Good win Petra! :D
It was such a close match all the way, many chances wasted on both sides.

Next probably against Wickmayer again!
Good luck!

Well done Martic now hopefully you will play baly so that someone lower ranked can be in the 4th round :)

Good win, Petra. Looking for a repeat of their matchup with Wicks in Paree. Competition was very good.

Bad loss Aravane. :o especially after a pretty positive Indian Wells. She still struggles with consistency which isn't really a surprise all things considered.
Good luck for the clay court season. (already! :help:)

I saw set one.. She consistently hits to the opponents hitting zones and can't create angles. I also recorded some points on my iPhone. I will upload on YouTube..

She extended the Indian Wells champion to 7-6 6-3. I say that was a pretty good performance.

Anyway, from where I'm sitting it looks to me like Petra is simply getting better and better and quite rapidly too. I like this girl a lot and it's going to be a lot of fun watching her rise up the rankings. :bounce:

Martic is underpowered, granted, but also very clever; she plays like a real, old skool counterpuncher. She's very lightly built and thus moves well, defends even better, feeds off her opponent's pace (which she gets plenty of from players such as Rezai or Wickmayer) and redirects it in the most surprising ways. Her sneaky cleverness is very reminiscent of prime Cornet.

Wel I can tell you that she never ever reminded me of Cornet! :tape:
I usualy agree with what Corswandt says, but this time definitely not! :lol:
Petra has much more variaty then Cornet and is not even 20% consistent as Cornet in her prime! :lol:
Only thing what is right is that Petra finds it hard to create power on her own so she likes playing against players who do play like that!

Edit: Well I just saw he only compared cleverness with Cornet and not the game! :yeah: :lol: Though I never knew Cornet was very clever. :lol:

That all sounded very promising until the last line...

Cornet folded under the crushing weight of unrealistic expectations from the French fans and media, and also suffered from the limitations of her game being exposed. Martic won't have to deal with the first problem, but may face the second sooner than some expect. Szavay took about 10 seconds to figure her out at their Paris GDF match.

Petra has much more variaty then Cornet and is not even 20% consistent as Cornet in her prime! :lol:

Martic is a very good defender and quite consistent when she's given the chance to merely guide the ball that her more powerful opponents are blasting. She only makes errors when she's forced to generate pace on her own by actually hitting the ball.

Edit: Well I just saw he only compared cleverness with Cornet and not the game! :yeah: :lol: Though I never knew Cornet was very clever. :lol:

She had great court sense. Watch the legendary match vs Safina - at least the part before Cornet froze. She was consistently outsmarting Safina, and her anticipation was unbelievable.

Actually both Cornet and Martic seems to be a solid players with a good watchable game for me:shrug:

Unfortunately Cornet has a problem elswhere:o

And when I compare Martic´s games with some players from TOP 20...:o...she definitely has a weapon(s)

Szavay took about 10 seconds to figure her out at their Paris GDF match.

Well they both had same coach once, so not that strange! :lol:

Martic is a very good defender and quite consistent when she's given the chance to merely guide the ball that her more powerful opponents are blasting. She only makes errors when she's forced to generate pace on her own by actually hitting the ball.

Well I wouldn't say she is quite consistent yet even then! :lol:
Yep when she is forced to generate her own pace she makes many UEs (against Wozniacki at US Open in defeat 6/1 6/0 she made +40 UEs :spit:), but hopefully that part of her game can be improved at least that much that she doesn't give away matches herself against pushers.
I am intersted to see if she can somehow deal wit that problem.

She had great court sense. Watch the legendary match vs Safina - at least the part before Cornet froze. She was consistently outsmarting Safina, and her anticipation was unbelievable.

Oh ok, I haven't watched that match!
