2015 Mid-season break - Petra takes time off to regroup and recharge her batteries

Hi, guys.

After some time, it's my turn to drive the Kvitty ferrari again. Thanks to knoxy, he's done a good job.

Feel free to correct me or advise me, if you want.

Re: 2015 Dubai Duty Free - Petra comes back into action in UAE - bye in 1st round

If Petra's playing well, I don't see any of those opponents as being particularly troubling. If she's not- Svitolina may be a tough 2nd round ask. I'm interested to see if Muguruza can make it to the QF with that section.

NB 7pm Kvitova vs Svitolina

Re: 2015 Dubai Duty Free - Petra woke up after the 1st set and defeated Svitolina in

Congrats to Petra, fist win after a month.

I thought she's going to lose but she realized where she is and what she has to do in the 2nd set and then played good effective tennis to win it in 3.

I hope she'll avoid this kind of mess in the next match.

Carla .S.Navarro can be a nightmare if she doesn't play well.And to boot, Petra lost to her in the same round, in the same tournament last year

Re: 2015 Dubai Duty Free - Petra woke up after the 1st set and defeated Svitolina in

Only if Petra could recover like this in a major!?

If it was the Aussie, or US Open, she may have lost?

Gotta be a mental thing. And this should answer the question of Synth, Tennisaddict 84 (and maybe even The Juju), regarding Petra's ability to make a come back after losing/not playing the first set well. She can, and does. It's just not in the majors much the past several years.

Nonetheless, Petra settled down and focused a bit better (while playing the key points better as well) in the second and third set, and we saw the results.

Let's hope she can improve on this match/last two sets even more?

Svitolina, had nothing that could hurt Petra. So all she had to do was play good tennis, while not letting her opponents personality, and occasional "Get (of a shot)" disapoint her, or get underneath her skin. That's the type of player Svitolina is. She's tries to get underneath your skin and irritate you.

You can say the same for the next opponent (minus the histrionics), Suarez Navarro.

Let's just hope this match made Petra better prepared?

I think she lost to her in the 2nd round last year. Anyway, this is a revenge tournament for Petra so far.

Slow court ? No.Faster than any other hard court apparently
Night match ? No. Late afternoon.Perfect time.
Humid ? Not that much to bother
Injury ? No
Tired ? Just second match in a month.
Opponent Goating ? Not at all. Infact struggled to serve it out.

I am struggling to find one reason for this performance . What could it be? I am looking at you Kotyza. SMH
