Thanks for your contribution and welcome to the forum.I don't know if it impacted your choice of questions or not,but it's probably harder to interview tenistas than other athletes,partly because many of them will never grant you an interview again if you ask a question that's too candid(am talking about FAIR,not sordid,questions).I'd like to think that Petra isn't nearly as big of a diva as other players in that respect,but I can't accurately comment on that.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Those frenchies really know how to write politely about the match and players

http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/ne...827705885.html

Quote:
No.7 seed Petra Kvitova certainly did not have things her own way, edging out French wild card Aravane Rezai 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 in a match that was far from easy to watch.

The 2011 Wimbledon champion was cruising in the early going only to falter when serving for the set. Rezai broke back 3-5, but Kvitova then broke again to take the set. That should have signalled a comfortable victory for the Fed Cup winner, but her opponent was determined to make the most of an hour or two on a show-court Ė something that once was par for the course but is now becoming an increasingly rare commodity.

Rezai is a far cry from the player who won the Madrid WTA Premier tournament in 2010. She is suffering from a hormonal disorder which is best treated by drugs which are banned in tennis and has plummeted to No.185 in the world. She currently has no coach and is battling with weight problems and confidence issues. And somehow she managed to put all this behind her in the second, breaking early, surviving a break-back and concluding with four games in a row to level the match and break to open the third.

With neither player serving as they would like or moving around the heavy court with any fluidity, the match was a staccato one. Rezai tried to conserve the initiative but the scoreline soon proved too good to be true. As the Frenchwoman tired, Kvitova took the match in hand and stumbled, rather than cruised home.

The big-hitting Czech made the semi-finals here last year, but on current form she will have her work cut out if she is to defend those points against opponents with more clay-court skills and better movement as the tournament progresses.

I know, also it was reported that she has pain in it and i bet you it won't be okay if she play another 3 set match vs Peng, all season long since Aussie summer after they adjusted her routine she has problem with it after few matches and whole mental thing really starts to annoy me, since her mental coach started working with her it's getting worse and worse on mental front. first it was i have mental block getting used to new routine then i started to have problem with my focus then i can't clear my head over some irrelevant mistakes and now her shoulder and being afraid of df. What next? afraid of winning or walking on hard courts? She always accepted DFs and they didn't bothered her because it was byproduct of her game and now suddenly she afraid to make them, naturally this things lead to making them, on top of that problem with shoulder that hinders her serve even more Girl slowly goes nowhere and i don't even want to mention going AWOL when confronted about her issues by media

He sounds very sophisticated, but his first real tennis tournament was Katowice. I hope Adam support her.

Well,at least they have a couple credible players in France.We KNOW that we suck at tennis,so our hacks wouldn't even waste any energy pretending that our #1 player(Marcela Zacarias,IIRC--not even in the Top 400)gave Petra a close match.Petra might tank one game just to prevent our gal from being totally embarrassed;otherwise,it'd probably be a 45-minute double bagel

BTW, I expect Lukas to take out Nadal AGAIN (They're due to clash in the third round, if they both make it).

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Was unaware that Petra was teaming up with Magda in doubles(in re Jack's post in the Twitter thread).Petra's doubles results are usually so modest that I don't expect too much from them.I'm content when Petra does well in Singles but,if she ever DOES get better at Dubs(especially to the end that she wins titles),then more power to her
