Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Phewww, the scare. Hopefully she got her shit together when it mattered. Hope the great end of the match gives her confidence

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

I have no explanation why Julia's level has considerably dropped from last year (at least) but I guess the purpose is to win -- theoretically she should undo Oprandi with ease but I haven't been lucky with my predictions with Julia in this year of 2013.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

In Linz Oprandi played pretty well, but Julia never gave up control of the match. I remember Oprandi getting quite pissed.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

The good news is:

Ben Rothenberg@BenRothenberg
The first point of 2013 Australian Open was won by Julia Goerges,
forcing a forehand return error by Vera Dushevina. Here we go.
#AusOpen



Bad news is Julia won't win a lot more points if she continues to play like this and she's aware of it.

Quote:
"Ich bin nicht zufrieden. Ich bin relativ angespannt ins Match gegangen und war viel zu verkrampft. Es war wohl so ein typisches Erstrundenmatch, das man einfach irgendwie überstehen muss. Erst am Ende bin ich besser reingekommen und wurde belohnt", sagte Görges, und dann: "Oprandi wird in der nächsten Runde eine harte Aufgabe, da muss ich ein bis zwei Schippen, drauflegen. Ich hoffe aber, dass es gut für mich laufen wird." (Eurosport.de)
I'm not satisfied. I went relatively tight into the match and was way too uptight. Obviously it was a typical 1st round match which you have simply to survive somehow. Only at the end I came better into the match and was rewarded. Oprandi will be a hard task next round, there I have to step up one, two levels. But I hope things will go right for me.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Good fight from Julia at least
return is a mess still it seems, even Dushevina is serve GOAT against Julia here and there, but well, she wont it and Dushevina was top 50 before so definitely not one of those random ITF girls although the match wasn´t great for sure.
Hope she gets more confident with a few wins here , Oprandi has to be beatable as well!

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

I think her current return problem is partly mental. When she had to at 5-4* in the final set, she all of a sudden was able to boss it like it was nothing.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Not a scoreline that give you confidence but at least a win

Andrea Petkovic - Sara Errani - Jarka Gajdosova - Alizé Cornet

Playing mixed doubles with Nestor. I can't believe this.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Happy Julia into AO R2 !

To be honest Julia played horrible for most part of match, especially in 2nd set. But she fought hard and won the important points. You could see she completely lacks confidence right now. No comment about her backhand. Julia`s backhand must be the worst in Top 100, absolutely disastrous UEs. I have no words. The Julia`s backhand vs Dushevina`s forehand rallies were laughable. Thank God Julia still has her serve and forehand. lol I really liked Julia`s honest words about the weak match, the critical words about her performance. Julia is so much better than Oprandi - but sadly out of form. Like Julia said if she doesn`t improve significantly she will crash out in R2.

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: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

R3. Pretty straightforward. Someone should gif that slice backhand down the line winner to preserve it for eternity.
