Re: Julia Görges - Official Live Scoring thread

Marion's first strike deadly right now. Julia must absorb it better, keep Marion back until she has a chance to counter. And she needs first serves.

Re: Julia Görges - Official Live Scoring thread

Very weak start

If she doesn't wake up, this match will be over in one hour.

Re: Julia Görges - Official Live Scoring thread

Julia needs to step back, set up further behind the baseline, give herself time to set up. On serve she must get back behind the baseline immediately after her second serve. If she can just absorb the first few shots and get them back deep she might have a chance to get a counter. On that second point of Marion's serve just passed, she mishit a return but it was high and deep and pushed Marion back, and then she had a chance to attack. That's what she needs- push Marion back, absorb the first few shots, then attack.

And good first serves!

Re: Julia Görges - Official Live Scoring thread

Much better in this game. First serve is a precondition to have a chance in this match.
But she still can`t handle Marion hard and flat balls.

Re: Julia Görges - Official Live Scoring thread

That's the exact play I'm talking about. Absorb the serve, push Marion back, then you have time, hit the counter attack.

However I still think Julia needs to set up further back to return. Marion is going big even on the second serve.

Maybe she'll serve 14 DFs, too

Re: Julia Görges - Official Live Scoring thread

Smart. Chipped the return back, then once she was set up she attacked, even from far behind the baseline.

Nice break.

Commentators thought that Julia's fh winner on the second (or third?) point "came out of nowhere". No it didn't. She absorbed the serve, and then she finally had her feet set up well behind the ball. It doesn't matter for Julia that she's 3 metres behind the baseline then, with her heavy shots she can attack from there, so long as her feet are planted far enough behind the bounce and she has time.
