I got to hand it to the few Kvitova bandwagoners that are still left, they're sticking it out till the end. I wouldn't bet 20 cents on her, there's no way she will get anywhere close to the final [at the YEC].

I mean when Kvitty won Wimbledon you were all full of confidence and berating everyone who dared to suggest she was not quite going to become a no.1 or a major force on the tour. A few months later and you, fans of Wimbledon champion, are full of joy when she gets to a QF or a mandatory or beats some average players in international tournament. But still you are delusional enough to suggest she is the fav to win the YEC. Speaks for itself...

For all the hype Kvitova gets, she really isn't that great unless her game is on and the environment is perfect for her. She looks very beatable if you can put pressure on her, and I fully expect that to be illustrated next year... Her winning game just has too little variety and margin for error as it is now.

:oh: :hah: :hah:

Real #1 was at her very best for the first 5 games, but from then on until the beginning of the third, she seemed to completely lose her timing and feel for the ball and was blasting pretty much every ball she tried to hit with any pace well out. Credit to Azarenka too for defending well, taking any scraps she could, and doing a much better job of returning Real #1's serve than anyone else has to date, from what I've seen. But, as expected, Real #1's champion mentality came to the rescue at the crunch; in the third set, she got just the right balance of controlled aggression while landing enough balls in court. She showed time and time again this week how she can scramble through matches even when below her best. I said after Wimbledon and I still believe now, there's no way this girl is finishing her career with less than 8 Slams, and she'll be a major contender at the Australian and US Open as well as Wimbledon for years to come (still not sure about RG though) - she's just got too much talent and such a rounded game.

Good match to end the season for the WTA too :yeah:

Not anywhere near her best, but still got the job done in the end, like a true champ. :yeah:

Kvitty's sheer guts and all-court prowess won her the match today.

Petra :worship: NID but today was the worst match played by her the whole week. Luckily it's still enough.:cheer: almost choke but oh well, forgiven for winning the YEC.:worship:
Dropshots mostly work well, mixing a little up to throw off Vika but net play overall was poor compared to usual. Serve was pretty ineffective today compared to the whole week but still manage to get it done when it mattered most. and don't let anyone to dominate you on points. You're not Jankovic/Cibulkova.
Vika :shrug: :hug: still great tournament. also playing pretty poor compared to her first 2 matches. hopefully she can keep getting better and win a slam next year or so.:cheer: Dont ever try pushing please. Don't think it works for Caro to be #1 and will work you too.:o

After 5-0 in the first..I thought she was going to get defenestrated :help: good comeback :)

Bad start to the 3rd set, had 4 bps in Petra's first game, then got broken.

But enjoyable match..good stuff Petra :yeah:

Oct 30th, 2011, 06:44 PM
Vika just doesn´t have the mental focus to go for the lines and balls in a big match. Then she turns into her one-dimensional mode and plays everything into the middle. the last few points showed she can move Kvitova around and finish points off.

Well still this is most likely the match-up of the future.

Glad she won, as she was in the best form out of all the players this week. It's a shame Kvitova is not #1, but it's her fault that she played like garbage during the summer. If she had gone deeper at the USO or in 1 of the USO series events, she'd be #1 :shrug: She's a great shotmaker but I wish she was more athletic.

I still think Kvitova is not going to dominate tennis, especially on outdoor hardcourts, but it's nice that someone from the younger group stepped up this year.

A very fair Year End Championship. The two best players of the year reached the final and the number one player came out on top in an epic match. Wimbledon, YEC and a prospective Fed Cup victory. Without a doubt the best player of 2011.

:bowdown: :bowdown: :bowdown: at the third set from KvittyGOAT. Especially the first 3 games, and then she proceeded to tank Azarenka's service games. But everything fell so beautifully: the groundies, the serve, the slices, the touch, the point construction and the net play.. and hell even the movement and defense. It's the type of tennis you expect from a future GOAT, especially the controlled power she displayed at 0-40 down.

