She knew that she was never so close to Vika before and then she gave it easily away in the end.
The passion she shows right now is a good sign. The performances of the last 2 tournament surely will give her a lot of confidence.
Yes, and it showed that she is hungry for more

Linz was one of her best tournaments in this season.
But her main problem is to show this kind of form at nearly 90% of the season and not only at 10%.

If she's too tired then she should withdraw from Luxembourg. But she will have 2 days rest now and her draw is not that difficult.

I suppose you're right

Well, I still think it's a question of whether her body can take it or not, so, if something new, her body can finally take it.

Ah, forgot that you regard the physical aspect as crucial. Yeah, you might have a point here.

I notice that she likes to hit inside out backhand. She love this shot. Maybe this is her most constant shot, I don't know.

I noticed it more as a return. But her "normal" BH seemed more consistent lately (not the first time, though). Vika even lost (at least) a BH rally against her. It was unbelievable

Julia . Not a bad scoreline and it seems she had chances. But it's a bit of a pity to end up as the runner up in both finals (and by the same score).

Im so proud of her, even though Vika was the better player, but im so happy to see her more consistent in this one tournament, its been a long while since ive seen her in the final.

Julia

But Linz was a great tournament for her

Julia reached the final, played fantastic tennis in Linz. Very good win over Hantuchova. And she only lost in final to #1 Azarenka who seems unstoppable. Julia played some impressive tennis in 1st set until 3-4 and in 2nd set from 0-5 to 4-5. She showed excellent fighting spirit, in R1 vs Hantuchova, then in SF vs Flipkens and now vs Azarenka. Very positive week.

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

I've got two tickets for Sofia, so Julia would better qualify

Julia already is playing tomorrow again, meh, hoped that she would play on Wednesday!

Anyway, 3rd match after 12pm on CC against Soler, should win this time if she isn´t too tired!

Makarova and Lepchenko both lost R1 in Moscow, this should mean that Julia has a Top 20 position at the end of the year, right? Even if Jankovic wins Luxembourg?!
