Right, guess I was too excited yesterday.

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~

Petra reaches the main draw by dismissing TFMT 2, 1. Makes one wonder how Pironkova could lose to TFMT via a score of 2, 2. Must've been an off-day for Tsvetana. Petra is very fortunate to move on. Happens in sports....

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra plays Sloane Stephens tomorrow in the lst round, match is on the Grandstand Court. "If" she prevails against Sloane, she gets 'Pova in the 2nd. Maybe, Petra should enter New Haven ere the USO, for it's not likely she's going far here in Cincy.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

After seeing some of her recent performances, I'd actually be happy with R2 here. This is already 31 point and in case of another win it'd be 90 - not a bad week, especially from the perspective of this season. She got one of the better draws definately, although you can hardly get a great draw in these events.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

A shame..... Streams are available for Cincy, courts Center and Grandstand are the only show courts at this point. Petra is on Grandstand, her match is the only ladies match slated for that court and it's blacked out, while every men's match on Grandstand is streamed tomorrow. Now, why would the network(s) except the ladies' match, while showing all men's matches slated for that court? The women's matches on Center are subject to visuals, why not Petra's match with Sloane? Hope someone explains why their match is not subject to a stream, for it's a slap at the ladies for sure.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

It's even stranger if you consider she'll face a high-ranked American

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra currently 3rd on the USO quali list. And I'd actually like it to stay that way. She's not defending any points and she seems to be picking some momentum lately so she could certainly qualify and pick valuable points. Don't think she is ready for possible horror draws of the main section at the moment. Anyway, just talkin't to myself a bit.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Yeah, I don't think this MD placement will do her much good, except maybe from the financial standpoint. She might very well play a seed or even an in-form unseeded player, and we all know what could happen then. As one of the top seeds of the qualies she could've at least picked up 40 points rather easily. Oh well, good luck with the draw.
