Re: Mona Barthel
Very nice post , Hisagi.
Some words on the articles.
Mona was 11 at that time and was the number one in Germany in her age class. She won the Northern German championships without dropping a set.
Unlucky there is missing the rest of the article. The headline is pretty promising -
"Triumph of sportmanship"
Mona at the age of 11. Dramatic headline once again
announcing the final of the Sparkassencup at her home town Neumünster against a girl named Friederike Zunke. Mk 27 surely will know her.
According the article Mona (surprisingly) beat a player in the semifinal who was three years elder and 1400(!?) places ranked above her in the rankings.
Interesting is her distintive backhand motion and face expression while stroking already at that age.
