That was before Brisbane started.

And she actually played better (from her first match, and after the first 4 games of her 2nd/last match) there.

Re: Petra lost to Dominika in Sydney

Paul,with YOUR creativity,I'm a bit disappointed with the updated thread title---In place of the word 'lost',why not submit the verbal phrase like so: "Petra(creates biohazard by dropping a toxic,manure-smelling stinkbomb)in Sydney".....That might be a clearer summation

Seriously,I hope that Petra's health is okay but,if her asthma is gonna leave her THIs helpless on such a regular basis,then maybe it's time to retire NOW instead of risking some on-court attack that might take her life

Re: Petra lost to Dominika in Sydney

Wow that's a bad day on court. Even though I know Petra is very up and down so I know she might lose, despite the 4-0 head to head, I am a little surprised that the scoreline would be so bleak. Well, Domi is also pretty up and down, maybe Domi was red hot as well as Petra not playing well? I didn't see it so I have no idea of the level of play from both players but I presume it wasn't pretty from Petra at least.

A good run in Melbourne would probably erase such a loss from the minds of her followers. I wouldn't put it past her to come out of nowhere with a great result at some stage this year. Just have to sit back and wait till it happens. There's no way she's going to be a truly consistent performer any time soon, judging from this. Maybe never. But I still think she'll have hot streaks and deep runs in slams. Last year she was actually quite consistent in slams, SF, SF, QF, 4R. So maybe she'll still do well in the AO. If she bombs out then it might be time to really worry.

I live in Melbourne, never trust the rumours. The forecast by the Bureau of Metereology hasn't been released for next week yet.

Even still, Petra will play on Hisense or Rod Laver, if its hotter, the roof will be closed a little to allow for more shade.

I'm not counting her out yet. I expect at least 4R at the AO. After all, this was just one match. Even Serena lost to Razzano. I know people are saying this time last year she won Hopman Cup. Well if she played this year she would've been guaranteed a final because the women's field was so weak.

Not to turn this into a non-Petra issue, but since you made the comparision, it's a bad one. If you remember what happened to Razzano, you'd know there was divine intervention going on in that match.

Petra sounds at a loss for words. Just read this paragraph. If any of our Czech members like to chime in for accuracy (this is a Google translation), feel free:

Quote:
"I played really badly. I would like to know what I could say to that, but I do not know," she told Australian reporters Kvitova. "I'm not that well right now, in terms of confidence, but I always look forward. Awaits us Grand Slam and I hope everything will be better there than here," she added.
