Re: Mona Barthel

Pretty up and down, she can be great at times and abysmal at other times, it all depends on whether she is "in the groove" at that moment.

She alternates between unplayable and unwatchable. I sympathise with her wholeheartedly, it's really difficult when you can't figure out how to stay in control of that fantastic level of play. When she plays at her peak level she is balancing on a knife edge, whereas top players have learned to turn that knife edge into a little balance beam which they can stand on, still requiring concentration of course.
