Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

She has lost her first match in 6 of the last 7 mandatory tournaments

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

What`s up with you guys ? Her forum has become a congregation of mourners.

I think, it can`t get worse as it was against Safarova.
And didn`t she beat Flipkens at Hobart ?
So how about some more optimism, folks ?
Last season her slump started at Madrid, this time it will end here.
(Hope so at least.)

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Mona has second-round points to defend here, so hoping she's focused when she gets on the court.

is coming for your towel, too.

As for Mona, i wouldn't say that her actual slump is as bad as the one of last year, but nonetheless i think that she firstly has to rebuild some confidence again in order to win against these quality opponents. I don't expect her to do better before the end of the clay court season. So as i mentioned before, i think that Mona will lose today.

But if Mona and Yaroslava prove us wrong, we will possibly witness some extremely good tennis in case they are both on. But on the other hand i think that a huge chokefest would be more likely.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

First of all, Mona has to show a different attitude tomorrow.

It's really hard for us to be optimistic knowing how easily can Mona be in self-destruct mode. Her attitude is awful.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

4-6, 1-6
Obviously another horror show from Mona.
Welcome back to the slump.

Such experiences leave marks and probably not in a positive way.
Mentally she seems not to be able to play matches right now.

Time to think about and regroup.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Last year she had 6 losses in a row from Madrid till Wimbledon.
Now she has 5 from Indian Wells till Madrid, if we won't count the Fed Cup win.

The good thing is that she has no points to defend in the next 2 months. But it's possible now that she won't be seeded in Paris.
