You're right, in fact, according to the record, all of their matches (GS or not) end with three-setter, 3 tiebreaks, 3 (7-5) and 1 (8-6)

I didn't watch their match in FO 08 (I didn't know her at that time), but the quarter final in Wimby last year is just extraordinary for Petra

Yep. NBC even went to it, which, for them, at that time, was extraordainary in it's own right. Maybe Kanepi doesn't feel so bad about losing that match after seeing what Petra has done since.

You know how long that article was (and I think that was the 5th one in a row I put in to)? Lol. Yeah. But some of those things you pointed out were pretty clear (Madrid-Top 10, Petra born in Bilovec). I should of saw those.

But on balance, there was lots of info many articles don't cover.

Thanks

It's funny how much of the subtlety of the game you miss on computer (even after seeing it first on television).

ESPN 3 is great and I love it, but unless you pipe it to your TV you miss things like the trajectory of the serve, and how it pulls away, etc. from the returner.

Petra served quite well in this game. She just got broken twice in the 2nd set, cause of those 3 bone head errors she made with the three sitters she missed at the net.

Though I've seen her serve better, she had a lot of action on her serve and handcuffed Maria most of the night. She had a lot of movement, and served a bunch of nonreturnables or received sitters for Petra to easily crush (the Ole 1, 2). Lol

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Atrocious pun in the title, but no howlers and gets the fundamentals right:

Uma checa com cobertura

Na final feminina da 125ª edição de Wimbledon, a checa Petra Kvitova derrotou Maria Sharapova em circunstâncias muito semelhantes ao do triunfo da russa em 2004 – e recebeu um cheque de 1,2 milhões de euros. É a primeira campeã de um torneio do Grand Slam nascida na década de 90.

02 Julho 2011

Por: Miguel Seabra, em Londres

http://www.cmjornal.xl.pt/detalhe/no...-com-cobertura

À partida para a final individual feminina da 125ª de Wimbledon colocava-se uma questão: seria o peso da experiência a determinar a vencedora ou prevaleceria a inconsciência de quem não tem nada a perder? Petra Kvitova, de 21 anos, respondeu à pergunta em apenas 88 minutos ao derrotar Maria Sharapova, de 24, por concludentes 6-3 e 6-4 - selando o triunfo com um jogo de serviço em branco coroado com um ás no match-point. Mais do que o cheque de 1,2 milhões de euros, o triunfo na Catedral do Ténis permite à jovem checa saltar para o estrelato.

E nem precisou de sofrer muito. Com os prognósticos a penderem para o lado de Sharapova devido ao seu superior currículo e gradual regresso ao melhor nível após uma complicada operação ao ombro, Kvitova surgiu no mais mítico de todos os palcos da modalidade particularmente relaxada - mostrando-se ainda mais ofensiva do que a sua agressiva adversária e não tremendo perante a solenidade da ocasião. Com as suas pancadas chapadas e profundas alternadas com ocasionais bolas em slice mais delicadas, a checa conseguiu sobretudo servir melhor e tirar o máximo partido do facto de ser esquerdina.

PATINHO FEIO TRANSFORMADO EM CISNE
A vitória da filha do vice-presidente da junta de Bilovec foi tão concludente que não sofre contestação. Até pode parecer que surgiu do nada para os mais incautos, mas os mais atentos constatarão que Petra Kvitova já apareceu em Wimbledon como número 8 do ranking (sai como número 7) e sobretudo com três títulos conquistados em 2011 graças a um elevado nível de jogo apresentado nos hardcourts de Brisbane, no recinto coberto de Paris e na terra batida de Madrid.

O triunfo alcançado na relva do Centre Court constitui o quarto troféu em quatro diferentes superfícies em 2011 e faz com que ultrapasse em importância de palmarés as suas até agora mais credenciadas colegas de geração - como a dinamarquesa Caroline Wozniacki (a contestada número um mundial por ainda não ter logrado vencer um Grand Slam), a bielorrussa Victoria Azarenka (a quem derrotou nas meias-finais) ou a polaca Agnieszka Radwanska (também com credenciais de top 10).

