I'm putting that on a bumper sticker
You'd be surprised at the amount of people that treat pee-wee T-ball like a professional sport.
I did have that thought earlier, like maybe Petra needs to either snap out of it and start beating people the way she used to, or she needs a bunch of tough losses so that she realizes she should be winning and steps up.
And I say this 100% as a fan: Maria and her friggin' cakewalk draws.
