Re: Mona Barthel

There is not much to say, but this slump is pretty consistent.
Hard to believe that things could turn around quickly, but you never know, with Mona perhaps even more.

The gap between how Mona actually could perform and the way she does is imo the biggest among the German Top players.

Andrea has a hard way back after the injuries, how should it be different ?
The rest of them is pretty much clueless.
Will be interesting to see how they can deal with the situation.

Re: Mona Barthel

Damit ist die Woche schon wieder gelaufen. Naja Angie ist ja noch da, aber so macht das gar keinen Spaß mehr mit dem Tennis schauen.

Re: Mona Barthel

Und bald wird sich das auch für Görges, Lisicki, Barthel und Petkovic auch im Ranking auswirken.
Ich sagte ja schon, in Paris im nächsten Jahr könnte von den Deutschen nur noch Kerber gesetzt sein. Und wenn man dann noch Lospech hat, wird es richtig schwer wieder auf alte Rankingpositionen zurückzukehren.

Re: Mona Barthel

J. Zheng lost in the 1st round. However, Mona still needs a miracle to qualify for Sofia.

From her homepage

"Unfortunately I couldn`t win yesterday.
The long season with so many matches for me, but also travelling a lot to countries where I`ve never been before, leaves its marks."


Her tank is empty now and she is looking for the season`s end.

Re: Mona Barthel

Not really surprised to hear this from her. This is her 1st full season after all. She needs a break. I don't care about Sofia anymore. Rest Mona.

Sieht ganz so aus. Nächstes Jahr wird sich dann zeigen wo es hin geht und ich hoffe ja mal nach oben.

8.Barthel 1416

I just made a mistake, Hsieh has only 1426 points, so the race looks like this

1.Wozniacki 3205 (1st round Beijing)
2.Petrova 2725 (2nd round Beijing)
3.Vinci 2400
4.Kanepi 1929
5.Zheng 1482
6.Schiavone 1436
---------------------------------------------------------
7.Hsieh 1426 (2nd round Beijing)
8.Barthel 1416
9.Hantuchova 1395

Zheng has the best chance to qualify because her worst countable result is 1 point. Mona has to reach at least one SF in her last tournaments for her last chance.

Re: Mona Barthel

Zheng Jie will play everywhere to qualify. I like her chances as well, although her form has been poor.

Quote:
Arruabarrena-Vecino beat Chinese No.2 Zheng Jie, 62 64. "I really want to go to the tournament in Sofia, so now I'm going to Osaka and then I need to go to Luxembourg too," Zheng said after the match. "It's my results there that will decide whether I can qualify for Sofia - hopefully I can make it there."

Thank you for all these moments over the last years! Supported you until your final point!

Re: Mona Barthel

Race to Sofia (worst countable result)

1.Wozniacki 3340 (125)
2.Petrova 2725 (60)
3.Vinci 2400 (70)
4.Kanepi 1929 (-)
5.Zheng 1482 (1)
6.Schiavone 1436 (55)
---------------------------------
7.Hsieh 1426 (20)
8.Barthel 1416 (70)
9.Hantuchova 1395 (60)
10.Cornet 1290 (30)

Barthel needs at least one SF in Linz or Luxembourg, but most probably more.

Re: Mona Barthel

Mona's serve motion looks a bit different in 2010. She did change her motion a little on serve. The current serve motion of hers is more beautiful in my opinion.

Re: Mona Barthel

I was soo bored today so I made this simple video. It's just a repeat after repeat of her delicious BH. Later, I will make a new video about the great backhands she made this year.
