Re: US Open Series 2014

I think she will be good this year. Hope she can reach the second week for the first time.

Re: US Open Series 2014

Going into the hard court season with a title win must be a completely different feeling for Mona. As some others said she never seemed to be happier and more relieved after a title win than at Bastad.
Mona obviously should take a lot of confidence from it and hopefully in the deep of her heart she will not be too satisfied about this unexpected win.
Her schedule is not exactly packed in the next few weeks with qualis in Cincinati and New Haven (?). Most probably she will spend a lot of time on the practice court inbetween the tournaments. So everything is a little different compared to the previous seasons.
Hard court is a good surface for her but a different and more aggressiv style of play will be needed to be successful.
After all I`m carefully optimistic that the "new Mona" will be able to manage the transition and show up with some good results. We`ll see.

Re: US Open Series 2014

I'm hoping for some good results in America. She seems to be really confident and mentally good. Can't wait for these tournaments!

● Barthel ● Bertens ● Andreescu ● Alexandrova ● Vekic ●

Re: US Open Series 2014

I'm so excited to see her on HC tbh. I'm sure we all feel the same.

Hopefully we can watch her at all before the U.S. Open.

Re: US Open Series 2014

Her kind of special friends Putintseva and Beck shouldn`t cause to much of a problem. Mona clearly beat them both in their last encounters. Hard to say something about Oudin.
Under normal circumstances IŽd say that`s a very doable draw for her.

Re: US Open Series 2014

She should win without much trouble but then again this is Mona. Everything can happen.

Re: US Open Series 2014

She has to qualify here, I think this is a good draw for her if she plays like in Bastad.

Re: US Open Series 2014

Barthel def. Putintseva 64 62

Good start for Mona!
Some problems when she had to serve for the set/match but was was able to hold in the end, good serving it seems, should beat Beck as well and qualify here!!
