I feel the exact same way too, that's why I like those three right now and I started to like Kim when she came back from retirement.

Yeah I hate watching Kvitova matches nowadays because she totally puts me on edge. Consistency isn't exactly her thing...

Does that mean that if they should all of a sudden start winning again you'll reach a point where you want them to go down again?

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol4

Same reason why I started supporting Kvitova I even remember that I rooted for Azarenka in that YEC 2011 And now Petra basically became my fave player after Maria As far as Caro goes, I'm ok with her, she doesn't annoy me like she did before, but Ana... I seriously don't think I'll ever be able to really root with my heart for her except when she plays against someone I really can't stand

I'm really glad Sara, Roberta, Caroline and Petra are in the SF. I like them all. I want a Sara-Petra final

I don't know, at least for me, when a player starts strong, collapses, and starts to come back, I tend to want that person to stay at the top, beating players who aren't my fave (aka Maria). It's probably why I tend to support Li Na over other players more than I had a few years ago. I don't like instant/permanent-success players the way I have in the past. I like some struggle, drama. It's really complicated I guess

Mature. I mean, you don't come across as a 20-year-old, at all. I would have guessed you were 30+.

No. I want her to punish the Demon at one of those events so that its devotees would stop moaning how unfair it was they didn't meet last year. Ideally, I would want Karolina to beat the Demon because of the hilarity but we know that ain't gonna happen ever never never ...

The combination of your Avi+calling Vika the Demon is too much for me to handle

I don't know what to make of her. I think she has the potential to be the biggest player from the Azarenka/Wozniacki/Radwanska age group but she seems to me to be the least motivated of them. I could be wrong, but those other three seem to want it more to me. That doesn't mean that those three will achieve more than Petra (only Vika seems likely to do that), but it means that when they retire they will be able to say that they came close to maximising their talent, which is all you can ever do. I'm not sure that this will also be the case with Kvitova. But since all of them have potentially still six, seven, eight or more years to go it's early days obviously.

Leave Petra alone. You need to save your scorn/sarcasm/best stuff for VIP and Vika in IW.

Seriously? I've never been told that before. Thanks I guess! I think it's because I only make very brief posts on this forum and I've not really gotten to know anyone yet.

I agree. She doesn't even seem to be mentally fragile like Azarenka was in 2009/2010 but instead seems to lose focus really easily. Sort of like how Venus was in 2009. She'll be on top of her game for a set and then just completely lose it all out of no where. In the Ivanovic match (if I remember correctly) it was like she began to get bored and let things slip away from her. It's really frustrating because she has soooo much potential - especially in this era of women's tennis where the competition isn't as fierce as it was in the Venus/Serena/Davenport/etc days. IDK I just hope she gets back into the 2011 form. If she keeps playing and playing like she has been in 2012 then she'll eventually find that form again but I think the most important thing for Kvitova is to find CONSISTENCY.
