It doesnt mean much, at their best they're all dangerous to anyone. The problem with Petra is as soon she is not near her best she becomes completely useless. She needs to find a lil more consistency in her game.
Tbh I also think tha the pressure got to her, everyone was expecting her to do great and after a great season in 2011 it wasn't easy to confirm. Last year, no one knew who she was she wasn't really the fave to win such big titles etc..... It clearly helped her to beat Sharapova at Wimbledon and win the YEC.
I feel like the same thing is gonna happen to Victoria, even though mentally she seems stronger and tennis wise a lot more consistent, she really surprised everyone this year and wasn't the fave to realize such things. Its never easy to confirm, this is why I think that Vika is going to get trough what Petra went trough this year.
