Petra's an interesting Lass.

Wherea's most champions in Petra's predicament, would complain "They're not giving me any respect I deserve". and "No ones picking me to win" to motivate themselves. Petra does the opposite.

She actually, internally in her brain and body, says "I was nervous", when no one is really talking about her storming through in the fist place. In other words, she hears what she wants to hear.

Go Figure~

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

I think that she feels the pressure. I mean she is one of the last faves left tbh. Thats probably what shes thinking right now. I dunno what is in her mind. But God knows what could happen in the next days in wimbledon. I think shes taking slower steps than she should. 2011 was her golden days, but i still think that Kvitova wouldnt think like a 2011 GOAT player that she was. Shes more hesitate than before.

Definitely, she said that she can't play the same like in 2011 because the expectations are different, she can't just bash the ball and don't think at all. Unfortunately, it also means for her that she puts bigger pressure on her self than she should.
I still hope that she can play more freely again and play some really good tennis that her opponents could only watch and learn.

Fortunately/Unfortunately, I think that's all decided, when Petra's steps on the court (and what subsequently happens). I don't even think she knows.

PS: I find it funny, that Petra says so often how nervous she is, and dealing with pressure (if that's the real reason). However, neither she or her Management, have changed coaches, and/or brought in an assortment of advisors, and specialist, who can either help her with her tennis or mind/mental game. It's hasn't been working.

She/They appear 'Stuck In The Mud', making no tangible movements or adjustments? Hey, its ultimately, Petra's career, not ours. We're just the innocent (and not so innocent) by standers [and my/first last statement on this subject/personnel additions-Lol].

And Good Luck Today Against Flipkens Petra!!!!!!!

PS: ESPN said the 'Li Na, was considering retiring'. However, new coach, Carlos Rodriguez, has given her a new outlook on the game, by showing her different/new tactics, which have inspired her to play tennis longer.

That's what new, fresh additions, can do to your mind, perspective and outlook (not just confidence).

Once again, Good Luck Petra!!!!!!!!!

I'm praying for her retirement so he could start to train Petra.

And good luck, Petra, of course!

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Adio interview for Czech radio on rozhlas.cz:
Quote:
„I regret it, but perhaps it will make me stronger,“ says Petra Kvitova after her loss in Wimbledon



Perceiving of progress in game
„I wouldn't say it in the current state of mind, but when I look back at it after a few weeks I will have to acknowledge that it is my best grand slam tournament this year. I defended last year's quarter final so you can find something positive about it. There was a advance in game, even the head worked well in last matches. It hold me on in today's and yesterday's match, even if happened what happened. I think that some elements like the serve or the base line play weren't completely bad thought. I mean it could be better but it wasn't bad.“

And how will the program of the best tennis player of The Czech Republic look?
„I will rest for a while. And then we will start to work on fitness with Kristian (Bajza), after that we will start to play tennis with David (Kotyza) so I could be ready for America which will start in Carlsbad. I will be remembering last year a lot when I was doing so well. I hope that I will bring it to the this year's tournaments. We all know that it's not perfect for me there, but I proved last year that it is possible to play there,“ Petra Kvitova adds.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Full transcript after her QF loss to K.Flipkens 4‑6, 6‑3, 6‑4
Quote:
Q. You seemed to be having problems with your breathing. Seemed to be perspiring a lot. Do you have a touch of flu or something?
PETRA KVITOVA: I'm not sure if it's flu. I got some virus last night. It was quite tricky for me. I was in the beginning of the sick I think and I had a sore throat.
Today I was just fighting what I can, but unfortunately it wasn't enough.


Q. Did it affect your stamina?
PETRA KVITOVA: Well, I felt pretty dizzy and tired and sleepy, so, I mean, for sure didn't help me.
But, I mean, I don't do excuse because of this. Kirsten played very well. She did not give me anything free. I tried, but it wasn't enough
.

Q. When did that start? Did you feel badly when you woke up today or previously?
PETRA KVITOVA: It was yesterday when I went to sleep. In the morning was a little bit worse with my sore throat.
I was feeling a little bit better before the match, but, unfortunately, there wasn't energy then.


