Petra is playing well this week. She has breezed through her first three matches, often leaving her opponents shaking their heads at the crazy winners. She hit one on the run from fifteen feet behind the baseline and roughly eight feet wide of the sideline in her second match. Methinks that she actually goes for the lines, and not for near the lines. It makes for great audience excitement. Of course, she made the usual unforced errors on easy balls.
