At least he talked with Lendl about Petra, i hope Ivan knock some senses into him, so he recommends world-class guy. Other part i don't get, all decisions about team personal should be on Petra, why Kotyza dragged into this, his job as manager to get in touch with right people and arrange meetings with Petra, so she can make her own decisions. While HuggyBear should think how to make Petra better player next yeat but he probaly drinks beer with Černošek while they kids play ball in backyard

I hate him and Petra for playing in extraliga, i would be happy if she plays in some stupid exhos around the world but NOT in extraliga

You forgot Cowboys, team full of talent that everybody loves despite being disappointment with crappy gutless coach who don't know what to do and money hungry GM\Owner who thinks his smarter that anybody making his own decisions

A) She will say No. Everybody will respect her decision.

But

B ) She will say Maybe or I don´t know and there will be pressure.

Černošek „ Look I agreed she will play the Czech league final. I suppose I can manage she will play Fed Cup.
OK, thanks Paulmara. I kinda figured out the first part after re-reading it (when Petra said "I don't want to talk about it").

Mmmmh. It's interesting she decided not to play Fed Cup next year. See, I wasn't even aware of that.

And I don't like how Černošek talks about Petra's activities. He openly acts like he controls her. And he's so arrogant, he doesn't seem like he cares that anyone notices (I guess that's the Czech Press, he's so comfortable with ).

I know QPF said to be positive. But how can we be--when we see quotes like this? It's obvious (or at least I think it is), that even Kotyza and Petra realize she shouldn't play Czech league and Fed Cup next season. Nonetheless, here you have Černošek making her play Czech league and almost guaranteeing she will play Fed Cup. WTF!? And of course he has something to gain (on top of managing Petra) if she plays either.

What a greedy, spineless, self absorbed slob.

Where/when is the players best interest being sought?

SMH

Speaking of Ivan, I'm watching Murray-Fedex and the commentators are again praising his impact on Andy, I wouldn't be suprised if Ivan was soon invited to the Buckingham Palace and received the Order of British Empire

BTW, Boris Becker's English sucks

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

@Shifty

You notice, Černošek never said he asked "asked Lendl" anything. He just mentioned that Lendl told him, 'Petra clearly belongs in the Top 5 and should return'. Duh (about Lendl saying she's clearly top 5)!

That was probably Lendl's way of throwing shade and saying saying,"you guys are not doing your job". I'm sure he knows their negligent.

Funny video.

BTW, where are you reading he wasn't pleased? He said he was totally/absolutely satisfied.

His 'best' comment though: "I am not a tennis expert"

If he really believes he's not a "tennis expert", then why does he make the first line suggestions, that his REAL TENNIS PEOPLE respond to after?

That's because, he's a MONEY, CONTROL, CRONYISM expert, and he seems more concerned about that, than anything else (or at least before the tennis).

You would think the players, coaches and advisers (we know she doesn't have any, outside of him), would know more about, or at the least 'in addition' to her manager'.

He's just a businessmen with a self serving network and interest. Just look at the pressure he put on Petra in the extended interview, by basically saying 'The Czech Republic would be hard pressed to win the Fed Cup with out her'. How dare him! Where's the professionalism? If he works for her, he should be more careful what he says (Obviously, he doesn't care). He acts so entitled.

Unfortunately, unless things change dramatically, I don't think Petra will ever care or notice and take control of her career.

Talk about an understatement;that's like if Barney Fife said,"I'm not QUITE ready to be the director of the FBI."

I hope that Petra brings Prosto to their next meeting;I can sense a serious spraying taking place all over dude's dress pants and shoes...and that stench will NEVER go away

Yeah, there were some empty VIP seats. That's the way life is - some tickets go to corporate officers, politicians, etc. who don't bother to show up. But overall the arena was packed and he (his agency) made a nice profit.

The Davis Cup final is even a bigger event and will be probably even more profitable. The only drawback is that they had to pay some compensation to the organizers of the dance show that had been originally scheduled for the O2 arena.

On the other hand, let's give the guy some credit. He is one of the reasons why the Czech tennis system is probably the most effective in the world on per capita basis. Besides the FedCup & DavisCup success, no other country was represented at the recent WTA and ATP finals in all four disciplines.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Struggling to clarify exactly what people are discussing, beyond the "Petra's team is still not making good decisions" bit, which comes across clearly. What is wrong with Cernosek? Who is Cernosek? I presume he's a very rich Czech person, maybe a bit like Rupert Murdoch? Maybe disliked by many in a similar way? It seems that he is involved in Petra's team decisions and people are concerned that he is actually the one making all the decisions. Do people think that this might result in Petra not getting the ideal fitness/conditioning person for her, because the job would go to someone with connections to Cernosek instead? And why do people not want Petra to play extraliga? I had heard that it was common for pros to play a bit of extraliga, and it only lasts about one week right, unlike the regular interclub? My impression of European interclub was that it was very strong and a lot of pros play in France, Germany, Czech rep, but do people think that players as highly ranked as Petra usually do not play? Does Berdych play Czech interclub? I've never followed extraliga but I've heard of it.

Agreed Petronius (though I'm sure the Czech school/Phys Ed system has something to do with it as well). Csernosek, just takes the best candidates and molds them at his facility. And it should stay that way.

The problem is, he's got his hand in the cookie Jar in too many places (development, management, coaching decisions and politics). And what's always best for him, is not always best for Petra. That's the problem.

There's no excuse for Petra not having a regular hitting partner, doctors that take three years to find the proper inhalers, senior advisers, tennis specialist, etc. We been through all this.

On top of that: Now we know why Martina Navratilova complains on Tennis Channel why Petra doesn't contact her. She's probably forbidden.

The bottom line is this: If you're a tennis player, and you can't get the best people (but can afford it/have access), because of your Manager---who's so expendable--it's a conflict of interest. I couldn't care less what he does in the Czech Republic. That's another issue/argument. God Bless him.

And he's not even a coach. The Czech Republic has a rich tennis history, and I'm sure if he didn't own the facility, someone else would (or someone else in the Government would hook some one else up).
