Besides, the slower courts this year at the DO would have suited Saina's attritional style better, and JS probably knew she would have to try and score with quick, short rallies if she were to stay in the game...

Congratulations to Juliane! Overall, a fantastic performance at the Denmark Open; she showed the door to 2 of the game's top players, and if she hadn't run out of steam in the finals, she might have pushed Saina to the limit. As GC said, "today was just one match too far for Juliane Schenk."
The nice gesture to her younger competitor...

At the Bitburger Open GPG, Juliane is in the finals, up against Yao Jie of the Netherlands. Their h-h is 3-2 in favour of Juliane, who has won the past 3 encounters.
Last year, Juliane lost in the semi-finals to LXR. Barring any major problems or issues, Juliane looks good to win the title this year...

I watched juliane's semifinal match against petya nedelchelva . Even petya was good till the second half of the rubber game. I think petya is also good player . She is taking everything thrown at her. Even petya was leading 14-11 in the rubber game. But the experience of juliane made her to move to final by finishing the game easily. Kudos to juliane. Congrats !!! She is continuously in fifth final of the year.

If Petya was born in Germany she might have been a better performing player than Schenk at this point but at least they are doing something right over there on the ladies side of things with Zetchiri and Stoeva(x2) as well or maybe more natural talent than structural development shining through

Well, well, well! It wasn't all that easy in the end for Juliane against the veteran Yao Jie at the Bitburger Open finals. She crawled over the finish line, 21-10 15-21 25-23. Notch another tournament victory for Juliane this year; what a year she's been having!

Schenk wins in Saarbrücken
04.11.2012, 18:50 clock
Germany's best badminton player and European silver medalist Juliane Schenk won the home tournament in Saarbrücken.
Excerpts: (via Google xlate)
..."It was an exciting experience, but you have to enjoy it," Schenk said after she had turned her third match point.
..."The last three weeks have me physically and mentally much demanded," said Schenk: "I have shown many times that I'm way in the world I need to tip more to prove anything to anyone, least of all myself."
And another one from the Badminton Germany website...
Excerpt (via Google xlate):
Juliane Schenk that one of the best badminton players in the world, is beyond question. But currently, the native Krefelderin floats on a real wave of success. After the world ranking sixth two weeks ago when doped with $ 400,000 Denmark Open Super Series tournament to the finals and came eight days later was at the French Open in the semifinals, she sat down today to the crown. The European silver medalist won for the second time after 2009, the Bitburger Badminton Open in women's singles. Here, the 29-year-old returned from the SG EBT Berlin against Yao Jie from the game of the day. The first set went with 21:10 on the top-seeded German, the second with 21:15 on the previous year's finalist from the Netherlands. The third set was then outbid real thriller: 19:19, 21:21, 23:23 - so the standings. Juliane Schenk in the end made the two points to 25:23. Then she lays down on the floor, covered her face with both hands and you could feel the tension literally falling on her.
"The past three weeks have demanded from me a lot. But I am grateful that my body has carried me this far. It's always nice to play in front of his home crowd and to feel this support. The thrill of it make in the end. Great respect even before my opponent, which was a meeting of equals - and thus came about this high-class match"

With the form she is having, defintely she can beat most of the top players excluding some(saina), lets see how she does in china open, where she needs to play Yihan(if she overcomes sindhu in the second round) in quarters. If she defeats yihan, then she would go final for sure. I hope her to see in the final.
