Overall a very nice performance by Petra, in control, agressive, just the way she should play at such an event. Just goes to show she is too good for this sort of field, although she shouldn't allow Dabrowski kind of hickups. I expected at least a semi from her here (now I can say it) so this is already good in my book, but a title would be great and it's far from unatainable.
Yes, it was especially good to see her being more assertive and going forward maybe a bit more than we're used to. On this surface and against this sort of opposition it clearly pays off. If she keeps up like this it shouldn't be a problem to reach USO quali seeding.
