She is already very good, but she needs to understand her ideal game, and then how to work to develop that. At this stage she seems very confused about how she ought to play the game, and unless she resolves that she will remain at this level, which is very high, honestly she's world class considering she can play all the slams and is ranked in the top 50, but she's not quite truly elite level and I don't feel she has fully harnessed her potential yet. She needs a clear picture of what she needs to become, and then she can develop a clear plan of how to get there.

If she was to reach the top 20 this year for the first time, I think that would be an excellent year. She was ranked 23 once before and I don't think it's beyond her at all if she gets things right.

Anyway, hope everyone's had/having a wonderful Christmas holiday.
+1 + Mona needs to stay healthier than last year.
Then I`m quite confident that her efforts will pay out.

I wish you all a merry Christmas🎄🎅🎁. It is my first Christmas at home since 5 years and I am enjoying it before heading to Australia. Every day I am feeling a bit better and I hope I can recover fully before my first tournament.
OMG, that means she is still sick.

There seems to be something wrong with Mona’s immune system. It doesn’t take that long normally to recover from a gastro-intestinal disease, and in general you don’t get sick that often, even as a competitive sportswoman.

I am starting to lower my expectations for the Australian season.

Anyway, get well soon and have a Merry Christmas, Mona!

@kiriosh.

I don’t expect a major improvement, to be honest. It simply won’t happen as long as she doesn’t get aware of her true potential and fully commit to it.

Ranking-wise she’ll probably move up a few places, because this year her off-season preparation has not been disrupted by a major injury. But as I mentioned, I don’t see a general change in her development.

Leider musste ich meine Teilnahme bei den Deutschen Meisterschaften absagen. Ich habe mir eine Magen-Darm Erkrankung zugezogen. Mir geht es langsam besser und ich hoffe, dass ich mich schnell erhole.
Ich sehe mich aber leider noch nicht diese Woche Tennis auf Wettkampf Niveau zu spielen.
Es tut mir wirklich leid für alle die mich gerne bei den deutschen Meisterschaften gesehen hätten. Ich hoffe, es klappt ein anderes Mal.

Can you guess where I am?


It seems that Mona is having her off-season preparation in Mallorca.

Let's hope she finally gets rid of that Pushthel Demon.
