because the format of Fed Cup is changing, this tie might be a waste of time

(time for Karo Pliskie to step in ... Oops! she doesn´t care at all)
So these are her words ? Strange. Doesn't sound like her ...

Very sad that Petra (despite 2 home ties !) won't play Fed Cup in 2019 :eek:

Nothing about the (stupid) format change is official yet I think.

Here it is official :sad:

No Kvitova, Pliskova and Siniakova :help:

Petra did not play Fed Cup this year at all :unsure:
Maybe she just takes a year break and comes back next year ?

Safarova ! :eek: But no way she will play a (live) rubber, or ?

i think Petra's priority is finally getting a 3rd slam - she was painfully close at AO and she knows she's not getting any younger

i can see her putting everything she has into the clay and grass season

And #1. The way she fought in Miami was impressive. The only letdown is she has become so bad as far as being clutch is concerned. U can always count on her to blink first in a tight match. Her TB record recently bears testimony to that fact.

Yeah, I haven't seen this level of intensity from here before - at least not this consistently. It's weird though, like you mentioned, that in the latter parts of a match or the latter stages of a tournament where she's usually so clutch - she ends up on the losing end.

For her to be in 3 finals already this year is pretty extraordinary, but then to lose 2 of them is pretty un-Petra like. She needs to adopt a safe serve when she's feeling tight. For me, more than anything else, her serve has been her biggest let down when she she somehow looks like she's gonna run away w/ the match, but then falters.

Petra Kvitova's Top 5 Shots | Fed Cup



:love:

And there were plenty more great Fed Cup points from Petra, for example vs Kerber.
