Re: Hop Hop Hopman cup

Congrats Petra against AMG.

Nice (ahem) exo win in Australia.

6-1 6-0, with 34W to 20UE....Nice

Very choppy and laggy feed (and I have good Internet/never had a problem before). I hope the rest of them aren't like this from 'Down Under'. It was barely watchable most time.

Onward to the next

Re: Hop Hop Hopman cup

Petra's match:

Open roof with temperatures just below 30 degrees so it was certainly hot.
Most significant thing I observed was the pace of her serve and a somewhat different serve motion to produce serves with more pace, compared to her serves from 2012-most of 2013. She hit a number of aces too. Another thing: her footwork was really on sync today - which really helped her produce superb shots. Clinical performance at 6-1 6-0 in 57 minutes, Annabel's knees were taped but Petra was just on fire today. Perhaps the heat made her play quite efficiently well today. Good stuff.

To Excelsior:

Haven't really had any issues with the live streaming, except for some laggy moments. Overall, the video quality was alright.

Nice summary with interesting tidbits.

And good for you with the stream.

Maybe I'll change the browser next time? I was on Opera, which is usually good (but maybe not from Australia to America)?

I use Google Chrome and I watched it at www.frombar.com and just choose from a number of options/video streams.

If Petra's hitting with Radek on a semi regular basis, this alone should help her improve next year (or at least when he's around).

Petra, notoriously hasn't had a male hitting partner for the majority of her past three seasons. And when she did, it was almost always a boyfriend (Adam during 2011).

What happens when Radek's not around, or they break up?

Regardless of the weight, she was playing very much differently, relative to her previous match.
This match:
Lazy footwork, making her produce wild and inaccurate shots especially in the second set (concentration was gone, too passive with her shots), serve motion a la 2013 (with topspin instead of pace) so I didn't see the change of serve motion apparent in her previous match, lots of df's, explosiveness was lacking which was also evident during her previous match. Definitely a different Petra today. Kudos to Alize for being a good counterpuncher especially in the third set.
