Re: My interview with Mona Barthel - "Star in the making"
After this interview I like her even more. She sounds to me level headed and intelligent, quite the opposite to the interviews of diva in the making Sloane. I hope that this year will be her real breakthrough into the top 10-top 15. She´s got the game for it, sure, but as another poster has already pointed out, last year she was also playing extremely well, and then after Stuttgart she slumped horribly for almost the rest of the year. In Paris I've seen her for the first time expressing emotions on court, even frustation at her mistakes. For me that is a good sign of a new commitment and determination replacing the pasiveness of former times. WTA needs, urgently, real talented players in the Top 10. She should be one of them. I hope to see her there pretty soon.
