I hope they will move it back. I do not think it will die here but it is a legendary thread for sure.

I personally petition for moving it back to GM if PK wins another Slam. Considering that I am hoping for another one next year, it may not be far away!!

Re: Watch out for Petra Kvitova

Move back to GM.

As the youngest Slam winner since 2008 and the current holder of Wimbledon (and huge prospect), this deserves a place in GM (seeing as how slamless Caroline can get about 5-10 threads in GM a week, Petra deserves at least one in there).

Re: Watch out for Petra Kvitova

I just watched the old Wimbledon 2010 QF, Kvitova v. Kanepi. (Kaia just made finals of Moscow, and that reminded me of this match.)

I am amazed that Kvitova won that match. She was down a break for most of the third set. Then Kanepi earned a match point on Petra's serve at 5-6, 30-40. Petra missed her first serve. Then the second serve clipped the tape and fell in the box for a let. Then on the third serve, Kanepi hit a pretty good-looking return that was long by maybe an inch.

In none of this did Petra exhibit any nerves. As you know, she went on to win the set and match, 8-6 in the third, serving it out to love.

Re: Watch out for Petra Kvitova

Credit to the OP for recognizing Petra's talent so early in her career.

Also to iPatty who is a great scout of talent. Didn't you used to have a thread that assessed the up-and-comers? I miss that thread.

Re: Watch out for Petra Kvitova

A well deserved BUMP. Should be bumped at least one more time in case Petra is getting the No.1 spot!
Too bad that this thread is no longer in GM:-(

Still a Savant I see David Mario.

And by the way, Petra is only 115 pts behind Caro now.

Too bad Vera couldn't finish the job!!

But it gives Petra something to shoot for in 2012 (and keeps her the hunter and not the hunted).

Re: Watch out for Petra Kvitova

move this back to gm .

Amazing from the OP to recognize kvitty's talent.
I was also quite right when i said top 30 by 2009 and that her game would develop.

Re: Watch out for Petra Kvitova

Exceptional talent spotting David Mario

@ some of the posts in this thread regarding Petra's future and ranking ... remind me not to read what they write/say regarding future tennis players or anything to do with tennis for that fact

I can't remember when I first saw her and fell in love with her and her game, but it was either Wimby 2010 or USO when she beat Safina .... whatever came first
