There really isn’t any way that you can dislike Andrea Petkovic. She has a huge game. She has an awesome Twitter account where she answers fans questions and posts goofy pictures of herself. She also studies while being a pro tennis player, yet is the self-proclaimed “first ever tennis-playing Rock ‘n’ Roller.”
Like her yet?
Hopefully, because she’s probably sticking around. She’s been plagued by injuries, but is finally hitting her stride this year at age 22. I remember seeing her play in Brisbane earlier this year, where she eventually lost to Kim in the semis. Huge, huge game, and even bigger shoulders. Pretty sure I’m going to start calling her Shoulders. Actually, I’ll add that to the dictionary right now. Anyway, everything was a little laborious and inconsistent, but the power was impressive. Things are starting to come together.
She will have a shot to win her second WTA title tomorrow as she takes on some Justine chick.
