Hope you're wrong;they're certainly not identical in personality as Petra isn't the sort who blames everyone else for her self-inflicted problems and then throws her team members under the bus.

....But you're correct that there ARE similarities in other respects: Blaming symptoms instead of finding the root causes of problems...fear of leaving what are actually self-destructive comfort zones...and an unwillingness to honestly deal with and solve mental breakdowns in matches(sigh....)

When the Lizards play their Trump card, humanity suffers

Monica Puig, guapa campeona de tenistas latinas

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world
