Re: Julia Görges Interviews and Twitter thread

It means that she still feels exhausted because of the Olympics (she doesn't specify whether she means mentally or physically).

Re: Julia Görges Interviews and Twitter thread

Crazillo's explanation is right. The phrase has to do with mental and physical exhaustion. It has a similar meaning to "sapped my energy." Some people discussed it in this thread which I found: http://forum.wordreference.com/showthread.php?t=2061112

I'm satisfied with how I played in the 1st set but after the rain delay I lost the plot and simply played badly. I wanted to put pressure on her, to make her move but it didn't work out, because I didn't convert like 20 break chances.

After having reached the 3rd round at GS seven times in a row, it's now the first time I went out in the 1st round. That's disappointing, of course, but the olympics took a lot out of me. I know that I have the quality to achieve something big at GS. But I have to give myself more time
"
This is from Sabine's statement. Would have been a bit laughable if she had pointed out that she hadn't enough practice and matches before the USO.

Thank all of you for the answer. So, oh julia, did the olympics exhausted her? Oh, she played 3 matches almost 1 month ago... Ofcourse thats the reason why she brutally beated by a no name player. That totally make sense.

Re: Julia Görges Interviews and Twitter thread

The LASIK technology seems to really have progressed a lot, I remember a friend having it done 5 or so years ago and for her it took a few days until the vision was perfect...wasn't allowed to drive a car for 2 weeks if I remember correctly. Anyway, good for Julia that everything went smoothly apparently.

Re: Julia Görges Interviews and Twitter thread

There are possible complications for night vision but hopefully the result is ideal for Julia.

That's why a lot of other players- Henin, Novak etc didn't want to get the surgery done, it isn't a guaranteed perfect result so they are afraid it might produce complications. But the surgeons have been no doubt getting better at it and if it works out well then her life will be a lot more convenient.

In NZ you'd have to pay for it- research suggests about three thousand NZ dollars.

Re: Julia Görges Interviews and Twitter thread

The other common complication is dry eyes so I guess she will be bringing more eye drops to the court now.
