Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

can anyone translate if Petra say something, i can't read Czech ,
but i really want to know, (it seems Baghdatis is in this article ) thanks anyway.

http://sport.idnes.cz/nastupuje-dals...22841_tenis_ot

28.08.2007 02:00 - N e w Y o r k - (Od zvláštního zpravodaje MF DNES) - Byla velkou nadějí českého tenisu: ve 14 letech nejlepší v Evropě a později ve čtyřhře dokonce nejlepší na světě. Jenže potom občas přišla na trénink uplakaná a nikomu nechtěla říct, co se děje. Hrála špatně, a když jí bylo 20, propadla se v žebříčku žen až k 500. místu. Zmařený talent, říkalo se.

"Lidi z okolí mě odepsali," vzpomíná Petra Cetkovská. "A vlastně ani já sama už jsem si nevěřila."

Ale nakonec nebude tak zle. Cetkovské je 22 roků a včera si poprvé zahrála hlavní soutěž grandslamového turnaje. Premiéra dopadla výborně. Američanku Craybasovou zdolala 6:0, 7:6 (4).

"Asi to tak rychlé nečekala, ale mně to nevadilo. Hrála jsem dobře. Dokázala jsem si, že můžu porazit hráčku ze světové stovky," poznamenává.

Na žebříčku by se mohla posunout do první stovky. "Určitě mi to posílí sebevědomí. Dostanu se na turnaje, kam jsem až doteď nemohla."

V davu Petru Cetkovskou rozhodně nepřehlédnete. Leda snad v davu modelek. Když se jí bude dařit, budou se za ní fanoušci už brzo otáčet nejen kvůli bekhendům a forhendům. Však také manažer Miroslav Černošek včera nesl sadu jejích fotek do firmy Nike.

S tenisem začala Cetkovská v pěti letech. Otec hrával s kamarády a ji vzal s sebou, jen co udržela raketu. Odmalička nerada běhala a nebavilo ji jen tak míče přehazovat na druhou stranu. Její údery jsou tvrdé, naučila se chodit na síť.

Když jí bylo 16 let, seznámila se na turnaji v Argentině s nadějným juniorem Marcosem Baghdatisem. "Pokukovali jsme po sobě, jako všechny děti v pubertě," říká. Nakonec spolu čtyři a půl roku chodili a Kypřan hrál dokonce tenis za dorostenecký tým Prostějova.

Aby se nevídali jen párkrát do roka, odešla za ním do Paříže, do tenisové akademie Mouratoglou. Našla si tam francouzského trenéra, se kterým je dodnes.

Už ale není s Baghdatisem. Rozešli se měsíc před tím, než loni slavně postoupil do finále Australian Open. A nebylo to zrovna v dobrém. "Dodnes se spolu moc nebavíme," popisuje Cetkovská. Z akademie musela odejít a trénovala v Londýně.

Potíže v osobním životě tím však neskončily. Rodiče se poměrně dramaticky rozváděli a ona to těžce nesla. "Musela jsem se v kariéře vyrovnat s několika problémy," popisuje.

Od prvního slova je vidět, že je spíš tichá. Příliš veselo není, ani když dojde na peníze. S trenérem totiž chce ještě nějaký čas zůstat v cizině, což není zrovna levné.

"Přežívám," říká. "Ale už brzo chci žít."

Když se jí splní tenisový sen, bude to mít snadné. Chtěla by být mezi dvaceti nejlepšími na světě.

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Petra was dating Baghdatis for 4 and half years.

She says she is happy, that after many complications and setbacks in her career when she questioned herself and others wrote her off, she proved to herself that she is able to beat a top 100 player. She played well and maybe her opponent didn't expect the match to be over so quickly.
She has a french coach whom she finded when she lived in Paris with Baghdatis and practiced in Mouratoglou tennis academy. She and the Cypriot ended their relationship a month before the latter reached AO final in 2005, in a rather unfriendly manner and hardly talk to each other now.
She started with tennis when she was five, never liked running too much, has hard strokes and learned how to play at the net. She would like to be in the world's top 20. That's her tennis dream.

Nice article. Sorry, I am too lazy to translate it verbatim.

Oh, it's been out in the open for over a year, widely discussed in the GM forum. If you search back in the archive you'll find even some paparazzi shots of Marcos and young Petra.. . Too bad they are'n on talking terms
