Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

6-7 for Oprandi...
Let's just copy/paste what we wrote exactly one year ago after exactly the same set... That's getting seriously frustrating.

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

She won. 9 aces 4 dfs. Didn't face a break point in the last two sets. Ground game was off in the first half. Got better as the match progressed.

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

Not terrible stuff from Kim given how rusty she was. She just needs a lot of match practice. This was a very important win I think, and she looked really happy afterwards. Anyone understand what she said in the on-court interview? Kim needs at least two more matches I think before heading into Wimbledon, especially since she can face anyone in the first round. Errani (presumably) will hopefully give Kim more rhythm than Oprandi.

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

phew, first set loss after 5-2 up = clearly no match rythm but from the 2nd set on it was getting better! some nice points but also some bad ones, the serve was really good !

I don't remember everything she said in the on court interview but one of the things was that it's really nice to play close to home, many friends and family can come and watch her play, but during the tournament she stays in Rosmalen, she's not going home everytime. Tonight, after the interviews and press conference, she'll watch the football (the Netherlands are playing a crucial match in the European Championships)
