Devastating loss, but she told me that she is playing Charleston next week as well so I will get the chance to see her live and cheer her on. I imagine she didn't have too much support in Ponte Vedra Beach, who could possibly have heard of her there besides tennis diehards?
Petra Kvitova - Wimbledon (2011, 2014) and YEC (2011) Champion
I'm hoping she will look at this positively. It's hard, but I mean, it's a huge step from ITF's to holding a mp against Daniela Hantuchova. Plus she had a really good tournament with 3 wins.
I hope she can build on this
This is a positive. She's young, she's expected to miss a few of these opportunities through chokes/nerves. I know she's probably a little disappointed but hopefully she can look at it as a good thing.
