Picnic on the green grass with Julia - OLYMPICS !

Clay season ended with a nice accent - Doubles-Title in Bad Gastein So it's time to move on green grass.

Let's start a discussion about Wimbledon and the Olympics

Julia will be seeded in Wimbledon and will be in Top-23 (Petko, Kanepi out), it means Top-8 oponent in 4th round. So it's ok

(I prefer to say nothing about V.W. and K.C.)...

May be able to play like in Australia But above all I hope for the defense of points from last year (3rd round).

Come on Julia!

--------------------

Ps: hope it won't be a picnic on thickets

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia

Julia will be on position 22, toughest possible 1st round opponents are obviously Venus and Clijsters but also players like Makarova,Pironkova,Shvedova, Oudin etc. could be tricky.
I hope she gets a good draw and no Dutchie in 1st round.
Toughest possible 3rd round opponents are Bartoli,Li or Ivanovic also could face Zvonareva,Errani or Pennetta (which seems to be easier) or the surprise bags Cibulkova/Lisicki!

Will be interesting for sure, on a good day Julia will be able to beat any possible 1st round opponent anywy, except for Kim and Venus. Hopefully she learned from her mistakes from Paris and Gastein and stays focused.
Clay season was average this year but she had some success on hard court earlier, so grass also should suit here this year, she will have all chances as long as her serve works but she absolutely has to avoid cheap UEs when she has the chance to go for "easy" winners but that is mostly a question of concentration...

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia

Against Peer on grass and then Yakimova or Minella, if Julia doesn´t reach 3rd round here

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia

Yeah again, Julia should make the third round there again to certainly meet Victoria who'll be a whole lot different story for her -- hopefully we'll get that latter showing.

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia

Julia will play the 4th match on Court 4 tomorrow.

No show court and a late match again.

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia

It's beyond me why they show a match like McHale vs. Konta (No. 212) but not Julia vs. Peer. Anyway, good luck Jule


Edit: Just noticed, Konta is british..

Well considering Serena is on court 2 and Victoria on court 1, we could easily conclude that it's the anti-WTA/pro-ATP crusade so no worries on that side. Just hope Julia wins.

Re: Picnic on the green grass with Julia

The third round is more than makeable. Maybe even more.

All the best for Julia at Wimbledon.



Just do it !
