Re: 2016 Oceanic Swing

Thanks Leo!

Let's hope that Mona stays injury-free this time!

Another wasted off-season because of sickness/injuries.

A German saying tells that "This fits like the fist on the eye".

Probably not as harsh as last year but Mona obviously is ill since at least 10 days with another gastrointestinal story.
I fear that she will be so skinny now that she has to jump from side to side to get wet while taking a shower.

Btw. Merry Christmas to everyone !

It all depends how good/bad Kuznetsova is right now. You never know with her, she's totally inconsistant. At the end of the last season she won the Premier tournament in Moscow but that doesn't mean she'll start good into 2016 as well.

Re: 2016 Oceanic Swing

Interesting draw, both haven´t met each other since 2011 and back then it was a close 3 sets win for Sveta, could be similar this time also, tough to predict

Re: 2016 Oceanic Swing

This one is really hard to predict.

But it's certainly better to play Kuzzy in R1 than later on in the tournament.

Good luck!

Re: 2016 Oceanic Swing

It's gonna be tough, but when she'll got that win, she probably lose not before semifinal. I hope so at least

Re: 2016 Oceanic Swing

Mona retired after losing the first set at the beginning of the second set..

This isn't fair, normally this should be the best part of her season and everytime she's injured or sick..

Let's hope she'll be better in Hobart atleast!

Mona I don't know what to say, it's just so sad that she's got so many health issues lately
