As if last year fall Kvitova is even comparable to this year 4 title winning Kvitova

I saw his article (and responded to it), and it sounds like the typical, knee jerk, un-researched, lazy reaction from a reporter who obviously hasn't closely followed Kvitova, or even bothered to take the time track her progression, or mental framework.

It doesn't mean that Petra won't have a bad US Hard court season (anything is possible), but based off of her improved form, consistency, confidence, rankings and recent earnings, I don't see how Bodo can make such a Flippant remark. But I'm not surprised!

I guess he had too many people to write about, and felt "hey Petra already got her obligatory Grandslam, She's happy now, so I'll focus on some others?" Lol.

The reality is, there are very few women that can beat Petra when she's on her form, and lets hope it translate to this US Hard court season, and in particular the US Open?

Yeah,I know it's Petra's life and she can do what she wants,blah,blah,blah...it's just that there are millions of guys available to her and I'd rather not see her choose a situation that could lead to long-term repercussions
Since when did you guys become soap opera addicts? I haven't read one word confirming anything romantic between Petra and TB. That doesn't mean it might not be true, but why are you guys perpetuating these trashy rumours if there's no evidence? Let's not judge her if there's no proof. Let's not even speculate. I'm shuddering in disgust just at the thought of it. I don't think she's that type of girl. I think she's got much more important things on her mind; like GSs.

Our girl is focused and in it to win it. TB is a logical choice as a doubles partner just because of their long friendship/relationship and skill levels. They could become quite a deadly tandem on the court. Why shouldn't they team up and expand their careers?

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Funny!

I agree Queen Petra Fan.

I cracked a innocent joke about it, next thing you know, folks are hearing rumors, etc. I was like Whoooaaaa? Lol. Now it's the old Telephone game, or like a chain letter. Lol.

But don't get too heated. It will all die and dissipate, I'm sure (especially when the Tennis starts). I don't think they're together either; not at all for that matter. How queasy would that be for Petra, at Fed Cup indeed, as has been stated? Lol.

Maybe some folks just felt her playing with Berdych, after his supposed Safarova break up (un-announced, un-offical break up, mind you), that Petra shouldn't be playing with Tomas (or is it cause some people just feel he's a mug now)? Lol. Oh well.

Now back on tennis. Someone on GM reminded us that, earlier this year, two participants in the Hoffman Cup actually made the Australian Open finals (Djoker & Murray). So maybe it wasn't such a bad/strange idea in the first place?

Go Petra. Hope you get a good draw today to (knock on Keyboard, Wood desk, and Plastic Monitor) in Toronto!

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Can't wait for monday. Or is she going to play first match on Tuesday? When do they usually publish the draw sheet for these bigger tournaments like Rogerscup? I check rogerscup.com every day for almost a week now and still nothing. Only wildcards have been announced.

It's supposed to be today at 5pm Eastern Time (North America).

You can watch it on their website supposedly.

There are some good links her on TF (upcoming tournaments, Rogers Cup) to their website; better than when I went on my own to find any relevant results/info. Lol.

Not sure when she starts? I guess we'll find that out this evening? Nonetheless, I hope it's on Tuesday. The more time she gets to acclimate herself to the conditions, courts and time zone the better.

Excelsior covers it pretty well above;commenting on speculation doesn't automatically equal gossip and,if there's no legit fuel for the fire,a rumor will eventually burn out

For sure. I was just kidding you guys. It's all BS I'm sure.

Tambien, Peter Bodo es un muy grande stupido puta madre! lol Not to mention, quite possibly a 'maricon'. Oh wait! that's that other hack writer.

Oh Yeah.

Forgot about the bye. I hope she starts Weds (though that may be too long for some of us), for my earlier stated reasons.

Have some additional comments for you in the off-topic thread,but it's fair to say that Bodo is as Americanized as Sharapova(though from different origins)and,like many American media,demands that he be titillated with flash and glamour as opposed to actual talent and greatness.Poorly-bred losers like Bodo are the ones who made a worthless,mindless show such as 'Friends' a hit for over a decade.Petra will have to dominate for quite a few years before the Gringos show her the respect she deserves....Not that it matters much since the rest of the world can see the obvious,excellent Petra-ness
