Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Yes guys, it's a good draw. Now let's forget about the start of the season and let's be a bit optimistic. She normally doesn't lose in early rounds at GS. And a possible 3rd round matchup against Stosur will surely motivate her even more. God, I want this to happen so badly.

Auf geht's Jule

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

The qualifier she got is Dushevina.

Good luck at the AO Julia! Hopefully she resumes her habit of reaching R3.

This a must-win. No excuses.

Was already posted in her interview thread.

But you could have made a little summary in English if you already put it in here.
Some details are of the interview are not quite uninteresting.

On request on her eyes -

Quote:
Vorher hatte ich 6,25 und 4,75 Dioptrien. Ab und zu denke ich: "Wow, die Farben und Eindrücke sind so scharf!" Die ersten Tage war es ganz komisch, vor allem im Fernsehen. Da habe ich eine Talkshow geschaut, und das beige Jackett eines Politikers hat mich so geblendet. So grell habe ich früher nie gesehen.

Before the surgery I had 6,25 and 4,75 diopters on my eyes.
"Sometimes I think : Wow, the colours and and impressions are so sharp ! The first couple of days it was pretty strange, first of all when I was watching TV. I was watching a talkshow and was so dazzled by the beige jacket of a politician. I never sensed (the colours) such loud before."
Q. Why didn`t you make that surgery earlier ? -


Quote:
"Aber Dr. Uthoff von der Augenklinik in Kiel hat mein Match bei den French Open gesehen, bei dem ich so Probleme mit der Dunkelheit hatte und daraufhin meinen Vater kontaktiert. Er fragte, ob ich das nicht machen lassen will. Dr. Uthoff hat mir die Angst genommen, dass da etwas schiefgehen könnte und ich vielleicht hinterher gar nichts mehr sehe.

"Dr Uthoff of the eye clinic at Kiel had watched my match at the French Open, where I had such big troubles in the twilight. He approached my dad afterwards and he asked me whether I didn`t want him to treat it. He stilled my fear that something could go wrong and I probably even could get blind afterwards."
Q. Your aims in 2013 ? -

Quote:
Ich hüte mich immer davor, irgendwelche Zahlen zu nennen. Aber grundsätzlich ist es ein großes Ziel, dass ich in dieser Saison möglichst wenig Matches verschenke. Dass ich wenig Tiefen habe und konstant spiele. Vor allem gegen die Spielerinnen, die hinter mir stehen und vielleicht einen Super-Tag erwischt haben. Da will ich trotzdem mein Level spielen, auch wenn man so ein Match mal verliert.

I take care not to state any numbers. But it`s very important and a big aim of mine to give away a minimum of matches in this season. To have just a few lows and play consistently. First of all against players who are behind me in the rankings and probably have a very good day (when they play against me). I want to play my level then, but of course it can still happen that you loose such a match.
Q. Your best result in the last season was reaching the last 16 at the AO. At the same time it was your worst performance. The critics afterwards where harsh. Was that reasonable for you ? -


Quote:
"Görges: Natürlich, ich bin ja selbst meine härteste Kritikerin und leider auch eine Perfektionistin. Das ist im Sport nicht sehr hilfreich, aber ich habe viel aus diesem Match gegen Radwanska mitgenommen. Man kann immer verlieren, aber man sollte nicht so auf dem Platz stehen. Aus jeder Niederlage lernt man mehr als aus Siegen, und die harten Niederlagen formen den Charakter. Definitiv hat mir diese Niederlage letztes Jahr hier gezeigt, worauf es wirklich ankommt. So habe ich danach nicht mehr auf dem Platz gestanden und das wird auch nie mehr passieren."

Of course I myself am the harshest critic on my own and unlucky I`m also a perfectionist. This attitude is not very helpful in sport but at least I took a lot of this match against Radwanska
You take more out of each of your losses than of the wins, and the bad losses even shape your character. This loss definitely showed what it`s all about. I never performed like that on the court afterwards and it also won`t happen to me anymore.
Big words,...hopefully she really knows what it`s all about now.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

The interview has just been taken before the Australian Open and I have to say the interviewer should not only have asked about her goals for 2013 but also mention the loss to Larsson in Auckland. This is not to bash Julia, but an interview should always have a couple of critical questions.
