Mona Another good match. And a great chance against Vögele/Siegemund.

Re: 2015 Linz and Lux

plays Vögele next
Vögele was not great today but we´ll see, Vögele can serve well and has a solid game when she is on, hope Mona will be ready for this match, she needs to play offensive and her serve has to work...

Re: 2015 Linz and Lux

Couldn't watch any match this week because the timing of the matches sucks so much for me How she is playing? Is she aggressive? And did her serve actually improve? Anyhow, praying she wins it all. Let's go, Mona.

Re: 2015 Linz and Lux

If she can simplify all of her strokes like the serve and keep the long swing for put away shots, she'd be great next year.
She's in better form in the SF at odds of 7:3 imo.

Re: 2015 Linz and Lux

I could not watch Mona’s match today. When I came to know about her win I started to look forward to watch the replay, but it’s not possible due to technical problems of Tennis TV (once again!!). Thank you very much, guys!

I only saw the last game on youtube and noticed that, in those final moments, she had to deal with two bad calls against her and nonetheless she was able to serve out the match.

So very well done, Mona!

So whatever happens this weekend, the season will end on a positive note. Finishing a complicated season, during which she had to deal with a lot of bad luck, inside the TOP 50 is quite good.

Stefi with her intuitive and rather unorthodox game style is surely going to be a tricky opponent for Mona tomorrow.

I just hope she can enjoy her last one or two matches of this season.

Good luck!

Some truth in here, Mona in general is hardly taking place in the medias. Although that might change in the semifinale on Eurosport I could find short video clips of nearly every German player`s matches in Luxembourg, but not a single one of Mona.

I like both players. At least service motion-wise both are pretty unorthodox.
Voegele imo is a very pretty and interesting looking girl probably not in the current and established sense. At times her facial expressions when she`s playing are almost "tragic".
Being much more light-footed and having very different strenghths for some reasons attitude-wise she reminds me at Karin Knapp.

The outcome is very hard to tell, both players have too many unknown deepths, so everything can happen.
If there where some hopes they are exclusively relying on Mona`s "whatever I do or omit to do, I`ll win a tournament every year"-karma.

Re: 2015 Linz and Lux

Barthel def. Vögele 62 63

1st set was really good, Vögele started good also but started to make more errors soon, Mona herself was playing with controlled aggression, good serve, backhand dtl worked, 2nd set Vögele continued to make erorrs and Mona got a bit too passive, in the backhand rallies she was not brave enough anymore to go down the line (always a bad sign IMO) and her serve was gone also but in the important situations she really hit good serves which helped her at *53!

I hope that she will be more aggressive again in the final, push Mona is not what we want to see!

Re: 2015 Linz and Lux

Shaky finish but took advantage of a lovely draw and finds herself in another final which is great news for her.

Re: 2015 Linz and Lux

Expected easy win over Voegele. Mona had played flawless until 6:2 5:1, but in the end she suddenly started to be nervous and PushMona was back. Fortunately she finished without really big problems.
Van Uytwank will be a real test. I think: 50-50

Stefanie does have a certain ethereal charm to her. She's certainly pretty but not in a bombshell way, more in an artistic way, and this probably contributes to your impression of her. For some reason the media generally didn't notice how pretty she is, which is probably also due to her lack of self-promotion and the slightly unusual kind of beauty she possesses. It's much easier to notice a girl who is either a sexy bombshell or an ever-smiling cheerleader type, and Stefanie is neither.

Mona is having a great week, the surface suits her, although she was clearly nervous in the last 10 minutes of the match. It's a great opportunity for another title, although who knows what will happen against either Doi or Van Uytvanck. Still, you'd definitely take that as a potential final opponent if someone offered it to you.

As usual you find much better English words than me to express my thoughts, Howard.
Due to work I was hoping to watch a third set right now...but I`m fine with that too.
Doi and van Uitvank seem both to be on fire. From what I`ve seen so far Doi is returning and moving extremely well so I`d prefer van Uitvank as her opponent in the final.

Re: 2015 Linz and Lux

OMG yessss She is working hard to improve Great to see that. At least she proved that she can win small titles despite all the bad luck this season. Hopefully next season she takes the next step and do much better in the bigger events. Staying healthy and getting fitter is crucial for sure.

Mona

The last 3 games though... Mona was starting to shit herself and at the same time Stefie started to hit much better, Mina almost completely got her back

Those are what I call "boyish feline features". Boy or girl, such kind would be considered good looking irrespective of sex.
Usually they are susceptive and also hot-blooded introverts in my experience.

On topic, it's hard to predict the final because of the two inert semifinals played today. One thing's sure pushing won't be enough tomorrow.

Sure it's a good sign that she has shown she's not afraid of making a change.
