I expected Petra to WD from Buchurest so I am pretty surprised she is still on entry list. I mean, she won 1 game on grass against LDL only two weeks ago and I don't believe that she somehow fully recovered from that injury in such short period.
GL to Petra, but if she again wins only 1-4 games it is time for a longer break, forcing her body won't do her any good.
It has been two years ago when she was TOP 50 player, can't believe how her career went down side, she was such a talent. Damn injuries
I see that Petra is in qualies for Stanford, an event that suddenly has benefited from the closing of the San Diego tourney. The playing field is strong for a 710k event, which has commitments from Serena, Petra K., Sam', Aggie, Ana I., Sabine, Garbine, Cibulkova and Carla Suarez amongst others. With Venus and Vika entering as well Stanford's playing field becomes extremely competitive from the lst round on. Maybe, if her wrist is completely healed by the 28th of the month, Petra M. should reconsider participation at Stanford and enter the Washington, D.C. 250k event where the competition is lighter, featuring Sloane, Eugenie, Madison Keys, Lucie S. amongst others. Yet, the qaulie's list looks to be stronger in some respects than the maindraw, featuring De Brito, Razzano, the slumping and disappointing Julia Georges, Taylor Townsend, Tamira Pazsek, Kiki Bertens and Kris Mladenovic, while the qaulie's list for Stanford is noticeably weaker, but the maindraw is way too deep for Petra's current form. Well, I still think, if healthy, that D.C. is a better event for Petra at this point.
Her logic behind this choice of tournament is probably that she'll try to use her last chances to play big tournaments and maybe a draw opens for her in one of them so that she gets back up the rankings rather quickly. Can't see another reason.
Anyway, next up Istanbul, where she'll be joined by Donna and Ana. It could be quite a tournament for our girls - hopefully Petra will join in on the fun
Down 50 spots in singles (to 177) and 28 in doubles (to 108)...
It can't go on like that forever right
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.
