Before the match against Sam I read a comment here that said "should be no problem". Some people need a reality check. We cannot expect Mona to take top 10 players apart week in week out. She is not top 5 yet and she still has a long way to go. I believe in Mona's game and I think she will go this far but not quite yet. So please lower your expectations and be a little more realistic, it's still a learning process.
I do hope she learns to handle players that play with a lot of spin better. It's good for her that not many girls play like Stosur.
Stosur is Stosur and she is pretty unique in her style of play and serving in women`s tennis. They played against each other yesterday for the first time. She had some problems with Errani at Paris who also prefers to play a Top Spin forhand in her groundstrokes, but Mona won that match.
So your final conclusion is a little bit inappropriate to me. And as you say she still can learn a lot.
The member you are talking about does it every time as you may have noticed. Because I hardly have read any negative comments towards a player of him/her when the prediction was wrong I`m not quite sure whether he/she is serious or just has a little strange way to wish a player the best for a match.
Imo there is no serious reason to be annoyed of it.
What actually annoys me are the hidebound wiseheimers, the dizzers and haters you can find everywhere on TF. Not in Mona`s forum but also in some other German threads the atmosphere is poisoned at times.
Also the pretty low level of talk and discussion in tennis technical issues. You can hardly find really worthy comments as a newby in tennis.
There is no need to talk about GM where you can find galores of sick, sad and brainless comments of internet addicted poor devils. Not very appealing indeed.
Some players might have taken a look here at the beginning of their career, but they will have lost the interest pretty rapid, I guess.
It`s a pity that posters like Howard for instance who really can tell a lot about the details of the sport are rare and also do not post here very often. Idk, it also might have to do with the above mentioned things.
