Meet Julia Görges vol2

Quote:
Sie ist die Tennis-Aufsteigerin des Jahres
Sportlerwahl: Die 17 Jahre alte Oldesloerin erreichte das DM-Halbfinale. Die Ahrensburger Zeitung stellt die Kandidaten vor. Heute: Profispielerin Julia Görges aus Bad Oldesloe.

Von Manfred Bode

Bad Oldesloe -

Wenn Julia Görges in diesen Tagen nach Australien blickt, hat das nicht nur mit den angenehmen Temperaturen down under zu tun. Die Oldesloerin, die nach dem Erwerb der mittleren Reife im Sommer die Theodor-Mommsen-Schule verließ und seitdem versucht, als Tennisprofi Fuß zu fassen, hat ein Faible für den fünften Kontinent und verfolgt zudem das Comeback der ehemaligen Nummer eins der WTA-Weltrangliste, Martina Hingis (24), die nach vierjähriger Turnierabstinenz in Gold Coast das Halbfinale erreichte. "Sie ist für mich die kompletteste Spielerin, vor allem wegen ihrer Übersicht", sagt die 17jährige.

Während die Schweizerin aber schon fast alles gewonnen hat, was zu gewinnen ist, steht Julia noch am Anfang ihrer Karriere. Die Rasanz, mit der sie sich seit Juni in der deutschen Rangliste bis auf Position 30 verbessert hat, ist bemerkenswert. "Ich habe mich konditionell, besonders in der Beinarbeit, gesteigert und bin im Match ruhiger geworden", so die Oldesloerin. Diese Entwicklung führt sie auf die Vergrößerung des Trainingsumfangs und das intensivere Arbeiten mit ihrem Coach Axel Pretzsch und dem Konditionstrainer Gunnar Weitschat zurück.

Die Umstellung von fünf Einheiten pro Woche auf häufig zwei am Tag machte der 1,80 Meter großen norddeutschen Meisterin zu Beginn keine Schwierigkeiten. Nach drei Wochen jedoch erfolgte die Reaktion. "Da war ich schon sehr müde und dankbar, in Ralf Gericke einen tollen Physiotherapeuten im Team zu haben."

Der Bargteheider Gericke, ein Freund der Familie, war es auch, der Julia bei ihrem bislang größten Erfolg im Damen-Tennis maßgeblich zur Seite stand. Als sie sich bei den deutschen Hallen-Meisterschaften in Isernhagen in der ersten Runde eine Muskelzerrung im Rücken zuzog, reiste Gericke umgehend an und sorgte mit seiner Behandlung dafür, daß Julia als ungesetzte Spielerin fast schmerzfrei das Halbfinale erreichte. Daß sie dort der Stuttgarterin Tatjana Malek 0:6, 0:6 unterlag, empfindet Görges mittlerweile als Lehre.

Dennoch genießt Julia beim Deutschen Tennis-Bund weiterhin viel Vertrauen. Seit Sommer 2005 gehört sie zum Perspektiv-Kader von FedCup-Chefin Barbara Rittner, besucht regelmäßig Lehrgänge und gehörte zum deutschen Aufgebot für die U-18-EM in Klosters (Schweiz), wo sie überraschend bis ins Viertelfinale vorstieß. So kommt es auch nicht von ungefähr, daß sie für die internationalen Würtembergischen Hallenmeisterschaften in Stuttgart (10 000 Dollar) eine Wildcard für das 32er-Hauptfeld erhielt und am Mittwoch als Nummer 1129 der Weltrangliste auf eine Gegnerin der Top 500 treffen wird.

Seit dem 3. Januar bereitet sich Julia, die vor der DM vier Turniere gewann und dabei Nord - und Landesmeisterin wurde, im neuen zentralen DTB-Nachwuchs-Leistungszentrum in Stuttgart-Stammheim auf das Turnier der German-Masters-Serie vor und bewohnt dort mit drei Kameradinnen ein Vierer-Zimmer. Immer dabei: der CD-Player mit ihren Musikfavoriten Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston und Blue. "Ich höre aber auch die Charts rauf und runter", sagt die Teenagerin, die es genießt, die Eltern mal auf Distanz zu wissen.

Der tägliche Anruf bei Mutter Inge und Vater Klaus, die einst die fünfjährige Tochter mit auf den Tennisplatz nahmen und damit den Stein ins Rollen brachten, bleibt aber nie aus. Julia weiß, was sie ihren Eltern zu verdanken hat und beißt sich auch an schlechten Tagen im Training durch.

