That very much sounds like something Petra has said...

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Seriously, I don't see how this will work out good unless they get her to bend over backwards.

Petra is just not the type of streamlined PR doll IMG usually works with, it's simply is not a good fit. The marketing BS quote above is a good first example, such stuff is simply not believable when it comes to Petra.

But I guess her management played a hand in this.

better marketing, better sponsors deals, more attention and worldwide recognition, more appearance fees for her. also this could lead potentially to some deals with top tier coaches but it's only speculation on my part because article only talks about deal with marketing department of IMG not other one, it would be nice if she ditched CR

This sounds a bit better.

Please, IMG marketing department works with all kinds of players in all sports and does a good job, only Rock Nation is better but it's way to US focused and they don't work with tennis players

Still, she does not seem like she enjoys this stuff at all. She called the post-Wimby press interest a "circus". That is not exactly a player that is easy to market, it's much easer with attention whores who crave to have as many photoshoots as possible.

That does not sound like Petra to me.

With IMG, she can focus on deals with big players and don't waste her time on exhausting amount of mom'n'pop endorsements. Most likely, she'll spend more time abroad, which can help her self-esteem, English and tennis eagerness. That's how I see it. If they can help her with coaching as well, it's great.

Can we at least get a hitting partner first?

Had to say that.

Okay, back to your response. Appreciate your comments, but I think you're reading too much into them.

If Steffi Graf, could be a big time endorser, so can Petra. Let's be honest. Who was more more serious, straightforward, and all business than Steffi? No one outside of Germany and Andre ever thinks she has a personality (whether true or not).

I'm not sure who behind this decision for Petra. However, not only am I glad that she hooked up with IMG. More importantly, Petra's got the personality for it.

Though she relishes her private time, she's also quite funny, friendly and charming when speaking English in front of the camera. Petra's got a nice personality.

I look at the Citizen commercials here with Vika and her poor English and say, why can't that be Petra? I'm sure someone in her camp or IMG must have said the same thing.

Obviously, Petra's going to be expected to perform better. However, that may be a good thing, especially if she starts to listen or consult with other tennis coaching/advisors (not that this deal entails that component. It appears not).

The irony is: Why the hell did she hook up with Cersonek in the first place, when you could have been internationally marketed since you won Wimby in 2011 (not that would have helped her suckage)?

Cersonek, was never going to help her market internationally to begin with.

I guess someone opened up Petra's mind to more possibilities?

If anything: This can/will teach Petra some more professionalism, and remind Petra, "This is your Career/Job, with people relying on you, not just something you do for fun when you feel like playing Petra".

Well, there is marketing and there is straight out pimping ala some of Stacey's poor attempts with Genie and Sloane where you just have to feel sorry for the players. Petra enjoyed some of magazine appearances and all those Nike commercial she was doing before. It will be just like this but little more, also now at those irrelevant MMs and lesser Premiers she will be headlined as main contender. I doubt she will turn into La Borz who had more off court sponsorship commitments then combined time she spent on court.

Another good example is Vichka, she is not really marketable nor she has classic pr blondie look but her agent doing really good job

Agreed.

Petra's going to have to learn to accept the challenge of working with such a great firm, and learn to be more of a professional.

Hopefully, this will translate into other areas of her personality and tennis.

Unfortunately, I feel as long as Cersonek's involved, the quality of her tennis coaches and advisors may not change much (hope I'm wrong). So Petra's going to have to make the changes and maturity development herself.

She's so far behind the other top 5 players when it comes to the quality and diversity of her tennis and support team. You get the best people, and/or those your most comfortable with, not the crumbs that Cersonek can cobble up for you, when you lose another one of his lackeys.
