Yeah, Julia's draw sucks, she can beat Tamira but there's almost no chance she defeats Victoria. Julia would have had a better chance of defeating Victoria on grass with her serve but on hard it's really difficult.

H2h against Paszek is 2-0!
Could be an interesting 1st round but Paszek´s season has been pretty awful yet, she played two great grass tournament but that´s it, last week she lost to Cornet on grass and now she hopefully loses to Julia!
Its kind simple, Julia has to serve well herself and has to attack the weaker serves of the Austrian, I hope she can win it.

No chance then against Azarenka, she is just one of those who can expose Julia´s weaknesses quite good + one of the best returners on the tour so Julia´s first serve is also not that effective against her.
But well, Azarenka had a long week in London as well, wouldnt be the first time that she withdraws or retires in a match :angel:

well, happy that I couldn´t watch it!
Not a big surprise, shows again IMO that Julia´s biggest problem is her head often.
Last week she has one of the biggest highlights of her career, where she gave 110% and one of her biggest win ever...but that means obviously that she isn´t able to be ready for a "normal" tournament in the following weak, not surprised about the comments here, Paszek wasn´t one who gave her many UEs and Julia is just bad when she in her "special" mood.
Hope she can show some better results before NY again but I just can´t see any improvement in her game/head lately,disappointing!

Dispeker
Aug 7th, 2012, 10:42 PM
well, happy that I couldn´t watch it!

After reading what happened today I have to agree. Ok, she mentioned earlier this year that she always got problems with the transition to new surfaces. But this loss can't be excused by that, of course. It had probably more to do with attitude (once again). If she continues with these kind of performances she will never get rid of her "surprise-bag"-image. Is it this what she really wants? I'm seriously asking this question. Maybe she is already satisfied with being a top 30 player, Idk. I hope I'm wrong and actually I do believe that she is hungry for more (she's practicing like maniac after all) but then she got to change something.. Playing well only at the big events surely isn't enough.

I just saw her last service game. Reading the comments the rest of the match was equally disappointing.

And a very nice shake hands at the net.
Being kind with the opponent is very honest but that was a little bit too nice for just having lost a first round match of an important tournament in pathetic fashion.

The win against Radwanska obviously did not boost her game and Julia still can show her best just randomly once in a blue moon or when she is playing for her country. That tells a lot.
We know her empty phrases on losses like that and she most likely won`t spare them us this time once again.

As much as she enjoys being a tennis pro she is hardly able to cope with the (mental) demands of this sport that she faces daily in competition on the court.
Her exciting life and the fact that she has a new chance at the tournament next week is an ambiguous matter in this context.
It seemingly also distracts her of the main problems and just leads her to carry on with the daily grind.
Julia might be pretty satisfied overall with her situation and feel different about it. There is actually nothing to say against.
But she seems to be on her best way from being an underperforming and very promising player to a truely average player with random occasional success.
In the after season there is some time to think about it all.

However, right now it`s "Montreal, here I`ve been", "wow, 30000 followers on twitter" and on to the next tournament.

Saw a little bit at the end. Only plus was that she looked great in that outfit.

The tennis was pretty bad. I'm not sure I've seen anyone ever return Paszek's serve so poorly. It's not a strong serve you know? And so many errors whenever she tried to rally.

I don't think Julia can have consistent results unless she makes her serve consistently good. I hope that one day she reaches a point of reliability with at least this one shot. If she makes just this single shot dependable on a day to day basis it will help enormously and will make it possible for her to survive days when her return of serve or forehand are off.

Movement today was pretty bad as well. Maybe she wasn't feeling 100% or something. I still think her fitness levels could be higher, that would help as well.

Dispeker
Aug 8th, 2012, 11:38 AM
Julia indeed blamed her loss on the transition from grass to hardcourt:

„Ich habe mich nach der langen Rasen-Saison noch nicht sofort auf dem Hartplatz wohlgefühlt“ sagte Julia nach dem Match, „und schon hat man verloren, aber das wird sich mit jedem Trainingtag und jedem Match schnell ändern und dann ist mein Touch auch wieder voll da.“

"After a long grass-season I don't feel comfortable on hardcourt yet. But this is going to change fast with each day of practise and each match."

"After a long grass-season I don't feel comfortable on hardcourt yet. But this is going to change fast with each day of practise and each match."

Yeah, that's how it looked like, her timing was worse than usual. I thought maybe Paszek (or herself) is to blame, but maybe it's simply a much faster court.

Yes, the transition is difficult probably but let's be honest, Julia should know how to get through these matches. Victoria, Sharapova and else played more matches than her on grass and I would bet everything that they're going to get through their first round matches (even playing with not so good level) and make it far in Montréal.

Julia's timing was off but at the same time she was attempting for some ridiculous shots. :lol: I don't know but if your timing is off, you try to rally and keep the ball into play to find some kind of rhythm something Julia was obviously unwilling to do whole of the match.

