However, that is precisely why Mona has two wins over her. Mona's backhand is strong so she is less vulnerable to leftiness.

The real problem for Angie will be if whatever injuries she has affects her ground game, movement or fitness, which is the real core of her game. For instance, if her injuries have forced her to take it easy on the off court work she may not be 100% in terms of anaerobic or aerobic fitness.

good analysis, and yes Mona COULD win her match

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

A little update on Angie`s injury from today on ran. de

Quote:

Kerber gibt vor den French Open Entwarnung

Paris - Tennisspielerin Angelique Kerber hat vor ihrem Auftaktmatch bei den French Open in Paris Entwarnung gegeben. "Ich denke, es ist nicht mehr so schlimm. Ich habe die letzten Tage sehr gut trainiert und bin einigermaßen fit", sagte die Weltranglistenachte, die zuletzt an einer Bauchmuskelverletzung laboriert hatte und das Vorbereitungsturnier in Rom absagen musste.

Die 25-jährige Linkshänderin aus Kiel hat ihre Probleme beim Aufschlag überwunden, auch wenn sie noch ab und zu an das Zwicken im Bauch denkt: "Natürlich habe ich die Verletzung noch im Kopf, aber sie ist eigentlich ganz einfach auszublenden. Ich bin ständig in Behandlung, und alle haben mir gesagt, dass nichts Schlimmeres passieren kann."

In Runde eins des Sandplatz-Highlights in der französischen Hauptstadt trifft Kerber auf ihre Fed-Cup-Kollegin Mona Barthel (Neumünster)."Wir sind in Paris, und das ist ein Grand Slam. Es ist schade, dass wir so früh gegeneinander spielen, aber ich grübele nicht darüber nach, wer auf der anderen Seite steht", sagte Kerber, die im vergangenen Jahr das Viertefinale beim zweiten Grand-Slam-Turnier des Jahres erreicht hatte.

Kerber is clear before the French Open

Paris - tennis player Angelique Kerber has given the all clear at the French Open in Paris before their opening match. "I think it's not so bad anymore. I was practicing very intensively in the last days and I`m quite fit now," said the world rankings Eighth, who had recently suffering from a abdominal muscle injury and had to cancel the warm-up tournament in Rome.

The 25-year-old left-hander from Kiel has overcome her problems on serve, even if it tweaks in the belly now and then: "Of course the injury is still in my mind, but I should simply just ignore it. I have permanent treatment, and all have told me that nothing worse can happen. "

In round one of the Clay highlights in the French capital Kerber meets her Fed Cup colleague Mona Barthel (Neumünster). "We are in Paris, and this is a Grand Slam. It is a pity that we play so early against each other, but I don`t worry about who`s on the other side", Kerber said who reached the quarter final of the second Grand slam tournament last year .

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

The German ES commentator just mentioned that Mona and Mortensen are trying out a partnership. So the photo that was taken is no coincidence.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

^ This is good news, as Mortensen had been successful at Roland Garros once before.

Let's hope this won't be a coach for 5 minutes only (just like Jesus).

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

She should get Piotr because she needs help mainly with match tactics and keeping focused and he will also get her an equipment deal and some sponsors.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

This is a really good decision FINALLY. Mona is not as technically sound and talented as Na Li, so this will take a little longer, but at least he got through to a headcase before.

did u really write that? its like something out of the Twilight zone! Not only is it insulting(the only headcase is the person who wrote that) but Mona has three tournament victories, one a premier.

Shes as technically sound and talented as Li Na...and even Azarenka, whom she held at match point last year. Vika said, Mona is one to watch. Thats far sounder judgement
