Good thing you didn't read Petra's comment about going for the title
Actually, it's kinda big event, on women's side there would be a lot of famous players outside of Czech gang
Problem that this is not a exho, extraliga treated like a serious event but Petra around that time not really psychically ready to play 100% tennis, last year she pushed herself beyond what should be during preparations before tennis seasons and basically screwed her whole 2012 season because of that. If she stays in bounds not pushing herself too far, i guess everything would be ok. Winning title could be one more confidence push to play good in 2013 but Petra should put her health first by avoiding last year mistake
Yes, you are right. Last year's problems with her foots after the Czech extra-league final affected her playing in Australia despite having relatively solid, but not extra persuasive wins in AUS - let's remember her "so-so-matches" with Dulgheru and Carla Suarez Navarro (she was 0:2, 0:30 in the 3rd set 2nd round in AO against CSN but still winning). Hope, the same scenario will not be repated at the beginning of the new 2013 season...
