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.
This is the most important thing she was showing .
Mona could have had it easier looking at the chances she wasted in the currency of the match.
But she proved that she can not only can play well and easy against significantly weaker opponents but also can hang in and win these close matches against tough and very consistent opponents. Not to get away with it but that was absolutely new with Mona these days.
Shame that I could only watch the first set. The second I followed by ticker and I remarked that she could have had this win much easier or after all faster. But nice to see Monas growing consistance particularly at crucial points. The Mona of Hobart would not have won this. So she should take the coach all time, it's a good investment.