Kvitova desde cedo revelou uma notável capacidade de aceleração, mas até há dois anos apresentava excesso de peso, até mesmo quando ganhou o primeiro título da sua carreira em Hobart. Mas afinou a dieta, apurou a condição física e no ano passado deu claros evidentes de ser talhada para jogar em rápidos pisos relvados ao atingir as meias-finais de Wimbledon. Este ano, para além dos três títulos, chegou à final do evento de relva de Eastbourne na semana imediatamente anterior a Wimbledon.

CHORO DE FELICIDADE
Acompanhada no camarote real pelas suas compatriotas Martina Navratilova (última esquerdina antes dela a ganhar Wimbledon em 1990) e Jana Novotna (última checa a ganhar Wimbledon, em 1998), Petra Kvitova ajoelhou-se no momento da vitória e sobretudo emocionou-se quando viu todo o galarim de campeões a aplaudi-la enquanto estava a ser entrevistada. O choro veio depois.

"Encontrei-me com a Martina e a Jana. Elas estavam tão contentes por mim. E chorei depois de falar com elas". Não foi a única: "O meu pai também chorou e ainda deve estar a chorar; ele chora sempre depois dos meus encontros".

Mas, durante a final, geriu muito melhor as emoções do que os entusiasmados membros da sua família e equipa técnica que saltavam de contentamento no correspondente camarote: "Combinei com os meus treinadores encarar esta final como se fosse um embate dos oitavos-de-final. Acho que foi o melhor encontro que joguei. Fiquei surpreendida com a minha concentração, porque estava focalizada em jogar ponto a ponto e não pensei no título", confessou. "O encontro ficaria decidido sobretudo no serviço e na resposta ao serviço. E eu, mesmo que não tenha servido tão bem, respondi muito bem".

MARIA DE REGRESSO
Quanto a Maria Sharapova, não logrou aperfeiçoar um currículo global de 23 títulos (mais 18 do que a sua algoz deste sábado) e três Grand Slams. Ganhou Wimbledon em 2004, o US Open em 2006 e o Open da Austrália em 2008. Como perdeu a final do Open da Austrália em 2007 e agora a de Wimbledon em 2011, parece que os anos ímpares não querem nada com ela. Mas o seu trajecto desde Março indica que a ‘Sereia da Sibéria' está a recuperar o seu nível de jogo perdido com uma nefasta lesão no ombro que necessitou de cirurgia em 2008: foi semifinalista em Indian Wells, finalista em Miami, campeã em Roma, semifinalista em Roland Garros e finalista em Wimbledon.

Será seguramente uma das protagonistas na temporada americana em hardcourts que irá desembocar no US Open, em Setembro. E poderá melhorar significattivamente o quinto lugar na hierarquia que passa a ocupar - tal como Petra Kvitova, que tem poucos pontos a defender até ao final do ano. "Ela jogou de maneira incrível, conseguindo pontos ganhantes de todos os pontos do court; foi mais agressiva do que eu", admitiu a russa; "jogou como se não tivesse nada a perder e aproveitou muito bem o facto de ser esquerdina, mas considero que já foi um passo importante para mim estar na final e saio com muita confiança para o resto do ano".

Petra Kvitova tornou-se, aos 21 anos, a mais jovem campeã de Wimbledon desde que Maria Sharapova bateu, então com 17 anos, Serena Williams na final de 2004. A russa conheceu hoje o reverso da medalha -e a checa tornou-se na primeira jogadora nascida na década de 90 a ganhar um título do Grand Slam.

Czechs scramble to air Kvitová’s Wimbledon final

Czech tennis player Petra Kvitová’s battle to win Wimbledon will be screened live in her home country after last-minute schedule changes

| 01.07.2011 - 13:23

http://www.ceskapozice.cz/en/news/so...imbledon-final
© ČTK
Petra Kvitová has rocketed up the rankings, but her opponent in Saturday's final is looking to get back where she believes she belongs



Czechs will be given a chance to see home tennis player Petra Kvitová compete for her first Grand Slam and Wimbledon singles crown on television with the country’s main commercial broadcaster, TV Nova, scrapping its planned broadcasts to screen Saturday’s match live.

Powerful left-hander Kvitová is attempting to be the first Czech to win the women’s singles title since Jana Novotná triumphed on Wimbledon’s grass 13 years ago.


