The young lady, Petra Martic, that beat Kvitova in Tokyo, lost in the first round to Puchova 6-2 6-2 in Beijing. SMH

Oh My Petra (Kvitova).

I know, I was thinking the same... Our Petra

I'm not sure if anything is easy for Petra at this point, till she proves otherwise.

And remember, Beijing is not a Grand Slam or important Grand slam warm up for Dani to choke on.

Who knows? Maybe Dani will be relaxed and play her game, if Petra's still going walkabout.

I hope Petra wins. And we know Dani plays into Petra's game. But you never know?

I hope Petra's motivated.

Good Luck Petra.

What is all that? I didn’t feel very comfortable playing indoor and thats why I was serving like crap?

You lost to someone who couldnt win two matches in a row, how do you explain that

Maybe it's a problem in the translation (from Chinese, Petra or Paulmara, whatever), but it does sound like dribble from Petra.

So Kvitova lost that match vs Martic with the roofed closed? If so, I didn't know that.

Well, if this is true, there goes your indoor hardcourt streak guys (though it was a retractable, as opposed to a fixed roof, so Petra's still got that record to hold on to).

But then again, how could the roof had been closed when the serving was so poor?

It seems to me, like Petra was cryptically speaking about her practice in Beijing, as well.

Oh, she wasn't "comfortable", so she didn't fight?

The other thing is, Petra's the #5 ranked player in the world. There's a reason why Martic was ranked 72. As poor as we think Petra can play in many of these opening rds off of layoffs, unless the opposition plays lights out (which is rare), they usually lose. Many times these lower ranked players make mistakes, choke and take on court siesta's. That's why top ranked players usually win those matches when they play poorly.

Petra on the other hand (as Melange said), lost to a player that hadn't won two matches in a row since the French Open.

Embarrassing.
