Is Nadia Petrova Finished?

At least as far as singles is concerned?

I don't see her playing again this year and she will probably be out of the top 100 by the years end.

And she's 31.

You never know with Nadia. She's so talented. Way too talented to be ranked so low.

Re: Is Nadia Petrova Finished?

hard to say with her.I thought she was finished a couple of years ago and should have stick to doubles and then (out of nowhere)she almost ended 2012 in the top10.
firing Sanchez was indeed a really stupid move though

Re: Is Nadia Petrova Finished?

I think she had an injury for a while..

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Nadia...75409989183767


"I felt I owed you a heartfelt explanation after my heart wrenching loss yesterday. As you all well know, I've been struggling with a leg injury since Europe. Although I took off from playing in 3 tournaments, the doctors warned me that if I continued to play, I could make things worse. As a competitor, it's really hard to hear of accept this but it's clear, things are a bit more serious so I must put down my racket to do the appropriate treatments to avoid surgery. Sadly this is not the news I wanted to give but I had wanted to be honest so none of you thought I was just giving away matches. I promise to keep you all updated and hope this extended time of rest and treatment will have me strong and ready when I'm given the green lights. Thank you for your support."

Re: Is Nadia Petrova Finished?

I use to really enjoy the Russians when they played at the time with Venus, Serena, Hingis, Lindsey, Pierce, Jen, Kimmye, Justine, Amelie, Chanda, Seles, Ana K, and others. They played better before the WTA went on a strategic campaign to make them irrelevant for Maria. They were good players but when they got their golden girl, they started putting the Russian players on lower courts such as court 12 - 18. They just disappeared in the night never to be seen again. And after Elena and Dinara retired, they really became irrelevant and it never made any sense.

Nadia always had so much potential but she could never control her emotions and put all of her talents together to get the big win. Nadia is young and I hope she recovers from her injuries and continues to play tennis. At this point, I can't say that she will never win a grand slam, although the probability doesn't look too good. But hell, who would have thunk Francesca would have won the FO or Marion would have won the most coveted slam of all (Wimbeldon)

I just think if she can play and is healthy, and wants to play, then she should play.

I don't think I would have put that way, but you're right.

Talent isn't the issue with Nadia IMO, it's her motivation. If she worked her ass off she sure could get back to the top 15-20, but I just can't see it happening at that stage of her career.

And she always comes across as solid as a rock in interviews, off the court. But a totally different person on the court.

Re: Is Nadia Petrova Finished?

It's so bizarre. She kind of out of nowhere got back to right on the brink of the top ten last year, only to fire the coach who helped get her there and start absolutely SUCKING. She doesn't think .
