Re: 2014 Fed Cup

Very nice hold of serve under pressure now though.
I have the feeling she forces herself unneededly. With a bit more patience in these points she wins clearly IMO.

Re: 2014 Fed Cup

Maybe you shouldn't be posting these optimistic scores, because she let herself be broken again. ;-)
Some very good shots by Nara, but she was handed the chance.

Re: 2014 Fed Cup

4th setpoint taken: 7-6 Bertens
Strong play by Kiki, she should just also trust her stability a little bit more.

Re: 2014 Fed Cup

Kiki saves 2 breakpoints and holds in the 1st game of the 2nd set

She is playing well, Nara is nagging her with some lobs but she manages really well. And she really has an attractive game, she has played some sublime shots

Re: 2014 Fed Cup

Kiki lost 2nd set 46 and was down *1-3 30-40 in the 3rd, but once again she has fought back!

With a lucky netcord volley she is now leading 43*! C'mon!

Re: 2014 Fed Cup

This was too much

Well done Kiki
That would have been so frustrating for her if she'd lost the match after those MP's.
Nara is a good player and such a fighter as well. When winning her WTA title in Rio, I think she had some really tough and long matches which she won. So a really good win for Kiki to start her European clay season
