Re: Julia's 2017 - February & March - Hard Court Spring

Görges def. Kontaveit 67(3) 63 64


Winning again after losing the 1st set, served it out to 0 after saving 2 BPs before at *43, good stuff, not clue about the quality as I was not able to watch it.
Stats look pretty good with 10 aces and 80% won over 1st serve!

Vekic next, dangerous but often no consistency at all, I hope that Julia can win that also, she should be more consistent on her serve at least, which could give her the advantage!
But happy to see that Julia is obviousl already healthy again!!

So the knee wasn't too bad thankfully. Good win, Kontaveit can be dangerous.

Re: Julia's 2017 - February & March - Hard Court Spring

Win over Vekic 2&2. Didn't watch this match, but Julia didn't even face a single BP so she probably served very well. Yesterday I saw the 3rd set against Kontaveit, and Jules 1st serve looked superb for me.
Next match - QF vs. Vickmayer/Khromacheva, so it's winnable too.

Re: Julia's 2017 - February & March - Hard Court Spring



I couldn´t watch it as well but that was much easier than expected, Vekic's 1st serve percentage was quite bad, incl. 6 DFs, which surely helped Julia!

Julia´s stats today look really good, indeed!

Aces: 8
DF: 0
1st serve IN: 66%
1st serve WON: 89%
2nd serve WON: 57%
BPs saved: 0/0



Good that she made it in under an hour today after that long match yesterday, tomorrow off and then hopefully a good match on Friday as well, her serve will be important again!

She played very good. Moved very well and thatfor was early with her groundstrokes.

Re: Julia's 2017 - February & March - Hard Court Spring

Jule def. Wickmayer 6-1 7-5

Managed to catch the second half of the second set, at times somewhat spotty off the ground, but great, great serving. Finished it with 4 aces in a row

Also good composure, wasted triple BP at 4-4 in the second but didn't fold after that and just kept going.

Re: Julia's 2017 - February & March - Hard Court Spring

Serve really was great again today, in general she is on fire with her serve this week!
13 aces, 2 DFs, no break pts against her, just good!

Semifinal again, that happens regularly again lately, positive sign!
Wins against Kontaveit,Vekic and Wickmayer and only got broken once in those three matches!

Babos or Dodin next, both tough, let´s hope that Julia will have another good day but good tournament for her already for sure.

Re: Julia's 2017 - February & March - Hard Court Spring

I want a Jule-Carina final in Budapest so badly!

What do I have to sacrifice?

Re: Julia's 2017 - February & March - Hard Court Spring

well, Julia lost 57 16!
I had no time to watch it but seems like she had no chance, bad on return (nothing new against better players) and seems like only her 1st serve kept her alive in 1st set, 2nd set she went down 0-5 quickly.

anyway, a good tournament in general, much better than expected after the FC weekend incl injury!

Re: Julia's 2017 - February & March - Hard Court Spring

ACAPULCO


I hope that Julia is fit enough for this tournament as well after Budapest:

1st round vs. K.Bondarenko
2nd round vs. Tsurenko or Q/LL

Bondarenko and Tsurenko are both not easy but also beatable, we´ll see how it goes, good luck!

Re: Julia's 2017 - February & March - Hard Court Spring

She only flew to Acapulco yesterday, I doubt that with basically no time to get used to the conditions and timezone she'll be able to do much damage here.

Re: Julia's 2017 - February & March - Hard Court Spring

and she won 26 64 63
great fight again, surely had to get used to the conditions at first but stats look really good in 3rd set, well done!

Tsurenko next, we´ll see if Julia has enough energy left, last year in Rome she lost after giving a way that big lead, so it would be nice if she could win this time....

Re: Julia's 2017 - February & March - Hard Court Spring

retired at 16 02 down!
I couldnt watch, not sure about the reason, I guess/hope it was just too much for her lately with Budapest, then travelling to Acapulco and then immediately a long match against K.Bond again!

Deserved rest now, get ready for IW and win one match there at least!!
