Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

It seems not be so serious, according the talks on the German threads it was obviously just some problems with windy weather and dust grains.

Julia will play the 5th and last game after 11.00 h on Hisense court.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Sweet win over Zheng, Julia !

Great fight to come back from 3-5 in 3rd set to win 7-5. Mentally very strong. Julia is a really inconsistent player, as we have seen in this match again. And IMO it will never change. She plays such a high-risk game. Aus Open is a big success for Julia already. Her 2nd time in R4 of a Grand Slam. And both times at Aus Open. Julia said in the interview Aus Open is her favourite tournament. Zero expectations for next match vs Li.

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

Europeans, what time do you think they will start? I don't wanna wake up too early, but I don't want to miss the whole match either

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

I think that's too early. Legends doubles start not before 2:30- how much should that last? An hour? I never watch those so I have no idea. Say they finish at 4, Almagro and Tipsarevic aren't ballbashers so it must be 3 hours at least.

Yeah, it's probably too early but I just want to make sure I won't miss anything.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

I don't think it will start before 07:30. Tipsarevic always takes his time, 3h 51min in R2, 3h 29min in R3. Even beating Hewitt in straight sets took him 3 hours.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Another big opportunity wasted, Li absolutely was beatable in this match.

Still can`t get over this tiebreak as a whole.
At 5-3 she missed an easy forehand, at 6-6 the forehand Dtl was just some millis out.
And how could she miss these opportunities on set point in such an important match ?
Very unlucky and stupid at the same time. That must be karma.

Joke aside, there is no better way to build up your opponent like Julia did and you can`t recover from such a desaster.
It was clearly over then. Pity.

This wasted setpoint.. I literally screamed in despair. This was just cruel. And yeah, it would have taken something special to recover from that. God, if she had converted that one ball she really would have had a shot at winning this match. Pretty sure about that. Well, it wasn't meant to be. Still, it was a great tournament for her.

Of course, it`s was a good tournament.
Not to be too critical with her, but still.

Some things you can prove and learn only in these moments of a big tournament against these Top players.
Sad but true, it was makeable and she missed it once again.

Re: Julia's Oceanic Swing 2013

Ugh, didn't see the match but see that Julia wasted tons of opportunities again it was indeed a good tournament but when is good going to become "great" or considerably greater than the last slam ? I wish she took that other level though, it's still and always the same average routine, when exactly will it break ? -- now I expect her to do the same in RG (3rd or 4th round).

Even Errani made a GS F (QF, SF etc.) an there's nothing in that Julia can not do and this match was pretty winnable (already considering that it was Li), so it's another wasted chance.

It's really time that many of the German girls stop sufficing themselves with mediocrity, the average, just what was needed to do to get the pay [...] and start searching for excellence also like certain of their predecessors once did in their time. There's lots of potential just consistently wasted.

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.
