Magst du Haustiere wie Wölfe, Werwölfe oder Raben? Sprich: bist du eine Prinzessin aus Game of Thrones? Gib's zu!
Ja, die weißblonde, geile.

I actually worked out in my off-season with a cross fit guy and it was absolutely amazing but super hard…I died

Such a nice response to that last guy.

I have to agree it was a bit of a mess though. She should stick to Twitter, though q&a's there can be messy too.

An absolute must-listen. It's ~50 minutes all about Andrea, first the long interview then soundbites from her pressers.

That podcast was exceptional stuff . It's rare to get interviews like this where a player sits down with a journalist and honestly discusses everything in an extended candid interview.

Quote:
Less is more. The modernist maxim is not one that always holds much weight in the 21st century world of bigger, stronger and faster tennis players. However, for Andrea Petkovic, the tapering down of her previously arduous training regimen has proved crucial in keeping her injury concerns at bay and getting her career back on track.

For Petkovic, much of the past few years on tour have been a hard slog as two serious injuries precipitated a fall from the heady heights of No.9 in the rankings all the way down to the darkest depths of the Top 200.

At the Family Circle Cup she began to put this ordeal behind her, defeating Jana Cepelova to pick up her first title since 2011.

"It's a different feeling now. In the beginning, when I won my first title, I remember I was just overwhelmed by everything, and I couldn't believe what was happening to me," Petkovic said. "And now I'm just much more grateful and I can appreciate it much more than before.

"I know what I went through in the past years, and I know what I worked for, and it's very rewarding now, and I just feel very happy."

Although the German, currently ranked No.28, still has a little way to go to reclaim her pre-injury Top 10 status, she is happy just to be enjoying her tennis again.

"I just wanted to get back to why I started playing tennis, because I had fun playing it and because I love the sport, and I think it's the most amazing sport out there," she added. "Everybody has their own opinion, obviously, but for me it's one of the most beautiful sports out there, and I just needed to remind myself why I started in the beginning, because it was fun, and just getting back to playing tennis and not trying to win matches all the time

"That's obviously a reason why I play, but it's not the reason why I play, and I just needed to remind myself."

The 26-year-old endured several very low moments during her journey back up the rankings and at one point, on the back of a particularly dispiriting run of results, even contemplated packing it all in.

Out of the Top 100 and relegated to playing qualifiers, the nadir came less than a year ago, at the French Open, when she snatched defeat from the jaws of victory to Zhou Yi-Miao in qualifying.

"I had a lot of low points, but I think the lowest, lowest, low point was last year at the French Open when I lost second round qualies against a girl that was ranked maybe No.160, and I played awful, and that's when I wanted to stop.

"Although I also wanted to stop after I lost the match against Giorgi in Indian Wells, so I had a lot of these moments where I wanted to stop playing, but somehow I always kept doing what I did, and I kept not believing, but wanting it, I guess. I didn't believe it at all in certain moments, but I kept wanting it, and that's why I kept working, and I'm very thankful that it paid off in the end."

Soon after this crisis of confidence, though, the tide began to turn. Runner-up finishes at Nürnberg and Washington signaled a return to form and helped her finish 2013 inside the Top 50 again.

Her spell on the sidelines also allowed Petkovic to fine-tune a few technical aspects of her game, whilst also revamping her approach to training.

"I think I got technically much better after my injuries. You always have to see the good and the bad somehow, and the good thing about my injuries was that I knew I couldn't only rely on my fitness after all these injuries, because I wasn't able to practice as much as I used to before, so I needed to develop technically.

"I needed to improve my serve. And I needed to have more variety if I wanted to be able to get back to where I was. I couldn't be relying only on my fitness anymore. And so I made these changes, and I changed coaches, and I worked on it very hard and tried to become more of a tennis player and not only a tennis worker.

"There's still a long way to go for me, and I still have a lot of potential to improve it, but I think I'm on the right track."

Re: Petko Articles & Interviews

http://tennisnet.com/de/damen/fedcup...ein-Riesending

Quote:
Mit ihrem Turniersieg in Charleston hat sich Andrea Petkovic nicht nur zurück in die Top 30 gespielt, sondern auch zurück in den Fokus des öffentlichen Interesses. Im Interview spricht die Spielerin des deutschen Fed-Cup-Teams über ihren ersten großen Titel, über ihre neue Gelassenheit und über die Lust auf das Fed-Cup-Finale.

Es ist ja nicht so, dass vor deinem Turniersieg kürzlich in Charleston keiner was von dir wissen wollte. Aber jetzt bist du definitiv wieder im Mittelpunkt des Interesses gelandet. Wie gefällt dir das?
Petkovic: Das ist eine Medaille mit zwei Seiten. Einerseits genieße ich es, weil ich das Gefühl habe, ich komme wieder dahin, wo ich hingehöre und bekomme die Anerkennung, für die wir ja auch spielen und die ich immer gewünscht habe. Andererseits ist es nicht das Ding, was ich brauche; mehr Zeit zu verlieren, wieder mehr aufpassen zu müssen, was ich sage.

Wo steht dieser Titel von Charleston in deiner Rangliste?
Petkovic: Ich würde schon sagen, das ist der wichtigste meiner Karriere. Es war das höchstdotierte Turnier, am besten besetzt und ist nach der ganzen Verletzungsmisere emotional am wichtigsten gewesen. Es ist auch einfacher für mich, denn wenn jetzt noch irgendetwas passieren sollte und meine Karriere vorbei ist, dann war ich nicht nur in den Top Ten, sondern habe auch einen großen Titel gewonnen. Es hat auf jeden Fall eine Bürde von mir genommen.

Wie viele Kilometer lagen gefühlt zwischen deinem Tief von Indian Wells Anfang März, in dem du alles in Frage gestellt hast, und Charleston ein paar Wochen später? 500? 1000?
Petkovic: Milliarden.

Hast du eine Erklärung für die Veränderung?
Petkovic: In Charleston habe ich auf einmal das akzeptiert, was da war. Dadurch, dass ich mich besser entwickelt hatte, dass meine Schläge und meine Taktik besser waren, wollte ich vorher auch immer schön spielen. Und gut spielen. Und wenn das nicht lief, wurde ich panisch und hektisch. Das war dann so ein Schneeball-Effekt, und ich kam nicht mehr raus. Und in Charleston - ich weiß nicht genau, woher es kam, wahrscheinlich auch durch Gespräche mit meinem Coach Eric van Harpen und mit Barbara Rittner - war ich auf einmal bereit zu akzeptieren, welche Mittel ich an den Tag hatte. Und dann gibt es ja so ein japanisches Sprichwort, in dem sie sagen: Erfolg kommt oft kurz nachdem man kurz davor ist aufzugeben. Das war so zwischen Indian Wells und Charleston, als ich am großen Ganzen gezweifelt habe, und dann auf einmal wieder da war, wo ich hinwollte.

Auf den Siegerfotos siehst du total entspannt und glücklich aus. Hast du das auch so empfunden?
Petkovic: Auf jeden Fall. Es war schon so, dass ich nach dem Halbfinale einen kleinen emotionalen Ausbruch hatte. Da kam alles zusammen, auch Erschöpfung, und ich hab nicht nur aus Freude geheult. Nach dem Finale hab ich mich einfach nur richtig, richtig gefreut und war superglücklich.

Du hast mal gesagt, auf den Erfolg im ersten Teil deiner Karriere seiest du nicht vorbereitet gewesen, der habe dich irgendwie überrollt. Bist du jetzt besser präpariert?
Petkovic: Ich denke ja. Zum Beispiel nach dem Turniersieg hab ich nur ein Interview gegeben, habe meine Ruhe genommen, war drei Tage zuhause und habe gechillt. Das ist so ein Zeichen. Ich glaube, dass ich in der Hinsicht viel gelernt habe, aber irgendwie kann man doch nie richtig drauf vorbereitet sein; es ist immer wieder neu, und ist auch immer wieder erschreckend, wie viel Aufmerksamkeit solche Erfolge generieren.

Obwohl die Aufgabe gegen Australien schwer genug ist - wie sehr spielt der Gedanke ans Finale so kurz vor dem ersten Spiel eine Rolle?
Petkovic: Wir wussten immer, dass wir das können, aber Halbfinale ist auf einmal so nah dran. Deswegen haben wir uns auch so darüber geärgert, dass das Spiel in Australien ist, weil es ja passieren kann, dass das zuhause kaum einer wahrnimmt. Es ist hart mit dem Jetlag, es strapaziert den Körper, ist einfach echt schade. Aber dadurch, dass wir alle wissen, das wäre so ein Riesending mit einem Finale, vergessen wir die ganzen Anstrengungen. Wenn ich diesen Trip für ein Relegationsspiel hätte machen müssen, dann hätte ich viel mehr rumgejammert. Aber weil wir das Finale vor Augen haben, sagen alle, jetzt halte eine Woche durch und versuche, alles zu machen, was du kannst. Und dann sehen wir, was am Ende dabei rauskommt.
