Re: ~Petra Martic~

Both of our girls are tomorrow scheduled on C1 Darija opens the program at 10:30 and Petra follows, not before noon (local time). Here's hoping for two wins

P. S. Love how Petra said in an iterview that she decided to have fun in Tokyo, understanding that her chances of a great result are slim anyway considering the circumstances...or so they seemed It's payed out for her to play like she has nothing to lose.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Nice pics - especially the last one

Anyway, it's lousy that all this effort from Petra will only bring her 60 points, which makes it even more important to try to win against Petrova. Without that win she'd probably advance only one ranking spot, while with it she could count on landing somewhere around #65.
Good thing is that she's not defending anything in Beijing, which is a P5 and, if I'm not mistaken, points from it stick to your ranking for another year, so if she could, say, reach just R3 there, that would be a nice stash of points (110).
After that, I'd seriously consider Osaka, cause the field probably won't be too tough with all the major events finished (except SEC), and if she's already in the region it wouldn't be a bad idea to enter it. Thinking logically, if she'd play those three events, she'd probably skip Moscow/Luxembourg, which would be a reasonable move IMO, cause the field in Moscow is so limited that she'd need to play qualies and Luxembourg isn't that important anyway.
This time could be spent preparing to enter either Poitiers 100k (Oct. 22nd) or Barnstaple 75k (Oct. 29th) or both. Could be a good idea, in order to try to make up for some of the time lost this summer. These two weeks she could also, for example, plan two events in France (Poitiers 100k + Nantes 50k+H), Canada (Saguenay 50k + Toronto 50k) or USA (50k in Texas + 75k in Arizona between Oct. 29th - Nov. 12). But that's just me thinking out loud

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Sorry, but you are not going to see Petra's match with Nadia, for their match is scheduled for Court 1, which is not a show court. Only Center court matches will be streamed and not all of them, for ESPN's coverage here in the States doesn't begin 'til midnight, which is after the lst 2 matches on Center are scheduled. This is clearly a disappointment, for this run by Petra is significant and I, for one, would have liked to have seen her victories over Andrea and Petra K. in addition to this evening's match with Nadia.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

And Petra breaks! They both have serve percentage way under 50%. I wonder if it's windy or something.
