However, he made it sound like there was some deliberate throwing in the towel-attitude and I never saw that against Li.
To get the things right for Suckmila -

For my part it`s pretty clear what MK 27 actually wanted to tell in his post.
He was first of all annoyed by the result which is reasonable looking at the easily wasted chance that Julia had to win the first set and give this match a different outcome. Therefore he was talking about a throwing in a towell.

Your German answer was about something different.

You tried to analyze the match from your point of view and mention a "mental hole in which Julia was falling, but she was not throwing the match" as the main point for her loss also refering on your experience as a tennis player.

I think there is just a (not quite unintended) misunderstanding.
