Re: 2015 US Open Series

Mona is not on the MD lists of Cincinnati and New Haven, but there's still the opportunity that she'll play Qualifying there.

Good luck Mona

Re: 2015 US Open Series

Indeed, best possible draw, should win that match for sure and then hopefully a good performance against (probably) Petkovic...

Re: 2015 US Open Series

Good start for Mona, Zhao was the perfect draw obviously but stats and score look good as well!
I would love to see her beating Petkovic also but thatīs quite unlikely but who knows, hope she can show a good match!!!

Re: 2015 US Open Series

Mona played quite well in parts. When she swings freely you often get to see moments of absolute brilliance. But most of the time she performs with the handbrake on unfortunately.

She served better today compared to her recent matches, but itís obvious to me that she could easily add at least 10 kph on her first serve.

I donít expect anything other than a routine loss against Petkovic.

Re: 2015 US Open Series

Nice easy start taking advantage of her good draw. Petkovic will be much tougher but maybe that will help Mona to play freely.

She will play the first match on Center Court today (11 AM local time, 8:00 PM CET) against Petkovic and the 3rd match (doubles with Lisicki).

I hardly remember Mona winning a match against a higher ranked German player. I guess it was against Lisicki (2 ?) years ago somewhere on the US Tour. It feels like light years ago.
In terms of consistency, determination and will Andrea is the vastly superior player to Mona. So she`s the clear favorite to me.
Low hopes but of course the match has to be played first.

2 times against Kerber back in 2012 and 2013 and against Lisicki at RG, where Lisicki has retired during the match.
Last year she won against Beck in Nuremberg where Beck was ranked 30 places higher than her.
