Re: Nadia Petrova 2013
When Nadia looked completely down and out, she goes and has a knockout year in 2012, getting back to #12 in the world as 30 years old.
2012 12
2011 29

This is her draw in Sydney:

(1)A.Radwanska v BYE
Dellacqua v Q
Paszek v Jankovic
Vinci v (8)Petrova

An interesting draw. She has a tough first round against Roberta, who Nadia is 3:2 against h2h. Their last meeting was in Bulgaria last fall, where Nadia beat her, but just barely--64 in the third.

If she gets by Roberta, she should get to the QF, where she'll have the opportunity to upset Aga, as she did in Tokyo.

ETA: Apparently she's no longer with Ricardo Sanchez, who helped coach her to a great 2012 season. This info definitely thickens the plot...

He claims Nadia will play good in first three months of 2013, but then she will start with new coach and he hopes they'll be good partners like they were. Sanchez said he managed to relive self confidence in Nadia so he hopes she will be good player in the future, since she is very talented and has big potential to be Top 10. He desribes Nadia as great person who is a bit shy but when you get to now her, you realize she is a great friend.

Re: Nadia Petrova 2013
Well, the breakup between Nadia and Ricardo Sanchez is weird. Nice words from him though. He sounds optimistic for start of 2013. Let`s hope he is right. You could see in last matches of 2012 that Nadia played better. Very good job from him that he brought her self-confidence back. A bit sad that she lost her belief in herself. Hope now the doubts are finally gone. Of course Nadia is very talented and has big potential. But she must show this on court, in her matches. Good luck in Sydney. Vinci has nothing to hurt Nadia. Everything depends on Nadia. If she plays well she will win.

Lost to Roberta, 57 57.

I understand she hasn't won a AO warmup match since 2006, so maybe we can't look too much into this loss :unsure: Good luck to her at the AO! If she does poorly, maybe she can then hook back up with Ricardo!

Re: Nadia Petrova 2013
Nadia I have no words anymore :facepalm:

Served for 1st set at 5-4. Then lost next 7 games to 5-7 0-4 :o Very weak. Such a headcase :rolleyes:

Re: Nadia Petrova 2013
I'm not concerned - Nadia's form the week before a slam means nothing.

She and Srebotnik are into the doubles QF's.

Re: Nadia Petrova 2013
I'm feeling nervous about Nadia at the AO tbh...people are expecting good results from her, but I just don't know anymore...:unsure:
