Eastbourne 2011
 
Venus Williams vs. Andrea Petkovic

If Venus is back at 100%, she will win this, she is the best grass court player on the tour. But then, she has been out forever. Not sure what Petko can do, but I don't like her to go into Wimbledon with one preparation match.

The 4th quarter is just mind boggling. A whole host of in-form players + Vee. The sisters' return might throw a wrench in a few player's Wimbly prep from the looks of it. :tape:

I really don't like this :o I don't think that Venus would make a comeback if she wasn't 100%.

Venus and Serena are always in shape when they come back, so i donīt expect Petko to win this.
:(
But hopefully she can learn from Venus on grass

Match about to start. Good luck Petko Petkorazzi!

Re: Eastbourne 2011
 
Petko lost 5-7 7-5 3-6
unfortunally Petko wasnīt able to break back at 1-3 in third set (15-40, and another BP at AD) but i havenīt seen the match and so i canīt judge if she wasted or Venus just served well or played good facing Breakpoint.
But good fight from Petko, itīs not shame to go out against Venus on gras, even when it was her first match since January

Re: Eastbourne 2011
 
yeah really not a shame to lose to venus on grass... it was the worst possible draw to get especially when you're seeded :(

Sad for Petkovic, hope this one match is enough preparation for Wimbledon.

Re: Eastbourne 2011
 
I don't even mind her losing to Vee; it's just all the stupid comments from the Petko haters that annoy me. Some of them act like she murders puppies for fun in her free time. I don't know what their beef is.

Except the beef from the Dutch folks. But that's expected. :oh:


Well, whatever. Hoping for a decent Wimby draw at least. This draw was for the dogs anyway.

last year she reached sīHertogenbosch final and lost 1st round at Wimbledon.
imo at Wimbledon you need a good draw more then at any other Tournaments.
there are some really weak Grass-Court players out there, and some really tough ones (Lisicki as example)
i donīt have high expections for Wimbledon, but a 3rd round would be nice, but it all depends on the Draw
Sabine in 1st round would be really bad:mad:
