Re: Julia's US Open Series 2013

There's very little money in Mixed doubles. Making the final (4 wins) earns you about as much as you get for just participating in R1 in singles.

Better than nothing. So she can upgrade her hotel at least

But seriosly, a little more money for mixed would be reasonable.

Re: Julia's US Open Series 2013

Nobody really cares about doubles, let alone mixed. I'm guessing that in terms of revenue they are already way overpaid.

Re: Julia's US Open Series 2013

Julia earned nearly 500.000 Dollar in a horrible season like 2013, she's at a point in her carreer, where money doesn't matter anymore, she earned nearly 3 Mio Dollar in prize money alone, now it's all about success.

Playing doubles, improving her volleying, touch shots, and reflexes can never hurt. Julia is doing the right thing by trying to develop and expand her game.

Re: Julia's US Open Series 2013

McHale is slumping big time, so Julia should beat her for sure.

Traveling up and down the Rankings with
Sabine Lisicki

GGHOF: Errani(12), Kvitova(13), Bouchard(14), Muguruza(15) /S.Williams DQ for life
2016 Race: Azarenka(F), Bencic, Zheng(1R),Allertova(1R), Azarenka, Stephens, Strycova, Bouchard(1R), Bertens(1R), CSN
