If she gets any snide questions from French press at next year's RG,Petra can just say,'Foulez-vous'....but she's probably too sweet for that

Thanks Lufa.

And Petra's still too nice.

She needs more of a full time killer instinct (regarding her matches and opponents).

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Wow, it's quite dramatic, isn't it? (I know I'm one to talk about being dramatic )

@Excelsior: True, but if you're not naturally aggressive or super competitive off court, it can be difficult to switch that on at will.

WHAT'S NEXT? WTA NO. 8, PETRA KVITOVA
Still the future of the game?

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

I haven't read the article yet. But I hate Steve Tignor's writing regarding Petra most times.

He's so hard on her (even wrongly assessed her game when many of his own commentators were telling him for months otherwise, till he relented).

So many times Tignor likes to write for dramatic effect, instead of tennis sensibility. I don't think he watches as many matches as he pretends to. For example, he didn't know Petra could volley last year (Pre or post Wimby), though he was always quick to criticize, doubt her. Like I said, it was the commentators on his articles--who sent him Youtube videos, before he finally saw the light and publicly relented.

Ironically, Petra actually deserves some criticism now. So I fear to read the article (unless Steve is in off season mode or had legitimate expert comments in the article).

How about THAT! An article on Petra that's about the present and future and NOT from 2011

Well, that's cause it's part of a series "What's Next?", where they cover all top 10 players from the previous year, looking forward to next year.

This time it's WTA No. 8, Petra Kvitova. So they had to cover her upcoming/next season.

And no, I didn't read it yet.

Thanks. This domination-obsession is getting boring, TBH. Even if Petra wins 'only' three Wimbledons, two Australian Opens and one US Open - without ever dominating the game - it's still a great career with lots of great matches.

We'll see

Yeah, it's nice to see. There's a lack of exciting and attacking tennis players on both tours and not everyone wants to watch endless Murray-Djokovic or Djokovic-Nadal rallies, which are often more about athleticisim and physical stamina than about tennis skills.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

OK.

I read the first paragraph and stopped, cause it made me think of so many haterz on GM here.

Here it is:

Quote:
It seems like a very long time ago, in a tennis galaxy far far away, but as 2012 began, the consensus among WTA observers that Kvitova, who had won Wimbledon and the WTA Championships the year before, was the immediate future of women’s tennis.
I love how some haterz on GM (especially Caro fans--sorry Bruce--no offense to them, and even Vika and Masha tards), say that 'no one in the media or tennis cognoscenti tabbed Petra to take over the game and as it's new force', etc., when we said this was the case.

There it is right there in black and white. Not only did they predict her to (WTA observers), but the media also supported, repeated and embraced the notion.

Today, you have some haterz that love to say stuff like "the media would never support her", "she's nobody", etc., when that was the furthest thing from the truth. Unfortunately, Petra didn't live up to her part of the bargain.

Better luck next year Babe.

The actual article, wasn't that long or in depth. But it was fine (I guess) for the series, and Petra's current ranking.

did he provide any useful tips for Petra here?
