Mona's Last Stands in 2013 (Linz & Luxembourg)

Ok guys,

let's just forget about the last half year and hope for a decent ending of the season.

I am still hoping for the "Return of Peak Mona".

(This is not likely to happen, i know.)

Anyway, Mona probably won't be seeded in Linz, since she only is the number 12 of the entry list at the moment.

Svitolina played some good tournaments in July, before and after that her result were really average, Suarez Navarro indoors also isn´t that great, then Zakopalova/Görges/Vekic..good draw to make the SF here but Mona wasn´t impressive at all herself so wouldn´t surprise me if she would lose in 1st round, max. 2nd round already..but can´t complain about the draw here at least..we´ll see which Mona appears, it´s indoors so her serve should be at least a bit more effecive again..

Re: Mona's Last Stands in 2013 (Linz & Luxembourg)

Given this starting field, which is weaker than the one of the Paris Indoors, Mona can win or lose to anyone. So the draw doesn't matter in my opinion. It all depends on whether she can regain some form just before the season comes to an end. I am not that optimistic in this regard.

R1 will be tough, for Svitolina is a very talented player.

since Donetsk:

won against: Arruabarrena, Cepelova, Cibulkova, Nara
lost to: Schmiedlova, Knapp, McHale, Arruabarrena, Ivanovic (36 06), Vinci (26 26)

yes, that´s average, at least for me

but doesn´t matter, Mona can lose to anyone anyway, we´ll see

Mona you are a fascinating character. Would you mind winning at times, just to make your fans happier?

We can add Svitolina to the list.

Does she idolize early Mary Pierce? Just asking.

Re: Mona's Last Stands in 2013 (Linz & Luxembourg)

Horror show between two jaded players as expected.
She didn't care about the result throughout the match and simply tried everything left in her arsenal.
Squeaky Svitoli was just so eager as to beat this kind of an opponent, so good for her.
I guess regaining the movement that she lost some time back will be the key to the improvement.
And more possible changes - new racket, stringing tighter, finding a spouse to replace mother or whatever.
A sad season after all.
