Really thought Monica would win this one

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Another three set loss for Monica. Monica rarely gets blown away. She consistly provides a tough opposition for the good players but there have been so many times she has faded in the 3rd set.

I still have faith in Monica but she and her team need to figure out a way so that she can maintain her best tennis for three entire sets. I do believe the focus needs to be on toughening her up mentally.

I thought she had a chance but Bondarenko is too solid over 3 sets for Monica right now.

Keep improving Monica.

We all got your sarcasm actually. Just that no one thought it clever or funny enough to comment on.
