Re: ~Petra Martic~

That bh looks even more unnatural than it used to.
She's completely out of any form.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Well, at least Petra got props from Martina Nav, the studio host and the gent, who is a tennis coach doing the color of the match, noting that she has top-30 skills. But, unfortunately, they surmised that her weight of shot is too lite, not aggressive enough in her approach and that she doesn't exhibit much confidence. I was glad to see that she didn't use the slice too much, for much of her ground game is slices and droppers, which puts her at a disadvantage in rallies, for the opposing player usually just hits through the slice, putting her on the defensive, for which she doesn't have the ground game from the baseline to recover from such. Yet, Venus didn't give Petra a chance to use the slice for her ground strokes didn't allow it. Petra still needs to improve her baseline game with more weight of shot, for even her 2-handed backhand does no damage. She needs to get stronger and I don't know how she'll develop that physical part of her game. Looks like a lost year in singles, unless she does damage in the international events, where the competition is lite.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Overall I'm quite pleased with what I saw, all things considered. Of course, no one expected anything much different from this match, as the difference between the two is painfully obvious. Petra did well at a few times during the course of the match IMO, and wether she'll take this as a beating or a lesson, it's up to her. With the right approach she could take this to her advantage in the long run, but approach has always been her problem unforntuatelly. Anyway, maybe she can do something in doubles, but I'm not expecting much of this pairing of her and Marina honestly. I do hope this week is a start of something new and better. It's about time.

Anyway, Venus vs. Croatia now goes to 10:1, 20:5 in sets. Just shows how good she really is, in case a few slam titles are not enough to impress someone

Venus vs. Petra 6:2 6:2 (1-0)
Venus vs. Mirjana 6:0 6:0, 6:3 6:3 (2-0)
Venus vs. Karolina 2:6 6:3 6:4, 6:7 6:7, 6:2 6:2, 7:5 6:3 (3-1)
Venus vs. Iva 7:5 3:6 7:5 (1-0)
Venus vs. Jelena 6:4 6:1, 6:3 6:3 (2-0)
Venus vs. Silvija 3:6 6:3 9:7 (1-0)

Re: ~Petra Martic~

It'd be so cool to see Petra vs. Mirjana in dubs - if only it were on a smaller event without so many big names, might've gotten streamed
