Re: Mona Barthel

Merry Christmas to you all!

I hope Mona will be able to stabilize her game in 2013. I dont expect too much because somehow i have a feeling that 2014 might be her year.

By the way, does anyone know how she prepared for the new season? With her homecoach Maik Schürbesmann?

Anyway, i am looking forward to see her again.

I was watching Mona's style of play closely when she played against Mayr-Achleitner in the german league. It was for me plain to see that she uses a semi-western grip on her forehand which normally should allow her to make good defensive shots. So i dont think that her grip is the problem, maybe her lack of flexibilty in her wrist. She doesnt have the kind of wrist acceleration like Kerber has, especially when it comes to defense. I also think she looses some of her determination when she gets under pressure. Then she often starts slicing on her forehand what makes no sense to me. But i am sure she will improve over the next two years on her little weaknesses.

On the whole i would describe Mona as a pure natural swinger who can hit huge with effortless ease. When she is on she is always able to give her shots the right speed to make a winner. I have never seen so much talent in a female tennis player. Its really absurd!

But will she be successful (in terms of winning slams)? If she can build up the kind of determination and mental strength like Kerber has then clearly yes. But if she doesnt improve her mental abilities (maybe with the help of an experienced professional coach) she could become a tragic underachiever. In any case i will always admire her talent and enjoy watching her matches.
I forgot to welcome you. Sorry. Is Mona your 1st favorite player now? Good to see another Mona fan here.

I agree with you by the way. Great post. She obviously has a massive talent. Easily the most talented German on the tour. She can do anything with the tennis ball and she does that effortlessly. Probably some will laugh at me for saying this but I believe she is as talented as Kvitova or at least she is close to Petra in terms of raw talent.

I don't expect from her to win slams or become top 5 player to be honest but I hope she will have a great/good career with no major injuries. Mona is probably the best thing happened to womens tennis since 2011/2012. For me at least.

It's true There is only thing that Kvitova is bigger than her now - it is coach. I'm waiting only for travelling coach and stabilize her mentality.

Hi, thanks for welcoming me here.

And yes, she is my favorite player. I think she is extremely talented and seems to be a nice human being at the same time. But as you might know being nice can prevent you from being successful. Nonetheless i am hoping that she drew the right conclusions from her mostly unnecessary defeats that she suffered this year. If she did so then there will be a good chance that we will see a good season of Mona next year.

Given her pure talent i would assume that she should have a good chance of becoming a TOP-5-player and win a slam in the long run (not before 2014). But given the inconsistent nature of her game i also know that this might not happen. I think what she needs to fulfill her potential is an experienced coach who would be able to fix her lack of determination in critical moments and the little imperfections in her game (second serve, defensive forehand).

Anyway i hope she will have the joy and the success in tennis that she is looking for.

Re: Mona Barthel

It seems that Mona will not be seeded in Hobart because right now she is 9th on the players list there. The first eight players are ranked between 26 and 38 so at this moment she would miss the seeding list by a hair. But i also think that in the end it wont matter because the whole field of participants will be very even in Hobart.
