Well she got through the first round of $25K Valladolid this week. Beat the German girl Etzel in 3 tight sets. Good to get through a tough one, but I didn't think it was going to be that hard.
Next up is an 18 year old Spanish girl called Irene Rehberger, ranked 609. Never heard of her before, but she recently made both a $10K final and SF. Also, several weeks ago she pushed the young Romanian, Mihaela Buzarnescu (Monique's recent rival in the Spanish $25K's), 7-6 in the third. So obviously Rehberger can play, but Mon should be too experienced and strong for her. Let's see, because this is a very kind bottom half of the draw for Mon to get through!
