I don't think arantxa was alluding to just the handshake because handshake went by so fast and julia did give a sincere smile and handshake which is more than most players give. just look at julia's match with aravane, she is very gracious at the end. there were other moments today when julia could have acted more mature but just put yourself in julia's shoes...losing a match that you feel you should definitely win and on top of that, 1000 dutch fans jeering at your winners and cheering your UE

The way i saw it was Julia thought twice about NOT shaking Arantxa's hand once she heard the crowd reaction at her shaking the umpire's hand first. It's just not the done thing to shake the umpire first, and all the players know that. Plus, that was a fairly "interesting" smile she flashed her.

the gif is speeded up too much and presents a picture where some people might think that goerges went to the umpire first and then rus as sometimes happens. seeing it in real time, you could see that rus was at the net already for the handshake when goerges got there and goerges blanked her. you also can't see how goerges only reacts and shakes hands after the fans start booing, etc.
i neither like nor dislike either player, particularly, but there can be no doubt for people who saw it that goerges acted in a less than gracious manner.

it doesn't even matter if you're right handed or not, to shake hands with your right hand is usual
though the whole situation looks dubious, her smile at Rus looks rather like a "oh, I'm "sorry" I forgot you at the net, take want you got and be happy you irrelevant bitch" sort of smile

Arantxa's a talented player, but she needs to keep her mouth shut. She should have told her fans to keep quiet every time Julia hit a bad shot. As someone above me said, who's she to be saying anything in the first place? Let her get to at least the semis, then she can talk.. Until then, deal with it. I bet if it was the other way around, she'd have done the exact same thing.

OMG, that GIF is hilarious....It is very obvious what is going on there..."Mean Girls" all over again. That was a purposeful and deliberate decision to go to the umpire first, leaving Rus hanging at the net. This type of behavior is so typical from "mean girls"....It is very clear in that GIF that Julia is being a bitch. Then, she turns and puts on a fake ass smile and congratulates Aranxta...That was the fakest smile and handshake I have ever seen...Clearly, Julia was bitter as hell that she lost...But why blame Aranxta? It wasn't her fault that Julia choked the first set and found herself in that position (in the fading light) to begin with. She was pissed at the umpire for not calling the match, yet she shook his hand first? Really? That makes no sense because she was pissed at him for not calling the match, yet she immediately went to him first to shake hands? I don't think so. That is just shady. I am sure she could have given two shits about shaking either the umpire or Aranxta's hand at the end, but she wanted to throw some bitchy shade at Aranxta, so she snubbed her momentarily with her bitter bitchiness. And someone said she mistook the umpire for Aranxta which is why she shook his hand first? :lol: Why would you look upward to shake your opponent's hand when they are on ground level with you? That rationale makes no sense. Georges is a sore loser and this result makes her loss even sweeter. Grow the fuck up, bitch and act your age. You got ouplayed by a girl who basically peaks at RG every year :haha: This result actually doesn't surprise me considering what shit tennis Georges has played most of the year and how she can't seem to ever make it past the 3R of a slam. Georges is way over hyped and it's not surprising that Kerber is leaps and bounds better than her now. Georges is simply irrelevant. Glad that Aranxta took advantage of these irrelevant hacks and made it through to the R16:wavey:

Good handshake or not, it doesn't matter that much. Don't think there's so much wrong with it but it seems more normal for Goerges to shake Rus's hand first, but whatever. I like all the German girls but Goerges. Rus is very lucky to go so far, i had expected her to lose this one but maybe i was slightly influenced by the hype as well, in the end Goerges is even worse than i thought she was.

Julia usually is very kind at the net independently whether she lost a match or won it and the way she did.
It seems to be pretty clear what happened to her in this match.
She was not happy about her performance and the course of the match overall.
Towards the end of it all circumstances turned against her.
I`m not sure whether she was seriously handicaped by her lenses in the twilight.
However, after she faked an injury to get this match stopped, the crowd as it was, was even more on fire and her nerves were raw in the end.
Imo, at the latest with some distance Julia will get aware about it and regret her behaviour.
It`s up to everybody calling her a bitch for that but I think that leads to far.
But having a party about it and involving Aranxta, by quoting her wrong, is even ridiculous.

