Well, she'll first play a qualifiyer, then(most likely) Barthel, who she's beaten this year before and after that there might be Stevens, who she nearly beat at Wimbledon(lost 8-10 in the final set) and that was on the surface(grass) she just doesn't like at all.

To me it'll be more about how her body holds up and how much she trusts it, then anything else.

Still, first things first and let's hope that she can make it out of the first round at least.

Well i'd rather would "see" (i guess we won't see much :rolleyes:) her win because shes playing well herself and not because of a crappy opponent :lol: So i hope she'll play well :)

But definitely an interesting match, i dont expect her to win, she's for sure still not extremely stable.

KatjaS
Jul 30th, 2013, 10:18 PM
Petko being brilliant would of course be the best outcome, but I'm perfectly willing to take an easy win because her opponent is mentally somewhere else. :bounce:

It's impossible to predict, it could be a blowout either way or a close 3 setter.

She is a good clay court player, played a great match against Venus last year. But what I saw yesterday against Puchkova was not that convincingly. Also she made her first WTA QF on hardcourt here.

I hope and guess that Andrea will win this match.

matthias
Aug 4th, 2013, 02:23 PM
she is 2:4 in finals,
Kvitova and Halep has been on fire, Henin in s´Hertogenbosch was already surprising to push her into a 3rd set
they only final she really blew was Beijing :sobbing: (at least my opinion)

Carsten
Aug 4th, 2013, 02:35 PM
they only final she really blew was Beijing :sobbing: (at least my opinion)

She did. But even that was against a well playing Radwanska. Petko was amazing too but her level just dropped at 4:2 3rd set. Against Henin she could have won as well because she was leading in the final set, but of course it's always special to have a big name like that on the other side and she wasn't really experienced that time.

Against Kvitova in Brisbane she was playing to passive but Kvitova was great, and in Nueremberg the final was already amazing and Halep was superb too.


Today she definitely will have a good chance if she's playing well because she usually is the better player, but Rybarikova of course is on a roll and you never know how Petko will cope with her different style of play (and maybe tiredness because of the "amazing" scheduling :rolleyes:). For sure she will have to return well and make Rybarikova run as much as possible.
But a loss wouldn't be too disappointing of course, i'm already happy she made the final at this stage, some months ago if someone would have told me she'll have reached two WTA finals by now, i would have taken it.

matthias
Aug 4th, 2013, 02:38 PM

I know everyone will be sad after today, but I am very happy to see Andrea back in finals. She's going forward, it takes time, but she is heading in the right direction. Making the final is a good result this week.

Secondly I'd like to say her interview in the trophy ceremony was outstanding. Andrea is so thoughtful and a natural with the microphone. She is kind to everyone, witty and very cool headed. Anyone who can give an interview like that after a tough loss in a final (in a foreign language I may add) has outstanding character in my book.

The future is looking a lot brighter for Andrea than just a mere couple of months ago. Good luck to her :).

That's the better Pliskova sister, right? Still, if she can keep her Washington form she should qualify.

Pliskova is in horrendous form. Andrea should qualify.

I follow the Pliskovas. The only thing predictable is their unpredictability.

Still, Andrea should make the main draw!

in so eine Draw gibt es keine wirklich leichten Qualifier Plätze,
aber Kleybanova (so leid sie mir tut) wäre schon der jackpot, vorallem ist eine Kerber auch nicht unschlagbar zur Zeit.

Cibulkova wäre wohl das schwerste Los
Hantuchova wäre auch nicht sooooooooo schlecht, auch wenn man nie weiss wie sie gerade spielt
Venus, ist ne Wundertüte, aber generell keine schlechte section

Definitely a nice spot in the draw. H2H against Hantuchova is good, but Hantuchova´s aggressive ROS (much like BMS: H2H 1-2) will be a problem, if she has an on-day. Vinci is a good match-up. Petko can handle the slice and apply pressure to it with her cc bh. She can run around her own bh to rip the fh into open space dtl, when she gets a weak bh slice from Vinci. Only time they played Pektovic won 6-4 6-0.

She won a tough 3-setter. :D

Scoreline looks comfortable in the third, but the decisive moment came early. After failing to break in an epic first game, she managed to hold in an equally epic service game of her own and apparently broke Dani's back with it.

Just look at those first 2 games:

just came home
i followed a bit the Livescoring on my iphone
at least she gave a good fight
Vinci´s game is tricky, and yes, she beat her before
but Vinci improved since her last match
and Petko was a better player back then
so it already a good since she gave a top15 a good fight
step by step
hopefully she will get a good first round at the USO

I think the draw isn't that bad :) Kvitova on outdoor HC is beatable if Petko is playing well and then you never know, she just beat Barthel easily and Larsson/Riske and Pironkova outside of grass aren't that great.

But as long as she wins R1 it's fine since she has nothing to defend anyway :) And Jovanovski is a good opponent for R1.

that' s true, even though Petra struggled these days, she's still so strong for Petko.
Petko is on a rise ATM, but not good enough to beat these top players. So get 100 points from US open and give a great fight in 2nd round is a realistic goal.

Of course she is tough, but Petko could have played another seed already in R1 or she couöd be in the section of Serena, Azarenka or Radwanska, so it could have been much worse. Kvitova is always beatable on Outdoor HC :shrug: Of course Petko has to play well, and thats really not guaranteed, too, of course.
