I understand why they do it: But when you hear the same player over and over again, try to sound excited, but ultimately like a rote, scripted clone, you get the picture.
Most players either say virtually nothing or are quite thoughtful. Petra tries to sound excited and thoughtful but says nothing.
As far as what she could say? That could be plenty. Here's one: in 2011 I was in great fitness, had some great practices, and didn't know what to expect, but looked forward to the year, and I excelled. This year, you could almost say I'm trying to have a bounce back year here, with some very tough competition. If I'm going to win here at Brisbane, I'm going to have play at a high level in all facets.
Another thing she can say very politely/happily is: 2011 was a great year for me indeed, but I look forward to an even better 2013, if things go my way. I love 2011; But Look forward to a better 2013.
The fixation on 2011, almost sounds like she doesn't expect to have a better year than that again (or at least she doesn't plan to).
It's all psychological. Don't sound like you're using 2011 as a crutch.
