Articles about Julia

Here is an interview given by Julia like a week ago and published yesterday. If someone who speaks Russian could translate, even roughly, what she says, that'd be great.

Re: Articles about Julia

Here is the translation, thanks to a friend of mine, TK!

Player number2 in Ukrainian ratings told the reporter about the real reasons of her absence in national team.

The Ukrainian, one of the most perspective WTA players up to date, had played her only official match this year and disappeared. The gossip had begun to spread about her unwilling to play for the national team and her plans to change her citizenship. But without Julia our team can hardly pass Italy and reach the unbelievable - the World Group. Actually, the 34th world tennis player has no practice at all healing yet another injury. The conseaquences of her falling from a bicycle which happened to Julia even before AO turned to be more serious than it was expected. It seems that 24 years old Vakulenko is haunted by a curse of injuries - no Ukrainian tennis player had ever had such a number of them!

The hand is still immobilized, for about one week and a half, sais Julia. I have to take X-ray, if the bone is healed, i will be able to train. If not, i'll probably will have to have a surgery.

/the reporter/ How it turned out that an injury had in the end of the last year had not been healed till today?
/Juila/ When i was preparing for AO, the official tournament medic was not be able to find that i broke the bone. He said that it's not dangerous. But it was painful for me to play, i had to change my raquet for a lighter one. That playing only made the injury worse. Than i had a painkiller shot before the match, and it turned out that that painkiller is bad for bones. And i didn't think that i actually broke my hand. I got used to pain and even trained after AO but an X-ray had showed it was worse than I had thought.

/the reporter/ The injuries have always prevent you to reach the higher, deserved, places. How do you take it?
/Julia/ I'm surprised by such a misfourtune myself. It's not an easy thing to think about, I planed to compete for Top Ten in ratings this season. But the main thing is that I have my family and friends by my side - with them all the difficulties are much easier to live through.

/the reporter/ In April Ukrainian team will have an important match vs Italy in FedCup. Will you debute in the team?
/Julia/ Let's see what will be with my hand, will I be able to play at all by that time. If I will have to have a surgery, I'll probably miss about six month. And that's always like that - when I need to play for the national team, I'm recovering from another injury...

/the reporter/ At our tennis federation we had the word about your plans to change the citizenship...
/Julia/ Not at all. I live in many countries but I have Ukrainian citizenship and I do not plan to change it!

/the reporter/ Will you visit Ukraine this year?
/Julia/ I don't know about what schedule will I have. I usually visit Ukraine to see my grandfather. But now I'd like to have him visiting me here. Maybe during RG or Wimbledon.

/the reporter/ Now you have more spare time, how do you spend it? Not only shopping in parisian boutiques?
/Julia/ [laughs] Yeah, I always have time for that! I have all I need but if someting new appears in the shops, the shoes or purses, I cannot refuse myself sometimes. And I like to choose presents for my friends. One of my close friends is Mary Pierce and a couple of days ago I presented her a nice ring. Mary always like my presents. But the most of my time goes to fitness and reading. And the main thing, now I can spend more time with my friends, whom I haven't seen for a long time because of my busy schedule.

She has to wait for the results of a MRI, so she does not know yet.
