Press reports that Julia had angina.
The question is, why she was playing when she is still weak.
It's clear that Julia doesn't want to appear weak. That's why she says she's "100% fit" when in fact she's not.
I guess she is a little bit swamped and exhausted overall. Mentally and physically.
Julia probably needs a little break to recover entirely.
I agree. We have already talked about this at the beginning of the year when she continued to play despite not feeling well at all. I say it again: imo health comes first and if this means to skip important tournaments, then so be it. Something is clearly wrong with her. It's time that she sees some real
medical experts to let them find out what's causing these constant health problems. It getting ridiculous really..
Having said that, I'm not so sure she is going to do that. I listened again to what Julia and Sascha talked about in the match against Rezai and that's quite telling:
At 38:03 she says that she feels no "explosiveness" in her arm and then at 38:11 she points at her throat saying: "Ist alles voller Schleim" (full of mucus). Sascha's reaction? "Yeah, I understand but you got to struggle through that". So Julia is actually sending clear signs that she's not feeling well (just look at her face). Sascha, however, chooses to ignore her obvious health problems. How is she suppose to change something if her coach sees no problem here?
