Just wonder who her coach is. He looks like Korean, but just sit there watching and doesn't talk to her at all during breaks.

It seems like she came here with a coach in order to assist her during tenser moments. But i believe she is strong even without coach . He may be here only to add a note to her psychological boost. She played excellently. Definitely i root her to the final . I want her to win a major title .

The german national coach for WS is called Xu Yan Wang, former coach of the german league team "Langenfeld".
Since Juli seems to insist on being on her own during a match, it's difficult to say what the "on court" collaboration between her and the coaches actually looks like.

I see. So it's Juliane who requests the coach not to border her. That's interesting. But she did hug her coach after she beat WYH.

We are starting to see another consistent player in the WS. This is very good news.
2 Final and 2 semi so far in the last 3 tournaments is something new for Juliane.
WY was quite hesitant in her movement yesterday especially near the net, probably worried about flaring up the knee. Anyway Juliane played a very good tactical game, let hope she goes all the way.

4 results from 3 tournaments is always a positive sign ^^

Juliane Schenk is regarded as CHN WS no.1 threat now as reported in the Chinese press. Just found out she had a Chinese coach , Wang Xuyan, as revealed by the German Head Coach Jacob, who claimed Schenk's resurgence is attributed to that Chinese coach.
It was revealed that Wang Xuyan chiefly focused on developing Schenk's speed and power, without elaborating, of course, except to say she often trains with two sparring partners simultaneously. In fitness and stamina, Schenk is unmatched.
In fact,just before the Olympics, Li Yongbo has counted Juliane Schenk and Saina Nehwal as their two main contenders. Post-OG, it proves to be more so, esp Schenk who so far has beaten six CHN WS, namely, LXR, Jiang YJ,Liu Xin,Chen Xiaojia,Wang Lin and WYH.

Plus "Head Coach Jakob" has already left after the Olympics so how old exactly is that article?? Also this WS coach has been in Germany for about 25 years now so it's not like it's a fresh import or anything ... and not to forget he will be the MS coach from now on after the coaching carousel has finally ended.

World No. 4 Juliane Schenk was looking cool and relaxed in the stands after her first-round victory over the potentially-dangerous Tai Tzu Ying of Taipei. Schenk stands out in badminton — she is probably the most forthright of all players, and expresses herself fully – whether it’s her disappointment with her national association, her opinion about her own form, or about other players in the circuit. A friendly sort as well, she greets me warmly, and readily agrees to an interview.
Excerpts:You beat world No. 1 Wang Yihan last week at the China Open… you’re beating the Chinese consistently now. Is it the approach?Yes, it’s simply about enjoying, right? Of course it’s always special as Yihan was on home soil. But previous tournaments have been good for me and I try to go my way. I’ve proved in the past that I can beat them. To make it consistent is great to see. There’s no special secret to it.
You’ve shown the path to other women’s singles players?I think so. In ladies singles there’s such a huge y of players. And what counts is the daily performance, right? You always have to be on top of your game, and your mental strength. And whatever counts to be on top, and it makes it quite interesting, whether it’s the Japanese or Indians or me or Tine (Baun), whoever is chasing the Chinese, it’s great for the game.
You lost to Saina twice in recent weeks…is there a mental block?I don’t think it’s a problem, but she played really well in both matches, and the first game was the decider for the whole match. You can see the boost of confidence you get from winning the first set. But never mind…the spirit she’s going on court is really really special, and the thing that’s really top class. I think they (Saina and Ratchanok Intanon) have a different spirit than the Chinese have. And that’s the deciding point right now, and that’s why they’re the same league. And I tend to the same spirit as they have, than to the Chinese. Saina and Ratchanok are really carried on by a special spirit, in my opinion.
With some exciting young players from Japan and Thailand coming up, is women’s singles becoming more open?Exactly. I think so. It has been proven in the past that it’s already open, but the more open it gets, the better. The last few years have seen different players from different countries, so it’s perfect.
How difficult was it for you to overcome the disappointment of the Olympics?To be honest, it was a tough time for me, and I’m glad to be who I am on court, and to find myself again. I had a big helping hand from my mental coach, and she gave me back what I have now again, the spirit, and my belief. But you see at some point with some (difficult) emotions, you need help. You even contemplated retirement after losing in the group stage.
What new goals have you set for yourself?I will just continue playing. The Superseries Finals this year is a goal. And I need to see what different goals I have to set, and what kind of partnership it’s going to be with the association. But right now I’m glad to be here and to be healthy and to perform like this.
What does it mean to be a player on the elite circuit?It’s always a pleasure, right? To be in touch with different cultures and different people. I always love this part of the sport.
Do you feel a bit bitter that you are not as well known as the tennis players, despite all the hard work?Yeah, but I think but we are on a good track. Nevertheless, you always have to work for things… the duties which the BWF has, because there are so many talented players, and it’s a fantastic sport, in my opinion. The sport deserves a lot of attention. I hope we can do better in future.

Juliane is strong both physically as well as mentally. Whenever you find a different spirit suppressing the thought of the age and problems behind , you will definitely perform better. Mental strength is very important.
Juliane is the only coach who have a separate mental coach.
There is an article about juliane which is interesting and enthusiastic to all other players.
“I simply love sport, no matter which sport it is,”
“From deep in my heart, I have always loved sport and I think that is the biggest motivation for me.”
“She(Camilla martin) was the only one from the Europeans who was really chasing the Chinese and challenging them, and that was quite amazing for me. I really liked to watch her play,”
Excellent Juliane.. Without any coach, without backup from German Badminton association, the way you are fighting is really amazing. I wish you all the very best in your future tornaments..

Juliane's golden period continues....
It's been a phenomenal period for Juliane Schenk ever since the OG, and her amazing run shows no sign of abating.
Just yesterday, Juliane was the central figure in Germany's shock win over Denmark in the European Team Championships 2013. She won her singles mach handily and then teamed up with Birgit Michels to win the women's doubles as well!
This shows the depth of self-belief and willingness to do whatever is required for the team. I cannot recall an equivalent event in recent years where a top WS player (BWF top-5 seeded, no less!) scratch-paired with another player for the finals of a Championships tournament!
Juliane continues to shock, and amaze, and leave so many fans in complete awe. Germany's title win is completely built on her spirit.

The soldier marches into the IBL - as a General, maybe?
Juliane has confirmed participation at the inaugural season of the IBL, where she will likely be one of the star attractions in WS --- and WD as well, if she has her way!
Her long-time (ex-) adversary and friend Tine Baun will also be joining her, according to the report.
