Really she's been another player since stretching Pova at the FO.
I disagree. She's had a terrible US summer for instance. She's always been capable of playing top 20 tennis, but usually only for 3-4 weeks a year, the rest of the year she's just another top 50 player. If she can maintain her current form for most part of the season, then she'll become another player.
My only concern about this match is whether or not Monica has had enough time to get over her flight from China and adapt the the very different conditions, especially temperturewise, in Australia. This is not a given. But providing Monica is ready to play this is a match she should win pretty routinely. Must say though, I would have been more confident if Monica was given another day before playing this match. As it is, I am still a little nervous.
