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

Julia is great grass court player when her serve is on. Kirilenko is still waiting for her match and she could play two matches tomorrow. So I think Julia will be 4th on anyone court! There are few chances to rain tomorrow, but it's round.3.

Exactly. We shouldn't act like this is the regular tour -- the Olympics is a different ball-game and Julia will be motivated so I'm not that particularly scared of the R3.

Additionally, Julia has defeated players she didn't have win against in the past so all these are positive signs.

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
I don't want to lack of fair-play but Heather would be an excellent match for Julia because considering how she psychologically entered her match on center court against Aga in Wimbledon she wouldn't give Julia much though opposition at this stage of the competition.

Obviously this is just a parenthesis but these factors would be of some help to make lovely Julia go deep in the draw.

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

I'm so surprised. I can't believe this. Who would have thought it is possible. Only 8 aces?

Now, not to brag, but I was pretty confident it would be an easy one (though apparently the second set was not so easy), as it should be if she's on. Hopefully the third round curse will be lifted. And it's a different third round. Now the toughest opponent was in the first round. Well, I'm pretty confident again

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

Kirilenko played well at Wimbledon, so we'll see. Can imagine to see this go to three sets.

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

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

Julia has to play well to beat Kirilenko!
The Russian is quite consistent usually but doesn´t have any bigger weapons IMO, Julia has to serve well and stay aggressive, just like she did against Radwanska, I hope that she will be consistent enough herself to win it.
But it would almost surprise me if Julia would be able to beat Rad,Lepchenko and Kirilenko in a row but we´ll see!

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

Julia into Olympics R3 !

Very happy Julia backed up her win over A.Radwanska. Great comeback from 3-5 to win 7-5.
Consistent Kirilenko next. Julia`s serve must work, she has to stay aggressive and move her feet.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

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

Julia Goerges, who defeated Varvara Lepchenko, 63 75 : "The last time we played I lost to her, so I got a little bit of revenge this time," said Goerges, who took out No.2 seed Agnieszka Radwanska in the first round. "I'm pretty happy. I was serving well, playing aggressively and just kept fighting. She was fighting too. I expected a tough match and I got it."
