Time to look ahead! After the mediocre start into the year, let's hope that Mona can show some improvements on her new favourite surface clay I hope she is finally healthy again, a bit worrying how much she struggled with injuries and illnesses this year
No entry lists yet from Rome, Nürnberg and Paris but I guess she will play these tournaments.
Quite a solid match from Mona against a pretty erratic opponent.
The quick surface seems to fit well to her game.
Next round of course will be much tougher, whether it will be against Mattek-Sands or Stephens.
good performance here, more aggressive again, some good serving as well, Mona played some nice points!
Babos was 2-0 in 2nd set but started to make tons of UEs towards the end, well done, hope she can play some good tennis against Stephens/BMS as well!
Liked her post-match comments in addition to her performance today. 'Believe in oneself and stay "aggressive".' Forehand was potent for once, executed some nice volleys and droppers. Nice match against a pretty good player in T. Babos.
Surfaces make a difference, so if this stuff suits Mona then she'll have a chance next round too, although it will be tough. Apparently Babos has a reputation for some colourful Hungarian swearing and I guess Mona made her do some of that today.
