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.
