Julia´s End of the Season 2017 | Wuhan | Beijing | Moscow

Julia is back in action next week in Wuhan!

1st round vs. Gavrilova
2nd round vs. Radwanska/Rybarikova
3rd round vs. Konta/Bellis/Barty

Not an easy draw obviously, Gavrilova will be a tough match for Julia already and then it does not get much easier although she recently beat Radwanska but also Rybarikova is in good shape, we´ll see how it goes, beating Gavrilova would be really good already, 1st round exit wouldn´t be too disappointing with such a draw...

Shame that Julia´s subforum is that empty recently, her best season since 2012 and we barely have posters in here!!

Re: Julia´s End of the Season 2017 | Wuhan | Beijing | Moscow

Actually given that it's a P5, I think it's a good draw. As long as Julia is still in form, she can play her game against Gavrilova and be in control the whole time. We'll see but I think Julia will win. If she loses, I think it'll be a bad loss due to a sudden dip in form after a big summer, but let's hope that's not the case.

And yes, it's too bad that Julia's forum isn't as active now but I think in general, all of TF has slowed down. Anyways, us loyal will always be here and that's all that matters.

Re: Julia´s End of the Season 2017 | Wuhan | Beijing | Moscow

Julia beat Gavrilova 64 16 64

Good start for Julia in Asian also, really happy with that win, good comeback in 3rd set also after the weak 2nd set!
Gavrilova gifted Julia the win with too many DFs in the end but that´s part of the game also, Julia herself was able to hold at least at 4-4. after she wasted a 4-1 lead before.

Radwanska next, interesting match as usual, Julia has the weapons to beat her but we all know that Julia can turn into an UE machine also and then she won´t have any chance, let´s hope that her serve works and then we´ll see, 2nd round is a good result here in Wuahn already anyway!

Not a bad win over Dasha. I'm hopeful she'll play well against Aga, she knows she is capable of beating her since she has done it before.

Another tough, close match which Julia wins.

Now she faces Aga second time in this season. This is tough to predict: Aga is still far from her best, she made more errors than usual in her match won over Rybarikova. But on the other hand she's bad match-up for Julia, in their last meeting Julia played really well, was clutch and it was still hard-fought victory for her.

Re: Julia´s End of the Season 2017 | Wuhan | Beijing | Moscow

Qualifier will be Madison Brengle, great chances to get revenge for that defeat in Paris!
Brengle is obviously a big fighter but has a very limited game also, good chances for Julia to win this, as long as she does not make too many UEs!

2nd round looks tough, could have been better but who knows, Muguruza is very up and down at times also but Strycova could be dangerous also but as i said before, barely "easy" rounds at such events but 1st round could have been much tougher for sure.

solid 64 63 over Brengle!
2nd set was a bit tougher than it should have been after a quick *30 lead but never really in danger, only 40% of 1st serves IN, she is struggeling with her first first percentage lately a bit in general, she surely has to improve here against Muguruza/Strycova!

Not Muguruza but Strycova in next round, tough one also but we´ll see if she can win it, she usually had interesting matches in the past against her, I do hope that she can serve well and does not make too many UEs!

Re: Julia´s End of the Season 2017 | Wuhan | Beijing | Moscow

lost 46 26 to Strycova

disappointing stuff here, was 4-2* ahead in 1st set, then got broken twice in a row after a 30-0 lead, 9 lost games in a row also and only one service game won after the 4-2 lead, that´s pretty bad unfortunately, losing to Strycova is no shame but I surely expected more than that.
Good that her section is still quite tough with Vandeweghe/Gavrilova next and then Woz/Kvitova, so the chances for a great run here were small anyway, otherwise this defeat would have been more annoying.

Moscow next and last, the slow indoor surface should suit her game, SF points to defend, let´s hppe for a good draw, she deserves it to end the season with a good result.

I think Julia still has a shot to qualify for Zhuhai, especially if she plays well in Moscow. It looks like Julia will end the season around 25 which is great, and with so many right above her seriously struggling with a lot to defend in the beginning of next year, I think Julia could make a quick push for the Top 20 early next season.

Moscow

[7] Görges vs. Qualifier

2nd round vs. Putintseva/Pervushina

Julia´s shape was not that great in Asia but not a bad draw here, hope she can reach the QF here, would be a nice end of the season!
