Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2
Garbine is a very talented player and i think she is a bit overlooked by the media who are rather focussing on the young american talents (i really like Hampton). But let's not forget that she also lost to Beck at the beginning of the year and in terms of matchup she should be more suitable for Mona than a so called crafty player (Rybarikova). And even though we are praising Garbine's talent we should not forget the huge amount of talent that Mona has.
Compared to Miami i am somehow a bit more optimistic and i would say that Mona has, despite the tough draw, good chances to go deep. If she believes in herself she won't have to fear any opponent in this draw except Serena of course.
