Re: ~Petra Martic~

JJ lost today. If Aggie loses this evening, then all 3 players, Martic included, appear to be victims of jet lag after playing in Malaysia and crossing time zones. Not an excuse, but it appears reasonable, for JJ said after her loss today that she felt "lost in space" while playing, lol.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra's section of Miami draw.
She has never been able to beat Tsvetana so far in career so this is not the best draw.
Good luck!

[21] Roberta Vinci (ITA) bye
Tsvetana Pironkova (BUL) - Petra Martic (CRO)
[WC] Shuai Zhang (CHN) - Elena Baltacha (GBR)
[10] Serena Williams (USA) bye

Well, they've only played twice on the WTA (and Petra retired on one of those) so it's not like it's desperately hopeless

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra dismissed by Tsvetana in 2, non-competitive sets 6-3, 6-2, as expected. Simply can't handle her. Too light.........

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Yeah expected loss but I didn't expect it would be so onesided!

As of now, don't think so, tho' there are slots still available in the qualies and main draw at this point. Maybe, she should look into it, for she didn't last one round at IW and Miami. Wouldn't hurt, so that her stateside run isn't a total washout. Plus, Pironkova is not entered either.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

This is definately not good for her 2012 plans, cause she needed at least one win from these two tournaments. That loss to Davis might prove expensive. Really hope she enters Charleston.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra and Groenefeld won their R1 match in Miami. They beat Benesova/Z Strycova 75 57 1210

In R2 they play the #6 seeds, Errani/Vinci. Good luck!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Really nice news, I honestly didn't think they'll make it. The next match will probably be even tougher, so I hope they'll be ready, cause you really never know in tennis.

Best of luck girls!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

little bit late, but this will always be the match to cherish

highlights of Malaysian SF against Jankovic, credit to Thomas for the source, missing 7 games in 3rd set
