Petra is playing her very first WTA event in Prague.

Her draw :

Vankova Katerina vs. Ivanova Ekaterina

Tough draw to be qualified -especially Domi, but at least, she will get some experience.

I can't wait to see her on tour now, I have never watched her played to be honest. I admit that it seems quite stupid to support a player that you don't know ... but she deserves it !
Go Petra !

The good news is that if she wins the title, she may have a chance to play the US Open's qualies ... if she can afford the travel of course :o :tape: . She always plays in Czech Republic, that's why I say that.

Iceland

She is not on the lists of the next ITF events. I hope it will be enough to play the US Open qualies ...
She had a great run in Zlin, she can be proud of herself. We will hear much of her during the next weeks for sure.

Tatiana Bua (ARG) v (wc)Laura Slater (GBR)

Petra Martic (CRO) v (Q)Kristy Frilling (USA)

Pretty much, yes :)

why didn't she play at roland garros juniors? :shrug:

:unsure:

I think she was too low in rankings to make into RG MD and so she preferred to play challengers in her home country instead.
Petra is only ranked 78th in juniors and back then her senior ranking was outside top-300, so it did not help either.
She rarely plays in juniors circuit. Roehampton is only her fourth juniors tournament in more than a year. But she won all three previous tournaments :p

Petra won the title on a W/O. I don't know if she has been accepted in Wimby's MD. She was supposed to play the qualies being the 2nd ALT ... :confused: She probably is ... otherwise it would be a shame ! I think she can go very far there ! :)

First round completed :). Petra def J. Rae 64 62. She must have felt a little bit tense because the scoreline is not very impressive. Still the job is done :).
With those stats, we can reasonnably say she is an aggressive player :yeah:.

* 8 aces but 5 DFs.
* winning % after a first serve : 89%

Keep going Petra :yeah:.

Still excellent week for Petra.

Iceland
Oct 28th, 2007, 03:11 PM
Petra lost 26 67 (7) but came very very close, Malek always pushed her to hit another shot and generally, Petra made the error first. Malek barely hit a winner, but was too consistent for Petra. Her poor slices completely cancelled Petra's game :sad:. If she dared coming more to the net and observing Malek's position on court, it would have been different. So many wrong choices today... :oToo bad she lost this match otherwise she would have gotten a title + MD feed-up in Gold Coast...

At least, Petra fought well at the end. I would only say that her shape is not totally perfect, she could work on it during the year off.
Good luck in Minsk and congrats on this great week!

dybbuk
Oct 28th, 2007, 06:31 PM
Unfortunate loss. She could have won, but she made too many errors. She was awful tactically too, she kept getting caught in the middle of the court. Malek kept slicing and slicing, Petra would have control of the point, then either hit a winner or error. Her shots weren't there today. All week she has been nailing her backhand down the line, today it was floating long. Still, an amazing week she should be proud of. She really showed her potential.
