Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

To any Czechs here, Please post any video coverage of Petra at the Czech tennis awards event---it doesn't really matter at all that I don't know the tongue b/c I'll be able to feel the mood of the event and figure out a lot just by watching the body language of Petra and others

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

She looked a bit shy and awkward back then and those teeth...
She has really made a huge improvement in every department since then.

It's also a strange truth, that most Czechs I've met have worse feelings toward Germans than towards Russians
I think the reason may be geographic. Germany is a big powerful country situated right next door, while Russia, though big and powerful, is far away and not considered as a major threat any more.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Lindsay Davenport's comments, while picking Kvitova vs Sharapova, at Wimbledon as her favorite match this year for Tennis Channels, Top 30 (ATP or WTA) matches of the year.

Quote:
"My favorite match was the Wimbledon final between Petra Kvitova and Maria Sharapova. I really had no idea what to expect of this final. It's not easy for most players to play their best (or near their best) in their first Slam final, and Maria really had a ton of momentum going into the match. But it was apparent early on that Kvitova was ready to ascend to the top. This was one of the few matches that I've been able to just sit and watch live... and it was a treat. The sound of Kvitova's ground strokes was unlike any I had heard; very clean, very strong. It was so apparent she had become the best ball striker now in women's tennis. After watching and playing against Maria for years, I know the strategy: try and take the play out of her hands by striking early in the rally, but it is not easy to do. Kvitova had no problem doing this throughout the match. Hard, heavy ground strokes, huge returns and a big serving day. It was an honor to see this shy Czech lady come out of her shell on the biggest stage."—Lindsay Davenport
It's one ex-players opinion, but it's amazing how many old, out of touch Venus and Serena fans, say that those players still hit the ball harder than Petra, or even Clijsters is up there with her.

WTF. Thank You Lindsay for establishing some order to this. Lol

PS: Martina picked Stosur vs Williams for a few reasons. But one of the reasons why she said she picked that match, was because "Kvitova's win (at Wimbledon) was great but not as much of a surprise."

You go Martina! You tell em, and set the record straight! Lol

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Sometimes announcers,even ex-players,get overly gushy with their commentary... at times I wonder--if it's so obvious--why they didn't notice Petra's ball-striking ability before she got more famous.Still,the fact that Petra is doing it,at a high level,is far more important than being praised for it in the mainstream press

Great find. Just posted it in the GM as a new thread, expecting a lot of funny comments, especially from Masha supporters and Petra haters. It's off-season after all!

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

@Petronius.

Yeah. Lol.

Lindsay had made those comments earlier this year, after Wimbledon, and I posted them. And yes, those same people you mentioned, didn't want to hear/believe Lindsay then; so I'm glad she repeated herself for their Top 30 (and our amusement). Lol

As far as why these reporters/broadcasters take so long to recognize certain players; in Lindsay's (like a lot of American Reporters), she just hadn't watched Petra play.

I remember when Martina picked Petra to do well at the French Open and to win Wimbledon, Lindsay admitted/said "Martina I don't know much about Kvitova, I haven't really seen her play". That's the truth. Lol

A lot of these folks (especially Tennis Channel reporters, except Martina) didn't really watch Petra play, till the Wimbledon semi-final or finals this year.

Many of the European, some Australian, and even less American broadcasters, were well ahead on the Petra curve, though.

Well,GM is the ideal place to go agitate immature people--it seems designed for that,really.You DO realize,right,that the amount of Petra-haters will only increase if you shove Petra's victories in the faces of the fans of players whom she defeated???Don't get me wrong;I don't care if mindless idiots get offended,but if you don't like the antipathy towards Petra in GM,then you're not helping that situation very much
