Quality win for Makarova. But I'm afraid she won't be able to get revenge for AO QF with this 1st serve percentage :(

Barthel is Top 20/15 material. But Makarova is damn good too. Remember this girl just reached the AO quarterfinals beating Serena Williams, Zvonareva and Kanepi.

Yes, Barthel beat a seed in the last round losing only 3 games in the process. But so did Makarova.

Well forgive him, as a fellow Jankovic fan in hate mode he was getting escited and confused. Itīs rare these days that JJ loses a 2nd round match, usually only when she had a bye in round one. :sad:

2-3 good tournaments from Makarova and that's all. Eh... :sad:

Mona has weak serve today. One lose not blight her chances to be in TOP 20/TOP 15 in the nearest future.
GL in next tournament :hug:

P.S. I really like Mona's game, she is a player to watch, I'm just :tape: with people predicting she is a Top 20 material after beating Jelena who is in a big slump. Be realistic. That's all! :wavey:

I think beating JJ had little to do with it. More that she played Lisicki, and Azarenka two out of three times competitive and won Hobart beating five players ranked between 25 and 40 easily.

You['re a fan of Makarova, do you know why she didn't play anything between AO and IW?

How long is she on the Tour? How many players have you seen rocking the Tour in the first year and then just disappearing between the 30. and 100. place. What about Kanepi? She is a Top 10 for sure for like two years...and? As I said, I like Mona's game a lot! But she is far, far away from being a consistant Top 20 player. I hope she will...but don't get carried away so soon.

I was really looking forward to seeing Barthel potentially play Sharapova in the Last 16!

How come? Makarova won more points on first and second serve, had more break chances, converted more break chances, made 3 DF's while Mona made 5...and won like 20 points more :confused:

Makarova looked awful in her IW loss. Very inconsistent player. But a lefty with good angles. It wouldnt shock me if she won Wimbledon one day.

Like Jankovic, Ivanovic, Lisicki, Goerges, Cibulkova, Schiavone, Kuznetsova, Peng, Pavlyuchenkova and many many other players, who are/were successful enough to enter the top twenty (or better), but still are beatable by nearly everybody on a bad day. ;)

Disappointing loss. Saw Makarova as a mere stepping stone to an eventual Mona dust up with 'Pova in the 4th round. Mona is a far better talent.........

It's not going to be a smooth flat line to the top 20. There are going to be bumps. Didn't she lose qualies in Doha or Dubai. It's going to happen (for awhile.) And losing to Makarova isn't that bad (sometimes.) Consistency is another thing to be learned.

Mona is a little hyped for sure, but she's a good player. on the other hand Makarova isn't bad too, and of course someone who beats Serena can beat Barthel too.
