So she's not out of the Top 40 for a long time? I remember someone saying that.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Congrats to Mona on her second and biggest WTA title! When I saw her live on the ITF circuit, I knew she was something special

Now lets see her improve on her second round performance at Doha!

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Mona

I'm amazed that she went so many times at the net and won so many points there today
When I think in Hobart we were laughing at her bad attemps at the net and her ridiculous volleys
What a turnover

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Nice win for Mona.

Errani is a very tough opponent. Mona couldn't play her favored "three shot-points". Good that she was able to stay strong. Great week!
I think on clay this would be a match-up that is not so good for Mona.

She has to improve her FH technique though.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

should get the seeding now for IW and Miami also, that´s important, she has some pts to defend as well (Miami 3rd round, Stuttgart QF) but still has good chances to reach top 20 soon, but u never know with Mona, so I am careful with predictions but it looks good right now

She can come to the net and she plays easy put away volleys nicely. When she is under pressure it's a different story.

I think her stats were something like 30/45, and some of her easy misses were close to get neckbreakers in this match.
Mona`s composure and her ability not to feel too sorry about the missed chances she had, especially in the second set was great and won her this match in the end.
I was a little surprised how well errani could keep herself in this match. What a fighter she is.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

I actually like Mona's net tactics because the aim was to take extra risk to prevent her opponent from getting into a rhythm (a good tactic against someone like Errani because the Italian is the kind of player who dramatically increases her chance of scoring points if she gets comfortable as the rallys become more predictable)

It's true that some of her attempts were a bit strange, however, I don't know how, but she still managed to turn those situations in her favour. It's true that she hit some amazing half volleys
