Honestly? It's asking an awful lot. Bartoli won't be at all easy. Bartoli is a player who very rarely loses her 1st match in a tournament. She is also someone who is known to frequently crush lower ranked players. To beat her would take a great effort. It's possible of course but it would be a huge upset and it would require Monica to be at her very best throughout the match.
