I think she cares, her more frequent mood swing with real extremes proves that but WHY SHE PLAYS BAD IS A MYSTERY

Yes it's, no matter how bad she plays in the process or before or after or how bad she feels, Petra always managed to scramble wins indoors, i called her ultimate indoorGOAT for a reason, there's no more Saint Kim and Petra taken indoor crown from her but loosing in this fashion INDOORS is ridicilous, this should not be happening and the problem is not her team, fitness, dedication or whatever, it's just like she forget how to play tennis and be herself

I can take any loss on any surface but not indoors, she's too good on this surface even at 5%. Also, i give credit to Xtina for not giving up, fighting and taking her chances but i blame Pera and only Petra for this

Take notice Shifty.

It doesn't matter the surface when this is your attitude, mental stability and work ethic.

I'm not at the level of insulting my faves just because and yes surface does matter, when all your life you trained and tailored your game to it but now you're at a point where you play worse than a club level player is ridicilous, Petra even at her best struggled with outdoor conditions but indoors there's nothing to struggle with and she's in Europe, so no asthma issues.

You just don't get it do you!!? What is so hard to understand?

Petra just can't show up and win anywhere, if her game, work ethic, will, instinct, confidence and timing are completely shot (as it appears to be now)!!

Maybe, she can do that on grass, cause grass is not a true bounce, good footing surface (unlike indoor hardcourt), and Petra's game is tailor made for it. However, if she doesn't feast on a compliant opponent to gain form, she can loose early on grass as well. Makarova beat her last year at Eastbourne (though in fairness, Makarova had already played a preceding grass tournament, when Petra didn't, but you get the point).

And there's no legitimate tennis reason why Petra should have poor results on Outdoor Hardcourt. That's all mental for Petra (as she showed when she won Montreal, New Haven and made the semi's of Cincy, and last years Australian Open run). That success, only demonstrates how inconsistent Petra and her team are at gearing her up for specific parts of the season and events (along with practicing at Prostojev during her off time).

I think it's you who don't get it. If she can't even perform at the level of Top100 player on her best and favorite surface, this shows something is wrong with her, not her team, not her preparation, not commitment but only her. Playing indoors is in her blood, she doesn't need to have the best team in the world or great preparation to produce decent results and her past achievements proves that, it's not like she played vs another indoorGOAT. If she plays great here without distraction from big media, her team but continues to play bad in doha\dubai this proves your theory about bad preparation and stuff but she just played bad, period. The only thing that Petra needs to change it's her mental state, it's like something happened in her life that she's just distracted from being herself on the court.


btw, i don't said she can't have good results, i've said she can struggles with wind, sun, humidity, heat, etc... this things affect any player but indoors all this things are absent, so for playing in Australia we can find some excuses for her poor results but here we can't and that's what's worries me, since she always plays great indoors no matter what. FC would be great measuring stick, if she can't perform decently even there

I dont make a big deal about this anymore, Petra is just an inmature girl with an attitude problem, I think Djokovic went through something similar, right?

Thank you. I completely agree, and I think people underestimate the amount of tennis that is mental. (the answer is: almost all of it)

Also, let's not go overboard here. She's not acting like pre-2011 Vika. She's not a brat. What I've seen from her lately is more akin to Sloane Stephens in the AO SF: no confidence, shank, shank, UE, winner, no confidence, get down on yourself, occasional semblance of game plan, semblance of game plan is completely gone, repeat.
