Re: Texas R1: Julia "i can't believe i got bagelled" Goerges d. Alize Cornet 0-6,6-4,
I think Julia might have gave up on the first set. NOT TO MAKE EXCUSES. However, I think she realized at some point in the set that it was going to go three sets, or that she wasn't going to win that set without exhausting herself. And rather than extend all her energy trying to fight back in the first set, she gave it to Alize in the last two sets. Crazy, I know... However, it's a good tactic if you're just trying to get some match-play/self-confidence.
