Stuttgart R2: Angelique Kerber (5) d. Andrea Petkovic (wc) 6-2 6-4

Great crowd and atmosphere.
Angie was just a lot more solid, but she was refreshingly active and tried to create opportunities for herself.
Petko Pretty Good showing! Did great on the MPs.

Rest in Peace Bally!

She still sounds very nasally from the virus

Petko - she played well

Nice hug. I kind of wanted Petko to take it to a 3rd set. She was playing so well in that last game to save MPs and if she'd converted that BP to make it 5-5 she might have sewed some doubt into Kerber.

Decent match overall.

Not bad. Liked what i saw from Angie. She has always loved Stuttgart and i expect her to do well again this year.

When was the last time Kerber lost to a German player? Before the Iraq war?

One can say she lost to Zverev at Hopman Cup.

She doesn't lose to German players. I think the last time it happened, Kerber was 2-years old.
As I said in the LIVE Chat at the start of the match, Kerber fans should rejoyce every time she draws another German player. They are all scared of her. They play their worst games against her. It's strange.

Too bad for Petko, would have been nice to see her in the QF, instead of..... the other one. Petko is just so friendly and likable. Can't help but root for her.

Nice embrace at the net - their first match was all the way back in 2005 at an ITF. It’s nice to see the obvious respect they have for each other.
