Re: Mona in Asia 2013 (Tokyo, Beijing)

Not a nice draw for Mona

Venus is obviously not in great shape but Mona herself wasn´t really impressive for longer time now as well, serve doesn´t seem to work these days and I can´t see her beating Venus this way but sure, Venus has some awful days as well obviously, so we´ll see...2nd round vs Azarenka would be too much then for sure, I guess, even if Mona likes it to play against her....

Re: Mona in Asia 2013 (Tokyo, Beijing)

Will the new WTA ranking point distribution hurt Mona?

Re: Mona in Asia 2013 (Tokyo, Beijing)

She plays tomorrow 3rd after 11:00 on Center Court, so if you're in Europe and get up early you should be able to watch.

Re: Mona in Asia 2013 (Tokyo, Beijing)

36 16

Couldn´t see most of it as I just came home but seems like Venus played one of her "better" matches and then it obviously gets tough for everyone but still...Mona´s serve isn´t a weapon anymore at all and Venus is a a great returner when she is on, so no chance for Mona!


Last year it was similar with Mona, not much positive after Stuttgart, this year her US hardcourt results were ok but just not special anymore, biggest wins over Kirilenko (who has awful results lately) and Safarova (who had awful results till Quebec).
Hope for a good draw in China, maybe she will improve again in Linz/Luxembourg, hard indoors is still her best surface..but I don´t expect too much anymore for 2013..so she probably will have a decent start into 2014 but she somehow has to become more steady throughout the whole season => get some real coach

(8)Jelena Jankovic v. Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova
Q v. Q
Mona Barthel v. Q
(12)Carla Suarez Navaro v. Kristina Mladenovic

Real chances to win first match, but some qualifiers are tricky. Fast surface should help her. Good luck

Re: Mona in Asia 2013 (Tokyo, Beijing)

This is a good draw and at the beginning of the season i would have believed that it's possible for Mona to come out as winner of such a section.

But now i am already happy if she beats the qualifier and makes it to R2.

Let's hope for the best. Good luck, Mona!
