Yeah, it's actually about time We'll see.

Yeah I agree but in Eastbourne Julia really played a non-match since that break-back if I recall at 4-2 in the first set by Ana. Her serve and ground-game went totally absent --

I really hope Julia rises unto the occasion in these 3rd. round matches, she really under-performs considerably and that's going to be a problem.

I think/hope she'll win in 3.

Sorry for Javier and other Ana fans -- I know both girls really really need it equally (that 4th. round) but I really want the win for Julia more than Julia herself.

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia

Yakimova had some good stats against Minella and she can be tricky as former top 50 player althouh she obviously "sucked" recently!
But strange that Julia was totally without chance on return in 1st set but happy at least that she was able to win the TB then and was able to save a BP before.
But typical for Julia then that she isn´t able to keep focus then, 5 breaks in a row in 2nd set after a 1st set without any breaks, typical....but good that Yakimova served some DFs in 2nd set and Julia had no problems in the end.
Stats were quite good again, many winners as always, she really seems to play aggressive tennis on grass!!

Next is Ivanovic, interesting match! Both with many up´s and down´s in their games, I hope that Julia´s serve works and that Ana´s serve will be off, then she has a chance
But anyway, I expect Ivanovic to win but I am happy that she was able to win two matches here at least already

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia

Happy Julia is into Wimbledon R3 !

But 7-6 against Yakimova is worrying. Julia definitely has to improve in order to beat Ivanovic. If her serve is off and her footwork/movement weak, then no chance to win.

Well, Ivanovic is the favourite in this match anyway, so nothing to lose for Julia really

Good Luck

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia

I want Mixed more than anything! I hope that she is able to win more matches on grass with Nestor! Mixed matches are very interesting anyway. So I don't care for singles now, it was rather disappointing, though!

Julia . From the scoreline it seems it was a good match though I didn't see it.

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia

^^^ Poor fellow !

Her mixed match in the evening will be streamed.

Julia does not twitter a lot right now.
What might Julia feel about the success of her compatriots at Wimbledon ?
For sure she`s happy for the other girls.
I hope it encourages her and she floors her car in the hard court season.

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia

Quote:
One person who knows about the bad stuff is Daniel Nestor. He lost in men’s doubles last Friday and has now waited around four full days without playing his first-round mixed doubles alongside the fetching Julia Goerges of Germany.

On Tuesday evening, Nestor and Goerges got on Court 3 at 7:30 p.m. and warmed up only to have more spitting rain descend and force cancellation before a single point was played.




I caught up with Nestor, above, returning to the locker room Tuesday evening with Goerges, and asked him why he had not just chucked the mixed doubles and returned home with his wife Natasha and three-year-old daughter Tiana after his doubles loss. After all, the three have been in Europe since leaving Toronto for Paris on May 21.

“Because I’m a man of my word,” he replied. He then added, with the wry humour that is his calling card, “we’ve had great practice sessions – a mixed doubles training camp.”
