Re: ~Petra Martic~

I sure hope Petra's coach understands what happened out there cause I certainly don't.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

At least she's into the doubles semi, after a 4 & 4 win. Hope they make the most of it.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Since she'll be seeded in Dubai, the highest ranked player she could face in R1 will be Friedsam (entry r. 135). I guess that's a good thing. Hope she avoids any of the Croats in the first round at least.

But first things first - doubles semi coming up in about an hour. Good luck girls!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

5:7, 6:7 to Garcia/Shvedova. Not a terrible week in the end, too bad about a close loss today, but they did lose to a slightly better team. Petra's doubles ranking should be around 77 next week.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Dubai 75k, singles R1:

Petra as the 5th seed of the tournament has a chance to do the impossible, lose to a completely out-of-form player, whose only win in the last 3 months came against an unranked player and who was once #151 but is now #529 - Elena Bogdan.

Mean jokes aside, R2 offers a match against either Kudryavtseva (could be tricky) or Camerin (should be easy) and the quarterfinal against Putintseva or Panova. A pretty decent draw if I may say.


Good luck Petra!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

^ Count on Petra--on any of our players, really--to do the impossible.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Not even thinking about the impossible. Good luck!

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~

Wins the match 6:3, 6:1, but it wasn't really as esay as it seems. At least not towards the end of the match.

Petra was pretty much cruising, in 7 service games she lost a total of 8 points, had 4 aces under her belt and didn't offer her opponent any BP chances. She also had won about two thirds of points up until that point in time. And then her mind obviously wandered off, after all, she was leading by a set and 5:0, so what could go wrong, right? Well almost a lot went wrong. In the last service game along she lost additional 6 points on serve, offered Bogdan a total of 4 BP's - which were all, luckily, defended - and ended the match on her third match point, firing her 6th ace. Overall it could've been a bit easier and faster, but I guess we can't really complain now.

Looking forward to see whom she plays next now and here's hoping she'll preserve her focus for the entire match in R2