Anyways, I hope her next tournament will be better -- she'd have lost to Victoria anyways but it'd have been cool if she had won that match and also for the pictures -- she was really a lovely and sweet in her new outfit. :hearts:

The chance that Julia in her current form would beat anyone left in the draw is close to zero unfortunately. So I don't think it is really a missed opportunity for her. She obviously needs more time to find her rhythm again. But she will find it in the end and reach the semis at the US Open. :yeah:

Had a nap and managed to watch some of it. Quite up and down, but Shahar really doesn't play well against Julia. The only chance she had to get ahead in the second set she blew through errors and double faults. It really seems to be a good match up for Julia. Now the draw is opening. Hopefully she can do something good with it.

The problem is that even when she had been looking comfortable on the court today, you never know how she feels on it the next day.
But it`s time for a good result on the tour again.
Many players are out of shape, looking at the results of Toronto.
Kvitova might be tired and must get past Mona first.
The draw looks tailor-made. So it`s a really good opportunity to go a little deeper here.

Her draw is ok at least, CSN on hard is always beatable and Pavly had some better results again lately but still was never really impressive this year + h2h 2-0 for Jula, after that Woz, so the draw is open obviously BUT Julia can lose to anyone anyway, we´ll just have to wait and see, chances are there at least :lol:

Really a desaster. But you have to be honest. Nothing has really improved since Stuttgart/ Madrid last year. Since then she made 4 times the 4th round of a tournament (where her opponent retired once and Oprandi was injured). What she's good for at the moment are 1-2 good tourneys a year and random wins like against Radwanska.

I mean losing to in from Pavly isn´t a shame in general but 1) pavly isnt in good shape herself 2) that scoreline is just pathetic!
So we had 26 16 against Paszek and 36 06 against Pavly, lucky to meet Peer in between, I guess :tape:

well, not much more to add, her results this season aren´t satisfying at all, here and there she has good results where she shows that she actually can be a dangerous player but many bad defeats as well.

That didn't go very well. Tennis is a bit like that. If something is not working properly in your game or mentality the scorelines against you can be pretty horrific because you can't win any key points and it becomes a blowout. Pavs is just as prone to have the same thing happen to her, mind you.

Nah I don't think the win against Radwanska is/was random, Radwanska is due to lost to any good ball-striker (Mona should have defeated her in Montréal), thing is, she often escapes them with her fluky cake-draws in each and every tournament --

I mean, Julia IMO is expected to beat any version of Radwanska at her best or not just like any good ball-striker is expected to, probably the win took bigger significance because of hte Olympics and also because of their history.

Julia really should have skipped Montreal. Made absolutely no sense to play there directly after London Olympics. Julia should have taken the week off. And stay a few more days in London and enjoy the special atmosphere. Really stupid to rush to Montreal. Julia`s mind was obviously still in London.

And about Cincy. At least Julia won a match. A thing that worries me is her serve. In R1 vs Peer her 1st Serve % was only 38%. That`s horrible. In R2 her 1st Serve % was 43% - still quite lousy. And Julia was broken 6 times in 8 service games! Pavlyuchenkova seems in good form in Cincy, but losing 3-6 0-6 is embarrassing. I bet Julia`s footwork/movement was a mess.

Julia`s serve is very important for her game. The key to beat Aga at Olympics was her very strong serve that day. Sadly Julia is extremely inconsistent. She can lose to anyone anytime when she has an off-day. Let`s hope Julia improves her consistency. We should not have too high expectations with Julia.

And stay a few more days in London and enjoy the special atmosphere. Really stupid to rush to Montreal. Julia`s mind was obviously still in London.

And about Cincy. At least Julia won a match. A thing that worries me is her serve. In R1 vs Peer her 1st Serve % was only 38%. That`s horrible. In R2 her 1st Serve % was 43% - still quite lousy. And Julia was broken 6 times in 8 service games! Pavlyuchenkova seems in good form in Cincy, but losing 3-6 0-6 is embarrassing. I bet Julia`s footwork/movement was a mess.

Julia`s serve is very important for her game. The key to beat Aga at Olympics was her very strong serve that day. Sadly Julia is extremely inconsistent. She can lose to anyone anytime when she has an off-day. Let`s hope Julia improves her consistency. We should not have too high expectations with Julia.

I just want her to win the French Open :shrug:

Julia is posting a pic with herself and her katjes bag on twitter but doesn`t loose any word about her match against Nastja.
Is she running out of words or first signs of changing the order of priorities in her career ?
It seems that she has not asked for a WC at Dallas.
Might be the best to prepare herself calmly for the US Open.

Goerges looks like having problems recently with her back. Is she doing some rehabilitation?

Hm, she often had back problems in the past (USO 2011 for example) but I didn't know that it caused her problems recently again. Where did you get this information, did you see her play lately?
