Oh yeah, "Jaroslava", thanks.
I should have got it earlier as this name and its short cut is also known in The Czech republic.

Well, that was fun as always. Glad Petra pulled through this time. Matches are very rarely easy for Petra these days and I don't expect it to be that way against Shvedova.

I read that Shvedova didnt play that great against Bertens and some poster said their match was a mess actually so chances are...

Re: Where the Grass has no name - Eastbourne & Wimbledon 2013

Petra said in her presser that Proby is here and she's working with him, cramps and maintaining fitness shouldn't be an issue now. That's the best news i've heard from Petra's camp in a while. I really like approach she takes towards this Wimbledon, i hope her game will follow her soon

Indeed.

We also have to remember that Shvedova is a head case herself as well.

Fans of slumping players like Kvitova, always fear the next talented opponent for good reason. Nonetheless, players like Shvedova are inconsistent and unpredictable themselves; otherwise players with their talent wouldn't be ranked so far below Petra (for example) as they currently are.

So I wouldn't be surprised with virtually anything that happened next match; though I would like to think Petra should win?

Bajza is there? I though I've seen somebody between Kotyza and Šodek at start of the match.

Exactly, the worst case scenario for bookmakers: two highly talented but very inconsistent predictably unpredictable players in the early round. Surely don't want to be on their place now.

Hey Excelscior, what do you think about Petra's ROS today, considering Coco the mug has a big serve?

Quote:
“My season is up and down, I know it."

"Today I had chances which I didn’t take and it wasn’t for the first time this season. But also I know I can fight till the end and win, so it’s important to me to know that I can do it. It doesn’t matter that it is in two or three sets, the victory is important.”

“I slipped two times in the first set quite badly and then suddenly I felt my muscle was cramping around the hip every time I stepped on my leg, so it wasn’t very easy to serve when I have to jump and land on the leg.”


on Shvedova: “I remember it was a difficult match for me [RG2012] and she served quite well so it was good practice today,” said Kvitova. “She plays very aggressively, she won doubles here, so she can be very dangerous on the grass.”

I thought it was VERY GOOD during the first set, where Petra was blasting many first serves for outright winners, and deep, hard up the middle. And it was better than average at select moments during the third set as well (more on and off than the first).

However, it was inconsistent during the 2nd and even parts of the third set, where she had several BP opportunities she couldn't close out (5-3, 5-4)in the second set, and the first game [BP's on 2nd serves] of the third set.

That's what made the second set, and early third set so disappointing: Petra actually had a good return of serve (up the middle, deep and for winners) during a good portion of the match, that she gave back.

So overall it was promising (Coco has a good serve), while at the same time disappointing [Remember this was Coco-Lol]. Does that make sense?

I hope that helps. Lol

Re: Where the Grass has no name - Eastbourne & Wimbledon 2013

PS Steni:

Coco doesn't have a "Big Serve". She has a "hard" first serve. However, 90% she doesn't know how to use it, back it up, or it's not effective. There's a difference. You have a big serve, when it normally works.

Remember: In 12 Grand Slams, Coco has lost 11 times in the first rd, and won only once. This year, she's only won 5 matches so far.

She's a scrub!!!
