Because if she produces good ROS, the next shot should be a winner and in turn should not induce long rallies, which could favour the Belgian.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

According to article on sport.cz Kristian Bajza had to drive away, he told the phisios how to tape her.

Why she give any paycheck to this guy? He refuses to work all the time!

But it's not only Wimbledon, he doesn't want to travel or can't travel to almost everywhere. Why he works as a fitness trainer when he can't travel outside of Czech republic or is ill too often to keep an eye on Petra and work with her on tournaments.

Because Flipper is tricky opponent for Petra, has more dangerous slice BH and leads their match H2H 2:1. But he believes that Petra will add something more because this is a QF.

They are expacting very tough battle. Flipkens is not Petra´s favourite opponent. Petra will fight becasue it is QF but it can get ugly.

Ok; guess it was a translation thing ("disgusting").

I hope this means, Petra will be prepared, and for an entire match for a change, this Wimbledon.

She's been BS'ing her way through so far. Hopefully, she'll up the level abit to her 2nd day/3rd set Makarova levels from the start this time??

Petra has to go into the match, like "I'm a winner, former champion here, and I'm going to fight, and play like it".

When was the last time they played, and before that, if you know (you don't have to look it up)?

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Petra should watch today's matchs of Berdych vs Tomic. Tomas is doing quite well in handling slices by counter-slicing and then going for the net for example.

They met this year in Miami, where Petra stole one set from her by 6-4 but was bageled once, but that's a little irrelevant as Miami is in very humid climate.
They also met last year when Petra defeated her, it was in two sets and during Fed Cup. First meeting was in Hobart in 2010 and Petra was defeated by Flipper in last round of qualification in two sets. I wasn't so hard to look it up.

Okay, I remember Miami now.

You're right, that doesn't count, really (though it's recent).

Fed Cup Ok, that was relatively recent.

And in 2010, Petra was losing to almost everyone, for most of the year.

Thanks

My bad, Fed Cup match wasn't last year but in 2011. Doesn't matter though, she did great in Fed Cup in 2011 and 2012 too.
