Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

So finally, Mona will face Pironkova, who beat Zakopalova in 3 sets. I prefer Mona to play Pironkova, I think that Mona will be able to neutralize Pironkova's weak forehand side with her game. Go Mona!

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Not so unexpected result.. Klara reached the final last week in China and probably is tired

I think it doesnt make that much of a difference against whom Mona plays tomorrow. Pironkova might have gotten a confidence boost from this unexpected victory and could turn out to be a dangerous opponent.

In the end its about Mona winning or loosing this. Its on her racket and i think she will win in two sets (something like 63 62).

Zakopalova was playing well but Pironkova was hitting winner after winner. Great start to the season!!!!

I didn't see the match but it looks like Pironkova improved a lot.
This will be a tough match probably. Hope Mona plays well this time.

I saw the third set and thought that this was rather a mediocre match from both players maybe due to the wind conditions. Zakopalova seemed to be a bit tired and made a lot of unforced errors for her standards. Pironkova's performance was at most solid but in contrast to the post of her fan she pushed her forehand most of the time and hit only three good winners with it.

So if Mona shows up with a good performance tomorrow and attacks Tsveti's forehand she will prevail.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Morgen das zweite Match. Also irgendwann mitten in der Nacht und Angie dann morgens um 6 oder so, wenn sie denn weiter kommt, das ist ja wieder sehr Zuschauerfrendlich.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

I genuinely think Tsveti is a way better match-up for Mona than Zakopalova. Let's kick some ass, Mona, and avoid the fuckery.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Some of what Pironkova said about the match against Mona:

"I'm expecting a tough job tomorrow, I mean she is really really good player. I practiced with her several times. I kinda know what to expect but we will see. Definitely it'll be tough"

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

on twitter people ask what kinda odd tennis outfit she wears ... and why

I mean, I'm actually not fashion focused but better than the *grandmalook* she might choose for the next match.....
