Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia - OLYMPICS !

Quotes from Julia

Quote:
"It was great, it was my first time representing Germany at the Olympics Games and it's my first time also on Centre Court at Wimbledon,” said Goerges, who had lost to Radwanska in two previous matches this year. “I'm pretty satisfied with the way I played. I'm relaxed here when I'm with the other athletes in the village. I played pretty aggressive and served well. I know if I play well it's dangerous for anyone and it was today, a lucky day."
Goerges hands Radwanska early exit


"This here isn't Wimbledon, it's the Olympics. It's something different, something new. That's why I went very relaxed into the match.

I'm living in the Olympic village too and not in the house in Wimbledon, even if I have to get up earlier for this.

I've a lot of fun there and can experience this only once in 4 years."

Sabine Lisicki Andrea Petkovic Julia Görges

Julia played great today.. No reason she can't be top ten if she plays like that, she won herself a fan too

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia - OLYMPICS !

Julia is very euphoric after the match. How should it be different ?


Fine that she`s living in the Olympic village, although it`s a pretty long way to the practice courts.
She enjoys the fantastic atmosphere and being a member of the German team.
Looking at the pics, she is also watching some other events.
That`s how the Olympics should be for the athlets.


Hi Lazyking !
Welcome to the rollercoaster ride with Julia.

Petsche is the only man on the hen party.
I think he prefers Julia for the mixed dubs.

Oh, I thought that was a good draw until you mentioned the head to head. I still think it's time for Julia to beat her.

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia - OLYMPICS !

Julia will play the 2nd match on court 12, a non-streamed court.

Doubles will be the 4th match on the same court.

And one of the two matches was on clay two years ago. Hardly too meaningful today. The other match was a 6:7 6:7 loss on Hard this year.
I think, it depends on Julia. If she is motivated, she should beat Lepchenko.

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia - OLYMPICS !

Julia's win against Radwanska was great. When she plays like that she's truly amazing.

If she plays anything like she did in R1 she should get a straightforward win against Lepchenko who struggled in her previous match. But you never know with Julia.
Good luck!

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia - OLYMPICS !

Jules! .Great win and great recovery from *5-3 down in the 2nd,she won the last 4 games of the match pretty easily .A bit too much DFs though ,but 8 aces today

Again this shows how important is to play for your country,somehow it makes you stronger mentally

R3 against either Kirilenko/Watson,it´s doable
