Julia is in Azarenkas quarter and will face a qualifier in 1st round if I saw it correctly. Potential 2nd round match against Minella.

Well, to get to her beloved third round is quite easy

Definitely not. Reaching the 4th round is possible. Just do it Julia :drive:

The draw spirits at GS are on Julia`s side once again.

3rd round seems to be a mere formality. Reaching the 4th round is not impossible.

Nice first couple of rounds. :yeah: Should keep her R3 slam streak.
I'd really like to see a Julia-Sabine match in the third round.

A lot of good looking players in that section for sure. A bit of a shame for Julia and Sabine as fellow Germans that they are in the same section I suppose though.

1st round vs Kr. Pliskova!
Well, Julia should win that match, Pliskova is not totally useless but Julia has to reach 3rd round here, everything else would be disappointing.

Kon.
Aug 25th, 2012, 09:38 AM
Pliskova isn't the easiest qualifier but Julia playing decently shouldn't have problems getting the win.
I'm still a bit nervous though after her recent performances. :unsure:

I'm not overly surprised but this was a bad loss.
I hope it makes her realise she needs to change something. In her head mostly.

i wasnt expecting this shit :hysteric: :sobbing: she has to change something in her mind...doesnt she know there are mental coaches ? i think she needs one.

its not acceptable, after loosing the 1st set, tanking the 2nd hardly making a game :bigcry:

Bad loss but like I had said in the LS thread, Julia was NEVER in the US Open series (mentally, physically etc.) -- IDK but this seems like a natural consequence of her series. She didn't have any kind of dynamic and most of her matches she was thriving on mediocrity or just average play -- well, don't know what to say lol.

To be honest, 2011 was even worse where she had three 1st round losses (Stanford, Carlsbad, Cincinatti) and a 2nd round defeat against Baltacha right before the USO. At least she managed to reach the 3rd round back then..

In her defense, Rittner said she had some problems with injuries after the olympics. Charlieflip also mentioned that here (http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=22053950&postcount=92). So, let's go easy on her ;)

This was not a surprise, was it? She may have had a few injuries lately, but in general, the whole 2012 has been a dissapointment

Skoo
Aug 28th, 2012, 02:32 PM
Well, it could have been worse. She could have been out of top 50. She could have also been ranked much higher, given that she lost a lot of tight matches.

6-4,6-2 against Shvedova/King and a great atmosphere on the court !
The crowd really liked her and also the camera man.;)

It was the best dubs performance I ever saw from her.
Her serve was really cracking and she was showing some really good net play.

Btw., the tissues are back again.:(

This is how she plays when she's confident and Kveta gives her the confidence. She can be so good, dammit.

Doing well in dubs at least. A tough QF coming up, those two Italians are in great form as evidenced by their QF singles showings. Of course they will also be a bit more tired because of singles, but I think the form offsets that, plus I think those Italians are very fit.
