Re: ~Petra Martic~

I knew how final would end and I still had to watch it!

Great week for Petra, just extremly unlucky in the end!

Still she deserves congratulations!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

I don't know will Petra ever read these lines. I wanna say 'You're my true Heroine. In Kuala-Lumpur's final you showed us your true nature, what you're made of. We learnt that you're a real girl-fighter, the feature only top ten players possesses. I wish you fast health, speedy recovery & victories you could only dream of. From now on i'm your supporter.'

Yes, the trophy had to be hers, but asian weather favored another player. I hope this adds up to her hunger for victories.

Nice jump up in the rankings for Petra this week, from 66 to 55. She's getting very close to her CH ranking of 47.

I hope she recovered completely from Kuala-Lumpur and will play a good tournament.

That is if she will be able to recover, hopefully she didn't pick up some injury in KL also.
I expect 1 win for sure.
How did she do last year here?

This.
And last year she didn't qualify for MD. She won R1 but then lost to Hradecka so this is nice opportunity to pick up some mandatory points.
Then next week in Miami she lost in R2 of MD but she was directly into MD.

So true. Petra lucked out with the draw. Hope she'll take advantage of this opportunity.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra will not play Wed, which gives her an extra day to recover from that brutal Sunday, GL Petra

Re: ~Petra Martic~

For those who haven't seen it yet, an interesting article in yesterdays newspaper about Petra: http://www.vecernji.hr/sport/tenis/p...-clanak-384571

And for those who don't understand the langueage, key points would be:

- she's preparing for IW where she thinks it'll all be up to her in R1 match; traveling through 16 time zones after playing two matches on Sunday was tough, but she's getting better by the day
- in KL she asked if the final could be postponed for Monday but broadcasting rights were already sold for Sunday so rain was the only hope for more rest between matches, but Sunday was the only day that it didn't rain
- she is still very happy about the whole tournament, beating Jankovic was the highlight of her career so far
- she used to share a coach with Polona Hercog but as of this year he is fully committed to Petra so she no longer has to adjust to other people in the picture
- goal for this year is top 30, if she stays healthy she thinks it's a really reasonable target; she is aware that she advanced in her game and plans to continue implementing an offensive approach.
