Hey there,

So yes, I know how to spell offense, but it’s a terribly horrible pun that I will explain! 🙂

Today Facebook contest winner William Thach met Petra Kvitova. William is a biochemical engineer that is a tennis fanatic. I was truly impressed with his knowledge of tennis, social media and most importantly, food!! 🙂 So we documented the whole day (stay tuned for the video that will be out Monday August 27th) but let’s talk about what you won’t see on camera!

So after a great intimate lunch with Petra, William was nice enough to try and assist me with returning the table we used for the “romantic setting” … and who stops by to say hello from a long hiatus? None other than fellow Guinness World Record Holder Andrea Petkovic!!! 🙂 It’s great to have Andrea back on tour, we’ve missed her so much and I’m so happy to have her smiling face back at the courts!! Anyway sidetracked… so William is helping me with the table and trips and takes down a fence!!! In front of Andrea!! Andrea says, “I don’t know these people!” HAHAHA Sorry, William…. no ofFENCE!! 😉

So after that smoothness, we needed to grab some food and in my randomness, we went to try out some local food carts!!! As you foodies know, this is a huge trend in LA and is kind of growing all over…. especially, New Haven!!! LOL They had a whole road of carts and William’s Mom and I went for the Vietnamese, Robin went for Falafel and William went for Chinese…… I loved that William and his Mom were up for anything and joined us on a random food experience! We then went on an excursion for gelato and landed in New Haven’s Little Italy… which had NO GELATO?! REALLY?! Is that allowed?!

Anyway, all in all it was a good day, William was awesome and his best quality? Making fun of Robin! Asians stick together!!! haha

Tomorrow we have work to do: cover our Next Gen’rs and Exclusive athletes in Open qualies action!

Until later,

Tracy

Petra Kvitova swings Wilson BLX into the WTA Tour Top 10

Swinging her Wilson Tour BLX tennis racquet, Petra Kvitova captured the Madrid Open singles title for her third title of the year, catapulting her into the Top 10 on the WTA Tour rankings for the first time in her career.

“Top 10 is a great milestone for any player, but Petra is young, so this is only the beginning,” said Wilson Tour Director, Renaud Vallon. “Her game is so well rounded that she can do well on any surface and we look forward to seeing her continue to reach new heights.”

It has been a steady rise to the top of the WTA Tour for the 21 year old Petra Kvitova. In 2008, she reached the Top 50 for the first time in her career and went on to win her first WTA Tour title in Hobart in 2009. In 2010, she reached the Top 40 for the first time in her career after reaching her first Grand Slam semifinal at Wimbledon. This year, she has been a consistent performer on tour, taking titles in Brisbane, Paris and this week in Madrid.

It clear there is no stopping this rising star…Go Petra!!!
