Great job Serena!! Fighting a cold, a tough opponent and her own form but got through.

Petra- very classy!

L'Enfant Sauvage, thanks so much for posting the match!! My stupid cable channel showed all 3 QFs but didn't show this one.
Loved Serena's reaction at the end. the semi is going to be tough, so don't go into crybaby mode. Keep it up Rena for another two matches please, then take some time off.

Re: Doha QF: New XEWTA No.1 Serena Williams def. Petra Kvitova in an EPIC 3-6 6-3 7-5

I don't think that Petra played her best since YEC 2011. Last year in the summer she also played great tennis at times, certainly serving so much better than yesterday; and when you are leading 4-1 in the third, the match is going to be mostly in your hands; so yes: she choked. If she had served better in the third set she would have won the match, but she didn´t. The first serve % was so low, and the game she lost to 30 serving at 4-2 with two DF and a silly mistake was awful, and put Serena right back into the match. She didn't finish it off, and you cannot allow yourself that luxury when at the other side of the net you have the best player in the word, even if you are leading 4-1 in the third.

Finished watching match and saw no choking whatsoever from Kvitova.
Don't know how the lie got started, but Kvitova was simply outplayed in the end.
Kudos to her for maintaining her poise and not giving up after Serena upped her level.

Also, it was quite clear that Serena was not well throughout the match.
She appeared sluggish and struggled mightily with her movement, apparently due to the effects of a cold. Still and yet, she persevered.
That is just pure champion spirit, and why she was able to return time after time after major injuries.
Credit where due people.
Serena won this by mental strength and pure desire.

No lie was started by anyone. It's just a matter of having different opinions on the same subject.

Channeling Sharapova with being on her knees, being in Crybabyrena mode... the match just had everything and was just as dramatic as one for the throne should be. Congratz, Renochka beyond well-deserved.
The Jehovah bit made me cringe, though.

Great match. Petra played so well till the end. Great fight from Serena. Oldest No. 1. She just keeps adding those records.

Congrats on regaining the #1 ranking Serena. She so emotional in the interview too. It was great seeing her capture the #1 again after everything she went through in the last two and a half years. As someone said earlier in the thread, she has come full circle since the injury after Wimbledon 2010.

I hope Sharapova breaks the rubicon today. Serena has had her share of success for the week with the no1 A Sharapova win today would be epic.

Petra what a class act. One of the 1st things she said in presser is that she is very happy that Serena is at No1 cuz she deserves it

Re: Doha QF: New XEWTA No.1 Serena Williams def. Petra Kvitova in an EPIC 3-6 6-3 7-5

Disappointing choke from Petra in that third set

She cannot afford to keep losing to Serena if she is to be taken seriously as a top player...IMO you need to challenge and beat the likes of Williams consistently to establish that. At least she's getting halfway there.

Pova and VIchka doing just fine without beating Serena, only thing they're doing consistently is getting their asses spanked by Queen, on the other hand Petra always plays toe to toe with her

Happy with the result. Petra plays well when theres no pressure on her. Gurl this is how you play to get the no. 1 ranking.

Petras time will come but alas the true no. 1 returns
