Kirsten Flipkens reaches top-200

Last week, Kirsten won, as a qualifier, the 50.000 dollar tournament in Innsbruck...

Her new ranking this week was 202...

Today she won her first round match in the 75.000 dollar tournament in Modena against Marta Domachowska : 6-3,7-5

This means she'll be in the top-200 next week!

Her win in the Fed Cup against Anabel Medina-Garrigues must have given her a great boost of confidence!

Keep going girl...

Next round, she'll play against Conchita Martinez-Granados, who replaces Flavia Penetta in the main draw!

Good luck girl!

Are the Belgians now predicting how long Kirsten is going to pass Els?.
With this kind of great result, I think she might get into Austrlian Open MD to finally debut in slams at 18, kind of late though for a World Junior Champion. But still, hope the best for her since we do need more players with variety in the game of tennis.

Actually, Pous-Tio was the lucky loser, replacing Pennetta in the main draw. She lost against Martinez-Granados.

Anyway, good luck Kirsten tomorrow against the Spaniard!

Flipper made her debut in the slams at Wimbledon, with the wildcard she earned as junior winner the previous year

Well done Kirsten, and she should take out Martinez-Granados as well

Is Martinez-Granados the one she lost against in Fedcup?

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Right. I knew it was someone who could be mistaken for one of the top Spaniards. But it was Sanchez and not Martinez

Kristen A very good performance. I think beating Domachowska is already a great accomplishment!
