Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

I'm afraid now. Vinci had good game. 4-3.

It's not great but Mona almost only had second serves in set 2 and could crush them.
In the last service game she had three ot of four first serves and Mona could get the ball back in play but Vinci would sneak away with a winner.
The serve is the most important shot in this match IMO.

Absolutely, given how quick the surface is and that indoors should allow for more precise serving. That's why I was pretty optimistic going into this match.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Two return errors on second serves. Mona MUST use this opportunity.

I think Errani gave her the correct advice for the 2nd set and now also. She probably told her to let Mona self-destruct in the 2nd set, but then Mona killed the percentage tennis from Vinci. Now it seems she told Vinci to be aggressive to force errors.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 25 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten three top 5 players en route to her 25 titles (#4 Radwanska, #4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)
