Re: Julia Görges - Official Live Scoring thread
Performance was Ok, she fought again, similar scoreline as in Tokyo last week..again she was set and break down before she came back and even had chances to win 2nd set, disappointing TB obviously but that wasn´t surprising.
Served better in 2nd set, but it is always difficult against Bartoli anyway, her game just doesn´t suit Julia as much as Stosur´s game for example and Bartoli was really strong over 1st serve and hit those Aces when needed.
A shame that Julia couldn´t advance her, Suarez Navarro would have waited for her , missed the chance here for another highlight of the year but should be absolutely satisfied with her performance here in general, hope she just realizes that it is always worth to fight, even on bad days, hope that she will show much more of it next year.
Linz and Luxembourg to follow, tournaments which Julia likes, especially Luxembourg, should be able to finish the season with decent results and then work on the things which she has to improve.
And about the TB, I mean, Julia served great at 44 and 55 and had some chances then for the set, but whenever it was important Bartoli hit some good 1st serves again instead of DFs, same in the TB where she just didnt give any easy points to Julia while Julia made two or three of her "usual" mistakes which decided it in the end, that´s a bit frustrating but also shows why Bartoli is top 10 and Görges "only" top 20/30.
Her attitude and fighting spirit was still totally fine this week and losing to Bartoli isn´t a shame anyway.
