I am sorry Petey but I absolutely agree. At least 1 Bagel. I think 0 and 2.
This girl is a freak. Her concentration is better than half of the Top 10 She is so focused and has such great timing and technique + footwork and strength that although she is tonnes smaller than the other girls she is able to hit every single ball as hard as she can, making no errors and guiding the ball towards the corners. She also has an extremely high 1st Serve percentage. Just watch some of her points vs Naiktha. BTW, Naiktha hits a much bigger ball than I remember. In some ways she reminds me of Li Na

Oh an BTW Petey, although she made the AO SF she had a very easy draw and lost to Fett, who would get absolutely massacred by Bellis

Kim's pretty mentally strong too, I'm sure she'll lose but I'm predicting no bagels

Beautiful striker of the ball. Thanks for the pics.

There's more to life than just being happy.

Re: Kimberly Birrell

Wimbledon

(8)Kristina Schmiedlova (SVK) v Usue Maitane Arconada (USA)
Helen Ploskina (UKR) v Kimberly Birrell (AUS)
Renata Zarazua (MEX) v Q
(11)Iona Loredana Rosca (ROU) v Katie Swan (GBR)

If she manages to get past Ploskina, Schmiedlova will be very tough

Good win had to save some BPs at 44 in the second and went down a break early in the 3rd as well