Eine kürzlich beim DTB vorgenommene Leistungsdiagnostik hat ergeben, daß Julia drei Kilogramm Untergewicht hat, wobei ihr zwei Kilogramm Muskelmasse fehlen. Ihre Lieblingsspeisen Nudeln, Pizza und Steak könnte sie sich also ohne Reue in größeren Mengen einverleiben. Aber auch in punkto Ernährung ist Julia diszipliniert. Sollte es mit der Profikarriere dennoch nicht klappen, hat sie aber auch schon Plan B im Kopf: "Dann werde ich mein Abi nachmachen und einen anderen Berufsweg einschlagen." Ihr Lieblingsland Australien will sie auf jeden Fall einmal bereisen - notfalls halt privat.

Oh you've done it now, thanks for that!

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

I'm going to create a video thread for Julia. Does someone want to create a livescore thread?

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

Finally

we already have a live score thread for Julia but that was created by a poster who is banned now, so I guess it is better to make a new one

But you can also create that ,Howard, or we wait until she plays again

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

Great that there is the new subforum now Interesting though that the first issue in this new subforum is whether to write her with "ö" or "oe"...

Anyway, guys what do you think about Julia's pre-US Open schedule? It looks pretty packed, doesn't it?

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

It might be too early to ask that question, but how far can Julia go in her career ?
All in all, I think, Julia is actually a very talented tennis player.
She climbed up the rankings quite rapidly, and achieved already a lot in her career, getting in the Top 20.
Together with Andrea and Sabine, she has a large share, that German women`s tennis currently looks up again. There is no doubt.
In the last three Grand Slams she lost her 3.round matches in a pretty similar way.
Especially against Domenica at Wimbledon, it was obvious, that Julia lost confidence in her game, when it mattered, although she was clearly the better player, when her game was on.
At this level of stage she needs to get more consistent and determined.
Can Julia still go a step further and is this just a matter of time and experience ?
Another poster accurately said, that her game is big, but she can`t yet master it.
Hard to compare, but if you watch the latest progressions of other "hard hitters" like Kvitova and Ivanovic, it seems to be very important, how you can handle this point ?
Any meanings ?

I feel it's way packed. She's scheduled for 4* tournaments in August (2 in July), including Texas Tennis Open* which is a week before the USO. I'd rather she withdrew from that one at least. I don't want her to repeat Hantuchova's mistake by playing both Birmingham, and Eastbourne a week before SW19 and coming into it with injuries. Most of the top 20 players are playing 2-3 tournaments as USO preparation.

* According to her FB events page. Her website doesn't list Texas Open.

Julia herself said before her recent success that she wants to take it one step at a time, that it's not important to climb the rankings fast but steadily. I also heard her saying that it's her game to go for it, even if she misses a lot. But because her game was always a little bit hit and miss she learned to deal with it and won't let discourage her by some errors.With her Title and the SF she jumped up the rankings a bit, but I'm quite confident that her approach hasn't changed. In recent interviews she comes accross as being very rational about the losses at GS and she said that she learned a lot from it. To be honest I would be a little bit worried if she had even more success than she actually had because I thinks the step by step approach seems to be the better one than to skyrocket to success. Because now she can learn to bring the big game to big matches with some ups and downs. But if she had really unexpected success now, if she were constantly on an up, I don't know if she could cope well if than things were not going here way, let alone handling the pressure the Big success alone brings with it.
So long story short, I'm not worried, everything is going according to plan, even better to be precise beacause nobody expected her to win Stuttgart. The approach is step by step and I'm happy with that, because with a to big of a jump the likely fallback could be hurtfull, the question would be if she could cope with that. So I'm optimistic for Julia's future and the women's tennis in germany in general. That's good for Julia too, because she can share the inevetable media pressure in germany wit Sabine and Andrea. So at the end there is just one thing to say foe me now: GO JULIA

Re: Meet Julia Görges vol2

fleckes said it almost everything in my opinion... I´ve always liked the way how Julia has been improving step by step she´s not any teenrocket who reached the sky very quickly... it looks she has made much bigger improvement this season than a few seasons before... I believe Julia can be a regular Top 10 player along with Petko and Sabine... German tennis can look forward to the great future because all the girls are still very young and have a lot to reach in their career... there is no rush on Julia to make another big improvement this season she should keep her position in the rankings or make it even better if there is a chance...
