This is all true.
However, many times Petra is a CONFIDENCE Player and her level of confidence is determined by her level of play.
Sometimes you JUST want to hear Petra speak very strongly about herself, just so WE and PETRA knows she has SELF belief. She doesn't have to say anything crazy. They're ways of doing/saying it. What is Petra's base feeling before she ever enters a court?
It just makes you wonder if Petra really has that believe in herself--if she's not playing well to overcome and highly achieve (especially against a top flight opponent)?
