Andrea Petkovic is back with a vengeance after nagging injuries which sidelined her twice for over a year. She advanced to the Citi Open Semifinals in Washington, her third WTA semifinals berth in the last two months, by outlasting Paula Ormaechea 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 today.
But her twitter account has always been healthy. She’s approaching 100,000 followers. She’s also a huge soccer fan who knows enough about Bundesliga team Eintracht without any prompting that it’s clear she goes out of her way to keep up with Eintracht Frankfurt news from wherever she’s playing tennis on the planet at any given time during the football season.
At the 2013 Family Circle Cup in Charleston, Petkovic was awarded a lifetime membership to EFC Eintracht USA, the official American branch of the club’s fan base.
