Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Nice win, Julia !

6-3 6-2. Thank God she improved. Very focused performance. Oprandi has no weapons at all. It was a bit boring to watch. Julia could only beat herself. Some strong serves and forehands. The backhand longline slice winner at 6-3 3-0 was amazing. Highlight of match for me. Such a smart shot. Overall Julia played pretty well. Zheng in next match will be really tough. Stosur would have been much better. Julia must show a high level, hope her serve and forehand are on fire. Zheng will attack Julia`s weak backhand.

Good Luck

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Won her doubles with Stosur.

11:00 local on show court 3, would have preferred her on a bigger court..
4th match after 11:00 local on court 8 (I think that has TV as well) her stupid mixed doubles.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Not really impossible, JZ doesn't seem to be doing very well, actually. And Julia might be getting better

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

So damn happy and proud Now everything's possible. She will go into the 4th round without much pressure. Anf if she loses, I won't give a f.. either. She achieved already far more than I expected.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Wow I really thought she was done at 4-5* in the final set after her bad previous returning game, but she returned impressively and managed to break back, and then close it out like a boss.

Looks like she learned from last year eventually, Rittner will be proud!

Both German girls into R4!

Absolutely. After the Larsson match I feared the worst and now she's in the second week again. The Görges works in mysterious ways.

That's the thing, I don't want Julia satisfying with the minimum. It's really time she does something of note a major and making the QF in Australia is very very strong possibility here against her possible two next opponents in Li or Sorana.

Plexicushion suits her game well -- she's already made the 4R last year but I'm curious now to see if she can go further.

Anyways she's really turned her season around though as a habit she always does well in majors to suck at almost everything outside of them lol. So it was somewhat far expected that she would produce something here.

Genie - Victoria - Kristina.
