Dann wird ihr so ein Mist wie dieses Jahr bei den French Open ja hoffentlich nicht wieder passieren.

Julia has a new Physio, Damian Prasad, who also worked (still working?) with Petrova and Ivanovic (http://www.julia-goerges.com). Her team gets more and more professional.

My first thought too.

Looks better than the old one though.

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

Talk about lost in translation: in the English version of her website she's lost 2 inches in height (5'9")!

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

I think it's just that whoever is running her homepage (her management company most likely) hasn't updated parts of it in an eternity. It also says that she dreams of travelling to Australia, which by now she must have done 5 or 6 times. Maybe she was 5'9" when she first filled out that questionnaire and they updated it for the German one but were too lazy to convert it into imperial measurements.

Yes, either this or someone is severely math-challenged. I hope she doesn't pay these people much for their services. I haven't checked the new website but the old one claimed her favorite playing surface was grass (which might have been the case for a few days after winning a match on grass at some point in time).

That is because she still claims it is, she said that in an interview earlier this year as well. I found it hard to believe but apparently she really considers grass to be her favorite surface...which is odd for sure.

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

Nah, it's been clay for quite some time now. Grass dates probably back to the time before she had actually played on it.

Why not, you can like it even if you don't play best on it

I remember an interview she gave where the reporter said something to the effect "You've stated that grass is your favorite surface to play on" and Julia looked at him like he had three heads and said "I did?????". Don't remember what year that was, though.

Well, yeah, theoretically, but then you probably wouldn't try to avoid playing on it as much as humanly possible.

Last year she went back to clay both between the FO and Wimbledon and between Wimbledon and the Olympics.

I think it was this year, but I don't remember which interview it was exactly.
