I have a feeling that if she'll continue to struggle like this for the next weeks or months, she'll decide to stay only in doubles. Right now, she have no confidence and no motivation for singles.

Having vertigo and being a professional athlete that competes and trains as hard as tennis players, it's safe to say Nadia will retire in the not too distant future if she can't get it under control.

Vania, nice win! :worship: Really good for her to beat a slumping Petrova, and a winnable match against Beth coming up. Would be fantastic for her Fed Cup chances if she beat Beth. :drool:

Wow that's a shockingly poor loss for Petrova :o It's a shame her mental weakness, and her often poor attitude prevented her from achieving more at her peak, and from achieving more consistent success week in and week out. When she could put it all together without pressure, she could play some real top quality tennis. Unfortunately, you have to wonder whether she's even bothered with singles these days unless it's a "big" match. :shrug:

That being said, I'm happy for Vania...Not her biggest fan or anything, but love her attitude as a player and am always happy to see someone like that come out on top and benefit.

Petrova's just a joke seriously. She really needs to retire. And I've been a fan of hers for eight years.

Mind you she's probably going to start reaching Grand Slam QFs again out out nowhere given how up and down her career has been the last five years.

Mynarco
May 1st, 2011, 07:18 PM
Petrova is just a huge waste of talent. 2006, after beating peak-Justine in Berlin final,the injury problem set in and she lost to Morigami in FO first round. Then her career is over.

Last title is 2008 Quebec City.

Whilst I have never liked Petrova, you have to wonder how long it will be before she calls it quits. She's only beaten one Top 50 player all year and has looked a shadow of the player that once was #3 in the world. I personally never believed RG 2006 was hers for the taking (Its one thing to beat Henin in a Tour Final, quite another in a Slam Final, particularly at RG) But to see how her game has disintregrated over the past 12 months or does make you wonder how much motivation she has left at 28.

Nadia :sad: things are not going well for her right now. Such a waste of huge potential :hug:.

Looks like Nadia won't be top 30 after RG. :hug: Sadly

She might not be top 30 BEFORE RG. What might save her seed is the fact that Rezai, Venus and Safarova also drop a bunch of points next week.

Hadn't really noticed Petrova's meltdown but this is a good win for Vania.

Nadia was being coached by Liezel Hubers' husband.
With the doubles breakup everything is rather messed up for but having Liezels husband as a coach hasn't done much good to her either.

This is actually pretty sad. I mean Nadia Petrova, someone who rocked the clay season a couple of years ago and was #1 fave to win RG, loses to freakin' Vania King? Seriously, I can't :facepalm:

When was that? She's a good player and everyone's sad about this generation pre-retirement positions, but seriously, she's never been a fave to win RG :shrug:

Yeah, after winning Berlin by defeating Justine, apparently. My bad then, totally forgot about it. Still can't remember her being #1 fave to win RG, but she was one of the faves, right.
