Super Start für Petko: 6:3, 5:7, 7:5 gegen Babos, war ja nicht gerade ein Freilos !

Damit ist auch die Teilnahme an der AO-Quali gesichert. Jeder Sieg ist wichtig für sie gegen den großen Rankingabsturz.

Willkommen zurück, Andrea ! :cheer: :bounce:

Let`s keep this Thread for rest of year (or at least until US Open has finished). Would be stupid to open a Thread for each single tournament :p

She lost 64 61 :hug:

No problem, no one really would have expected her to beat a top 15-palyer in her 2nd match back.

Now she should work hard on what didn't work today and then we'll see waht happens in NY :)

From GM:
I was there and got to watch it live. It was pretty obvious that Petko is still rusty, she just couldn't get much consistent depth on the ball and it was playing right into Pome's hands. She also didn't serve particularly well (until the last game where she cracked 2 aces, I guess she had nothing to lose at that pt :lol:) Actually the match was really in Domi's hands because whenever she timed the ball correctly, she was winning the points. There was a stretch in the first set where Pome literally couldn't get a ball in the court and that's why the first set looked closer than it is :hug: Once Pome found her range again, it was pretty much NID.


Successful tournament for Petko anyway :hug: Hope she has a good draw at the USO. :yeah: I really wanted to see her do the Petkodance at the end :lol:
Agreed. :yeah:

good draw, r2 should be possible, but can't imagine she will beat bartoli :sad:

good draw, r2 should be possible, but can't imagine she will beat bartoli :sad:I think she can. Bartoli has been in a massive slump and Errani routined her in New Haven.

Petkovic
Aug 24th, 2012, 08:27 AM
Not a bad draw Petko! Bartoli is definately one of the weakest seeds, so third round should very well be possible. Possible third round Hantuchova-Pavly, will be tougher. Anyway, super glad she's playing again. Try to win some matches!

Not excepting anything this year. Just second tournament so every win is a bonus :)
Even Oprandi can be tough already. She has a difficult game for a lot of players.

schade, da war der tiebreak nochmal drin im zweiten. die einstellung hat jedoch gestimmt, da kann sich jule wirklich ne scheibe von abschneiden. hoffentlich bleibt sie jetzt mal verletzungsfrei, das is das wichtigste.

I got a somewhat technical question: Because she finished top 10 last year, Andrea can only play 1 MM tournament in the second half of 2012, right? Is she allowed to compete in ITF tournaments though? She could pick up some very well needed points there but I'm not even sure whether she can possibly play those events...

No, not in this year.

Andrea hat ALLES verlernt :bigcry:

War einfach herzzerreißend sie so zu sehen. Scheiß Verletzung :fiery:

Sie hat sich bemüht, sehr gut gekämpft. Aber ist jetzt praktisch wieder bei Null. Das wird ein langer Weg zurück. Keine Matchpraxis. Die Bälle oft viel zu kurz. Der Aufschlag sehr schwach, nur ein Einwurf. Damit kann man keinen Blumentopf gewinnen. Das hat einem schon wehgetan das zu sehen. Andrea brauch einfach Zeit, und viel Geduld.

Dorien.
Aug 29th, 2012, 04:45 AM
Like I thought a tough draw :hug: She just needs some match rhythm. :hug:
It really sucks only one MM tournament and now ITF :(
Hopefully she choose for Luxembourg :angel:

„Du schüttelst den Kopf und denkst: Wie kannst du gegen diese Spielerinnen verlieren“, sagte Petkovic, „und dann realisierst du erst: Das wird noch eine ganz lange Zeit so gehen. Wochen und Monate.“



„Ich fühle mich hilflos, etwa so, als müsste ich noch einmal meine Karriere ganz von vorne beginnen – wie damals mit 16 Jahren.“ Alle Automatismen seien verloren gegangen, alles Selbstbewusstsein und alle Sicherheit dazu: „Ich hätte nicht gedacht, dass es so schwer werden würde“, sagte sie, „da war schon die Hoffnung, dass man auf dem Fundament des letzten Jahres aufbauen könnte.“
