The tournament in Washington just ended for me. I wasn't able to win against Andrea, she was playing too good today. All the credit to her... But I will learn from that and will be working really hard for my next tournament in Montreal.
I think she should start to become more self-critical.

Well, she must be still dazed by the lopsided dismissal, for the Roger's Cup for the ladies is in Toronto, not Montreal.

Maybe you are right. But given the match statistics it's pretty likely that Mona would have also lost against Pegula again yesterday.

What i wanted to say is that she should focus more on the actual flaws of her own game than to praise her opponents, in order to finally become a competitive player again. Such a devastating loss without getting a single break point on the opponents serve is a problem IMO, even against such an accomplished player like Petkovic.

Giving credit to your opponent is a good thing but doing that to often (like Mona does) makes you less competitive. As i said, Mona should rather concentrate on her own game and her development in order to end her losing streak.

There has to be something going really wrong when a talented player like Mona is not able to get past R2 for four and a half months.

I am in Toronto right now for my next tournament. But so far, things could have gone better. My plane was delayed, my suitcase got broken and today in practice I twisted my ankle. But luckily nothing serious happened and I will be ready for my match tomorrow against Jie Zheng. Hopefully the luck will be on my side

Hopefully she is not just relying on that but also can produce some decent tennis finally again.
All the best for Mona at Toronto.

Unfortunately I lost a tough three set match to Sloane Stephens today. A little bit disappointed, but overall I played a good match and I am looking positive to my next tournament in Cincinnati.

Mona's new report:
Quote:
Won my first round 6:3 6:4 against Lucie Safarova today. It is never easy playing against her, because she is such an aggressive player. But happy, I could win in straight sets.
I am playing Maria Kirilenko in my next round. Never played her before, but excited for tomorrow. Wish me luck, so I can get another Top 20 win and maybe a match against Serena Williams

Unfortunately I couldn't challenge Serena more. I lost the match 6:4 6:1. But it was an amazing experience playing against her for the first time. I will take all the positives from that match and I will learn a lot from it for the future!
Thank you Cincinnati for the amazing stay here and I am looking forward coming back here next year
Up next for me the US Open!!

Mona's first US Open report:

Quote:
Hello from New York! I love coming to this city, it's so special and unique.
This year I decided not to play a tournament the week before the US Open, so I have more time to prepare and get ready for my first match.
They made the draw today and I will play Johanna Larsson from Sweden in my first round. We played three times (Auckland 2013/ Copenhagen 2012 and Bundesliga 2011) and I won all of them. I will do everything that this streak doesn't change
