Re: Julia's video thread
So I made a translation of that interview on Eurosport. At some points it's a bit clumsy, but I am too lazy to make it more accurate, sorry
I: It was a nervous start but you found your game pretty soon.
J: Yes, I lost against her in Bad Gastein and when you go out on court you really want to to win, but it's always pretty tight at the beginning. She is a very solid player who doesn't make many mistakes. And I simply made too many mistakes at the beginning until I finally found my game.
I: You played very aggressively. Was that the reason why you won? Because the last two times you lost against her.
J: Actually my game is always pretty aggressive. I just have to learn to control it [literally: "to control the balls"] and to wait for the right balls. This wasn't the case at the beginning of the match, but, thank god, after that I was able to do it.
I: You seem to be incredibly fit [no pun intended]. Your legs are so amazing... [she is Austrian, I have no clue what or if she says anything after "amazing". Actually she says "wahnsinnig" and that's not really translatable in this context] Did you change anything during your preparation?
J: Well, since I work with Sascha Nensel the last two years everything changed a little bit. I became fitter, lost weight [kilos] and I simply move better now. Thus I've got a better feeling for my game now then before.
I: You are in the third round for the first time. What does that mean to you?
Yeah, it's the fourth time this year I reached the third round. So that's pretty consistent and I'm glad about that. But of course, I want to reach the fourth round this time. However, every round is tough, but I'm looking forward to it.
