actually getting in better shape.
