Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • - Vikalume 2.
I didn't watch it either, but glad Petra won, I like her and she is a better player than Sara.
My problem with the Petra hype is that people disregard the bad matches, bad sets as some sort of abberation, not the real Petra, when they're just a natural consequence of the way she plays the sport. The opportunity cost (if you want to be as prententious as me) of playing that aggressive is that when things go wrong they really go wrong ... you can't have the brutal beautiful winners without also strings of errors.
That applies to all aggressive or ballbash players I guess. I always facepalm when people say "if only she could cut out the errors" or worse "she's so stupid" "such a headcase". For a player like Petra who's naturally powerful but not the quickest, it's the smart game plan to try to finish the points quickly, whatever the outcome.
