Petra probably is the better indoor player but Julia can still catch up becuase it's pretty close.
In all honesty, I'm afraid to say it's not even close between the 2 as far as it is concerned in indoor HCs... Petra's record is overwhelmingly better than Julia and if Petra plays half to the best she's able to play in these specific conditions, she'll win the tournament.
Plus, Petra has been in bad for after winning Wimbledon so i don't think she's a threat to Julia. Last year remember, Julia beat her at this same tournament 6-1,6-2 i think it was.
Yes but all these are pretty much relative...
Anyways Petra wasn't the same player a year back though it doesn't take off nothing from Julia's wonderful performance, arguably her best match for 2010 and to me one of her best matches up to date.
I'm sorry if I seem very pessimistic...
Anyways Julia will have Jelena to defeat first to have any kind of projections whatsoever on the matches after that...
Let's just hope already she gets through her early opponents, which is certainly not a given with Julia.
I haven't checked the Luxembourg list but i always feel its tougher. Hopefully yeah she'll win one of them. I know she deserves a wild card but i doubt she'll get it. Ana IMO deserves it more plus she's way more famous. With Pennetta taking Petkovic's spot, I think the draw is much more open for Julia now and Flavia tends to struggle when she gets deeper into a draw.
Yes the draw is a little bit more ok now... anyways as I said we'll see how all that develops, I just want good appearances and we'll see for the titles in the given moment.
