I think she already played a lot of tournaments(and matches) this year and needs a break to recover towards RG. If she will win some rounds in Madrid (depends of the draw), she had enough clay court matches to to well in Paris
meh, Mona vs Julia
I hope that the winner of this match gets past Wozniacki as well, which is definitely possible but draw isn´t that great in general with Serena waiting in 3rd round. But many points here already for 1st and 2nd round wins and really important and interesting battle here anyway.
We´ll see how Mona will do in Madrid, hope she is OK again after skipping Estoril!
Mona´s first serve has to work, same for Julia, I don´t think that we will see many longer rallies here, beside that everything can happen (break festivals, great serving from both, big chokes etc.) as both are not really consistent yet.
Mona will have the advantage from the baseline while Julia´s A game is more effective on clay , good luck to both
Also wenn sie bei diesem draw das Turnier nicht gewinnt weiß ich auch nicht. Es wären ja "nur" Görges und vermutlich Wozniacki, S. Williams, Sharapova, Kvitova/Stosur und Azarenka zu schlagen, d. h. 5 Top-Ten Spielerinnen und Görges zum aufwärmen. Arme Mona!
