Up next the winner of Kalabina vs Barrois, both Q's.
The match against Barrois will be tough one. Barrois was a former
top 100 player from 2008 to 2011. However, Monica has defeated higher
ranked, younger, and tougher players. We are very confident that she
will defeat either one of her oponents.

Looking forward to a final in this tournament against Minelli. Wining
this tournament will be a great start of the 2013 season and proper
preparation for the Australian tournaments that she will play.

Good luck to her. GO MONICA GO....

Re: Puerto Rican hope Monica Puig

Well let me try to explain to you todays match.

Puig started very well with a break and she was leading *1-0 but broken back early by Salkic from 30-0. After that 2 game she had again break chances but she wasted with ues. This demoralized her and reflected to her game and got broken and lost first set 6-3.

In the 2nd set she started better compared to 1st set. She had early break again and was leading set *2-1 and got broken back again. She was so determined and break Salkic again and was leading *4-3. Then set turned to 6-6 with Puigs ues..

Salkic started with a mini but Puig took 4 points and led the tie break 4-1 and took the set. This gave her big morale.

3rd set she made lots of aces and big serves. Salkic became tired and she couldn't find solution to Puigs big hits.

She shouted many times "Allez" and "Vamos"

She needs to be calm on court. This will be the key point against Barrois...
