Re: If you were David Kotyza, where would you be looking for Petra to improve next ye

I think she's a beautiful young lady. I see nothing wrong with a 4 year age gap, especially if Adam is mature for his age. I hope she doesn't have any abortions, because they bring a lot of mental anguish with them. I wish her a long and happy career full of victories, followed by a beautiful post-career life with as many kids as she wants. And I hope they're all left-handed and that she teaches them tennis. (Seriously, as the daughter of a teacher and a an apparently even-keeled person, she'd probably be an excellent tennis teacher herself.)

I heard, and thought the same thing you did QPF.

Re: If you were David Kotyza, where would you be looking for Petra to improve next ye

You guys, she's obviously going to ditch him and hookup with Tomas Berdych at the Hopman Cup next year, I mean with Lucie and Adam not being invited and all ...

Aside, she needs to develop her mental game. She seems to rush some of the points too much, over-rotating.

David Kotyza is so cute, I wanna fly to Perth just to see him and get a picture .. well that and see Petra beat the crap outta Woz again.

I wouldn't worry too much about her stopping to have kids. In CZ tens of thousands of young ladies are putting off having kids until they are in their thirties. I don't think she'll be any different. At least 10 Grand Slams, then rugrats. I can see that pretty easily. no worries.

Tomas Berdych prefers to romp around with skinny airheaded bimbos. Presently he's hooked up with some model. I don't think Petra would give him the time of day as far as romance is concerned. She's happy with her zajiček.

Re: If you were David Kotyza, where would you be looking for Petra to improve next ye

I've just watched all of Petra's matches with the new racquet. i'm convinced that it has wrecked her timing somewhat. Watch almost any of her matches, even losing ones from last year, and you'll see the difference. She's fighting the new one. Sabatini wrecked her career just when she was about to ascend to the top (she had beaten Graf seven times in a row) by changing racquets. She was never the same again, her confidence gone. The racquet manufacturers are generally bad news, always pushing hard by touting 'more control, more power' for everything that they hawk. Kotyza had better wake up to this.

Bad news. I also noticed much worse timing but I thought it's just a result of not enough hours spent in the training at the end of year. But you might be totally right about the change of racquet.

Maybe part of this break has been to give her more time to get accustomed to the new racquet?

I thought we had established that it was a paint job, and not a new racquet really.

Much as I adore Gabby, this says more about the problems Steffi was having around that time than it does about Sabatini or her racquets.

This.

Let's not get carried away with Sabitini's victories over Graf during that period. Steffi was losing to all type of mugs and top 10-20 players she usually had for lunch at the time.

On another note, I also have a wait and see attitude on the alledged "new racket".

The question would be, "is Petra and her team dumb enough to change rackets after such a successful year, and not do a paint over? And if so, did they/are they, giving her enough time to get acclimated to it, or go back the older one?

The bottom line is, if she has a new racket, what are the benefits to Petra? And if they're are none, then the racket manufacturer can't stop her from doing a paint over of the old one.

Apparently you (yes I'm sure there are others as well) think it's a "paint job" and not a new racquet. Which - no matter how you want to sugarcoat it - is tantamount to saying that Kvitova is willing to lie publicly for financial gain. It's also tantamount to saying that Wilson execs are incredibly stupid.
