On her homepage Julia says she will travel to Dubai on 11th of December with the whole team for practicing.
Afterwards she will play at Auckland, Sidney and of course at Melbourne.

I generally can only make time to watch some of it live, but I always follow as much as I can on tv. E.g. I have the tv on in the background. I usually travel around this time of year and I'm often up north in Paihia during the early part of the year.

I look young and people tend to think I'm a teenager (a girl asked me the other day whether I had finished high school yet) but I'm actually in my twenties and have a degree so being a ball boy isn't for me. Although I noticed in the USO series there seemed to be some older ball people. I wonder why?

I always go to watch the qualifying. It's on the weekend which is fairly convenient for me. At this time the top players are usually also practising. Last year I saw Julia practise with Carla Suarez Navarro, Vesnina with Safina, Anna Chak, Shahar. In the last few years I have also gone on one other day. In 2009 it was quarterfinals day, where I watched Vesnina beat Wozniacki, Dementieva beat Gallovits, some other matches as well that don't pop into my head immediately. In 2010 I watched the finals live, where Yanina beat Flavia. Last year I was only able to get to the qualifying and watched the rest on tv.

I'm not much of a camera person, I like to travel light, I've never taken pics or videos of players, and (obviously) I've never uploaded my own pics or videos, but just maybe I'll try to do it this year. If I do anything it will most likely be videos, which require a little less attention once the camera is set up, and probably during the qualies weekend, since I have a lot more freedom to move around at that time, and I'm also more likely to have space to set up a tripod during that time. I like to watch the tennis with my own eyes so I don't want to have to look through a viewfinder, so having a camera set up in position and only having to start and stop recordings sounds the most feasible.

Naturally, reports from the qualies weekend will be posted by me somewhere in TF. If I attend another day I'll also report on those matches.

Of course, she's able to win it. But this is just as likely to happen as an early-round loss. She is still a surprise bag and I doubt that this will change in the near future. :shrug:

The German news magazine Der Spiegel predicts Julia will make it big next year – whatever that means :) (Page 145 of the print edition, No. 52).

Unlike BILD, „der Spiegel“ has a good reputation for solid investigative journalism. If this magazine dares to make such a claim, it must have credible sources – maybe Sascha told them how many umpires he already bribed, I don't know.

Anyway, I for one have already chilled the champagne. :banana:

With virtually nothing to defend until April, Julia actually has a chance now to "right the ship"... We're all discouraged by the loss to Aga, but Julia's had a few bad losses in the past (on big and small occasions) and she's always bounced back pretty well. (Serena and Jankovic sure, but Coco Vandeweghe, Rodina and Xinyun Han?!)

They key is to get fully healthy and fit as she says constantly. I think the most concerning thing is that we couldn't see the MOTIVATION in that match yesterday, the FIGHT that we are used to seeing more of. It's like she had no knowledge of the Aga/Bethanie match - not one drop shot was attempted, nothing to mix anything up at all.

A few good wins at Doha or Dubai and she can build her point total before the Stuttgart and Madrid points come off in April. In reality just a few rounds at Miami or Indian Wells would bounce her up the rankings a bit more.

So good luck Julia - I think she can recover from this one loss. And with her pattern maybe we'll see the fourth round in all grand slams this year?!

I have a bad feeling that this marathon (Paris, Doha, Dubai, Indian Wells, Miami, Charleston, Stuttgart, Madrid, Rome, RG) won't end well. No time for rest! :mad:

During the US spring she should quite easily reach a combo 3rd round+3rd round. Let's say it's a minimum for her :)
Well it`s her job and she is a workaholic.
But yes, her way of playing is in many ways strength-sapping. And she will be pretty tired now after Dubai.
She didn`t even twitter something till now.:D
Julia has got two weeks now till IW and she should use the time mainly for recovering.
I guess she will skip some tournaments when she will be successful at the upcoming events like every other player does.

Nah, in Madrid, Wimbledon and USO. And she's getting a second Porsche :lol: Of course she will qualify for the Olympics. She's just starting now. But some easy draws might ruin her plans :lol: But there's no chance for an easy draw in the upcoming events, so everything's fine.

Since you gave me permission I took the liberty of proofreading your post. I will tend to do this without mentioning it further when I quote you.

Apparently it might be tougher for Julia to qualify for the Olympics than for some of the other German girls. The slam semifinal helps Kerber and Lisicki quite a bit, and Julia is yet to do that well in a slam. However if Petkovic is still injured and unable to play, then Julia's chances of qualifying for the Olympics go up a lot. Hopefully Petkovic is fit and Julia manages to qualify by herself.

I still think it's silly for any country to add additional qualifying criteria, as Germany has done.

In NZ there is a lot of doubt over whether the NZ Olympic committee will allow Erakovic to go. They have ridiculous criteria- as you can see in this article here: http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/tennis/6478734/Marina-Erakovic-has-Olympics-firmly-in-sights

The NZOC only wants to let her go if she gets in the top 16 :help:. They have no idea of the scope and size of the game of tennis, and are comparing it to sports like swimming, cycling, shooting, rowing, athletics. Marina is doing well in a very big sport and is every bit as deserving of going to the Olympics as the other NZ athletes going. We aren't a big tennis nation like Germany. We should send anyone we're allowed to. In Germany it's different, they have a lot of choices, so they can pick and choose.

I can`t imagine that Julia will not withdraw a tournament when she went deep at the previous or when she is tired at some point.
Julia and her team want to make sure that she can play the next week when she should go out early at a tournament.
When she was a consistent Top Ten player she probably would plan in a different way.
And there`s nothing unusual with that - compared to the most other players she plays a lot more events.

Everything depends on her results in previous tournaments.
She's on the entry list just as a precaution (or that's what I think).
