Draw is out:

Petko has a bye in round 1. Plays Tomljanovic/qualifier in r2. R3 against Pennetta/Vinci/Benesova. Caro probably awaits in R4 if she can get that far!

Would have given better draws, as Wozniacki should be definitely the end and therefore not much pts to gain.

So a win against Pennetta would be pretty nice.

snoodtastic
Mar 22nd, 2011, 12:59 AM
Petko leads Pennetta 2-1 in H2H so I'm looking forward to that one. And should she get that far, it would be great to see her vs. Caro, especially since Caro is so fit. Marion lost steam in the third set at IW, and Andrea credits her improvements to her fitness and being able to rely on her body more. If she can retrieve every ball and is willing to be aggressive and go for winners, I'd like to see how she does against "the Danish wall."

LightsOut!

I said on a German forum that Wozniacki is at 95% all the time, and you feel you got a chance when you are at 100%, but you will have streaks where you are not and then Wozniacki usually wears you down. But this time around it's Wozniacki being inconsistent and Petkovic not giving away too much except for one bad service game.

But still a looooong way to go.

Stevecw
Mar 28th, 2011, 06:00 PM
Now 0-2 down :( But 3 bps here on Caros serve so maybe a break back chance.

Wow, compare this to the Kuznetsova match at Roland Garros. Petko was up there, too. And then she crumbled. Not even a year later and she didn't crumble. It was a strong performance mentally. Yes Wozniacki was off, but you have to take advantage of it! Petko did. :hug:

Petkovic is the first German to beat a No.1 in a full match since Steffi Graf beat Martina Hingis in the 1999 French Open final. She is also the first German to reach the quarterfinals here since Anke Huber did it 10 years ago in 2001.


Strong win, Andrea! :worship:

Caro looked very, very, very tired. Too much tennis the last days/weeks.
Have not seen her play this bad in a long time. She desperately needs a break. No energy left. Andrea was much fresher.

Andrea war zur richtigen Zeit am richtigen Ort. Freut mich für sie.

That was a fantastic match! It was a total roller coaster at the end. Just when I conceded to the idea of defeat, Andrea would pull out some crazy winner out of nowhere and keep going. Wowza.

Now she's Top 20 for sure. I'm thinking the semis will be a rematch against Masha, who will be seeking revenge. It would be SWEET if Andrea could make the finals, but I'm really just happy she made it this far and knocked down a #1 and a former #1.

Sharapova was just too good in the end -- although I must criticize Petko for giving up a little too early. She was staying with Maria throughout the second set, but she was done after the first break in the third. Quite understandable given how Maria imposed on the court though.

It was a great week for her. And she showed the Australian Open wasn't a fluke.

Carsten
Mar 31st, 2011, 07:29 PM
Well, that was a strange match, probably she had some problems in 3rd set. I really want to know what she says about that match.

But Sharapova also played extremely well towards the end.

matthias

Andrea missed a few chances early in the 2nd set, and Maria played very well
so Andrea really didnīt know what to do, and then it was done
but at least she avoided the double bagle

great Tournament for Andrea, and she will learn from this match for sure.
top20 is also another step to the top

snoodtastic
Mar 31st, 2011, 08:05 PM
Crazy crazy game. Thank god it wasn't a double bagel! Maria bageled her, but Andrea had a game or break point in every single game they played in the 2nd. So it was much closer than the scoreline suggests. It was disheartening to see Andrea cry, but I hope she can take the positives out of this one. An excellent tourney run, and achievements I didn't even expect to see. Well done, Petko.
