Re: 2015 Grass Season

Because of the latest withdrawals, it's just a short grass season this year for Mona. I hope she will be healthy in Wimbledon and has a little bit more success

Re: 2015 Grass Season

I also don't have any expectations and hope she will be healthy. Try to win a match at Wimbledon, girl

Re: 2015 Grass Season

Mona's section of the draw:

(7) Eugenie Bouchard BYE
Alison Riske v. Alizé Cornet
Mona Barthel v. Belinda Bencic
BYE (12) Madison Keys

Don't think about winning or losing, just enjoy the competition and your time on a tennis court!

Good luck!

Re: 2015 Grass Season

Well, she just has to Hit 27 aces like Lisicki, seems to work against Bencic

I just hope Mona can find some rhythm for Wimbledon and the upcoming tournaments.

Re: 2015 Grass Season

Go figure.......Mona's match with Belinda is scheduled today on Center court, but no Center court matches will be streamed, but streams are available for matches on Courts 1 and 4.

Re: 2015 Grass Season

Mona lost 4-6 6-7 today

Annoying defeat especially because she had many chances to win the second set. But at least she is able to show competitive tennis against a player with a lot of matches on this surface already.

Disappointing in the clutch moments.
She clearly played some decent tennis, but not at the critical times, unfortunately.

Re: 2015 Grass Season

It's of course a bit annoying that she couldn't convert on those SPs, but i think it was quite a good mini-comeback from Mona after that little break from tennis. I didn't expect such a close match.

I hope she will somehow win a match at Wimbledon.

Re: 2015 Grass Season

bette result than expect, of course, she really should have won the 2nd set but happy that she is healthy and at least showed a decent match (at least the result is ok, I could not watch it), needs some luck at Wimbledon now to get a win.

Re: 2015 Grass Season

This is bitter. It's hard to say, but I have to go with Kerber in R2. I could just cry!