The six-foot-tall Czech, currently ranked eighth in the world, faces fifth seed Maria Sharapova; the 24-year-old Russian is probably the slight favorite going into the match because of her experience in grand slam finals, including a Wimbledown singles win in 2004. Kvitová was also on the losing end the only time she played Sharapova

Kvitová was also on the losing end the only time she played Sharapova, but that was on a hard court in the US and the Czech 21-year-old is looking good on grass after already getting to the final of the Wimbledon warm-up tournament in Eastbourne. Kvitová has been on a great run this year, beginning 2011 with only her second career title at the Brisbane International

Kvitová has been on a great run this year, beginning 2011 with only her second career title at the Brisbane International and going on to reach the semi-finals of the Australian Open. With 36 matches won against eight losses, she had rocketed up the rankings in 2011 after being placed in thirty-fourth position at the end of 2010. She turned professional in 2006.

Model performance?

Unlike Sharapova, whose modeling and sponsorship career has sometimes appeared to overshadow her on court performances, Kvitová has largely kept out of the public spotlight, even in her home country.

Like many tennis players, the Czech believes in sticking with off-court customs that apparently bring her luck and stave off defeat. Her parents deliberately stayed away from Thursday’s three-set semi-final match against Victoria Azarenka from Belarus.

They travelled last year to Wimbledon from their small home town of Fulnek, around 6,000 inhabitants in the far east of the Czech Republic, only to see their daughter lose in the semifinal against Serena Williams.‘My wife said we should stay at home so we wouldn’t change her luck. But to see your daughter with your own eyes at Wimbledon ...’

“We agreed beforehand with Petra that we would not go to Wimbledon for the semi-finals,” father Jiří Kvita told Friday’s edition of the daily Sport. “When she was a youngster, we used to keep to the same rituals. When everything went well and she won, we’d keep to the same clothes and that sort of thing,” he added.

But Kvitová’s parents are on the way to Wimbledom for Saturday’s final. “My wife said we should stay at home so we wouldn’t change her luck. But to see your daughter with your own eyes in a Wimbledon final ...” commented Kvita.

More courageous

Besides luck, Kvitová puts her fast progress this year up the rankings to her confidence to go all out and attempt to hit winners on big crucial points, even when she faces a break-point. Before, she says, she played too cautiously. With her heavy ground strokes well honed and picking out the corners, that strategy has paid off so far.

Kvitová’ parents, two brothers, and hundreds of thousands of Czech will be watching to see if her fairytale Wimbledon will be crowned with success on Saturday.

Wimbledon winner Kvitová honored by home town

Czech Wimbledon women's singles winner Petra Kvitová has been made an honorary citizen of her home town

06.07.2011 - 09:41

http://www.ceskapozice.cz/en/news/so...ored-home-town
© ČTK



Czech Wimbledon women’s singles winner Petra Kvitová has been named an honorary citizen by her home town of Fulnek in the far east of the country.

The 21-year-old becomes the second Czech to be so honored by the town of just under 6,000, following in the footsteps of the seventeenth century teacher and writer Jan Amos Komenský (John Amos Comenius).

Town mayor Jana Mocová said councillors voted unanimously for the move, regardless of their political affiliations, at a special session.

"This is a phenomenal victory, Petra deserves a fantastic welcome"

Left-handed Kvitová won in straight sets against the favorite, Russia’s Maria Sharapova, on Saturday with a powerful of display of serving and ground strokes which her opponent could not handle. She became the first Czech woman to take the women’s singles title since Jana Novotná triumphed 13 years ago.

Citizens of Fulnek have been invited to welcome their Wimbledon champion home on Friday afternoon at special celebrations being staged in the town square. "This is a phenomenal victory, Petra deserves a fantastic welcome," the town council said on its website.

Presidential invitation

Kvitová has also been invited by Czech President and keen tennis player Václav Klaus to his official seat, Prague Castle, on Thursday so that he can personally congratulate her. He said on his official website that he followed Saturday’s match live and willed her to win from his heart.

Wimbledon’s Kvitová to add zero to marketing earnings

Czech tennis star Petra Kvitová has boosted her marketing earnings potential from tens to hundreds of millions of crowns, manager says

| 07.07.2011 - 11:54

Ready to make a bit hit on the marketing scene

http://www.ceskapozice.cz/en/busines...eting-earnings

Wimbledon women’s singles winner Petra Kvitová has boosted her earning potential from sponsorship and marketing from tens of millions to hundreds of millions of crowns thanks to her Grand Slam victory, according to her manager.

