Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

I just read it. Very nice to read about Petra's stories growing up, so it was her father who taught Petra her strokes right? Well he is a teacher after all. It was so touching to see him crying at Wimbledon

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

"Touching"? Im not sure if thats the right description of the feeling. He was doing his own best for her while she was young. At some moment she decided he doesn't have more to give, so she left to Prostejov. He felt quite embrarassed/betrayed until he found out that this was the only right choice for her. He did his part perfectly and she did what would be the best for her at the right time.
I think, at the second Wimbledon final match, he just found out that it was all just right and he won this "match of the life" together with his daugther.
I wish i have father like that.

Are you sure?
I just cannot buy this vision of the 16 year old Petra who just finished primary school saying "Dad, you're fired! I'm going to the Prostejov Club."

I think it was rather them (Cernosek and his scouts) who found out about her and convinced her parents that they will give her everything she needs if she joins their club and signs the contract with the devil.

It's not that bad after all, I was a little worried at the start of the interview but the questions got a bit more interesting at the end.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Does the lack of ambitions limit PK? I've just read a Q&A article with PK and I find her answers alarming. Not only she says that she has already achieved what she had WANTED to achieve this year (a slam), but also that she would be fine hadn't she made it to Singapore. A player of her calibre should have a desire to conquer the Tour, don't you think? She also gives FED Cup a slight preference to the YEC. I would rather see her win the YEC than FED Cup, preferably both of course.


This is a Google translation of the article. Focus on the last two answers.

This transition was much more complicated, than both of you might think...

That maxi-desire is good for those like Radwa or Woz, who always wanted to climb the top declaring it in several press interviews, but actually never did it (still being slamless, YEC-less). Petra neednt mention to press, which all trophies she still wants to get. She better shows that on the court and thats much better...
