Why do you appreciate Julia?

Well, we're all waiting for her to come back soon. So let's talk about her and what we like in her.
I appreciate her a lot as a player and a person.
I first saw her play during Wimbledon 2005 against Mary Pierce, my fav player, in the first round, and she impressed me so much! She has a game that looks a lot like Mary's, with such powerful shots from the baseline. And like Mary, with the years, she has improved a lot, adding more stuff to her game, like dropshots (see the hantuchova match in USO 2007) or like she goes to the net more and more, though she is not totally at ease yet there.
I like her forehand shots, which are among the best ones in women's tennis for me. And her backhand, I saw her practicing it a lot last year, in Luxembourg and Zurich, and she can really make a difference with it (see the match vs Serena in Stuttgart). To me, she is at least a top ten player in the coming years.
And I also like her out of the court, she is really nice girl and smiles a lot.
The only little thing that annoys me sometimes (sorry Julia!) is her attitude on court: she is not positive, even when she does good. I'd like some more smiles!!!

And you, what do you think? Why do you like her? How far do you think she can go.

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Re: Why do you appreciate Julia?

she really has the game for the top 10. if she stays injury free she should go very far in the rankings.
and as a person she's really nice. I met her 5 days I think. We watched together some matches and talked a lot.

Yes, I know what you mean now. You like the fact that she does not seem to be affected by what is around her when she in oncourt, she always has the same kind of attitude, is that it? That's true, she has this ability.

Re: Why do you appreciate Julia?

Stefi and others

i first heard of Julia when she beat Kimmy which proved to be her last match but still i hadn't seen her play..

then i finally watched her play in Wimbly against kuzi and really liked her game..i was really sad she lost that match..
but then i started to follow her match a lot..and hen i really became a big fan
she is my no.3 fave at this time

i agree that i sometimes don't really like her attitude on court..
like in the USO 07 4R she had 1000000000000 chances to win the 2nd set but couldn't..i mean it looked like she was leat bothered..
i just want her to be positive and show a little bit more emotion..
but i will always be a fan of her no matter what..and i just love her

KIM CLIJSTERS & JELENA JANKOVIC
PETRA KVITOVA..MARIA SHARAPOVA
