Re: Mona's Summer (Bad Gastein, Bastad, Baku)

Interesting draw!
Pliskova had good clay results this year, dangerous opponent but beatable!
Tomlajanovic again in her section as well and Pennetta also!
we´ll see how it goes, some wins are possible for sure, good luck!!

Ja, es geht noch auf und ab.. Leider heute verloren, aber ich höre nicht auf daran zu glauben, dass jede Spielerin die mal Paris gewinnen konnte, am Ende irgendwann unter den Top 10 stehen wird.

Lost 4 & 4.

Serve didn't work, low 1st serve %, and while I found that she returned quite well, she made LOADS of errors afterwards. She started the macth quite well, returning well and you could see she was trying to be aggressive, but after a few games, she switched back to her sluggish self.

Re: Mona's Summer (Bad Gastein, Bastad, Baku)

No shame losing to Pliskova on clay but I expected a bit more!
Serve didn´t work great it seems, many DFs, only 2 aces, Pliskova had 7 aces and 1 DF only, that made the difference today as well, I think...
A shame that she couldnt keep her level after the early 4-2 lead in 1st set, I actually think that Pliskova is a good opponent for Mona but not when she makes tons of errors herself, still has to work a lot...

I hope for a better result in Bastad!!

Re: Mona's Summer (Bad Gastein, Bastad, Baku)

On her defense you have to mention that Mona recently had some pretty unlucky draws. At Birmingham and Wimbledon she fell very early to the later winners of the tournaments and Pliskova has shown not just at Nuremberg what an uncomfortable opponent for even much higher ranked players she can be.

Barthel/Klemenschits d. (3)Dabrowski/Rosolska, 3 & 1 in R1 of doubles.

Good that she's playing doubles. It can only do her good, and she needs match play.

Doubles QF: Ormaechea/Pfizenmaier d. Barthel/Klemenschits, 4 & 2.

It was *3-4 in set 1 when play was interrupted by the rain yesterday, looks like they lost the plot today.

Looks like Mona will be seeded 8th in Bastad. She'll probably get Kanepi or Görges in first round.

She got Martincova. I think this should be doable.

Interesting match, Tereza is in good form and usually is quite fiesty - the total opposite to Mona. Hopefully it won't be too difficult for Mona, auf gehts bb!
