That's really nice of her! Great that she acknowledges your support.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Ihre Berichte auf der Webseite zeigen doch, dass sich ihr Selbstbewusstsein steigert. Zusammengefasst klingt dass nach "Ich hab so gut gespielt das Angie keine Chance hatte!"

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

I don't get the Kerber hate either. Can't even understand based on what it is, as most of the time, people just bash her without the tiniest argument.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Maybe it's because she has beaten Serena and Maria. But who knows. I like her.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

I didn't like Kerber's behaviour years ago. She looks unpleasant for me, I didn't like her "come on" and game. But since Eastbourne and Wimbledon '12 I started to like her counterpunching game a bit. But oficially started like her game and her personality after YEC. Her match against Azarenka... Since then I'm supporting her from time to time. She's not my fave, sometimes she still annoys me, but I have more respect for her.

Hisagi, I'm jealous I'm happy with you so much even can't meet her. I'm waiting for her in Poland, maybe someday she will appear there. Probably I won't talk with her, I'm so shy, like you And my english is not enough good.

Mona Barthel ♥

Something was clearly bothering her in this match. However, that doesn't mean she would have beaten Mona today if she was 100% fit but at least she would make this match more competitive.

I'm very happy for Mona obviously. That was such a good match from her. I will watch it again for sure. I kept saying "come on Mona" whenever she won a big/great point. She was hearing me since I was near to her. At the end of the match she looked at me exactly to see my reaction maybe. I was fistpumping a little bit while looking at her. She smiled at me again.

Amazing stuff, Hisagi!

And good to hear that Mona is so nice to her fans. But i am sure that each and everyone of us already knew that beforehand. I have no doubt that her attitude and behaviour won't change even if she becomes more successful now.

Concerning Mona's performance in this tournament it seems that you are a very good talisman for her. She played really well in her clean-hitting mode today with astonishing few unforced errors. But at the same time Angie was a bit rusty after coming back from her back injury so she is far away from her normal level at the moment. But in general i think that Mona really is a bad matchup for Angie what you could also see in their previous matches.

On GM are a lot of haters so i think its not relevant what they are thinking about Angie or any other player. Hopefully she gets back to her form of 2012 again and maybe next year you will enjoy a really tough battle between these two.

BEST DAY EVER!!!! Still can't believe I met her and talked to her. I was too nervous at first but then I told myself "Damn it! Go talk to her already, you coward. This is your only chance.".

I saw her in court 1 watching a match between the annoying Putintseva and another random player. I had a chance to talk to her after that match but I didn't do it because I was too nervous.

Then Mona and her mom went to the center court. I gave up and didn't follow Mona to talk to her. Then after 40 minutes I was about to go home but before gping home I was curious to know what's happening in center court. I didn't see anyone there apart form security guards and some guys who were checking if the Hawkeye works or preparing the Hawkeye.

Wait a min......when I was still checking who is on center court, I saw Mona and her mum there. This was my another golden chance. Thank God I didn't waste it like the 1st one. Can't believe I got another chance thanks to my curiosity. I talked to her finally. I really can't describe my feeling at the moment. I'm still so happy.


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 I'm big fan of her 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 asked also "who is the closest German player to you?". She said all of them but first she mentioned Angie and Julia (joy division you were right. Julia and Angie are the closest to her among the Germans).

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.



Done.
So, so happy for you

I so want to meet her. Hopefully at Eastbourne

My English is really poor tbh. We have a lot of things in common it seems.
Hope you meet her one day.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

As expected win over Kerber !

Mona played very well, but honestly Kerber was only at 50 %. She could hardly serve and was slow, let many balls pass. Kerber should have retired. Like Kirilenko, Wickmayer, Makarova, Halep, Lepchenko. But Kerber is just too nice. Wozniacki in R3 will be no problem for Mona.

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck
