Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Well done Mona. That must be a relief for her, to get a win in a must win situation.

It was indeed.
Mona described in the interview afterwards how her hands got stiff and she at times hardly couldn`t even hold her racquet in her hands because of nervousness later on in the match.
Emotionally it was of course very different from what we saw from her at Charleston in the break. I`ve never seen Mona happier before.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Big relief that Mona could beat Bojana.. I imagine how much pressure on her did she have .
Congrats to a successful debut in the national team

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Very tough draw for Mona.
No clue what to expect from her at Stuttgart after FedCup.
Mona is not playing her best tennis right now. A match against Sharapova in round 2 must be her goal and would be very interesting.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Abysmal performance against Safarova. Pegula-like once again.

The worst thing was her attitude and her mental state on court. Absolutely unprofessional and alarming.
Mona obviously has a big problem in this issue.

+1. This is all what needs to be said after this match.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

That was her 4th loss in a row on the tour, if we don't count the FC matches.

Pretty similar to last year between Madrid and Wimbledon where she lost 6 matches in a row.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Really disappointing performance and I am also disappointed by Mona herself a bit.
Itīs just what we have seen already before many times.
Mona takes a lot of risk , so itīs normal that she has many upīs and downīs in her game but right now she just doesnīt have that confidence anymore which she had earlier
this year, 1st serve % was awful already in 1st set and she didnīt play great but got annoyed too easily, was predictable then that she would lose her serve as soon as it gets important.
And once she lost the first set it was clear that she would totally fuck it up in 2nd set as her attitude was just disgusting today.

At her home tournament where she still would have all chances to win it in three sets and she doesnīt care at all, sad to see,Mona too disappointed by herself and then just gives up, like against Pegula or last year against
Davis , even at slams or other important tournaments..she just canīt deal with such situations.

Anyway, she is able to fight even on a bad days, FedCup Performances werenīt great also but they were ok, she was playing for her country and she showed a great fight but now whe she "only" plays for herself
again she continues where she stopped before in Charleston..really curious how she will continue during the clay season, seemed like she got finally a bit more consistent but now again with three 1st round loses in a row in combination with her bad attitude,so she needs some help here for sure.
I hope that those who saw it (coach, Rittner, others) are able to give her some good advices, she has too much talent, would be such a waste if she couldnīt improve some things and itīs obviously
not only about getting more consistent, itīs also much about mental strength and attitude.

That's how I see it.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Didn't see it but reports are disappointing. I know Lucie is very dangerous and capable of excellent tennis though.

A bit of a shame for her, if she had set up a match with Sharapova she would have had little pressure on her and probably would have been able to produce her real tennis.
