Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

PS Jack:

On your earlier comments, regarding Petra's fitness trainer.

You notice, I try to stay out of (as best I can), most of the behind the scenes Petra Team Drama/speculation/criticism, and just criticize her or her team, for What I see.

Been there, done that, so many times the past two years.

However, your complaints and frustration, do raise some questions, and only reinforce the early speculation, that this guy was not going to be worth much, or world class to begin with.

More importantly, it appears that Petra and her team, have scaled back on any semblance of trying to improve Petra with full time, additional, legitimate, and outside team members, and that's a shame.

Sadly (based off their actions), it doesn't appear, they are trying to get Petra back to the highest levels.

Unfortunately, it looks that way.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Petra was very nervous and gave herself B for serving

Didn't read the article. But WTF is she nervous about, and why is that always an excuse now for poor play now.

What is she going to do and say, when she knows Serena's out (her recent Wimby nemesis), and she sees Flipkens standing at the other side of the net, between her and reaching the semi-finals. How nervous, you going to be then Kvitty?

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Petra is overestimating the pressure. It's not as bad as she's making it out to be. Sure, she's the highest seed left in the bottom half, but nobody is paying that much attention to her. She's working herself up over nothing.

It's from her presser, part of interview with Czech media, tho she said almost the same to English speaking media, like i said earlier full version would be very depressing for you listen

Absolutely.

I understand, Petra's been struggling and trying to find herself recently. However, she's got to realize the golden opportunity she has here (for a myriad of reasons), and go for it. This is where a players team normally comes in, to establish a their game and mental preparation.

Petra can't wait till the match starts, then see how it goes from there. She's got to always be positive and hungry as long as she's alive. I know you also mentioned being physically prepared, though I'm not sure how much more it can be in a 1 or two day period?

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

She seems kind of unfocused and lackadaisical. I can't tell if she genuiley feels that way or if I'm taking her calmness out of context. She might just be trying to stay calm because she knows how big of a chance she has.

IDK.. I hope she wants it.

It's a catch 22 (American phrase).

One one hand you want to be humble and tamp down expectations. But on the other hand (like you said), it's more internal by Petra, cause no ones really picking her to win like that. She's just one of many, who just happens to be the 2011 Champion, and highest remaining seed in the bottom half.

I know she lacks confidence now. So I would at least hope her determination, belief and perseverance, would be strong enough for her to play well Tuesday??

It's hardly Petra's specialty. Serena was nervous as hell (as observed by commentators) and deservedly lost.
