If peak Petra and peak Errani show up (and I'm sure Errani will to seal the deal, given the surface and Petra's form yesterday), it would turn into one of those titanic battles and that could potentially exacerbate her shoulder issues. Argh.

Well, who knows what waiting can do to Petra and the Czech girls. But yeah, some say that breaks and pauses helps the one who wants to get back in match.

Re: Petra’s Fed Cup Campaigns

Well,just like the realm of Sanity includes far more than Complete Soundness and Lunacy,with loads of stages in between,Mental Strength in the athletic realm is far more than merely Rock-solid Stability and Utter Weakness.Petra has shown that she's not at the peak level of mental strength,yet she's quite capable of demonstrating a fairly high level,as she did today.

It would've been so easy to quit mentally after losing the 1st set,with the team already in a somewhat-forbidding 0-2 hole.Am not so sure that Errani is really as good as her current ranking,but she's still a formidable opponent on slow red clay,and she was on her home court with fans who were surely quite partisan with their cheering,so this counts as a nice win for Petra,no doubt.Even if she'd won her match yesterday,there's a strong chance that it would've proved to be in vain with Italy a big favorite in today's 2nd singles rubber.Even a 2-2 score would still have world Doubles #1s Vinci and Errani helping to decide the tie on their home soil,a major challenge even for Andrea and Lucie Hrad.

IF...emphasis on 'if'...Petra's shoulder really is okay,then she closed her FC performance on a very positive note and should be feeling okay for Stuttgart
