Wow, 3 faves in that quarter of the draw.....Venus, Mona and Garbine. Looking forward to Mona and Venus in the 2nd, if they get by. Hope there are some decent streams.

GL to Mona in the strongest part of the season for her. SF points to defend here.

Tough draw but then again almost any draw is tough for her.

Meusburger is weaponless but she is quite consistent.

Re: Mona in Australia (Auckland, Hobart, Australian Open)

The starting field in Auckland is much stronger than last year, so it was likely that Mona would get a tough draw. Venus in R2 would be tough.

Re: Mona in Australia (Auckland, Hobart, Australian Open)

if she loses to Meusburger on hard...
2nd round is a must here, can´t see her beating Venus in 2nd round but who knows, you never know which Venus shows up but not an easy draw for Mona obviously, but as I said, good 1st round at least!!!

Re: Mona in Australia (Auckland, Hobart, Australian Open)

Well, the OOP is out for the 30th and Mona got Court 4 against Yvonne. So, likely no stream. Venus is up, as well, and gets prime time on the main court. Hopefully, they both win so we can see them matchup.

Re: Mona in Australia (Auckland, Hobart, Australian Open)

Meusburger should be easy considering the fact that it is beginning of the season. Next is probably Venus, so I hope she will do her best.

● Barthel ● Bertens ● Andreescu ● Alexandrova ● Vekic ●

Viola!!! Mona's match with Yvonne will be streamed. Earlier in the day her match didn't pop up on the grid. Now, it has. Enjoy.....

Re: Mona in Australia/New Zealand (Auckland, Hobart, Australian Open)

Mona is pretty inept in the lst set, losing such 6-4. Erred herself into losing such with errors that were clearly unforced. All Yvonne had to do was keep her soft returns between the lines and allow Mona to donate her points, Mona obliging.

Re: Mona in Australia/New Zealand (Auckland, Hobart, Australian Open)

A flashy winner followed by a rain of errors. Her serve doesn't help her at all and she doesn't look competitive at all too. Same old Mona in this match. Nothing changed.
