Draw is done
and she will face

Angelique Kerber
unfortunally she missed to be seeded by one spot
Bartoli who was in doubt is also there, because she was PlayerRepresentative

here the Draw section of Andrea

Kanepi(12) - Dushevina
Kerber - Petkovic
Qualifier - Kirilenko
Jankovic(6) - bye

It does happen quite often that player A loses to a player B when facing him again very soon. Let's see if Kerrbie finds a way to beat Petko this time - I think she needs the points more.

will be again a tough match, but i expect Kerber to win this time.
But maybe one of the seeded players will pull out before the first ball is played, then Petko could move into a seeded spot.

and yes, Kerber could use the points too.

oh no... this is a bad joke :p :lol: Actually I think Angie is better indoors than outdoors so let's see. Hopefully Andy was able to recover at least a bit.

Tough first 2 rounds. If she wins them she should win her third match. But shes clearly very tired, maybe a R1 loss and prepare for Doha wouldnt be too bad.

LightsOut!

Bad draw but especially bad for Angie... she could've collected some points either at Paris or Dubai :hug:

Seems like Andy will skip Doha :) At least thats what she is saying here: http://andreapetkovic.de/node/704 (for those who can understand French)
She says she'll play Dubai, having two weeks of practice afterwards and then travel to the US.
She also says she didn't feel at 100% physically in Paris, being always one step too late.

One set apiece, almost nothing seperating these two. They just know each other too well. :lol:

BTW, I never understand Petkovic, Lisicki and Kerber when they get coached.^^ Quite frustrating as I'm German but they of course sepak their native tongues with their parents or coaches. :lol:

But Lisickis father always speaks German when he coaches :p And I think for Petko or Lisicki German is more or less their native tongue I would say. Not sure about Kerber though :lol:

Kerber speaks German (Ich habe "Komm jetzt" beim Match in Hobart rausgehört) when she's talking to herself on the court

Phewww, from *4:4 in the 2nd to 4-6 and 0-3* in the 3rd :help:

Good that she crossed herself twice after the match ball....that win was also Angie's achievement.

At least another success against a former bogey opponent, her fitness has definitively helped.

well done Andrea :woohoo:
such a rollercoaster-macth, at least for me
since i checked just the score from time to time

tomorrow vs. Kanepi, tough match, seems like Kanei is in good ... (don´t wanna call it "shape" ;))

[Comment From Jure ]
Bemerkenswert das Gespräch zwischen Petkovic und Trainer nach dem 2. Satz. Da sagte Petko: ich weiß nicht wie ich spielen soll, wieso muß ich immer gegen sie spielen. Wieso? Und habe kein Plan wie ich gewinnen soll. Da reagierte ihr Trainier mit: doch du wirst heute gewinnen. Nur weiterhin offensiv spielen und nicht auf Fehler warten. Sie kann nicht so lange so ein level mitmachen....

klingt als wäre Kerber trotz der beiden Siege in Linz und Paris noch immer ein "Angstgegner" ist
Hoffen wir mal das der 3.Sieg in folge ihr noch mehr Selbstbewusstsein für zukünftige Duelle gibt.

2-3* to 6-3 in the 2nd, *0-3 to 3-3* in the 3rd. It's not enough though. :awww:

Get a good rest at home, you totally deserve it. :hug:

I thought her next tournament is Doha (Sources one (http://www.andreapetkovic.de/tennis/matchcenter) & two (http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=18868594&postcount=1)).

she has indicated in an interview last week that she is only going to play dubai, but no confirmation yet.

Not very surprising loss. She doesn't get the game together at the moment to beat players like Kanepi.

IMO she's physically ok, but it's no drama, given the events at the AO, that she needs some time at home for relaxing her mind and refocusing. In Indian Wells/ Miami she has to show better performances again, if she wants to keep up with the top players.

Andrea :hug: Hopefully some break now for her.

Obviously a pity she lost, but the girl does need a few days off. So at least this allows her to do that :)

which was better today, has won.

My opinion is they should play Doha.
There they can score well.Many player are very tired.

How far does she need to go at Indian Wells to make Top 20? Is that possible?

Feb 26th, 2011, 09:39 AM
Petkorazzi should be in semi final, if she want to be in top10 before Indian Wells :D Possible, but unlikely :)

mk27
Feb 26th, 2011, 03:24 PM
How far does she need to go at Indian Wells to make Top 20? Is that possible?

She will need at least 200 points, but has only 1st round points to defend from last year.
So it is possible but she will have to reach the quarterfinal in Indian Wells for a place in the top 20.

matthias
Feb 27th, 2011, 03:38 PM
well, she has enough time to reach the top20
so it´s not a must to reach them already after IW
she has not much to defend and so
IW and Miami is for sure a good opportunity to earn some good points and getting closer to the top20

My room overlooks Red Rock. Stunning view. Steffi coming in to hit with Petkovic today. How motivating is that?
