Wow!

Nice pics.

But why does Adam always have to look so much like, Ahem, a 17 yr old in every pic? SMH/LOL.

I know; because he is! But couldn't he be a mature looking one? Lol.

You know I'm going to put some of these pics on GM (if Yazoo or some else doesn't beat me first). Lol

Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

Wilson have updated their website (Petra pictured with the Steam Racquet), but not the description yet.

Also that might be her AO outfit.

She was totally sweet and humble throughout the evening. And very classy.
Congrats Petra!

Great photo, but Wilson should definitely update the information that goes with the article.

Is it just me, or is she holding the racquet a bit like a baseball bat?

No kidding. And the coloring of the photo reminds me of a 1950s baseball card too.

BTW, I just bought myself a Wilson BLX Tour racket (her 2011 Wimby winning racket) for Christmas! I can't wait to hit the courts with it!!!

Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

Her right hand is about to come off the racquet and she's about start her backswing for a forehand.

No doubt you are right, but her pose is still pretty funny. Petra rocks!

Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

First of all, she's looking great in all these pics. Thanks for posting them. I love the way she looks in the black dress with her hair and makeup.
Secondly, I think that's after she's finished a bh. After she's finished over her shoulder and the racquet has rebounded back down again.
Petra tends to release her upper hand from the grip earlier than that on the fh.
She quite likes to slide the upper hand towards the throat as she releases it.
Many two handed players find this a more comfortable position when taking the racquet back for a fh.

I'm actually not sure if that pic is just posed though or from actual play.
If it's posed then she might not be hitting a ball at all.

Anyway, her normal fh backswing with the upper hand movement is visible in many videos, for instance here:

Re: Photos of Petra Kvitova

I didn't look at the video. But I agree with Howard H.

It looks like Petra is in between shots (particularly her backhand; but could be either) during a practice session.

Petra usually holds the racket like that photo in between shots (as she bounces on her toes), awaiting the next ball during practice sessions.

Looks like a regular "shot line up" to me.
