Our very last trip and Bad Gastein --

Well I know it's kind of early but anyways kind of first breaking news (?) no Charleston. That's 120 points going away and I was already processing all strategies for Julia to compensate Stuttgart which I recall is now a 'Premier 700' in other words going to have like 100% of the top 10.

Re: Our adventures with Julia on Clay - First no Charleston

I`m not sure about the infect, there were not significantly more tissues than else in use.
On the other hand Julia is not the most weatherproofed player and when you see her practicing hard and sweating in the wind, as seen in the videos of Aravanecaravane, you always fear that she`s in for catching a cold or something.
She might also be a bit tired and needs a little break apart from the tournaments to prepare well for this important part of the season. Maybe playing some cards again in good Ol`Bad Oldesloe. Why not.

To start with -120 points into clay season is not nice. Defending the points of Stuttgart and Madrid will be very hard/impossible. She wants to play Barcelona and Rome too, I guess.
Julia can earn something there and also reach the second week at RG so she might not fall down the rankings too much.

Re: Our adventures with Julia on Clay - First no Charleston

İ was waiting for the clay season, the best conditions for our jules. She has to be effective in her trainings in these free times.She should -sorry she must- get back herself together, if she wants to go olympics. This time We will see how much eager can she be when she wants something really bad i think. İ assume that she is really eager about the olympics beacuse first of all, it is freakin olympics and second of all it is olympics.

Would really love to see Julia have an excellent RG this year. She needs a breakout slam. Why not this one!

Re: Our adventures with Julia on Clay - First no Charleston

SIDENOTE : Ok guys still digesting the 4-41 W/UE Li posted in her 4th. round in Miami.

Guys promise to ban me if Julia ever reaches that kind of critical stage because I know Julia does have her unforced moments too but not right there.

Weirdly you know, Julia had more chances of defending herself in a Mandatory event than in Stuttgart.

This explains by the draw. Stuttgart is a 28 (32) draw which means Julia has a very high chance of meeting a top player in the 2nd. round to me with her actual ranking.

Madrid has a 128 draw -- so it allows Julia more opportunities to work herself into the tournament. In Stuttgart unless she has incredible luck I just don't see how she would escape getting a difficult top player early. Here's what a typical draw in Stuttgart would look like with the 8 seeds :

Code:
1 Vika
2 Bye
3
4
5
6
7
8 Stosur

9 Radwanska
10 Bye
11
12
13
14
15
16 Wozniacki

17 Stosur
18
19
20
21
22
23 Bye
24 Petra

25 Bartoli
26
27
28
29
30
31 Bye
32 Maria
She could take a difficult top player in her first match or in her R16 match -- I know it really depends to the top girl for example Bartoli or Caroline would not be bad.

I know she beat lots of top girls in 2011 but she had lost the first set Vika, still has not beaten Maria, Radwanska is a huge stub -- actually she can compete with Petra pretty well - and we need revenge against Marion.

I think Julia really has a big pressure to win Barcelona, she needs the Barcelona trophy absolutely.

Hm honestly, not a good thing? She may never has a chance to win a GS. If she dropp down the ranking a little after winning a GS just like Ana did then please do it Julia
I mean, winning a GS is forever. Fu.. the ranking after that

Yes it's Barcelona, she really needs the event -- I mean really.

If Julia wins Barcelona and manages to win at least just one match in Stuttgart which is 60 points she'll only lose 200 points and it shouldn't affect her ranking that much 2785 to 2585.

I prefer not talk about the other scenarios.
