Kirsten Flipkens back on track

After a year with back problems, Kirsten Flipkens (10-01-1986) finally shows her talent again..

She won the Wimbledon and US Open juniors title in 2003 and ended that same year on number one...

Let's hope she can play injury free this year and reach the top-100.

The season did start quite well for her...

Belfort (US$ 25.000)
1R : (7) FLIPKENS (BEL) def (WC) Guisard (FRA) : 6-1, 6-3
2R : (7) FLIPKENS (BEL) def (Q) Siegemund (GER) : 6-1, 7-5
QF : (7) FLIPKENS (BEL) def (2) Oprandi (ITA) : 7-5, 6-1
SF : (7) FLIPKENS (BEL) def (3) Savchuk (UKR) : 7-5, 6-4
F : (7) FLIPKENS (BEL) lost to (4) Barrois (GER) : 2-6, 6-3, 6-7(6)

Capriolo (US$ 25.000)
1R : FLIPKENS (BEL) def Gabba (ITA) : 7-6(5), 6-0
2R : FLIPKENS (BEL) lost to (LL) Zec-Peskiric (SLO) : 4-6, 5-7

Antwerpen (US$ 600.000)
1R : (WC) FLIPKENS (BEL) lost to Golovin (FRA) : 1-6, 6-7(3)

Las Palmas (US$ 25.000)
1R : (7) FLIPKENS (BEL) def (Q) Guisard (FRA) : 5-7, 6-4, 6-3
2R : (7) FLIPKENS (BEL) def Kurhajcova (SVK) : 7-5, 6-0
QF : (7) FLIPKENS (BEL) def (Q) Fedossova (FRA) : 4-6, 6-4, 6-3
SF : (7) FLIPKENS (BEL) def (5) Rezai (FRA) : 4-6, 6-3, 6-2
F : (7) FLIPKENS (BEL) def (6) Kudryavtseva (RUS) : 6-1, 6-4

Gran Canaria (US$ 25.000)
1R : FLIPKENS (BEL) def Gehrlein (GER) : 7-5, 7-6(4)
2R : FLIPKENS (BEL) def Rybarikova (SLV) : 2-6, 6-2, 6-4
QF : FLIPKENS (BEL) def (5) Beygelzimer (UKR) : 1-6, 6-4, 6-2
SF : FLIPKENS (BEL) lost to (WC) Serna (SPA) : 5-7, 2-6

What I don't like is that she always starts slow in a match. I think that's what she has to work on, she already has a great fighting spirit.

Flipper

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Wow! She's moving up the ranking really fast. Hope to see her soon as a at least top 50 player!

It's great because Kirsten is a talented girl but she didn't have the chance too show itr cuz of all her injuries. Now she finally seems to be back on track with these small victories.

Witht that said, if you find this thread nothing, don't come in it.

Allez.
