By request of many readers, here is another foxy german player who is also looking to get into the top-10 of the WTA rankings: Julia Goerges!
Julia Goerges bio
Julia Goerges was born in Bad Oldesloe, Germany on November 2nd 1988, where she still resides.
Her highest singles ranking is world number 16, a feat she achieved on June 2011.
In her career, Julia Goerges has reached three singles WTA finals, winning two titles. It’s interesting to know that, while she prefers playing on quicker surfaces, both her titles were on clay. Her first final was won against hungarian Timea Bacsinszky in Bad Gastein, Austria, in July 2010, in straight sets. Three months later, “Goergeous” had her only loss in a WTA final against Roberta Vinci, in Luxembourg. In April 2011, Julia Goerges defeated fellow german hot tennis player Sabine Lisicki in the quarter-finals of the Stuttgart Porsche Grand Prix (and yes, it’s a tennis tornament, not some kind of motor racing event). She then beat number 5 seed Samantha Stosur in the semi-finals and the then world number 1 Caroline Wozniacki in the final.
She has reached at least the 3rd round of every Grand Slam, both in singles and doubles.
“Gorgeous” is also active in social networks. Here is a link to Julia Goerges Twitter.
