Re: Mona Barthel
My guess is she entered Estoril with the idea that Stuttgart would be a rather short week. Then she surprised herself with the two big wins on clay and the long competitive match with Azarenka. So she and her new coach probably decided to change up her schedule a bit. Honestly the draw wasn´t that good either with CSN and AMG in it early, so wise decision to skip Estoril, go straight to Madrid well rested and full of confidence.
