Re: 2017 Road to Melbourne
She shouldn't have any trouble against Jo. Probably will be around 1 & 1. Jo didn't have any power last time I saw her a year or two ago. Mona should be hitting winners left and right. Kind of an old school player, smart but doesn't have the shots. Maybe she's improved a bit, I honestly didn't even expect Jo to beat Claudia (and Mona would beat her comfortably too) but then again Claudia has had some kind of injury which has meant she hasn't played matches in a long time. I would back NZers Paige Hourigan and Rosie Cheng to beat Jo- and neither could beat Mona. Paige does have the forehand power to be dangerous mind you and Rosie seems to have some talent to develop. Well in my opinion Jo would be maybe the fourth or fifth best Kiwi girl, and really only Marina should have any chance against Mona.
