Another match on grass would have been wonderful, don't you think? It would have saved the WTA again.
Anyway, I have nothing against Caro and I definitely care about Julia's career. But those matches are symbols of consistency for her. And I think the surface is not that important. She wasn't far from beating her at Copenhagen in 2010, but the consistency wasn't there in that match.
Yes but it's the context around the Julia vs. Wozanicki match up that annoys me
but you're right, these matches are references for her and definitively symbols of consistency
because it's really in that period she started clicking with her game on a more regular basis.
I believe Julia can do well on any surface, I've always trusted her on that but the thing is will she really !? Faster surfaces really would not favor her because of her unique technique, this is all theoretical because with confidence you can accomplish a lot - and maybe this is the year to make a statement on Decoturf.
I'm still awaiting a good solid US Open series since last year she skipped all of the events leading up to the US Open - grass was Julia's so said worst surface
which would probably have been a fact since it was only her 8th match on grass in Eastbourne, yet, she still made it to the 3rd. round of Wimbledon like a champ and wasn't that far from making it to the 4th.
She's learning very well, it's maybe not as quick progression like Petra Kvitova for example but this is only just a start before she reserves the better for the future.
Well, she turned it around though.
Those matches in Mexico must have been probably pretty awful too. I have a bad feeling about the fact that she's the first seed again (and
the defending champion).
Yes it's not easy to be the defending champion - I'm not sure the #1 seed affects her that much.
She's won the event before so she must definitively be comfortable with the environment and stuff and use last year's experience to prevail.