I'm not the one hyping her and if you mean about her play, fine. If you mean her looks, that's not an issue. No one can argue her beauty. It's a part of it with any half-decent looking player that has a chance to be good. I disagree with the last part of your statement.

Definately. Gorges first whined about the light for 5 minutes, while Wozniacki and Kanepi were still playing and Rus has no problems either. Then, the next game, she whined again (even though you can only suspend play at even games right?) and then called in a medical time-out. I thought that would only be bad for herself, unless Arantxa would get out of her play. But Rus is very composed and stable, so I thought she only screwed herself.

I'm guessing you're german and that's it. Well, I'm not really guessing :P
Julia's non-verbal communication was completely obvious. She felt that she should win easily against Rus, apparently. Which I can understand, because Julia has more power in her shots (I wonder why, because Rus seems to have more muscles) and RUs didnt have any decent performance so far, this year.
Nevertheless she was a bad sport. I can understand she didn't like the dutch audience, but what can Rus do about that? As someone else said: she's a total angel on court. But Julia basically dissed Rus after the game and went on showing her fist towards Rus after every point in the 2nd set, even if it was just a bad miss by Rus.

Then in the end she probably really had problems with the light. So, ask the umpire if play can be suspended. He says no, shut up and play, be professional. But no, she wastes minutes and then all of a sudden needed help for her ankle. It was as obvious as it can get, only aim was to delay and suspend the game. Or otherwise try to screw Rus' flow.

I'm sorry, but she was totally arrogant and a bad sport. And I thought she was super cute etc before, I definately did not 'hate' her before this game.

We are not under her skin so I don`t know what really was in her mind and therefore it`s all about speculation.
I follow her for some years and I suppose that she handled like that because she was just overwhelmed by the whole situation.
She tends to be easily distracted on the court and in this match the surroundings definitely were extraordinairy.
Being anxious to fail at that big opportunity, the loudly cheering crowd against her. (I guess there was a big number of Dutch fans, the same who cheered for Sijsling at the ATP matches)
All that escalated and came together in the end.
This is not meant for an excuse, justification or anything, it`s just the way I would describe what happened.

I dont know, was the crowd that bad? I have been at Davis Cup matches and its always very enthusiastic, but they usually respect the opponents. This time, I heard them whistling etc in the 3rd set, but it was clear why they did that. I dont know when it started though.

But anyway, I think as a player you should work on ignoring that. It happens a lot during football, and they continue playing ;)
In tennis its usually silent when players serve and play. I didnt actually hear the umpire asking for silence a lot, which happens during Rotterdam ATP tournament. It's a fact of life that you sometimes play the fan's favourite. Suck it up and keep your concentration. With her looks, I bet she's more often than not going to be the fan's favourite. Well, if she doesn't get herself a reputation, that is.

We are not under her skin so I don`t know what really was in her mind and therefore it`s all about speculation.
I follow her for some years and I suppose that she handled like that because she was just overwhelmed by the whole situation.
She tends to be easily distracted on the court and in this match the surroundings definitely were extraordinairy.
Being anxious to fail at that big opportunity, the loudly cheering crowd against her. (I guess there was a big number of Dutch fans, the same who cheered for Sijsling at the ATP matches)
All that escalated and came together in the end.
This is not meant for an excuse, justification or anything, it`s just the way I would describe what happened.Fair enough. I am not a big Goerges fan in the first place because i don't like hypes and big hitters (missers?) very much. In the end Goerges can have a bad day of course where she doesn't behave as she should, other players including my favs have those days as well. Things like these happen, time to move on.

Yep.

TF drama morons just wanna see whatever they wanna see, not what has actually happened.
I mean you could accuse 99% of players in bitchiness but Julia? Oh...

Definately. Gorges first whined about the light for 5 minutes, while Wozniacki and Kanepi were still playing and Rus has no problems either. Then, the next game, she whined again (even though you can only suspend play at even games right?) and then called in a medical time-out. I thought that would only be bad for herself, unless Arantxa would get out of her play. But Rus is very composed and stable, so I thought she only screwed herself.

