Maybe the other girls were a bit pissed that Mona cancelled the fedcup. At least Julia was not amused about it whereas Angie seems to be very cool with this matter.

But anyway i still think it was the right decision to focus on her singles career for now and hopefully it pays off next week.

I remember that I was quite astonished of her comment after the match because Angie was really annoyed by this loss and close to fail the handshake.
Looking at Mona`s statements she knows Julia pretty well but she obviously had the most contact with Angie from all German players and also was practicing with her once.
Both have been some kind of peripheral figures in the German FedCupteam so far.
So for these reasons Angie is perhaps a little closer to her compared to the others.

Yes, Momo saved Rittner's ass.

Julia said that it should be possible to adapt one's schedule to the fedcup. So she was a bit critical about Mona's cancellation.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Moving on...

Mona's draw in Doha:

Caroline Wozniacki [10] - Qualifier
Sorana Cirstea - Ons Jabeur [WC]
Mona Barthel - Qualifier
Angelique Kerber [5] - Bye

A rematch against Angie looks highly possible!

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

Nice words from her

Not very good draw for Mona. At first I hope she'll draw good qualifier - no Bethanie

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Monday 15:30 against the absolute nutjob Putintseva. She knows what's coming though, she watched her already:

Barthel watched a bit the match, she just couldn't believe her eyes.

Barthel vs Putintseva should be fun tomorrow as the German was watching Putintseva's match today & laughing in disbelief about her behavior

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

interesting matchup

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

They are the absolute polar opposites when it comes to on-court behavior. I hope Mona doesn't get irritated by her antics.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2



YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! I can rest in peace now.

BEST DAY EVER!!!! Still can't believe I met her and talked to her.

I saw her in court 1 watching a match between the annoying Putintseva and another random player. I was sitting very near to her so I had a little chance to talk to her at that match but I couldn't do it because I was too nervous. I was telling myself at that moment "oh God why I'm such a gutless idiot?".

Then Mona and her mom went out of court one. I tried to follow them but after I got out of court 1 I didn't see them. I didn't know where they go. I searched a little bit around but I gave up eventually. I was about to go home but before that I was curious to know what's happening in center court. Just out of curiosity. I didn't see anyone there apart form security guards and some guys who were checking if the Hawkeye works or preparing the Hawkeye. I don't know what else they were doing.

Wait a min....! When I was still checking who is on center court, I saw Mona and her mum there sitting alone. I was like "OH. MY. GOD!". This was my 2nd golden chance! I was still too nervous to talk to her though. I was walking infront of her and I couldn't look at her face because you know if I looked at her and an eye-contact happens then I would feel embarrassed. I stood near them but I wasn't looking at them. I was fighting myself lol. After about 10 minutes I told myself "Damn!!! Go talk to her already, you fucking coward! You will never get another chance!". Thank God I didn't waste it like the 1st one. Thanks God! I talked to her finally. I really can't describe my feeling at the moment. I'm still so happy! Still can't believe that I got another chance because of my curiosity. God gave me another chance and didn't want me to leave to my home so sad.

She is so sweet and down to earth. What a lovely women. She was laughing when I told her that I was too nervous to talk to her. I told her that she is my n.1 fav and I was so happy to meet her finally. She smiled at me a lot and said thank you. I asked her about her favourite tournament. She answered AO (her fav slam) and Stuttgart. She likes Hobart too of course. I told her that I followed all her matches from this year and last year and I believe she can be the best German player. She smiled and said thank you.

Oh I asked her also "who is the closest German player to you?". She said all of them but first she mentioned Angie and Julia. I couldn't take a pic with her beacuse there was a fence between me and her. I told her I will take a pic with her tomorrow. She didn't train today by the way. Maybe she trained in the morning. Her mom is always with her.
