Hopefully her knee is fine and she can quickly find her game after the little break.
Bertens and Ivanovic in the first round are anything else but easy.
When she can get past R 3 her possible opponents look beatable even until the Semifinals.

I hope Annika will beat Bertens (imho she should be able to) and Mona will beat Annika. Ivanovic isn't that much of a threat I think, Mona struggles more against crafty players, Ivanovic will give her pace to work with. R4 and the QF are probably the easiest you could get. It will of course all depend on whether Mona can again show the composure she had so far this season, but if she does, this is great opportunity for her to score a lot of points.
I think any draw in which Mona doesn't have to play Azarenka, Sharapova or Kvitova before QF is a good one for her. When she is on she should have her chances against all the other players but one offday could lead to an early exit. So it's always the same old story with Mona. The most dangerous opponent en route to a potential SF is for me Ana Ivanovic in contrast to other opinions here. Their match in Stuttgart with both players in a good condition was very competitive and could have gone either way.
Even though i see Bertens as the favourite against Beck i somehow have the feeling that we will see a match between the new teammates Mona and Annika.
Not a bad draw for Mona, almost everything is possible!
But we´ll see, you never know with Mona and Ivanovic,Stosur and Co. aren´t easy opponents as well although they are surely beatable.
Hope that she wins her first match, Bertens or Beck should be beatable!!
