Re: Nadia Petrova 2014 !

Nadia lost in Doha R1 to Peng 6-7 5-7

She still looked really rusty. She needs matches, matches, matches ...

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

Re: Nadia Petrova 2014 !

3-6 2-6 loss in Dubai R1 to Navarro

Nadia must move better, serve better, convert the break points and reduce her UEs

Re: Nadia Petrova 2014 !

Indian Wells is virtually the last tournament where she has something to defend. Let's hope for a kind draw and a less rusty Nadia

Re: Nadia Petrova 2014 !

Glad Nadia got a WC for Indian Wells ! R1 vs Soler-Espinosa. For sure a winnable match

Time for Nadia to win a WTA MD match again. Her last win was at Madrid in May 2013 !

Sad news for all fans ... Silvia Soler-Espinosa def. Nadia Petrova 1-1 ret.

Some things need a woman's touch!
Some things need a russian touch!
I need a touch from Nadia Petrova!

Re: Nadia Petrova 2014 !

Nadia defeated U.Radwanska 7-5 1-6 6-4 !

So happy. Very important win. Nadia had 7 Aces, 8 DFs. She won 101 points, Ula 100

Miami R2 vs Sabine Lisicki. Nothing to lose. Do your best, Nadia

Re: Nadia Petrova 2014 !

Lisicki beat Nadia 3-6 6-4 6-4

Still far away from her best form. Good news, Nadia got a WC for Charleston

I wanted to check in with you all. I know it's been a while. I'm sorry and hope you all understand the difficulty and pain I've been going through. This was my first win in main draw since my return on tour. It was a very emotional day. I know it's going to take some time and the more I'm playing and on court, the easier things will get. I really appreciate everyone's support, especially now when I need it most. Time to get back on court. Please stay tuned.

So sweet. Nadia, we love you and always support you

Re: Nadia Petrova 2014 !

a very sweet message from Nadia. Too bad she lost against Sabine (and then she withdrew)
but she has shown she's willing to fight, and her first win was a welcoming and promising one for the next few weeks. Is she playing Charleston as a wild card?
All the best to her, thanks for posting the message.

Re: Nadia Petrova 2014 !

6-4 3-6 4-6 loss to Erakovic in Charleston R1

Unfortunately still far away from her best form. But Nadia must stay positive. The talent is there. But she has to work really hard to improve her serve, movement/footwork and return. I guess next for Nadia is Madrid. Quali or main draw with Wild Card ? I don`t understand her schedule to be honest. Nadia is playing all the big tournaments, but she can`t win matches there in this form. It makes no sense. Nadia should play the smaller WTA tournaments on clay, for example she could have entered Oeiras or Nürnberg. There she can get match practice, confidence with wins and much needed ranking points. The Premier level is currently simply too high for Nadia, if she doesn`t improve her game significantly in next weeks.

Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Re: Nadia Petrova 2014 !

Nadia's problems seem to be mental lapses..these 3 setters are the problem. Hopefully she can get back into the groove soon. She needs to take her game to the ITFs imo...

Re: Nadia Petrova 2014 !

Any news? I thought she would play Madrid maybe with a wild card, but I can't see her.

Looks like she's skipping the clay season