These new accounts :unsure:

I'm guessing you're german and that's it. Well, I'm not really guessing :P
Julia's non-verbal communication was completely obvious. She felt that she should win easily against Rus, apparently. Which I can understand, because Julia has more power in her shots (I wonder why, because Rus seems to have more muscles) and RUs didnt have any decent performance so far, this year.
Nevertheless she was a bad sport. I can understand she didn't like the dutch audience, but what can Rus do about that? As someone else said: she's a total angel on court. But Julia basically dissed Rus after the game and went on showing her fist towards Rus after every point in the 2nd set, even if it was just a bad miss by Rus.

Then in the end she probably really had problems with the light. So, ask the umpire if play can be suspended. He says no, shut up and play, be professional. But no, she wastes minutes and then all of a sudden needed help for her ankle. It was as obvious as it can get, only aim was to delay and suspend the game. Or otherwise try to screw Rus' flow.

I'm sorry, but she was totally arrogant and a bad sport. And I thought she was super cute etc before, I definately did not 'hate' her before this game.

Rus could have told the Dutch fans to knock it off, like motioning to calm down or stay quiet during points. And if you hate Julia or don't think she's super-cute because of one incident(her first, I might add), then that's a narrow-minded way of thinking.

But at the moment I do not expect so much, so it stays at hoping for now; I dont think she'll be better then top50. Somehow she misses some power. Maybe she should gain some weight or so, because she seems to have everything to do it: she's tall, she's got muscles, she's got mental strength and seems to have all the strokes to some extent. Just it looked like she got blown away by Julia's forehand. And Julia doesnt seem to me to be super strong or so.

@Martao, welcome. You realize that Rus has been very lucky, maybe not today but with her previous match? Top 50 seems to me too high already, there are players there that are definitely better than Rus. I think Kraijcek has the talent to get there if she gets her stuff together.

The previous match, how was that so lucky? I only saw the summary, but it seemed like she was better then Razzano. I guess she was lucky to not face Serena, cause she wouldnt stand a chance. But alright. Today she was lucky that Gorges couldnt keep herself. I know that when I play myself, the hardest matches are the ones that you feel you should win, but are in fact somewhat close.

I dont know about Krajicek. I dont know her game that well. Rus seems to have more potential physically. But ok, maybe I'm just mislead by her smile :P

I was puzzled about the handshake cos I thought if anything, it makes more sense to direct it at the umpire rather than Rus, who did nothing except roll her eyes when told about the MTO.

Jesus, what a fucking storm in a teacup. Julia was a bit pissed off (more at the situation and the umpire than with Aranxta was my impression), and wanted to get off court as quickly as possible. Unless somebody finds a way to tap into Julia's brain there's no way of knowing whether her initial "snub" was intentional or not. In either case it was not her finest hour, but hardly the war crime people are making it out to be.

You know "one swallow doesn't make a sommer" or in terms of Julia you can change it and say one sommer in 2011 doesn't make you a great player.;) So big congrats to Rus and go on with the hard work to Julia.

What are you talking about? It wasnt one meaningless accident. Maybe the handshaking issue is minor, because she did revert to Rus after her initial ignoring. But that wasnt the reason at all, it was the pathetic behaviour during the whole match and especially the 3rd set. As I said before, I watched the match myself, so its not at all this thread that did.

ANd yes, Arantxa has not been succesful and she has not been in such situations. But imho, thats all the more reason to be annoyed and show it. But allthough she had disappointing results and doesnt have the experience to handle such situation, she never did anything unsporting as far as I know. Not even in this game, where Julia gave her extra reasons. You may be right that it will changes in the future, who knows, but until proven guilty: Rus exhibits impeccable behavior on court. Also if you see an interview with her: she has no attitude at all. (so far)

I am also happy to be able to see Rus playing (at least) once more,
and the stupidity of some funny posts adds to the fun.

So may I suggest that you really should make a petition to the WTA
to get this ultimate bitchy bitch Goerges severely punished.

I think a 12 months penalty should be enough:
Goerges matches have to be scheduled only at night without daylight
or floodlights.

Yeah, take that, bitch.

Moreover for that mean big grinning at your opponent during handshake
there should be another 12 months penalty after that:
Every Goerges floodlight match gets only half of the lights on.

After this unbelievable bitchy bitch incident:

That's the only possible way to save woman's tennis !!!!!!

