The Woz match will be fun, hope it's streamed, but I don't expect much. Woz is the favorite.

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Hey everyone; I was at the Vekic match yesterday - you can read what I thought of it in the results thread in GM, but I thought I'd pop in here to say how impressed I was with Petra. She's beautiful to watch in person; lovely all-court, fluid game. I definitely became a fan

She has a good future but she never had a chance in this one. Petra just toyed with her.

So many times, Vekic hit a great shot, drawing Petra out wide perhaps, or simply putting her on the defense and out of her comfort zone, yet Cet was almost always able to reply with interest - with dinks, chips, dropshots, lobs, volleys and a great BH slice she used on several occasions, to get herself not only back into the point but to turn defense into attack, as Donna couldn't deal with it consistently.

Cetkovska's strokes are so fluid, there is nothing jarring about her game and she moves really elegantly. Whilst she wasn't as powerful as Vekic, she hits a great ball, is VERY accurate, moves well and loves the into-out FH. She never looked off-balance, whereas Vekic was often all over the place. In fact that was a big thing I noticed today. All these players hit the ball well, but a big difference is how the better players defend. Petra never really looked uncomfortable, regardless of what Vekic hit.

Donna is clearly great, but I'm not jumping on the bandwagon yet. She's not so powerful as to just hit her way off the court, and really her weaknesses were exposed today. Still, she's just 16, LOADS of time.

Interesting moment; I was sitting on the back row. Halfway through the 2nd set I heard what sounded like Polish being whispered DIRECTLY into my ear I turned my head to the right and there was Caroline Wozniacki standing behind the chairs, practically breathing down my neck. She was SO close to my face I had to laugh. She gave me a smile. It was quite... surreal. She seems a very nice person.

A few cute pics of a young Petra posted in the GM. I think they're worth reposting

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Wow, Petra just steamrolled Donna (So much for the youngsters taking over here ) Petra is definitely a dark horse in this tournament. Woz should be more worried that she drew her, than Petra should be of drawing Woz.

We'll see how it goes!

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Petra certainly matured into her looks... those eyebrows in pic 2.

She and Caro are second on Court 2. I so hope that my TV channel screens it but with Lleyton Hewitt playing on the same court just before them, I doubt it!

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Wozniacki claiming injury... wouldn't really even matter if she was fit in my eyes. Petra is dominating! The sound of the ball coming off her racket is just excellent. Serving quite well... a few unforced errors here n there... but Petra is BACK!!! I just hope Caro doesn't pull out as Petra could really use the confidence from giving her a proper thumping. Also, revenge from the final in Newhaven is in order!

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Better player won, as simple as that

Hard to say though if Wozniacki was injured or not.

Anyway, good luck to her in the next round !

Re: Petra Cetkovska? Any news?

Did anybody else just love her cute reaction in the end? So subtle yet so elegant.

Elegant is the word I used to describe her on Monday after seeing her vs. Vekic. She's lovely

6-2 6-2 is one of my favorite scorelines Petra was just great today. Next round should be winnable as well
