71% First Service. Normally she has sth. around 50 - 60 % and some aces. But in Set1 she won almost all of her 2nd serves. In Set2 only 1 of 11. Sonst wäre das Spiel auch 15 Minuten schneller vorbei gewesen.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Now 4-1 against Kiki, and does one round better than last year.

Meets Ana, who she's 1-0 against.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

72% of 1st serve % is impressive.
Her experimental safer play didn't work well last year.
But she still struggles in Das Extrem mode against consistent players.
I hope she will find the golden balance soon.

Good win.

Ivanovic next. Bigger challenge, but I'm confident that new Mona will win it.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Good scoreline against Bertens!
71% 1st serves in, that is really good for Mona, guess she didn´t risk it all at her 1st serve but winning 70% is still totally fine, 2nd serve was Mona´s biggest problem in 2nd set but good that she was able to win it in two sets at least.
Ivanovic next, tough match, Mona needs to serve well if she wants to win it, hope for many aces/service winners..we´ll see, losing to Ivanovic wouldn´t be a shame as well anyway, good luck!!

Head To Head against Ivanovic is 1-0. Mona will beat her again

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Going by the reports from her Townsend match, Ivanovic was pretty crappy. If Mona continues to play as solidly as she has this year I don't think she will be a big hurdle. Plus Mona has a coach again this week. And looking at the draw, I would say Mona is almost the favorite to make it out of this quarter.

Mona can it! She is for me a clear favorite. The site tennis4wta.com sees Mona clearly with 60.9% in front, bet356 say 50:50. But the decision will be at the court.

Don't talk to me about rules, dear. Wherever I stay I make the goddamn rules. MC
