Could be an interesting match.
It was more than interesting, she actually won in straight sets 6-3 6-4!!! This result should bring her pretty close to the top 100 and she has a much easier match in the second round against either Baroni or Vickery.

Re: Julia Glushko

Will be playing 18 yr. old Sachia Vickery in the second round. Julia has got to be a favorite in this one.

Today's win deserves a pic here (thanks to Tapuz users):



Looks good any way you look at it

US Open 2013

Julia beats 18 y.o. Sachia Vickery 7-5 6-3, saving two set points (one at 3-5, one at 4-5), gets to the 3rd round of the US Open and will play either Hantuchova or surprise girl Duval.
With this win, she makes what many of us probably thought will never happen and cracks the top 100

(So my prediction - like any other I ever made regarding the rankings - came true after all...

I did backtrack a bit just before she took off last summer...
http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost....&postcount=374 and also next page)

Also only the 3rd Israeli, after Anna and Shahar, to get to R3 of a major.

Now you are making me look bad. I was quoted around the time you backtracked as thinking that she would never make the top 200! I am very glad I was wrong. While her physical skills were never in question, she seems to have to come a long way in the mental department, which for many players is just as important.

Re: Julia Glushko

Actually you said that 3 years ago shortly before her first breakthrough in Australia at the end of 2010.
And my backtracking was in April last year, before her second one in the US hard court circuit

She is obviously a late bloomer.
This is also proven by the numbers: out of 118 players on the list (including her and Japanese Nara who also broke in), Julia is only one of six to crack the top 100 after celebrating her 23rd birthday.

Re: Julia Glushko

Julia has a tremendously powerful game. She hits the ball with purpose and authority. She has enormous potential, despite the fact that she is already 23 or so.

Did you attend both of her matches at the US Open? How is she doing handling her emotions? She used to be a very volatile player.

She is acting quite uncharacteristically calm and focused. She has a lot of "come on's" and "kadima's" when she hits a good shot, but not many negative emotions. When she was down 3-5 against Sachia she was just pumping herself up after every point. Maybe a few times she gave an angry glance to her coach when she missed, but she totally kept it under control. She has great shots. Can't attend today's match, but it will be live streamed, so you will get to see it for yourself.

Re: Julia Glushko

Heartbreaking loss to Hantuchova in R3, 6-3 5-7 (4)6-7
Was 5-2* 30-0 up in the 2nd set with complete control and Dani blasting UE left and right, when suddenly the veteran raised her game by some levels and reeled 8 games in a row for a 3-0 lead with a double break.

Match looked over, but Julia staged a brave comeback, broke twice, got broken, broke again and served for 5-4.
And then she had 4 MP (15-40, Ad, Ad) on Dani's serve To be honest she didn't actually had a chance on either one, Hantuchova played very well to save them all.
Deciding TB wasn't very good.

I can only hope that she gets another chance to make the second week of a slam in the foreseeable future...
As much as I wanna be optimistic it's hard not to have this thought: http://www.tapuz.co.il/forums2008/vi...geid=171332553
When Shahar played her first QF and was two points away from beating Serena the common vibe was "a pity, but she'll get another chance". Well, she did make another slam QF later that year, but had no other chance to reach a semi and it seems increasingly unlikely that she ever will. Sometimes you don't get a second chance...

BTW, Shahar on her first two majors in '05 (R3 and R2 at FO and Wimbledon) was ousted by... Petrova and Hantuchova.

Re: Julia Glushko

Remarkable match in terms of momentum shifts. Hopefully, this turns into a learning experience for Julia, in how to finish a "won" match. By the way, does anyone know what she has scheduled for the next couple of months?

I would have to disagree with you in the sense that she will never get another chance. I think that Shahar is much different than Glushko in the sense that Shahar never had any defining weapons that made her game particularly special (other than her fighting qualities). Glushko is a more naturally gifted tennis player, in my opinion. She has more penetrating groundstrokes, and that backhand down-the-line of her's is a beautiful shot to watch. And now that her mental lapses seem to have been fixed (for the most part), I think we will see much more from her. Every top player has had an agonizingly close match go against them after having match points on their way up the rankings. It is just part of the learning process. While it is an enormous pity that Julia did not make the fourth round after the match she played today, I do not see her going away any time soon, especially when you consider that she will not have to play qualifying at the Australian Open next year.

Re: Julia Glushko

I have to admit that, for example, when Tzipi lost from 4-1 in the 3rd in AO 2000 (to a Mexican player that retired soon afterwards), I thought she blew her chance to for a slam MD win. It took 4 years but eventually she had four.

Julia will get more MD wins soon enough and I don't see her going away either - she should establish herself in the top 100 and she's good enough to do that; however, she's not a future top 20 and better players than her never made the last 16 in a major.

I do not like to talk about her potential, as I have always been wrong. In the beginning of this year I felt that she would never make it past the top 130. If you asked me right before her run in the summer of 2012, I would have told you that she would never re-enter into the top 200. You never know with Julia. She could surprise you. I think she played like a top 50 player this week. Top 20, I don't think so, but again, she has always managed to spectacularly exceed my expectations. And yes, better players have never made the round of 16, but with the enormous amount of grit and fight that Julia has I find it hard to believe that she will never even be in this position again. She can give a lot of really good players some trouble on the tour. Hopefully she starts playing some WTA Internationals to get herself more established.
