Julia´s serve is just too weak, on the other hand Bartoli´s returns are great as usual.
11% on 2nd serve was clear but also not effective on 1st serve, Julia has to risk more on her 1st serves if she wants to have a chance.
Female commentator said exactly what I was thinking. When the rally unfolds Marion is in trouble because she gets pushed around too much. But she is a master of not allowing the rally to unfold. Julia must prolong the points.
Julia must hit the first serve more accurately. And the second serve also must be better placed. And she needs to realise that the "danger zone" where she is most likely to stuff up against Marion is in the first few shots of the rally. Just get through the danger zone and get the rally to unfold and she'll be in good shape, but Marion tries to finish all points before that can happen.
Marion´s returns are just too good so far, she is in control of the rallies immediately as she is able to hit to Julia´s bh and then she has all chances + she loves the kick serve of Julia, statistics are similar as in Tokyo.
Marion herself isn´t great on serve but plays really good in general, hope that Julia is able to win a few more points now , especially over her 1st serve.
