Apparently she said the injury did not bother her at all, but thats probably a standard response by many players. Im hoping Mona lets her win about 3 games

OT: Mona not playing Dubai? She's not on the entry list:

http://www.dubaidutyfreetennischampi...r-Landing.aspx


Yet, from her website Dubai is on her schedule. I guess we'll find out next week.

In general i think that Wozniacki is not a good matchup for Mona. But let's see how she does against Cirstea first. But normally i think Sorana plays too brainless for Woz.

But anyway a clean-hitting Mona can beat anyone except Vika and Serena in this tournament.
There is no need to describe Wozniacki`s game we all know how she plays. I`d say she`s the best average player on the tour, has got some fighting spirit and is very solid.
But it actually is not very difficult to overpower her.

Julia also had lost 2 matches before she figured out how she has to play Wozniacki.
And Mona has even more weapons in her arsenal than Julia has.
So for me it`s just a matter of time when Mona will beat her.
I don`t know whether she can do it already today.
It will be not as easy as it was in the match against Angie.
Mona played a lot of matches in the last few weeks and I don`t know how fit and hungry for more successes she still is.
When she keeps her level of play of the last time imo she has a very decent chance to take this.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Patience will be key. If she goes into the match knowing what to expect, knowing that lots of shots that feel great coming off the racket will come back and doesn't get irritated or hectic because of that, she will win.

This sounds a little bit like Hannelore.
But you`re right, staying patient and not getting tense will be a key factor for Mona.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

Hisagi
I don't think Mona is ready to play against pushers/good defenders.

Re: Mona Barthel - Volume 2

I think this was rather about Mona not being able to adjust her game to the wind and the circumstances than anything else. She has to learn how to handle this better.

Anyway not a bad tournament for Mona.. Today there is an annoying wind - very tough to play against a pusher
