whoa. Don't mess with Petko.
Yeah, him and Stosur look like brothers.
Can someone please tell Kvitova's trainer to not use this technique. I want Petra to last and she's applying unnecessary strain on her neck/spine- she's putting herself in risk of injury.
Interested to know what would be the proper technique.
Wow Petko is ripped, her core strength must be top notch.
jamesblakefan#1 thank you!!!! :mrgreen:
Just pull the bar in front of your head and you are solid.
Alright, I really think Petkovic is a nice women. And I also understand that everyone has a different taste...
But seriosly, there is hardly anything female about some of these pictures. If you take the first one and solely focus on the face - I'm pretty sure the majority of people woult believe this belongs to a man...
One the second one, you would just need to replace the bra with a male chest and it would look entirely like a rather athletic male body.:-?
Don't post Petkovic, please..:help::help:
This thread about women tennis player.. not about men and horses
I'm not gonna lie. Those petko abs are very unattractive to me. It's so un woman like.
Well, thats what working hard does, is no on porpuse. She is preatty and she would be more without that much excercises.
I'm trying my best here... reposts, but whatever.
Petko is attractive if you like men.
IMO there is nothing "un woman like" in having ripped arms and abs, obviously to each its own but I prefer a woman with a toned body over a woman that is just bones and skin, they seem like lazy...
Old school. Nobody had better killer legs than Steffi Graf. Y do U think Andre married her? Not much in the nose department. But many many tennis commentators were secretly in loved with Steffi's legs. RD
It seems we're always going to have posts here about how so-and-so isn't worthy of being pictured here. That's too bad.
In any case, maybe I can clear up some questions surrounding Petko. My personal take only (of course):
Yeah, I can see some masculinity in the facial features.
Yeah, big shoulders and upper arms, and six-pack abs are not really my thing. But she's gotten herself in amazing shape *for tennis*, and that's admirable. And there was a time, before she got herself into this shape, that she cut quite an impressive feminine figure, and that's what got me going on her. If new, never-before-published pics of her from that era came forward, that would be great. But what we have are new pics of the new Petko, and that's still okay in my book.
You guys that comment on her six pack and toned arms being manly are pathetic.
First of all you are probably scrawny little dweebs. There is a big difference between a very fit and toned babe like Petko and a steroid taking bodybuilder women types.
Women tennis players are world class professional athletes. The more fit they are the more it will benefit their chances of doing well.
Im not following the horse face but thats ok. Her face is chiseled because she has very low body fat.
I guess she intimidates you because she has more toned shoulders than you. LOL.
The naysayers are coming out the woodwork today it seems.
It's okay JBF and the rest, carry on posting Petko pics to your hearts content! The rest of us will appreciate them.
For real but obviously it makes no sense arguing with ignorant people - first she's into action that's why her muscles are obviously so pumped, second these are pictures which obviously amplifies the sharpness of her body which would very less be seen by the normal human eye that's why for example bodybuilders put a special oil and third she's a sportive of high level not a stupid looser eating chips whole day in front a computer screen unable to lift to weights and criticizing someone who's making there living and quite well if I take her prize money just for this year.
All these plus much more = Andrea is quite hot.
Some comments are a sign of male insecurity
Petko rules! but she had tatas before, where they going?
IKR!? Now her "talents" looks saggy and flat. It's ok if she wanted less big breast so she can move faster and everything, but the breast surgery they did on her was terrible.
couldnt agree more
you are one of the smart tw members
You probably think Stosur is attractive as well.
In case you're referring to me, please read my comment again before writing stuff like that.
Her face has few to do with her being athletic, because it's mainly about the bone structure. And there are several things about her face that are usually associated with a male face. That's simply a fact. I don't blame her for that and I also don't say that she is really ugly and I would never use phrases like 'horse face'. However, as a heterosexual male I have the right and it is rather natural for me to be more attracted to attributes associated with females.
As for her body, I respect her a lot for all the work it takes to get in such great shape. And maybe looking like that allows her to be a better player. But at the same time I cannot turn of my male instincts that find curvy women with a female look more attractive. And lots of research and every day experience suggests that the great majority of males share this opinion. That's not an attempt to be mean but it's how nature programmed males for a good reason.
Maybe a steroid taking bodybuilder is less attractive but that doesn’t change anything about Petkovic.
Furthermore, there seem to be many equally successful or even better tennis players, who can maintain a very feminine look while being athletic.
I don't mind people posting more pictures of her. But at the same time I am allowed to comment on them.
Whether I am a 'scrawny little dweeb' or not doesn't play any role in this discussion
Thanks for the Petko pics! She's awesome. As a fellow Eastern European, I think she's quite lovely!
LOL, while you're getting philosophical about your "free speech" and defensive about your own appearance, everyone else is just posting photos, enjoying the gals they like and ignoring the ones they don't.
Get with the program.
Whatever your taste, they can be found here or on the Web for you to post yourself. Feel free to make requests even - perhaps you like Heidi El Tabakh, who has plenty of curves. Maybe it's those "curves" preventing her from staying in the top 100 and she will get some tips from Petko?
Oh, I dunno. 6 or 7 out of the top 10 women (top 3 in the world for sure) have plenty of curves to them. It doesn't seem to be hampering them at all.
Maybe if Andy ate a little more, he wouldn't have such a hard time trying to break into the top-10 and stay there.
no.. petkovic is just too ugly
Trust me, brother, no matter what your opinion is, you're not going to stop anyone from posting Petko pictures here.
Give it a rest and enjoy the show. Ignore the pics you don't like. It's all good.
Quite frankly, 95% of all the WTA'ers are pretty darn athletic and good looking anyway. Maybe some don't quite strike your fancy, but maybe some do. If you don't like what you see here, feel free to post some pictures of the girls you DO like.
But bashing the pictures that are posted just doesn't serve any purpose whatsoever. You're not going to change everyone's mind just by calling someone "ugly". Some of us (including myself) actually like an athletic body like Petko has. It's friggin' way hot. Deal with it.
Okay, quit being picky. Don't talk ish about any of the girls in these pics. They are athletes and work hard to get the bodies they have. And for all you guys posting pics lookin up these gals' skirts and whatnot: go watch some porn. it would be less creepy.
What would the mullet do?!
Petkovic must have some pretty high testosterone levels for a woman...
Didn't realize so much whining could be done over someone posting pictures of a tennis pro...:?
Miss Marion Bartoli.
First of all I must admit not being impartial. I'm a big fan of Petko.
The girl is in great shape, a hundred times more than many other WTA-Players. She is a professional athlete and did, what every professional athlete should do: get in shape.
I can't agree with those saying she's not feminine. Again, I'm not impartial. I like girls that work out. Not the bodybuilding way, just being in shape. Don't wanna see fat stomaches, wobbly arms and thighs.
What makes, at the bottom line, Petko extremely attractive isn't her looks (although I like it), it is her personality. She seems to be happy with herself, she's funny, seems to enjoy her life. Look at her dancing on the courts, watch her interviews, read her tweets. She seems to be a good person.

^^^i couldn't agree more. personally, i am in love w/andrea's personality and she's my favorite player to watch on the wta.
btw, imo, she belongs here for every other pic. well the good ones of her .
Well said, i fully agree!
That picture perfectly encapsulates the last few years and current status of her tennis career. You can see defeat and 'end stage' in her eyes. She's been though the slaughter chute and is visuually showing it. Pore Ana, she knows her time is done.