I wouldn't give a shit about her if she didn't display so much flair in her game. Some absolutely stunning slices and drop shots. The forehand drop volley is quickly becoming a signature shot, but I particularly love the way she hits the backhand volley, even though it's not as effective and there is much to improve.

Despite a very poor US summer, she has won a GS, Premier Mandatory and YEC. This is #1 worthy stuff regardless of Wozniacki's consistency who really only had Indian Wells to show for against it. The other slam winners also had a nightmare period during some time of the season :shrug: I think you're not being fair on her, but then again, why you should be? :angel:

People like this :help:
All the great players have embarassing or unexplainable losses, even in their best years.
Some less than others, but for an up-and-coming player with a high-risk game, are you shocked at all?
Overall, taking all 12 months in, Kvitova has been the best this year, I'd say, in a year with no dominant force she's found herself some very impressive title wins, and her Wimbledon run was the most impressive form I've seen from anyone for so long.

Good match... Petra always had this in hand but finally her level fluctuations almost made turned the match into an epic -- the Vika/Petra can turn out to be a great rivalry with Petra #1 and Vika #2-3. That can really push Vika to progress in the parts of her game faster that aren't enough to touch Petra at her peak level...

That's how the Djokovic/Federer etc... started, I hope to see them play much more in the future. :worship:

Yes that´s absolutely note-worthy. Cibulkova are you for real? Why not throw top 10 Petkovic in there, who is better than Cibulkova. Ah right. :lol:

Well Azarenka is close enough in every match. Two three setters and a close two setter.

Kvitova is certainly the standard for the young generation.

Now six titles, two majors and 100 points behind Wozniacki for the year?

Oct 30th, 2011, 06:57 PM
Vika's become a strong player mentally, good fight :yeah:. I'm not stepping on that Petra bandwagon if she wins > 20 slams (she won't). The barking (yes i know coming from a Vika fan :lol:) the choking and on and off game really don't appeal to me. Actually looking forward to Serena taking her on. AO can be interesting in that respect but it remains to be seen if outdoor hardcourt Petra is that good.

In the end Petra's a nice girl though so congrats. Some points were indeed amazing.

The media and public we will turn our focus to Petra Kvitova BECAUSE she won Wimbledon and the World Championships!

well done to petra! not the best final but was decent enough. i truely hope she takes the number 1 ranking early next year. i would love to see her, serena and clijsters have some ding dong battles next year with kvitova winning a couple and serena and kim can retire knowing that someone has actually shown they can take over from them.

vika has become the most percentage player ever, loads of spun in 1st serves, hardly ever hits DTL on her forehand just rallies it crosscourt. she can hit harder on the backhand but still be high percentage as it is such a good shot.

as for petra, she hasn't been at her best for a whole set let alone a whole match this week, and my doubts about her were winning when she wasn't playing well, but i guess she has gone someway to answering them this YEC.

Congrats Petra, I'll never like her game because it's too erratic and she's not athletic enough to play good defense but there's no denying when she's on that she's nearly impossible to beat.

I disagree Petra is a good athlete and for a woman that is six feet tall she MOVES VERY WELL. The Wimbledon final, I noticed Petra move across the court BETTER than Sharapova. Tall players like Davenport and Sharapova do not HAVE Petra's speed and movement. Petra also has a lot of variety in her game. This girl is the real deal she proved it today! All the pressure was on Petra and she WON!

At least Petra can win a slam the jewel Wimbledon and the YEC the so called number one Wozniacki can't even do that!

Petra is miles ahread of Wozniacki and they are the SAME AGE!

Well Azarenka is close enough in every match. Two three setters and a close two setter.

Kvitova is certainly the standard for the young generation.

Now six titles, two majors and 100 points behind Wozniacki for the year?

Still anyone arguing, who is the player of the year. :lol:

A great way to cap an outstanding year for Petra! Amazing to think that at the start of the year she was ranked 34 in the World. And she's not done yet. She could still add the Fed Cup to her list of honours. Following up a first slam is an important step. There could be no stopping her now.

A great, fighting performance from Azarenka. She's not a favourite of mine but you have to respect the way she played today.

