I thought Petrafying Power would be a good name :p
in the first poll, we had Petrafying Forest....it received little support.
I wish I can include everyone's suggestions but TF poll has a limit of 10 choices. Sorry.

Hey Guys. I don't mean to sound Naive. But am I missing something with "Hello Kvitty".

I have nothing against it, and it's a fine name. I just wanted to know. Is this supposed to be a take on "Hello Dolly", or "Here Kitty, Kitty, etc. (or is it exactly what it is/sounds?" Just curious.

That's interesting. I hadn't noticed she uses "pojd" when on court. I thought you guys meant it like 'Come on Petra! in which case it would be nonsensical in Czech. To my understanding, 'Pojd' is something you would use to have a little child 'come' to you (Come on Petra. Come to me Petra.). To cheer someone on Czechs use 'Do toho' which means something more like 'Get going! Get moving!'. I think we need one of our Czech friends to help us here. I don't know enough to give an expert opinion. :confused:

I teach English to corporate clients here in Prague. I'll be sure to ask them today for some definitive answers about the usage of 'pojd'. One of them in the afternoon is a longtime tennis player. I'll ask her about the on court usage too. And, I can't wait to show her the autographs I got! Today should be fun.

Okay guys, after consulting with my Czech colleagues and students I can give you a definitive answer to the 'Pojd Petra' question. Basically it breaks down like this: (1) In it's main form it's used mostly for calling someone to follow or come to them - as in directing a child, 'Pojd' Petro.' (pronunciation = poid-yuh Pe-tro. (2) Surprisingly, to me, yes, you can use it as Petra does on court to motivate herself. Same phrase-same pronunciation. (3) However, you would never use it to cheer someone on. For that you would shout 'Do toho Petro!'. Which basically means 'Go Petra go!' or 'Come on Petra!' Are we clear? lol

It appears so. In that case we should add an exclamation point to it: 'Pojd' Petro!'. Otherwise, it's nonsensical. It needs to have some oomph to it to give it the real feeling. Whatever we choose should respect the true Czech meaning of the phrase otherwise it just sounds stupid. Almost, more offensive than Hello Kvitty to some. It's their language not ours and we should respect that fact.

Hi Everyone :wavey:

Sorry for hijacking this thread to introduce myself but apparently I am not able to start new threads yet and I really wanted to post and say hi.

I have enjoyed womens tennis for over ten years but after Davenport and Mauresmo retired I didn't really follow anyone in particular and went through a phase of not really watching much at all. I noticed Petra at this years Wimbledon (and then remembered that I had actually seen her in 2010 and liked her) but this year I became a real fan :). Don't you love that feeling when you first become a fan of someone. I am not jumping on the post-Wimbledon bandwagon, I am genuinely blown away by Petra's natural talent and sweet and humble personality.

I have watched a lot of Petra's highlights on YouTube and am more impressed the more I see.

This poll result is accepted for now - convinced the voting was skewed by visitors/trolls who may not be true fans but curious by the launch of her sub-forum & GS win. TF GM threads are a good barometer of loyalty & would question the legitimacy of some of the names that came forward in the earlier (deleted) threads. With a fan base conceivably set to increase, the poll needs to be conducted at intervals to check if it reflects the wishes of the enlarged fan base or Petra’s own wishes per se.

Case in Point - Kuznetsova goes out of her way now to correct people when she is addressed as "Kuzy". There may come a time when Petra her self may do like wise with "Kvitty" or “GOAT” or “xName” that is in play.

I have to say that "Hello Kvitty" is not a very suitable name for a forum dedicated to someone so tall, dignified, and strong. The actual Hello Kitty is small, round, silly, and not at all awe-inspiring. The only value it has is humor, being a pun.

If you needed a pun, I'd have suggested something else. "The Petra-fied Forest" would work. Wozniacki certainly got Petrafied at Wimbledon 2010, as did Wickmayer and Sharapova this year!

Well, no wonder. I can't speak about Russian but in Czech 'kozy' means 'tits' informally. Presuming 'kuzy' is linguistically similar to 'kozy' you can see her problem with it being used. I still don't understand the whole 'kvitty' or 'goat' thing at all. Equally stupid sounding or meaning. I would only call her Petra or Pet'o (pron. pet-yo) or Petro if I spoke to her face to face again.

I understand Petra is a woman, but for the hetero male participants on this board it comes across so girly, and cheesy (now that I'm reminded of that cat "Hello Kitty", the pun it came from). Oh well!! That's why we voted. :tape: :confused: :wavey: Hello Kvitty!

Pojd Kvitty!

I'm one of the ones who doesn't like that name either. It's not that I hate small cartoon kittens, but that it just doesn't seem to fit Petra at all.

Oh well, it's just a name. This last process was tedious enough- it would be a pain to go through another renaming contest.

I have to say that "Hello Kvitty" is not a very suitable name for a forum dedicated to someone so tall, dignified, and strong. The actual Hello Kitty is small, round, silly, and not at all awe-inspiring. The only value it has is humor, being a pun.

If you needed a pun, I'd have suggested something else. "The Petra-fied Forest" would work. Wozniacki certainly got Petrafied at Wimbledon 2010, as did Wickmayer and Sharapova this year!

"Petrafied" lol that's really clever :)

There was Petra-fied Forest in the first poll. I think it only got 1 vote. :p

Petra's Official Facebook Site Launched 21st July 2011

Petra Kvitová http://www.facebook.com/petrakvitovaofficial

Calling time on this current inept TF sub-forum name so that Petra facebook fans (25,406) & Petra TF fans can integrate, cross fertilise the Petra Facebook Site & Petra TF sub-forum site under a recognisable & rallying name

I wish it wasn't all in Czech.

It's only a matter of time before it goes bi-lingual due to her global fanbase - the Czech launch is understandable considering her language skills & her entire support team being Czech based
