Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Phew. I really didn't expect this loss after her performance in the first 2 weeks. Sure Pervak is a tricky opponent, but still...maybe somebody was at the match and will give a report.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

No 3rd round vs. Radwanska. Grr. But she must now be the highest ranked player who has zero points to defend in the next four slams.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

I won't bash Mona this time but she obviously needs help. Good luck in the rest of the season.

Only seeded WTA player to go out so far.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

She is probably tired after two tournaments in a row and the draw was tough for not seeded player -( but anyway she had to win this

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

We couldn`t watch it, but well...the scoreline tells a lot.
Far away from being consistent. Such an up and down.

I don`t get why all these players (for instance also like Julia ) talk so early about having improved instead of simply holding themselve back until they have shown it on the court.

Still way, way to go for Mona.
Of course, she needs to improve her play in a defensive position, but first of all she has to find some confidence and consistency in her offensive game.
She actually has enough weapons to avoid and compensate defensive play especially against such opponents.

Because her mother isn 't allowed to coach her during the matches at a Grand Slam

Well, close match, Mona has made more points than Pervak. But if you lead 40:0 in the third set at 4:4, you have to win this game. Mental problem as we said several times before.

There will be some players who will pass her in this week. I expect a position between 41 and 45 after the AO. And she has more points to defend in the following weeks. She is simple too weak at Grand Slams. From the last 4 Grand Slams, she lost 3 times against a player outside the top 50.