“Before, Petra’s marketing potential was in the range of seven zeros but it is now in the range of eight,” her marketing manager Miroslav Černošek told the news server iDnes.cz. “Companies are fighting to get Petra, and every day I am getting phone calls. Wimbledon is the icon of the tennis world, and unlike a lot of other sports where there are exceptional Czech sportswomen, it is a global sport with lots of successful companies.”‘Companies are fighting to get Petra, and every day I am getting phone calls.’


Černošek added that the 21-year-old’s winning smile — displayed to fill effect during Saturday’s straight sets win against Maria Sharapova, was attractive to companies and that the Wimbledon triumph could bring Kvitová’s personality to the fore for a worldwide audience.

European appeal

Winning one of the two European Grand Slam tournaments, the other being the French Open, was a plus since it was better for tapping European companies and sponsors, he added. “Australia and the US are for them a bit too far away,” he added.

At the moment, however, Kvitová has a recently renewed contract with US sports company Nike and cooperation deal with US tennis racket maker Wilson. Černošek said that he has a gentleman’s agreement with Nike that the recently signed three-year deal would be renewed on better terms if Kvitová won a Grand Slam tournament. The new deal should be signed and sealed at the US Open at the end of August, start of September, he added.

Existing sponsorship and marketing deals include one with Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin and Romanian-based clothes company Steilmann.

On her small home market of 10.5 million people, Kvitová’s chances to cash in on her new fame are more limited. Nevertheless, a new deal has already been sealed with one of the country’s biggest companies, state-controlled energy giant ČEZ, already one of the main sponsors of Czech sporting personalities and events.

Energy deal

“She [Kvitová] will be the face of one of ČEZ’s products. It’s apparent that one of the strongest Czech firms can see her potential,” Černošek told iDnes.cz. The deal with ČEZ director Martin Roman was signed on the spot in London, he added.

Černošek is already dreaming of Kvitová’s soaring earning potential, if, for example, she could successfully defend her Wimbledon title next year and all win the Olympics title, also taking place in London.

His young marketing asset should also get more of the spotlight in Czech team competitions, for example the mouthwatering Fed Cup final against Russia on November 5 and 6 in Moscow. Whether that match will pitch Kvitová again against her Wimbledon final opponent Sharapova is unclear. Sharapova did not play in the Russian semifinal 5-0 whitewash of defending Fed Cup winner Italy in April, with Vera Zvonareva leading the Russians to victory.

Cool Re: Petra Kvitova's next tournament

The people at the Mercury Insurance Tournament in Carlsbad, CA (part of my hometown San Diego,CA) must be crying. Petra will not be playing there as had been announced. She told me today at an autograph signing here in Prague that her next tournament will be in Toronto, Canada instead. She's going to use it as a tune up for the US Open. This news broke my heart because I had written for her a list of the 5 best places to go in my beautiful San Diego. When I showed her my list and told her why I had made it (for her) she just giggled and hid her face. That's okay. I still love her.

My Czech friends would appreciate your kind words.

Currently, our greatest athlete is Martina Sablikova the Olympic multi-medal winning speed skater from Nové Město na Moravě. In Vancouver she won two Golds and a Silver!!! She is also from a small city and extremely humble despite her many accomplishments.

Please read her story on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martina_Sablikova

That's a shame. Every athlete or sportsfan should learn about Martina. Considering her training methods and opportunities for training, it's a miracle she's even a world's top ten skater let alone THE BEST in the world. But that's just how awesome she is. God bless her. And god bless her for not defecting to Holland although noboby could blame her for doing so. In CZ, we don't even have a proper skating rink for her to practice in. Sad but true. QPF

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

After looking at that slideshow, I found out that there's a lot of stuff at the Blesk website. The least bad/sensational articles were a few interviews that can be sort of decyphered through an automated translator.

I) With Jiri Kvita. He talks about Kvitty starting to work at Prostejov with Matej Liptar, about her personality as a teen, etc.

II) With Kvitty during the day in which she met the President and did her publicity tour:
