Re: Nadia Petrova 2013

Nadia into Stuttgart R2 !

This was not a good match from Nadia. But Pfizenmaier is tricky on clay with her topspin. She was full of confidence after winning 3 qualifying matches. And she has a nice serve. Thank God Nadia won the important points. Her serve helped her. Main problem was Nadia was too slow. She definitely has to improve her footwork/movement in next match.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Good luck vs Ivanovic today, Nadia !

Re: Nadia Petrova 2013

Nadia couldn't have a better draw:

[6]Kerber vs Hsieh
Cornet vs Bertens
Zheng vs Kuznetsova
Q vs [11]Petrova

She should at least defend her second-round points, and possibly go beyond.

Re: Nadia Petrova 2013

Wow, it's great she was able to overcome Carmila!

Now another big test. She's 2-5 against Sveta, and has never beaten her on clay. However, this is their first meeting in three years, and Sveta's comeback so far has been uneven.

Re: Nadia Petrova 2013

Nice win over Giorgi, Nadia !

Finally Nadia beat Giorgi for the first time. Sweet revenge for Wimbledon loss last year. Nadia`s serve was on fire: 16 Aces, 3 DFs. Kuznetsova next. Very dangerous opponent for Nadia. Kuznetsova leads Head To Head 5-2. And Nadia is in poor form this year. She`s only #41 in YEC Race, while Kuznetsova is #16. A huge difference. I have zero expectations.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Re: Nadia Petrova 2013

^ Funny, as I think Nadia's in great form, despite what the race rankings say atm.

However, her form wasn't enough to overcome Sveta. She lost in a tough three sets, 67(2) 46 64. Too bad.

At least she was able to defend her points from last year.

Re: Nadia Petrova 2013

Here's her section:

(11)Petrova vs. Suarez Navarro
Pavlyuchenkova vs. Oprandi
Flipkens vs. Wickmayer
BYE vs. (6)Kerber

Very tough. Carla isn't the ideal player to start a big tournament off with, although Nadia is 2-1 against her, including a 3-set victory in Rome in 2009. Petra also defeated her 1 & 0 in Dubai this year.Let's hope she keeps her focus here (you never know with Nadia!) before falling to Pavs.

Nadia has second-round points to defend. Too bad she won't go further.

Re: Nadia Petrova 2013

Every time I've seen Nadia play this year, she's seemed very distracted with her tennis....Carla will be very tough on clay, we'll see how it goes.

Re: Nadia Petrova 2013

Welp. Blew two mps to go down in three, 63 26 67(1).

Apparently she was up 5-2 in the third and had 40-15 at 6-5.
