I suppose, but it's still a 12-4 record, which is not unlike her Birmingham record (11-3) or Wimbledon record (33-11) or Bad Homburg record (3-1).I feel it's definitely kinda underwhelming. Only 1 quarterfinal last I checked and it's grass. She should definitely get the better of these players imo.
These are my feelings towards Kostyuk and felt similar towards Anismova, but she's been getting some semi-decent results this year.Is it bad if I say that it's always quite pleasing when Dart 🎯 loses.
I can never ever warm to her for some reason.
I actually think she thinks she's better than she actually is.
Perhaps she's scared of the Seagulls? They got Jack Draper today!💩Is that shoddy? Not a sparkling record, but her losses are to Bartoli (understandable), Makarova (understandable), Konta (understandable), and Wickmayer (less so) - that's about right, IMO. Yes, she's withdrawn mid-tournament a few times and she's pre-emptively skipped it a few times, but that's more a matter of Wimbledon prep than anything else, I'm sure.
The only thing I can think of is perhaps the occasionally windy conditions there don't suit her. I know she has asthma, which windblown pollen may exacerbate, and many players don't love the wind more generally. And I think she wears contact lenses? But that's all speculation.
She had a couple of titles in Birmingham in that time so was maybe less focussed? As many have pointed out, the two times she’s made the QF in Eastbourne were 2011 and 2014… and what happened next??? 😀Is there a reason Petra has such a shoddy record in Eastbourne? Just 1 final 11 years back and a bunch of withdrawals in between or before the start (which might be precautionary I guess). It's a shame coz the surface and conditions are ideal for her game...