Well even if you look at the whole match I don't think Julia did anything to warrant anthing more than mild disapproval. She was upset at the match being continued in bad light (justifiably: the organizers consistently put scheduling interests above those of players when it comes to this), took an injury time out (which everybody just assumes was gamesmanship, without any actual evidence to support that), and was a bit surly at the end due to being upset with the whole situation.

As to the ballkids, I didn't see that, but actually most of the players are pretty disrespectful to the kids at times. Julia can be a bit moody, but she's not the evil villain so many people are making her out to be.

You're fooled by her beautiful eyes I guess. Being rude to ballkids is OK because others did it as well? I didnt see any of that too, but I suppose its not a lie.
Same naivity about the medical timeout: she didnt get any treatment, just redoing the taping of her ankle. I dont think that's a good idea for just a few games: it will need some time to get comfortable. Next to that it is too much coincidence after the darkness complaining and being on a bad streak in-game.

Didn't say it was okay to be rude to ballkids, on the contrary I think it's only right that players get called on it. But like you, I didn't see it, so don't think it has much point to bring it up on this thread. Based on the reactions of a lot of people to what I maintain were fairly minor behavioral infringements in this match, I'm inclined to be skeptical that she did anything all that terrible to the ballkids.

And it's fine for you to conclude that the ITO was gamesmanship, but it's not OK for me to suggest that she was justified in complaining about the light? The light WAS failing. Some players eyes are better than others, so it's not unusual for different players to be affected differently. Anyway, my point is not that the match should definitely have been stopped, but that she was within her rights to ask for it to happen. Plenty of players with exemplary records of sportsmanship have complained far more vehemently than she did under similar conditions.

Bottom line: fine if you want to criticize her behaviour, it could have been better for sure. But 20+ pages of posts on the results thread and 9 and counting here. You don't think that's a bit excessive for what she did?

Definitely wrong. There was a pro-Rus cheering from parts of the audience already during the 1st and 2nd set.

There should be a fixed time for suspension set before matches, instead of random decisions by supervisors. Keeping this out of player's minds. If they want to get through the matches they have to install lights. Anything else is just pathetic.

it wasn't just the odd handshake, it was görges' overall behaviour that was very disappointing. in fact i noticed it gets worse every time i see her. a worrisome development.

you know how they say - all them girls are bishes, and if they aren't, then they are just not pretty enough...

well, if "they" say that, "they" are utter morons.

If she was homely or obese, nobody would give a s***. This thread would only have 4 posts. PPL love cracking on a beautiful girl, guess that's human nature, exaggerating the faults of those who have what you'll never have.

Yeah, those evil people are only criticising her because they are jealous that she is soooo beautiful :awww:

julia also said to her coach: "gosh, she's sooo retarded!" when rus had the line umpire check one of her missed returns that was out by several inches. I think it was at 1-4 julia serving...

Hmm, to be honest I didn't know Julia had this sort of behaviour in her.:confused: Didn't see it coming at all. And I kinda liked her but this is sort of changing my opinion on her:sad:. This match was really poor form on her behalf.

First of all, she was constantly bitching about Rus to her camp which is shocking. Then she kept complaining about the light and then took a very dubious MTO, which was clearly intended to delay the match further in the hopes of carrying the match forward to the next day. And then she kept on beaming the come-on's at Rus' face, and kept deathstaring her. And to top it all off, that fail handshake. When I saw that, my heart sank tbh. I mean, it was just so weird :shrug:.

Have to say, appalling behaviour.

I don't like Goerges attitude at all! From all the German girls she's the one that I don't like...

It`s justified to critizise Julia`s behaviour in this match. No doubt about that.
But what you are doing here is just poor in every aspect.

You even don`t seem to notice that you are making a fool of yourself when you snipe and snitch on her especially without giving any source for what you`ve heard.:scratch:
Sorry, but you took the bun in this thread.

Have you seen the match? What the poster says is probably true.

Julia was annoyed when Rus had the umpire check the mark, she looked in the crowd (probably at her team), rolled her eyes, smiled sarcastically and said a few words. I don't know what she said, but I'm sure it was not something nice. btw it was shown on TV, not sure what "source" for this you need.

Anyway, her behaviour was digusting in the second half of the match. The arguing about the light, the fake MTO, the loud come-ons and clenched fist in direction of Rus to intimidate her, the handshake....
