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.

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

I actually wanted to say in the previous message that she seems an all-courter. But I think she always plays better (i.e. consistent) indoor. Her last two finals were indoor, and she had some health problems in the one she lost. I think there is a pretty good chance of winning another one this year. Maybe she somehow feels less pressure indoor?

Anyway, she played on grass about as well as on clay (of course, only at Wimby), if not better. She crushed Medina and dealt pretty well with a very solid performance by Johansson. And, of course, Cibulkova was helpless against her. After seeing her at Eastbourne, I didn't have any expectations and her new and improved game was a very pleasant surprise. Maybe she learns as fast as Kvitova, but she's not that fit and confident. And she doesn't have Navratilova to give her advice and support

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

We should forget about Bad Gastein very fast as obviously Julia didn't seem to care that much... - I'd had loved for her to defend a title for the first time in her career but it will not be in Austria. So next stop is Stanford hopefully better fortunes on the fast HCs.

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

I think this loss meant out of top 20. And this trend will probably continue. She lied, she didn't learn. Stuttgart and Madrid were probably mistakes. I don't think she will do very well in the US. Maybe indoor, at the end of the season. We can be optimistic, of course, but that will make it only worse for us. But hey, now we have another two weeks with no tennis from her and most probably with a lot of pics with nails

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

Only 200? I thought 279. Don't you lose all the points if you're the defending champion (except the one you earn for the 1st round)?

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

She will lose 310 points in the next 2 weeks.

130 from Palermo this week and 280 from Bad Gastein next week (Bad Gastein was one week later last year)
Both results will be replaced by 70 points from Copenhagen last year and 30 points from Bogota.

130 + 280 - 70 - 30 = 310


She will play all 5 weeks in the North America HC-Season and has only 70 points to defend from Copenhagen last year.

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

Damn, and I thought I understand the ranking system. Why does one get points from last year or from months ago?

Dubai 2010 30 points
Bogota 2011 30 points
Acapulco 2011 30 points
Monterrey 2011 1 point

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

Oh, I see. And had she defended her title, would she still had received those 70+30 points? And the points from Copenhagen have to be defended in another tournament in the same week as Copenhagen last year?

No, she wouldn't receive those points.

Yes, that would be the week with Carlsbad this year.

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

And she wouldn't receive the points from Copenhagen because the new points from Bad Gastein would be considered as one of the new best performances, even though they were defended?

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

Now I understand. Or so I think Thanks! So she will exit top 20 after all, right?

Maybe, she will only go down to 20-22. But she has only 70 points to defend in the HC-season and will play Stanford, Carlsbad, Toronto, Cincinnati and Dallas.
