Good fight from Julia here!
First set was horrible, serve wasn´t effective and she made too many mistakes, but it is difficult for her when she plays someone like Sveta, as she plays fast as well and she just has that huge swing on her fh and her bh isn´t her best stroke anyway.
Sveta played quite good anyway but Julia didn´t even give her much chances to make errors anyway but Kuznetsova isn´t able to play on a consistent level these days.
Not satisfied with the way Julia played at 3-3 right after she broke herself, really lucky here that Sveta gave her the break right back with some terrible play. But as I said, good fight at least and good play in 3rd set, especially serve was much better then and also less errors, last service game was
as well but Sveta helped her with errors again.
But anyway, I hope that such wins will help Julia to be more confident in such situations in future to avoid defeats like against Zakopalova or Lepchenko where she had all chances to win as well.
Good points here again, a win over a former top 10 player and GS champion, always nice, I don´t see any chance against Azarenka but Julia wouldn´t be the first one who loses like 26 16 to Azarenka these days
Hope she can show some good play there at least!
