Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Petra will play Olga Puchkova in R1. Definitely a winnable match.

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Yes, better for her to draw someone ranked around 75 who just lost to someone ranked 241, than to draw someone around 35-40. Last time Puchkova won a main draw match at RG was 2007 although she is having the best year of her career since around that time. It is a winnable match. I'm assuming Petra's using a protected ranking cause her ranking is 199 now?

From December 2012 to March 2013 her ranking went from 55 to 76. Her ranking at the beginning of April was 93. So if PR is the average of the first three months out from injury, she's got a ranking of 70-80ish? she can use for eight events. Use it wisely Petra.

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Yeah, miracle to draw Olga at a Slam, after a 6-month layoff. She has second round points to defend.

Good luck to her!

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Petra deserves victories like no other player in WTA tour. I hope this first round victory gives her enough confidence to go far in Roland Garros this year.

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Petra just steamrolled Olga.

Now has successfully defended her points from last year, and now meets Pavlyuchenkova, who almost lost in the first round. Petra is 1-1 against her, and 1-0 on clay, so she is going in looking for the upset!

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Not sure what happened to Pavlyuchenkova but she seems to be out of form for some period. There is no pressure on Petra (except her own willingness to beat everybody) so I am really looking for 2nd round

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

This is the best start you can have after a long time injury. Nothing to lose against Pavly now.

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Petra will play Q in Wimbledon. She doesn´t want to waste her special ranking entry. She want use it for US open.
