Oh yeah Petra beat her this year too. Oops sorry, I mean Serena rolled over and let Petra beat her. BTW that is so clearly the case because look at their head 2 head, Petra had never beaten her before...

Petra
I wanted to see you against Venus on this fast court, it would have been a great match

She has one, but has 12 years left in her, with 9/10 years of heavy slam winning potential. She could end up with 22 grand slams easily.

And to think that Génie is 0-4 against this Kvitova player. Sometimes tennis is just not logical at all.

Genie - Victoria - Kristina.

Love Petra, but I'm really happy for Vinci!

You can always count on K-vitty to flop.

Roby Excellent follow-up to her great US Open.

And that H2H isn't the case. Pretty logical to everyone who watched their matches.

They are airing the replay of the match on SuperTennis and Cinà said to Vinci "Al corpo, al corpo che ti tira fuori di un metro" translation: To the body, to the body (about the serve), [don't you see] that she hits 1 mt long"
Sephir and thejuju like this.

You can always count on Petra to give you at least two free/cheap points on serve even if you serve like Errani. I wonder what goes through her mind when she prepares herself to return those 60-70 mph serves. Someone should attach electrodes to her head and carry out a study.

A typical bad match-up for Petra - solid retriever just in zone, experienced enough, slicing Petra to death.

That could be expected.

An ideal path for Petra to a big title was Wimby 2014 while having to face Hlavackova, Barthel, Venus, Shuai Peng, with the only exception of Strycova, Safarova and Bouchard.

All of them ball bashers (excl. Barbie) with Petra being the best of them in this category.

Let her play an active technically skilled retriever, Petra is done (its always so with her).

So nothing new, lets hope, Petra does not get Vinci, Carla or Timea or someone like that in Beijing in her draw.
