Re: 2015 Summer Swing

Mona is still in doubles in Wimbledon but here is already the new thread

Let's hope Mona ends her losing streak in these tournaments.

Re: 2015 Summer Swing

There's few chances she'll defend her Slam title next week...

But GL to her

Re: 2015 Summer Swing

Bertens again, H2h 7-2 for Mona, good match up for Mona and Bertens with average results recently also, good chance to get a win here but you never know with Mona...I am curious to see how she would handle Siegemund on clay these days, I am somehow worried about that match more but her draw is totally fine in general, good luck!

Re: 2015 Summer Swing

I'm getting my nuclear goggles out in case she can finally lose her domina position over Bertens tomorrow.

Re: 2015 Summer Swing

She was the better player from start to finish. But she loses her cool as soon as she feels a little bit of pressure. Lead 3-1 in the first set, lead 3-0 in the TB, had chances for a 4-1 lead in the final set and these are only a few examples. She has all the tools to be a solid Top 30 player but her mentality lets her down too often. Thank God Bertens isn't any better, she hit 5 df in one service game at the end of the first set for example.

But this win was sooooo important for Mona!

Re: 2015 Summer Swing

Congrats Mona!

Important for her to get a win, qualitywise it was not good but at least she won it but with this kind of play it will be tough to go far here, even with a good draw like hers but she was far from impressive today, good for her that Bertens had some terrible misses, hope she can improve and gets some condfidence back!

Re: 2015 Summer Swing

I somehow missed that Mona was scheduled for today, so I started watching not before it was *4-3 in third set when she was choking heavily on her GPs. Thank god she finally won a match again!

I noticed she played with a lot of topspin on her forehand which should help her in the further course of the tournament.

Congrats, Mona!

She was so relieved when the match was over.
