Re: Petra shot down by Laura in Melbourne

It's not just been 1, 2 or even 3 people, or me . It's been many; some we don't even see post here often (both here in the subforum and even on GM).

I don't want to take it any further than that. But I just wanted to point out, it's not only about Petra's losses or results. It's everything thing surrounding her (both what she and her team says and does, and what we don't see or hear from them as well).

If Petra played poorly in Paris, then got better, and hot and won the tournament. After, Petra gained enough confidence to win the French or Wimbledon and have a good year. It wouldn't be anything her team did. It would just be Petra playing up to her level, based off of confidence. However, what Petra and her team have failed at so far is: They have not had her physically, mentally, strategic, tennis wise and goal setting wise, prepared for the daily, month to month grind and challenge of the tour, as well as living up to her ranking. And that's a fact, regardless of any past.

And if Petra's the REAL ISSUE (I can see you saying that), then THEY should come out and say that, and/or leave (like most top coaches do)!? But they won't! Cause neither Koytza or Cernosek, act like there's anything terribly wrong with Petra at the moment. And Kotyza himself, declared that he shouldn't be let go, and should be able hang around for a while. SMH/LOL. You can't make this stuff up.

My polite two cents and observation.
My only answer to Petronius' Retard QUASI-logic is this: Someone spends his money to construct building facilities...then some players attend those facilities and find,naturally,that indisputably proves that said businessman is an indisputable expert on ALL aspects of personally planning a player's career--Plato would NOT be impressed by such 'logic'.What Petronius failed to recognize--while in his deductive coma that's a staple of humanist education--is that even some CZECHS like Navrat and Slozil are saying 'WTF' about how Petra's team does things.

I'm not gonna waste my time with any more of that pathetic,weak,blindly-pro-Czech defensiveness....Consigue cajones,Petronius!!....Seeya later,Ex,I'm off to work

PARTY IN THE PANIC ROOM! Serena wins an undoubtedly clean #22
