Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

A typical scoreline for Mona. Winning one set easily and loosing the other two by a small margin.

A devastating loss!

Congratulation Johnbert, it`s post No 1000 with this content.

Well, she needs some help that`s pretty obvious.
But it`s not realistic that anything will change right now.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Given her results the last 2 weeks, it seems to be some sort of stage anxiety that makes her particularly erratic at slams.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

She had good results at the Grand Slams until the FO 2012.

FO 2011 - 2nd round after qualifying
Wim 2011 - 1st round after qualifying
US Open 2011 - 2nd round, beat a seeded player with MJMS
AO 2012 - 3rd round after beating a seeded player with Cetkovska

but then

FO 2012 - 1st round loss against Davis
Wim 2012 - 1st round loss against Zvonareva
US Open 2012 - 1st round loss against Jovanovski
Aus Open 2013 - 1st round loss against Pervak

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

The FO 2012 was the first slam were she was a household name.

It appears to be so. The other problem is that she nearly never wins the tight three-setters. Even on ITF-level she lost these matches most of the time.

This is a Mona Slam.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

It was not the first time at Hobart last week that Mona mentioned that she prefers calm locations with a relaxed crowd.
But I actually think that it`s not the main reason for her obviously bad and shaky performance of today.
She was in a horrible shape before the last three GS of the past season.
This time she also was showing some tendency that her form curve and attitude goes down a little towards the end of the week at Hobart.
She probably also was a bit tired from the last two weeks and then unable to cope with the heat and the different atmosphere at Melbourne.
However, as a pro you have to be able to deal with that.

1st round grand slam exit for the 4th time in a row

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

If she will lose early in Paris, she could be out of the top 50
