Goerges: Ana 1.0?

Seeing Goerges play Sharapova, I kind of get flashbacks to our dear Ana. So much game with the forehand and a pretty good, fast serve and she's got a lot of self-drive. She's also starting to come into her own. She's just gotta maybe work out a kink in her forehand and serve (there's a lot of movement in them) and she coud easily be top 20 in today's game. She's got more game IMO than Kvitova or Pironkova. Mentally, she seems to be ready and willing to fight as well.

Who knows...maybe a future Roland Garros champ in the making (though I still contend that the USO is a better slam for her).

And no, it's not a typo. I purposefully said Ana 1.0. Current Ana (2.0) is something...magical, lol.

Re: Goerges: Ana 1.0?

Goerges moves much better I think and the backhand is more solid. She's really good. Great potential. First time I've seen her play.

Their forehand is both their weapon but they are different Goerges is more like a whip. Ana's is more like clockwork like Grafs.

Re: Goerges: Ana 1.0?

Down to the backhand being bashed into submission by Masha

As for the some Masha fan raised about the fistpump, I wonder if you saw what Maria was doing after every point she won.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Re: Goerges: Ana 1.0?

Yep. And she also says "come on" obnoxiously like Ana did with the fist pumps.

Re: Goerges: Ana 1.0?

Yes and the whole world didnt start to notice Ana's beauty until she started winning and becoming top 10 player.

I dont know if Julia can reach Ana's success on court. But if she does, she may have similar rise to fame off court too, with her very nice looks.

did Maria jump up and down, clenching her fist and riase it in the air?

on the side note, Julia has alot of potential. big serve and big forehand. I think she'll get top 10

Julia was so close today and really fought hard. Hopefully she'll continue making her way up the rankings this year!

Congrats to Masha!

Whatever works for her, whether it's grunting, fistpumping or a huge 'Come on'

it;s somewhat over the top, but the match was really intense after all, so I don't blame her for getting excited
