Andrea Petkovic delivered one of the biggest upsets so far, taking out #1 Caroline Wozniacki 7-5, 3-6, 6-3 to reach the quarter-finals of the Sony Ericsson Open. It was an exciting match to watch, with Petko "mixing it up" and being aggressive with her shots. But of course, the MAIN reason I was watching is that I wanted to witness the Petko Dance, (which will be unfortunately going out of style) in the flesh, and let me tell you, it was 10 seconds of pure fabulousness.
It's interesting how a player's personality can affect the entire media room, and the moment Petko stepped in after a tense Caro presser, I felt my whole body relax. She's smart, funny, personable, and just has that "IT" factor that so many players lack. Her post-match press conference is still being talked about in the media room as I type this at 10:00 in the morning. It was classic. Pictures and highlights of the interview (with my question about her next Petkorazzi video) after the jump:
