The main thing is, Petra is healthy at last, and she's bound to be much more fit than we've yet seen her this year. That alone ought to show in her results. And the fact that she is fitter will boost her confidence, which she sorely needs after that godawful U.S. tour.

(Does anybody have a clue what kind of return they might be talking about?)
What sort of return of serve is that unless if Petra has suddenly decided to return in chip/slice like Federer consistently does at times on opponent's second serves to deny them the first offensive strike in the exchange. Also on first serves too at times --

Or, probably related to the split step before contact (?) -- certain guys in ATP tennis have a split step forward to close on the ball and cut the trajectories (0:08, 0:15 etc. on the Youtube video), I can't think of any other player other than Murray or/and Federer who does that consistently though -- Nalbandian does it but it varies and theirs even Federer's isn't as comprehensive as Murray's.



Girls in the WTA have a tendency to just hop on place (Venus, Ana, Victoria, Radwanska...) and (like Julia)/or have a timid little hop forward (Serena, Maria, Li, Stosur, Cibulkova...), some have almost none (like Wozniacki), Petra she has 2 or 3 hops on place -- that's the assumptions we can have if she talks about timing etc. -- if it's related to the technique on return iDK and I really doubt this changes from ATP to WTA.

It will be exciting to see Petra in action next week, she hasn't played for a while.

Beyond that, I continue to be bemused at how often fans (aka people who don't even know their fave p-layer(s)) get in the business of thinking they know what's best for said player(s) in their personal lives.
I agree

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

WTA All-Access Hour Stuttgart Q&A:

Petra Kvitova

On clay...
"Before last year I didn't like clay too much - I preferred hardcourt and grass, just because they're faster and I'm more comfortable on them with my movement. But then I won Madrid and now I know I can play on clay too."

On Stuttgart...
"I am really looking forward to playing in Stuttgart. It's a beautiful tournament and it's my first time here, so I'm excited to play. I wanted to play last year too but had to withdraw after Fed Cup because I was injured. This year I'm ready to play. I came yesterday, but my first practice is after this All-Access Hour."

On the top group dominating the game...
"If you look at Vika, she played unbelievable at the start of this year. Maria's playing very well too, and Agnieszka won Miami - we have a lot of players at the top, but I don't know if someone will actually dominate women's tennis."

On why she chose Turkey in her recent training block...
"Why Turkey? That's probably a question for my fitness coach! It was my third time there already. He likes to be there. There's sand, and we run in the sand a lot. It's a good climate near the sea - for me as an asthmatic, that's good."

I really hope Petra doesn't always believe everything she says.

And if she does; it won't stop her from future world domination. Lol

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Mmmhhh. Interesting.

Petra's NOT scheduled for tomorrow, so she may be playing till Thursday?? OK. If she does, that would give her some rest and a several practice sessions.

There a few time slots left on the second venue-Court 1 (Centre Court is the stadium Court) tomorrow. But I would hope, and highly doubt they would put Petra there? Probably not.

Since the quarterfinals start Friday, I guess it is possible for Petra to play her first match Thursday (probably on her request; coming from Fed Cup).

I don't see Vika scheduled either. So it makes sense.

We'll see?

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

A Petra post match article in Germany.

Quote:
“My role model was Martina Navratilova”

Stuttgart. NWimbledon winner Petra Kvitova’s first appearance at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix lasted one hour less two seconds. The world No. 3 from the Czech Republic had little trouble in overcoming Francesca Schiavone (Italy) 6-2, 6-2. After the match against the 2010 French Open winner, Petra Kvitova talked about . . .

. . . her game on clay:
“I grew up on clay in the Czech Republic. But these days, I actually prefer to play on quicker surfaces. I feel at home here in the Porsche Arena. The surface is similar to the one at the French Open and it aids more aggressive players in contrast to many outdoor clay courts.”

. . . her role model when a junior:
“It was obviously Martina Navratilova. She’s a left-hander like me. I liked her aggressive style which is also my way of playing. And I can beat a lot of players with my game.”

. . . the next challenges:
“I’m obviously looking forward to the French Open, for sure. But first of all I want to play well here in Stuttgart and do as well as possible. I was really sorry at having to withdraw from last year’s tournament because of an injury. And it’s nice that everything has started so well for me here.”

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

I will record it and attempt to put it on You Tube.

Never put anything on You Tube before, so don't expect it to be done quickly..... I'm going to have to look up how to do it
