Re: ~Petra Martic~

Sorana's game depends very much on her mood, so I think that's the key of the match. Well, that's the key of most of Sori's matches.
I'll be rooting for the Romanian in this one

Re: ~Petra Martic~

As always, it's a matter of which Cirstea turns up. Wickmayer's recent form has been quite bad, the win against Lisicki, who hadn't played for some time due to injury, was in round 1 of the USO. She followed this up with a r 2 loss to Tatishvili 6-7 6-1 6-2. Consistency is her biggest problem, and not just from game to game.

I agree Petra needs to take the initiative and apply pressure, this is the key if Sorana starts off playing well.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

I think it matters more which Petra shows up, Tokyo or Beijing Petra.
These both players are so up and down that you never know, but of course Cirstea is clear favorite, her ranking tells why.
If Petra can play really well then it doesn't matter how Cirstea plays, it would be ok no matter how it would end.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

If Azarenka would withdraw then Petra would play vs LL.
Very much possible...

My thoughts exactly - she, unfortunately, usually plays well in the opening round or two.

I agree with this too. Beijing Petra could probably lose to a stoned monkey in a wheelchair, so we should try to call out the Tokyo Petra somehow... Anyone into black magic? Distant hypnosis?

Re: ~Petra Martic~

And they have a winnable doubles R1 I'd say - against Cadantu/Savinykh. In action tomorrow, 4th match on C1.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

After today's (hopefully successful) singles match, Petra is tomorrow again in doubles action - 4th seeds Dushevina/Rosolska are next opponents. It's a tough one, but as always, a step at a time.
