I still think she with her superior in her generation power and talent will be a more accomplished player than Pusherenka , who will always struggle with her "lack of talent". But Petra really needs her "Ivan Lendl" , who will push her career....
I actually kind of agree with your post. I don't agree with the 'no-champion' comment, as she is about 9-2 in WTA finals, which means she definitely steps it up in the biggest matches and likes winning titles.
As for the Lendl comment, she allegedly texts/consults frequently with her compatriot Pavel Složil, who won the Golden Slam with Steffi Graf.
Anyway we'll see, nobody has a crystal ball.
