Mona was talking about other players in the interview - I was merely commenting on it.

He actually agrees with your point. You misunderstood him.

I don't think she can improve a lot her net-play, but at least she should improve a swing-volley

Re: Mona Barthel

Monas mögliche nächste Gegnerinnen sind ja auch mal interessant. Gegen Scheepers, Flipkens, Jovanovski, dazu noch Davis und Vesnina hat sie die letzte Begegnung jeweils verloren. Babos war auch nen ganz knappes Ding im Tie Break des dritten Satzes, dass sie dann ja noch gewonnen hat.

Das ist sowas wie das Kabinett des Grauens der zweiten Jahreshälfte 2012. Teilweise waren das die richtig deutlichen Klatschen. Von daher um so wichtiger das sie hier noch ein paar Runden übersteht.

But consistency will be the key if she wants to join the TOP 15 this year and she has to start winning the tight battles. And i think in order to attain this goal she needs a helping hand during the whole season.
I agree with you everything you said, esspecially with the marked parts.
There will be ups and downs for sure also in this season.
But I wish she could at least spare herself and us such a hard time which she had in the second half of the last one.

As i mentioned above, from a technical standpoint her volleys (especially her forehand volley) are quite good because of her very stable arm position. The problem is that until now she has a lack of determination when she moves to the net and with a shaky net position its hard to play solid volleys. I think by time and with rising confidence she will improve on this issue and in 2014 we will see Mona as a good net player.

So true! Between May and October last year we had very much to suffer but i never stopped believing in this wonderful talent. I think after all those matches -remember she still had to play all the qualis at the beginning of the year- she became tired and maybe she crumbled a bit because of the rising expectations. Maybe she should have taken an off-time somewhere in the middle of the season to recreate some energies and to have some practise time with her homecoach. The latter she should take into consideration for this year because she needs someone who controls her technique from time to time. But maybe she will travel again with her tourcoach Alexander Flock during the european season.

I anyway think she will be a bit more stable during the course of the year and the average of her performance will also be higher in my opinion. So if she aims at the TOP 15 this year its a realistic and also challenging goal for her.

8.1.: I am happy to win my first match in Hobart this year. We had a really late start in the night and Ashleigh started quite well. But I could improve my game in the second and third set. I want to say thanks to the spectators, who waited so long to see our match, it was really cold during the night. Today I have to face Chanelle Scheepers.
Good luck Mona.

Ashleigh seems to be a nice girl with a lot of talent. And she is right about Mona being on fire. She is just unplayable when she is on.

Ace, unforced error, unforced error, winner, service winner, service winner. Scheepers apparently also present at the match.
