Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

I liked that article's concluding paragraph about Kotyza. I have never agreed with those who call for him to be replaced. Supplemented, maybe, but it is clear that he is very dear to Petra and that having a second father, as it were, keeps her grounded and happy with her tennis career.

Nadal is very grounded to. But that didn't stop him and Uncle Tony being prepared for, and wanting to win every major in sight.

I had read the article previously. And yes it's nice.

Thanks Tennisaddict84.

What's up Mac and Steni!

Who are the silly buggers who want Kotyza to get fired?

That may not necessarily be a career suicide but at the very least it's tantamount to turning Petra into an ordinary coach-swapping more-of-the-time-down-than-up WTA-mug like Na Li.

If somebody really needs to be replaced, then it's the other guy - the physio/fitness coach that needs to go (for failing to create sixpack abs

Hey!

That was funny! But I think she wont get rid of the fitness coach, she seems to like him very much! I honestly cant imagine Petra firing someone, she is too nice!

That would be me.
So going to field trips to art galleries counts as coaching?

If she heard that she just might do some firing just to prove a point

No ,honestly though, I don't see the need for that here. I don't like what one might call the "Florida method" of doing tennis business, which is that once the player has learned the basics of hitting balls and vocal cords, nothing else is important (Floridian coaching can function irrespective of who is doing the coaching and in fact it can be completely discarded and replaced by daddy or mammy).

I'd rather that Petra not get into that sort of thing and stick to her European school.

Hey Mac, there was nothing in the story which said she actually enjoyed THOSE trips.

Just kidding! Good for her huggybear. Aw, what a great 'coach'!

Now, if he really wanted to impress people he would find some magical way for Petra to retain focus during matches, reduce her UEs, and come up with better mid-match adjustments and strategies. You know, figuring out a Plan B sometimes. Any dope could take her out for sightseeing and culture.

It's not healthy for her to be only preoccupied with tennis 24/7.

So in order to maximize longevity and minimize (mental) burnout, Kotyza knows that Petra needs to do stuff that has nothing to do with tennis (like Venus who has a "not couture" fashion label, or Serena who became a "toenail painting technician" a few years ago).

I respect SW to the sky, but why would anybody want anything to do with touching another human being's crunchy toenails?

Yuck!

But seriously, I wonder if our dear Petra is already battling burnout issues? If so, kudos to Kotyza for stepping in and trying to help in a positive way.

And, wouldn't you love to hear Petra's comments looking at some of those masterpieces and museum artifacts? Priceless I'm sure.

From what I've heard from others who have spent time around serious or professional athletes, most of them aren't the deepest thinkers or most well-rounded individuals you'll ever meet. All of their free time seems to be taken up by training, gamedays and travel.

Once again, yuck!

So good for Kotyza for saving our Petra!
