Well done Flipper! Now on a 10-match winning streak at WTA level. QF vs. Ivanovic.

Mallory

Just gave it away in the end. Has a lot of potential though. Effortless power.

Wow. Mallory has gotten REALLY good. A good fight against an in form player... give her a few more months of experience and she could be winning close matches like this.

Serena Williams ~ Maria Sharapova ~ Venus Williams ~ Jelena Dokic ~ Melanie Oudin ~ Christina McHale

Vandeweghe ~ Mattek-Sands ~ King ~ Hampton ~ Riske ~ Glatch ~ Brengle ~ Rogers ~ Stephens ~ Boserup ~ Davis ~ Keys ~ Lepchenko ~ Falconi ~ Chirico ~ Crawford ~ Gibbs ~ Pegula ~ Min ~ Townsend ~ Duval ~ Vickery ~ Bellis ~ Ahn

Mal

Her movement was lacking in this match in the 3rd set especially. Missed some smashes, showing signs of fatigue.

I do love her groundstrokes, and especially her BH. The path of her racket head with those strokes such precision. Still good job to qualify and get a win in the MD!

Good luck next round, Kirsten.

Yay, Kirsten! Not the best match she's played, but I love her playing style anyway.

Burdette is talented imo, she just needs more experience at this level. She has amazing power, and good touch too. Those smashes need a lot of work though.

Burdette would've probably won this if she hadn't sucked at the net so bad.

Good try Mal, hope you can learn from close matches like these. WTA matches are a whole new story for her, she just needs experience. GL in Luxembourg!!

Well done Kirsten, should have won it more easily. Her ability to retrieve balls and amazing touches got her the match.

Mallory will have a nice future if she keeps improving like she has.

Re: Linz 2r: (Q) Kirsten Flipkens d. (Q) Mallory Burdette 46 61 75

Reminds me a bit of the old Kerber in the sense that her groundstrokes look a bit weird, but find the court more often than you´d think. She plays fairly smart and can mix her game up, but to make real progress she´ll need to get in top physical shape.

I am not a fan of the direction a lot of Maria threads have taken over the last 12 months.
The undertone is very disappointing, aggressive and the comments are sometimes rude to a player just trying to earn a living, playing her hardest and having a good amount of success given her god given, natural talents.
You made the list: NEW President Bouchard, Cibulkova, Mladenovic, Wozniacki, Kerber, Cornet, Watson, Broady.
