05.11.13 OFF-SEASON

holidays2Hi guys,

How is everyone doing?

I have been taking some time to myself these past days, recovering from a long season and spending time with my family – my favourite thing in the world!

I went home to Prague for a week after Champs and then I took my parents and best friend to Monaco and we enjoyed four days there. We went to the beach, saw the museums and the sites and ate some good seafood.

For the past two days, I have been running around organising a lot of things and packing because I will be away a long time. Unfortunately I am not coming back home to the Czech Republic until after Australia so I had to say goodbye to my parents today, which was the hard part.

On Wednesday I am going to London for a few days before I fly to the British Virgin Islands for the Necker Cup – I am really excited to go there, spend some time in a beautiful place and play tennis for a good cause.

My pre-season this year is going to be in Florida for the first time. I am looking forward to doing something different and will try to prepare in the best way possible. My fitness trainer Marek is coming, and David too, so there will be a lot of new things for me. The end of the season showed me that I am in the good way so I just want to keep working hard and feeling positive.

It was strange for me last week not to have the Fed Cup final on my schedule after the past two years. I missed it, but it was also nice to have an extra week to relax. I know Italy won but I heard that the top Russian players didn’t play so that was a shame for the event.

I promise to write again and let you know how the pre-season training is going.

See you soon,



  • Jeremy Holloway,

    Hi Petra, some lovely pictures of you relaxing, hope you enjoy(ed) London. London’s nice but not as nice as Devon, we have Dartmoor and Exmoor and some beautiful coastlines. If you come over to the UK again please consider this beautiful part of the country. And we serve delicious Devon Cream Teas! Looking forward to your next blog……..

  • Anil pelluri,

    you need to be consistent,petra.I hope to see you play consistently from next season onwards.

  • Noman Bin Safdar,

    Hi, first of all, lost of love. Then, it is good enough to know that as you took rest this off-season time, you would recover from a probable injury or perhaps unfit state which you entered in after playing back to back tournaments. I further think this was the major reason that you fell an easy prey to Williams in WTA Champs. However, it is my heartiest desire to see you winning at least one grandslam next season. I pray for you and hope you would try your best to come up to your world no. 1 fan’s wish by performing wild and outstanding in the Australian Open and the subsequents….. Stay blessed!

    • Noman Bin Safdar,

      It is ‘lots of love’ in the first sentence, not ‘lost’ as misprinted above.