And a big thank you to the Turkish fans and the tournament organisers for the enthusiasm they have shown throughout the tournament. The atmosphere has been great even for those of us watching on the TV. It's made a huge difference. :worship:

Morning Morgan
Oct 30th, 2011, 07:07 PM
What I'm most impressed about Petra is that it is so evident that she has been adding more dimensions to her game throughout the year, regardless of whether it brings instant success. She and her team are planning for her game in the future, and with that attitude it has already paid so much divideneds over the course of one season. Big groundies but with better control of aggression, net transitions, volley technique, and maximizing the potential of her insane lefty ad slice serve. She still has lots to improve though, like sustaining the dunamics of her performance, basic putaways and emotional calmness. In fact, Petra is probably way scarier when she's not barking and pojding all the time, I always suspect this is her outlet to relieve her tension. If you look at her Wimbledon final, she was way calmer and oozing self confidence.

That said, I hope this elevates the games of the other players. What has bothered me about Gneration Suck was how static their game development has been over the last 2 years, and it's as if they are worried to improve their game because they are scared that it would not bring them the current success that they have anymore i.e. inability to exercise delayed gratification. But at least Radwanska has made quite a big move to improve her game with more aggression, and Vika is starting to work on the mental aspect of her game, and hopefully improvement work on her serve follows as well. I also think it would help Wozniacki if she lost the #1 ranking early next year, so that she won't let the title of #1 stop her from improving her game (and showing it on the court), despite claims of constant improvement and new coaching practices, because I have seen her add almost nothing to her game in the last 2 years.

Congratulations to both, really glad the final was between these two as they are levels above their peers. On top of that, Kvitova seems another pair of levels above Vika. By far the best player of her generation, absolute clutch play when she needs it most.

Really proud of Vika's fight, better things are ahead of her. Kvitty seems to be her sole nemesis, seems to me like she is the only one Vika is intimidated by (from this gen).

So glad the best player won - well done Petra! She was below her best for much of the match, her serve seemed to lack the usual penetration, but maybe it was Vika's excellent returning. She kept the ball deep a lot, not allowing Petra to whack the winners. I think it says a huge amount for Kvitova's character that she can win while not playing her all out aggression, winner after winner game. She showed good variety, decent movement and has the champions knack of playing well on the big points. She was far more nervy and anxious looking than in the Wimbledon final where she was just fearless, but she pulled it off like a true winner. I think she has proved a lot this week winning 5 straight matches against the top players, and having to battle in the last 3. Lets hope she can push on and win more slams next year. Can't wait to see her take on Kim and Serena!
Congrats Petra!!! :D :D :D

With this title I guess she has proven she is the best player this year despite her bad losses. Let's hope she'll keep this high level of play and we witness nice competitive tournaments with her, Serena, Kim and all the others.

Petra had some ups and downs as well as her previous matches, but she used good serve/shot variation, concentrated more and was more aggressive in important moment in the final set, so she won by a narrow margin.

It was not fast, but the flat shots skid and bounce very low. This doesn't happen on outdoor hardcourts. Flat shots are easier to handle there.

Having said that, I'm quite confident that her success will slowly but surely transfer to the higher bouncing surfaces. If you hit this good a ball, it will be effective even anywhere.

Vika just doesn't have the balls to put more risk in her game. She had many opportunities in the 3rd, but rarely even tried to do something.

Overall, this tournament exceeded my expectations. The crowds were amazing, so I really hope they don't move it somewhere else. If it stays in Istanbul, I might go there next year :p

Honestly I really don't think this tournament WAS in her comfort zone :shrug: It's so slow. I think one of the EuroSport commentators said it actually is Rebound Ace. I really don't see how there's any difference between a very slow indoor court like this and an outdoor hardcourt... she doesn't seem to be one who's majorly affected by wind, seeing as she made it through to the final in Eastbourne and was a couple of games away from winning the title despite the 20mph winds there this year. Imo, there really is no reason she can't beat the players she beat this week at the Australian Open also... the only difference there will be that Serena and Kim are there.

I was so worried that she would choke after 1st set 5-0 just like her match with Vera. Good that she improves when dealing with pressure and not panic.

