Petra was just crying, cause she sucked, while knowing Aga was eminently beatable.

You notice, you didn't hear, the normally naively honest Kvitova team big up Aga more than they complained and were more upset with Kvitova's play? They knew she was beatable, and Petra's wretched performance (Geesh, can't wait till QPF makes his appearance )!

Hopefully (whether she gets it together here or not), she'll learn from this, and it will maker her more stronger and more hungry. But how long?

Unfortunately, it seems Petra's not putting the work on (and maybe off) the court, then she's crying after she loses, when she realizes what opportunities slipped out of her hand.

Get stronger Petra. That will make you get better.
I think she was crying out of anger and frustration because she played shite

I personally think she's angry at herself and it's tears of anger - she's not feeling sorry for herself. It might help, but tbh the girl can't take pressure. Hopefully she's not another Ivanovic

I'm not holding out any promises for the Fed Cup. If she's like this here at defending a title, what's she gonna be like at Fed Cup in Prague?

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

I posted this in GM as well but if Petra fails during Fed Cup... I believe I used the term, "burn the last remaining tiny shreds of confidence she still possesses".

If what you guys are saying is true, then what will be the pressure she's feeling in Prague (I think it's there)?

Let's be honest, you can't count on Lucie to play a good match, unless (her name escapes me) one of the others plays singles. You know how much pressure Petra normally has on her shoulders at Fed Cup, with the need to normally win two singles ties?

The only saving Grace, is she's playing Ivanovic and Jankovic. But sadly, that may not be enough of a guarantee.

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

Here's an article from TennisPanorama.com with some quotes from the presser.

Quote:
“Yesterday when I played I thought that it’s nerves, but normally nerves are gone after first set,” Kvitova told media. “It was actually during all the match, so I thought that it’s something wrong. That’s why I have to pulled out."

“I mean, I never withdraw from a tournament. This first time for me, so I don’t really experience this kind of press conferences."

“Yeah, I mean, I don’t like to give up, so I’m feeling really disappointing. I hope that Sam (Stosur) will win some matches for me.”
(if i did not already feel terrible about this, well, those would have done the trick)

Oh Petra

There's something definitely not right. She's had virus after virus since February plus she's also had this stomach complaint since IW. I don't like that she keeps getting the "shits" (to put it bluntly). I hope she goes and sees a specialist.

Mind you, if she gets in touch with Pov, he might be able to diagnose it over the internet. He won't even need to examine her or speak to her, he will be able to tell what's wrong with her just by her presser

Re: Petra Kvitova News and Articles

She sounds like such a mess. Thank God it's offseason (or it SHOULD BE...but I feel like Petra will never skip Fed Cup ever even if she had been like shot or something, she'd still show up at the O2 Arena being like "I CAN PLAY, IT'S FINE"). Rest, recover, put this shit year behind her.

Hmmmm . . . maybe I should start whining about wanting you to be banned. No wait . . .My mistake. I forgot that it's okay for you to think she cried because she played like crap but it's ban-worthy for me to think she WD because she had no form and felt down and unmotivated.

Erm no there's a difference. The minute I found out she was sick, I didn't post on GM stating that I thought she was pulling a fast one or that she was lying.

Sub-forums are or fans .. not haters. Go away!!!

Okay,I can't sugarcoat this one,cuz it sounds like a bunch of crap to me.I've had moments in life when I was nervous...and I've had moments when I was sick,INCLUDING acute bronchitis which practically left me bedridden when I was about 6.....but I've NEVER been unable to distinguish between whether I was sick or nervous.MAYBE,at the outset of an illness,the symptoms would be so mild that Petra or someone else couldn't tell the difference,yet the flaw in that defense is that the milder symptoms wouldn't affect you that profoundly or stop you from competing.I'm trying my best to give Petra the benefit of the doubt here in considering that she may have worsened,symptoms-wise,AFTER the match.On the video,she DEFINITELY didn't resemble someone with serious bronchitis...she just looked like a player who was psychologically out of it and playing like garbage.

I don't know if it's her team,if it's Petra on her own(aye HOPE not),or if they're collaborating...but an athlete rightfully loses respect when he/she concocts asinine excuses for losing....Even Serena has been upbraided for this;when Henin kicked her ass in 3 straight Slam QFs in 2007,Ree ranted and blamed the 3rd loss on 'lucky shots'...though she seems to have put THAT sort of lunacy behind her in her advancing years.Maybe the worst was when AI lost to Zheng in 2008 and claimed that she lost b/c she didn't realize that she was getting tired in the 2nd set.Unless someone's on mind-altering drugs,I don't know how it's humanly possible to NOT know that you're getting tired...that's as stupid as NOT knowing whether or not you have a headache.
Friend #1: You're rubbing your forehead;do you have a headache?
Friend #2: I'm not sure--let me consult a specialist

Anyway,it's GOOD that Petra is disappointed with losing but,as Navrat could tell her,part of being a champion means owning up to subpar performances and using them as motivation to do better.I really,REALLY hope that Petra doesn't copy the seemingly-growing trend of mentally-fragile WTA divas who lean on every crutch they can find following a loss

I hope she's learning that when the chips are down, you must be very fit, otherwise you will not be able to execute.

Unfortunately Mac, at the moment, I think she's "executing" too much, hence why she's going to see a specialist
