Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra and Kristina are in quarterfinal action today and play Klemenschits/Klepac. Entering doubles is a really good move at this point in my opinion, as Petra needs matches most of all, not to mention that doubles can infuse some extra confidence into her. At the same time last year Petra already made 742 pts since the start of the season, while this year she is at just 216, and that's counting yesterday's win. However, with the game she showed in singles coupled with the experience they have as a team, I think they are serious contenders for the title here.

As for singles, what's there to say. On the positive side, Petra showed quite a good level of tennis considering how little she played this year, not to mention the conditions and the opponent. It was nice to see her fighting so hard throughout the match. As for the not so nice things, there were obviously chances that she didn't take and Francesca wasn't exactly on top of her game yesterday. Of course, whenever you play Schiavo you have to know that she has virtually endless energy levels, and even if the match went the distance I'm not sure Petra would profit from it.

All in all it was a solid performance and something to build on for the weeks to come. The points from winning a match would've come handy at this point, but what can you do about it. You win some, you lose some, that's life. The important thing is to keep fighting and working hard and I'm sure the results will come.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Just ran into Kristina's WTA Marrakech blog (http://www.wtatennis.com/blogs/artic...log-those-days) where she added a picture of her and Petra from the player's party and says, among other things:

My doubles partner, Petra Martic, was playing her singles match against Schiavone on center court, so I went to support her a little bit. Unfortunately she lost, but I thought she played some great tennis. She took some rest afterwards so I was just waiting for our match a little bit..

Even after a defeat she was still smiling and in a good mood - I like it! Our doubles match was great. It was a pretty solid one as we won 62 61 against the French pair of Beltrame/Thorpe. Petra and I are two big servers and today it was almost impossible for our opponents to break our serve. I think we complement each other very well in doubles - we both feel the doubles game and are volleying well, which is very important. We have been very good friends since the junior years and have a lot of fun on the court together too, so you will always see us smiling and laughing and enjoying our time together.

Just confirms that Petra's result is indeed very good. Great to see them sneaking through another close doubles encounter. Hopefully one will be streamed.

Re: ~Petra Martic~

An in-form Cornet didn't fare much better either - 4 & 4 (I know, Cornet on clay is not exactly world class, but still).

Today Petra's doubles semi is coming up (will be streamed on LSH starting from 17:30 CET), they're facing an unseeded team of Savchuk/Scheepers. Hope they bring out the goods one more time at least, cause Petra's doubles ranking has been suffering lately as well, and she is currently #87. With this result she will jump to around 81 and has no points to defend until Paris, where last year she made one win in doubles. In case of a final, she'd jump to around 77 and with a title to about #73.

Good luck!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra and Kristina a step away from the final against Savchuk/Scheepers - currently they lead 6:4, *4:0! The only "drawback" is that LSH took down the stream right before the match

Re: ~Petra Martic~

Petra's final is the first match of today's schedule, but the question is when is that. Both LSH and WTA state the start of Stuttgart at the same time (14:00), but they disagree on Marrakech - one says 14:30 and the other 12:30 which doesn't even make sense with different time zones as the time difference between local time and CET is just one hour.

Anyway, after them Schiavo will take on LDL in the singles final () after taking out Scheepers yesterday 7:6, 6:1 (). Can you tell I'm pissed about it...?
