She lost to Sakkari in three sets winning the first. After the first set she was really bad. What's most disappointing is that she had a really good draw to the semi's.

After Rome everything has been a disappointment which is what I didn't expect after winning so many matches. I really thought she'd play more freely with more confidence...

Disappointing result, 1st serve stats look good, rest looks quite bad (incl tons of DFs), hope she can play better again in Bastad...

Tough first round, I hope she can find her good Bastad form again this year, but CSN is always a difficult match-up on clay.

Carla is tough opener yes, but Mona plays well she can win. Carla lost to Begu in Bucharest and Begu was struggling to win matches, even in ITFs.

Bastad is also one of her favourite tournaments so I hope that will help

Kontaveit withdrew. Mona plays Larsson instead. Rematch of the 2015 final

I am not too confident about her match against Larsson (H2h 3-2, Mona lost the two last matches) but I hope that Mona can prove me wrong

Once upon a time I've never thought she would have trouble to beat her once-breakfast Larsson someday and her once-lunch Bertens would have a better career. Everything flows.

Re: Gstaad, Bastad and American Summer Hard Court Swing 2017

Bastad R1: Mona Barthel d. Johanna Larsson 6-7(3), 7-5, 7-6(4)


That should be great for Mona's confidence. The match was a mess but it's good that she won it, giving the circumstances.

Nice hug between the two as well

Thankfully she doesn't have a singles match tomorrow. She has doubles with Johanna tomorrow, second on centre. Hope she won't be too tired
