Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

15 years from now:

Petra: It should be a lovely picnic today;I hope your mom enjoys all the food we prepared
Adam(4-time Wimby champ and Czech hero) :Indeed,my love,she is grateful for everything you've done for her since her onset of rheumatism...and our sweet Pavel is four years old now and can appreciate such a family event better
Pavel(from the other room) :WAAAAAAAAA!
Petra'n'Adam:(quickly going into the den)
Adam: What's wrong,my son
Pavel(almost incoherent between sobs) :Uncle Paul showed me....Uncle Paul showed me....
Petra: Paul!Did you scare him with another of your enormous,zip-code-sized photos again?I'm gonna break one of your ribs if you did that again!

I admit that once I posted a slightly bigger photo from Petra´s training camp in Slovakia.

Yeah,I think that I can recall that one...it's much lovelier to behold when it's scaled correctly.

...But your use of the word 'once' is a bit dishonest in re your gigantic photos;it's sort of like when an alcoholic claims that he only gets drunk 'once in a while'.Petra is founding a pediatric clinic for Czech kids with nightmarish sleep disorders that were caused by your Dinosaur-sized Pics

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Great in-depth article starting with a reference to Petra's 2011 Wimbledon victory and then comparing the Czech tennis system with the Swedish, Australian and American systems.

One of the best foreign articles I've read on the topic.

And,in your opinion,how would those systems rank,top-to-bottom?

My knowledge is too limited to make an expert comparison, but it's interesting that e.g. Sweden has produced three great male players - Borg, Edberg and Wilander (24 singles slams in total) - but not any champion on the WTA side.

And the decline in Australia's tennis is also remarkable. Stosur's last year US Open title was the first slam for an Aussie woman since 1973!

It will be also interesting whether tennis picks up in huge countries like China and India and whether they'll be able produce top players.

Later,during a long rally,Prosto couldn't stand the heat inside the bag anymore,so he ventured out and began sniffing around the chair umpire's tower.The ump was a bit too presumptuous about his animal-handling skills,so he didn't stop and ask Petra for help in fixing this problem as he SHOULD have done.When he tried to pick him up and carry him away,Prosto bit him where.....well,let's just say the ump is lucky that he and his wife already have three children,cuz his 'equipment' no longer functions normally
Prosto is 'blue eyed' just like our Petra

Still, the 1980-2010 is a very weak period for Aussie female tennis.

Competition! Competition! Competition!

Yep! for the 1st Pics posted to the Picture thread of the “Mysterious talisman small bear’’ that resides in Petra’s Bag – I believe we have missed this intriguing golden nugget since Petra’s meteoric rise to the higher echelons of the WTA tour!

So Kudos & Positive reps to the 1st Successful Entry! Submitted to this sub-forum!

Rules: The pic has to be a genuine reflection of Petra’s Talisman bear (it’s got to be Petra’s tennis bag for starters) – fake entries like a lemur disguised as a bear hiding in a tennis bag or hypothetically an attempt from the likes of say ‘TA84’ to send in a pic of a random tennis bag with a small bear in it snapped at any downtown mall will not cut-it!

Good Luck!

Petra's pet,even when calm,has the look of a creature that is currently being shocked with electrodes attached to its anus...glad to see that we both appreciate the eye-color connection between Prosto and Petra

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

^ What's the obsession with Michael Phelps? Why'd she want to meet him above all others?

I mean the other day it was Lisicki and/or others I forgot, who was all going gaga about that guy.

It's rather mystifying. I mean OK he's won golds in ancient past but as of right now his ass getting whooped left and right (he's not even likely to win one individual gold medal if I'm not mistaken). And on top of that, personality-wise he's not exactly a darling, is he (the only time he is in the headlines outside of the Olympics is when he is causing trouble by getting high or getting drunk).

And last but not least, I'm a hetero guy but I think he's ugly as hell, right?
