Re: ~Petra Martic~

She somehow managed to win this, i can't believe the second set she played though.
Iva Majoli in the crowd giving advice to her and commenting on the match - not sure i like that.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

100 points, and a very good draw in the second round, but she must play better than this

Re: ~Petra Martic~

My first post here.

Congrats to Petra and good luck in the next round!

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Now, when emotions are down, I have to congratulate Petra for a win in first round
In first set, she was playing perfect, hitting corners with first serve whenever she wanted, played agressive, Tatishvili helped a lot with her unforced errors, but it came often as a result of anger and frustration caused by Petra's game. She had a break point 30:40 at 1:0 in the second set, and when she didn't take advantage of it, chokefest started She started playing like crap and let Anna to dictate points, and as the time went by, Tatishvili had more and more confidence and everything was going in her favour. In third set, both players had poor presentation, Petra was lucky that Anna missed those forehands at break points on 3:2 in decider. Without winning that game at 3:2, Petra would crumble . A big hold at 4:3 closed out the match actually, and there was nothing more her opponent could do.
A good win to get some confidence, but her serve( which served her well with 10 aces) must be more consistent, she needs to be careful with those dropshots and come towards the net right after she hits the drop, because it's awkward to play volley from service line, and that happened many times today( volleys were extremely bad for a player like Petra). The one thing I don't see is a better movement, she seems so lazy sometimes.
Next opponent is Karolina Pliskova who crushed Petrova, Petra will have to play better to beat her, but she did it in Nottingham, I don't see why couldn't she repeat it again GL in the next round

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra beat Ka. Pliskova 3 and 3, on grass, just three weeks ago. Let's hope she can do it again, this time on the much bigger stage.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Pliskova is a complete servebot. Petra should be able to beat her but this won't be easy.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

I joined the match at 1:3 second set yesterday, and was obviously appalled by what I saw. Petra's serve was everywhere, her DTL's were two feet too long and her head was some place else. Tatishvili was winning more and more rallies, using her greatest asset (her mobility), and bit by bit she was taking over the control of the offense. With that situation going on, there's no other way in which the 2nd set might've finished. Start of the third proved to be the crucial part of the match, and we have to be fair that Petra had also some luck during those first several games of the final set. Sure, the main thing is that she kept on trying, but faith was on her side in some deciding moments too. The one who controled the attack held the match in her hands, and in the third this was Petra. Things starting going in after the break and she started playing a much smarter match towards the end.

This is an incredibly valuable win for Petra, eventhough it came as a result of sub-par performance. It's acutally great to see her winning a match eventhough she was playing far below her best. Points will be of great help, as this will at least ensure she gets seeded in USO qualies, although there's still enough time to make the main draw. If she wins another match she'll again be Croatian #2btw. Draw looks really great, let's hope this is a start of something new, maybe a time when Petra will make the most of her chances on the biggest of stages and go back to where she belongs.

Looking forward to R2 (and to streaming ...)!