As for the "bark" I actually think it shows how passionate she is to win a point it shows she cares a lot. Idk imo it makes her a more dynamic player in terms of personality cause in interviews she looks shy but on court kind of fiesty. On the otherhand, I think Vika is trying so hard to contain her personality and passion it makes her robotic-like and distant imo. I don't see her smile or laugh a lot she's basically like acting another character that's more cold and emotionless so that the emotion won't affect her game but idk Petra makes me feel every action and reaction and interviews are sincere and are actually true to herself and Vika less of that. And I like to watch players that are sincere and being themselves.

Wozniacki is certainly the world number 1, but few objective tennis fans would dispute that Kvitova is the player of the year owing to her far better showing in the most prestigious events.

It should win her the WTA and ITF player of the year awards. In all honesty Wozniacki has not done enough in the 5 biggest events to justify either award.

Matt01
Oct 30th, 2011, 08:07 PM
Wozniacki has already peaked. She will drop out of the top 5 next year, possibly out of the top 10. Kvitova will take #1 in Australia where she will easily better her quarterfinal result of last year and where Wozniacki will fall in the 4th round or sooner. Anyone on tour can beat her now.

I was impressed by Azarenka from early in the second set to the end of the match. In my opinion, she really stepped up her aggression and her willingness to hit with depth and spin to take control of points. I think she has the ability to do that even more, but it will take more conviction and confidence. The other worry is that, in matches like these vs. bigger hitters (Serena, Kvitova), it takes her quite a while to get situated and get her teeth into the match. She is too willing to start in "pusher" counterpuncher mode before upping her intensity. I have a feeling that that serve will be her liability throughout her entire career; it is unlikely at this age she will improve it significantly but I suppose there is still hope.

This was a very interesting YEC to be held on the heels of three surprise first-time GS champions. Petra proved why she is the best of those and why she is probably the best on tour when Kim and Serena are not in shape or in the mood. She will have a great chance to end 2012 as the world #1 and I'd be shocked if Azarenka didn't end in the Top 3. We'll see what those aging champions can come up with... would be nice to see them show down vs. Kvitova and Azarenka more in 2012 to see if a tour transition is occurring and for the right reasons.

This!

Petra's a sweet, polite, giggly girl off court, but a Assassin and winner on it. I think she's growing into the role; along with the fame, and that little losing she did after Wimbledon (along with the pressure), has made her even more passionate, cause she realizes how much she cherished/missed the winning. That was a tough period for her (by her recent standards anyway), and according to her coach "she now realizes that she's a little more well known now" than she was before.

My point (Petra rising to the occasion) is demonstrated by her stellar record against top 10 players, as well as her stellar finals record in tournaments (amongst other things), this year and throughout her career.

Congrats Petra, and keep up that fighting Spirit (even when you're playing uneven or not your best)!!!

Matt01
Oct 30th, 2011, 08:13 PM
When 3/4 of the tour can't even put the first volley in court consistently, Petra is almost god-like. But yes, she can certainly improve further on her volleying technique, definitely no Navratilova yet.


I'm giving her credit for coming so often to the net, and she played some exceptional volley stops in this tournament. However, as soon as she hits a normal volley (I mean not a volley stop) her technique gets ugly and the volley is very mediocre. She kinda reminds me of Sabatini here who most of the time also could only hit volley stops.

Sums up my feeling nicely. She´ll have to fight her inner Wozniacki. It´s not the power or depth really just the direction. She´s so much more comfortable just playing save into the middle. At least she is competitive with Kvitova. Those were three tight matches this year an all kinds of surfaces, but in the big moments 5-5 first set, and 0-0/0-1 3rd set it was Kvitova, who came up with the big shots in the rallies.