Q. 4‑All in the last set, do you think maybe it was an issue of not winning as many matches as you had here before when you won this tournament, the confidence?
PETRA KVITOVA: No, I don't think so. I mean, I played quite good match like all through. I don't think it was about a confident.
Yeah, I should win this game. I was up, I think. But I had easy mistakes in the end of this game. It was bad for me.

Q. Did playing under the roof make it any worse?
PETRA KVITOVA: No, I don't think so. I mean, it was good. It was for both of us same, so I didn't think it was worst or better.

Q. Do you feel it was bad luck because you got sick before so you are going to forget this easily, or is it a tough loss for you because there was a big opportunity?
PETRA KVITOVA: Well, I'm disappointing right now. I just really don't want to excuse because I had some virus.
But, yeah, I felt that it's a big chance to be in the semifinal here. I really try to do everything what I can, but I lost.


Q. You've been in a bunch of slam quarterfinals. Did this one feel different because of the other players who weren't here?
PETRA KVITOVA: Maybe a little bit. For sure it was a lot of talking about that I'm the highest seeded player in my half. But, I mean, maybe it's making little bit more pressure, but I used to already.
I mean, that's something what I really have to be okay with this. I try it, and unfortunately I didn't make it. I mean, quarterfinal in the Grand Slam so far is for me the best result this year.
For now of course I'm quite sad, but I hope that I will be better.


Q. What were you doing particularly well in this tournament that you can kind of use as momentum as we get over to the States, which I know you don't love playing in, but it's a reality?
PETRA KVITOVA: Unfortunately it is. Uhm, I think now I played a few matches here, so I think that it's help me too to have some matches in my bag.
I mean, I had a great result last year in America, so I will try to thinking positively over there. But I think that my serve was pretty well all the tournament, especially today.
I mean, the play from the basing line [sic] wasn't too bad, too, so I hope that I can find some good things from the game.


Q. Are you planning to go back to Czech and have a rest and training block or...
PETRA KVITOVA: I don't know. I just lost. I mean, I don't thinking about yet, so...

Q. Illness aside today, where would you say your level is now today compared to when you won here two years ago?
PETRA KVITOVA: Well, I think it's not as high as 2011. For sure I have still some space where I can improve. But I can't say a number in a percentage where I am now.
I felt pretty good. I had good matches. That's important for me right now.


Q. Going into the quarterfinal today, did it feel different at all than the quarterfinal in 2011?
PETRA KVITOVA: I'm not remember who I played in the quarterfinal in 2011. Do you?

Q. Pironkova.
PETRA KVITOVA: Oh. Yeah, I think 2011 was, like, I played quite really great matches before this quarterfinal against Pironkova. It was tricky opponent. I remember I fought again and tried to win. I mean, she was tough opponent, as Kirsten today.
It was different time. I really can't to compare.


Q. But looking back then, did you feel like you were going into that match with less to lose than maybe today?
PETRA KVITOVA: I think so, for sure.

Q. Is Kirsten playing well enough to perhaps go on and win the whole thing?

PETRA KVITOVA: I mean, she can play well, for sure. I mean, for her was the first time to be in a quarterfinal. I'm quite surprised how she played with this experience even.
It will be more about the mentally side, I think. She play really well and she really can surprise someone. But I'm not sure how is it with the mentally side.


Q. All the media are being asked who do we think are going to win. We don't have any idea.
PETRA KVITOVA: Me neither.

Q. Can you make any sense of what's happened to this tournament? Can you explain all these strange results that have happened?
PETRA KVITOVA: I think it's very weird Grand Slam over here. I mean, I really don't know what I want to talk about. I don't have any tip, too.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Remember when she won the Wimbledon, everyone on this board thought she was the ice queen because she never showed much emotion when winning or losing.
We all thought Petra wasn't like the other players that choked because she is tough mentally.

Oh how I miss seeing this Petra.

Marion is playing amazing and doing all the right things to neutralize her, Petra had her chances despite not being in best shape but she lost, Flipper beat Petra fair and square

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Great article, though the Kerber match in Cincinnati was not a final.

Here's hoping she does something even better this year.

Only if you could add something about this year's plans of Petra and it would be even more interesting. We all here are kinda worried about her this year, concidering that she is going to play not 3 but 4 tournaments before USO.

I don't know why but my hopes are very high for at least one better moment before her show on USO.
