Mona was 1-4* down in 1st set, and 3-5* in 2nd, but she win.

In 2R Victoria... :scared:

Feb 13th, 2012, 04:36 PM
Garcia led 42 in first set and then 53 in 2nd set.
She wasted 1 SP at 65 in first tie-break :sad:

Feb 13th, 2012, 04:38 PM
Mona :yeah:

Feb 13th, 2012, 04:38 PM
Mona :yeah:, nice fighting spirit :), in earlier times she had lost that kind of matches.

Feb 13th, 2012, 04:39 PM
Too bad this match wasn't on the show court. Would have liked to have seen this match between two talented young players. Looking forward to the dust-up with Victoria.

Feb 13th, 2012, 04:39 PM

Sorry Caro :(

Rats. I do like Caroline. But Mona is cool, too.

Feb 13th, 2012, 05:04 PM
Few. Thought mona had lost it many times.

Feb 13th, 2012, 05:05 PM
Is Garcia the most mentally weak player in the top 200 right now? All these chokes. :help:

Feb 13th, 2012, 05:06 PM
She's still learning to play with the big girls would be my guess.

Feb 13th, 2012, 05:28 PM
Mona :bounce:
Well done! Take a revenge :D

Feb 13th, 2012, 05:29 PM
Mona :yeah:

Sombrerero loco

Feb 13th, 2012, 08:32 PM
Mona would have to have been more easy! :shrug:
good luck with Vika! :kiss::kiss:

Caro :hug::hug:

Feb 13th, 2012, 08:33 PM
Congrats Mona - GL against Vika

Feb 13th, 2012, 08:36 PM
What's with the acne ? Is it the same acne as Safina's ?

Feb 13th, 2012, 08:37 PM
Great fightback from Barthel and canīt judge the performance with a talented youngster without pictures, but it is probably time we all (me included) step off the hype train for a moment. Itīs for the good, if Vika ends Barthelīs week early. She has been playing a lot of tennis lately and has a lot of new stuff to deal with like the growing expectations, the growing attention, the additional travel, and a total of 19 matches already. That is probably the most matches by any player in the top 200 this year.

Feb 13th, 2012, 09:46 PM
Another solid win :yeah:

Feb 13th, 2012, 09:50 PM
I wish Garcia could toughen up mentally. She seems to choke quite a lot. :(

Feb 13th, 2012, 11:16 PM
medical time out for Mona before second TB, any chances against Aza