Real #1 was at her very best for the first 5 games, but from then on until the beginning of the third, she seemed to completely lose her timing and feel for the ball and was blasting pretty much every ball she tried to hit with any pace well out. Credit to Azarenka too for defending well, taking any scraps she could, and doing a much better job of returning Real #1's serve than anyone else has to date, from what I've seen. But, as expected, Real #1's champion mentality came to the rescue at the crunch; in the third set, she got just the right balance of controlled aggression while landing enough balls in court. She showed time and time again this week how she can scramble through matches even when below her best. I said after Wimbledon and I still believe now, there's no way this girl is finishing her career with less than 8 Slams, and she'll be a major contender at the Australian and US Open as well as Wimbledon for years to come (still not sure about RG though) - she's just got too much talent and such a rounded game.

Good match to end the season for the WTA too :yeah:

Perhaps you want to clarify why your using a post I made in a perfectly civil discussion in a player section as a punch line this thread, and you were trolling in that section as an extension to the bullshit and anti Ms Wozniacki vitriol you plaster GM with?

Following that perhaps (doubtful) you can submit a contrasting argument as to how this tournament doesn't perfectly suit her game, and go on to explain how it didn't almost come unstuck despite everything being advantageous to her high risk game as mentioned in my post. When you have done that feel free to point out how pjoding didn't play a part in disrupting the opponent (not that both player weren't doing their best to put viewers off), and how this match could in any way be considered an example of high quality play by both players from start to finish, and as such a demonstration of sustainable game and form?

Wozniacki only won 1 event in the second level,Indian Wells, which is the same as Kvitova who won Madrid.

Also, the reaction was pure gold. She truly loves the sport..no fuckery or tanking or pushing or whoring up tournaments or whatever bullshit these other impostors do.

Perhaps you want to clarify why your using a post I made in a perfectly civil discussion in a player section as a punch line this thread, and you were trolling in that section as an extension to the bullshit and anti Ms Wozniacki vitriol you plaster GM with?

Following that perhaps (doubtful) you can submit a contrasting argument as to how this tournament doesn't perfectly suit her game, and go on to explain how it didn't almost come unstuck despite everything being advantageous to her high risk game as mentioned in my post. When you have done that feel free to point out how pjoding didn't play a part in disrupting the opponent (not that both player weren't doing their best to put viewers off), and how this match could in any way be considered an example of high quality play by both players from start to finish, and as such a demonstration of sustainable game and form?

Finish off with another splattering of your much ridiculed "my new ranking system" the almost universal rejection of which started your pathetic little one man war inn the first place.

AMAZING!!!!!! Great job, Petra. You deserve this title and you also deserve the #1 ranking that will be coming your way next year.

It almost brings tears to my eyes to see a new star being born right in front of us. I took a liking to Petra ever since she got to the SF of Wimbledon in 2010 and I knew that she could do great things in the sport but never would I have thought it would all come this fast.

Also, the reaction was pure gold. She truly loves the sport..no fuckery or tanking or pushing or whoring up tournaments or whatever bullshit these other impostors do.

See you in Australia, Petra. :worship: I will be rooting for you, along with Maria.

:awww: so sweet.

While I agree about Dsnaders' ridiculous ranking system, your original quote was worth revisiting...

For all the hype Kvitova gets, she really isn't that great unless her game is on and the environment is perfect for her. She looks very beatable if you can put pressure on her, and I fully expect that to be illustrated next year... Her winning game just has too little variety and margin for error as it is now.

...if only for the "the environment is perfect for her" bit. How many players have won tournaments on all three surfaces at Mandatory Premier level or above this year? Or last year or the year before for that matter? How many current players have even won on all three surfaces at that level over their entire career?

Besides of trolling and hating, I can't see why would anyone compare the 6 titles Wozniacki won with the 6 from Petra. Just Wimbledon + YEC > all the other 6. :shrug:
And I'm not really a Kvitty fan. :shrug:

Omg at Matt desperate attempts to proove he's existence

It's understandable Cheatine retired and Carolina is becoming irrelevant
What gets attention than hating in Petra, so he can have a conversation with sum1 :hysteric:

He's like a little dog in mtf, :awww:

Indeed, Real #1 has won a bigger grasscourt title than Woz has ever won, a bigger claycourt title than Woz has ever won, and after today a bigger hardcourt title than Woz has ever won :bowdown:
