Re: ~Petra Martic~

Thank god I missed it, cause this is hugely disappointing.

Yes, Petra had problems in the off season, but she closed the (past) year quite nicely and I really hoped she'll break the habit of early loses in mandatories starting with Melbourne. I see that I was hoping for too much. Her 2012 w/l record on these events was 3-8, with R1 losses in 7 out of 8 and a total of 311 points collected in them - if we consider that these tournaments reward R2 with between 50 and 100 points (311/8=38.875), it's all clear. I understand that this time she might not have been fully healthy, but if she wasn't ready she might as well have saved herself the trip and all of us some nerves and just skip the event, stay in Europe and take two more weeks to prepare for the season before Fed Cup. Speaking of FC... If this is how our #1 is doing, we are toast.

Given that Petra hadn't played a competitive match in three months and had been injured, some of us are not surprised that she lost. Disappointed yes but not surprised.

Ma re,
She had to play..just to give herself a chance.also,if te match was longer she could have won, and maybe even found her game. It is difficult to play a match when the last one was in november. But this is a grand slam.. 27000$ if u lose in first round, 45000$ if u win it 0$ if she kistent to u.. Wouldnt u play?
She did not risk further injury by playing..

I know, that was some frustration talking out of me as well, cause she can't get the handle of these most important events, and that's what's keeping her from advancing seriously in the rankings. Results like the one from Paris are too few and far between.

Of course I would play a tennis match for $27k, but then I'd probably play one for 270$, so that's a no brainer, but she does have high expenses on these long trips and they eat up some of the money as well. Sure, if there was no risk of making the injury worse, it's obvious she would choose to play.

So here's hoping for better days in February, but first up - doubles

Petra/Mladenovic are off to a good start. They're up 3-0 in their R1 doubles match against Minella/Moulton-Levy.
