I`m just happy with the way she got through this.
Attitude-wise it was one of her best performances I`ve ever seen from her and this win could be very worthy for her further career.
Her new coach might play a role in that context.
Important win. Hope she learned sty. and is able to avoid the choke against the next Top 5 Player.
I dont think that it was that much of a choke today. I have seen really worse from Mona in that department. Errani played very well on three of the four matchpoints so she deserves credit for that. A big time choking Mona would have never been able to play that well after 2:3 in the tiebreak. And don't forget she took the fourth matchpoint after a longer rally with a cracking forehand winner down the line.
What Mona may have learned today is that she is still able to stay focussed and win the match later even after not converting some matchpoints against a mentally very strong opponent. I think this is a very worthy experience for her.
50 unforced errors is quite a lot but 53 winners is also pretty great. I'm glad she won the title and also beat Errani because I really don't like her.
Mona wasn't great today imo but she wasn't bad either. She played a good match overall. She missed a lot of chances and made many easy errors but the most important thing is that she won in the end. She was so nervous today unlike in her pervious matches. That's understandable though since this was a big final for her.
Anyway, let's enjoy this win as much as we can. A great start of the year for her despite the R1 loss in AO.
