I'm playing for so many years, so this is, we say, the cherry on the cake.
We knew her game was ready--she's ready.
Ted Robinson, referring to Petra Kvitova
We've been waiting for this a long, long time. I've been in four finals before...
She also has an aggressive mentality that does not quite dovetail with her understated personality and which allowed her to shrug off the inevitable unforced errors and keep taking big cuts at Sharapova’s serves.
Did you think she might start to feel the pressure?
You can't think about her, you've just got to try to do things from your own side, and I came up short today.
I don't know how she (Lisicki) felt, but our battery was loaded.
...Today I have to speak for myself, to tell you something I feel deep down in my soul....You scare me.
James LaRosa, in his letter to Petra Kvitova
She was hitting really powerful and hitting, you know, winners from all over the court...
The 21-year-old Czech didn’t just meet the moment; she kicked the moment’s ass.
