How Long Before Petra Starts Her Descent in Obscurity?

She is a top 10, but can't seem to play like one.

She cannot withstand adversity of any kind.
The elements, opponents in top 10, etc...

The conditions need to be perfect for her to have a decent performance: opponent out of top 10, perfect condition on the court.

Maria was not playing at her best today, yet Petra could not make a dent in Maria's game

Dumb thread. Girl's got game. Just not made for clay, though.

Made the SF of RG, which is by far her worst slam. She'll pick it up.

Re: How Long Before Petra Starts Her Descent in Obscurity?

She might be like Sveta and have a lot of ups & downs, but she's still holding a major. So its too early to talk about obscurity

Losing to new world number 1 and multiple GS champion in her second GS SF of year and she is heading to obscurity?

Ah well nothing new for TF.

Re: How Long Before Petra Starts Her Descent in Obscurity?

IMO
Sharapova was at her clay-court best today. A great match from her. I think Kvitova has the most natural talent of any active player other than S.Williams. What it will take for her to consistently play up to her potential I don't know but as long as she stays healthy she'll be a force to be reckoned with for many years.

Re: How Long Before Petra Starts Her Descent in Obscurity?

I think she'll do well at Wimbledon again, and then the YEC. Anything inbetween is going to be... interesting. I know it'll be difficult, but she'll need a plan to overcome the whole America thing, whether it's medication or just pushing through it because the girl can play amazing tennis. Maybe develop her plan B a little bit more too, because it is apparent that it's becoming bash and pray in her case, but she's very good in other aspects of the game which she doesn't exploit enough. It'll be a while before she disappears into obscurity.

no, she doesn't. Sharapova is much more naturally talented player, who would hold double digit slams now if not for career threatening surgery

It may not take very long ! What a disappointing match and follow on to her Wimbledon win.
