R1 Qualies:

Kirsten Flipkens (BEL) vs Nathalie Vierin (ITA)

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

well it could've been worse I guess, Vierin mostly plays on clay, so she has a (small) chance

good luck Kirsten

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

Kirsten won 6-0 6-4

She was down BP when serving for it, but she held it together Good win, her opponent is top 200 and these are matches she has to win if she wants to make top 150 this year, hopefully this will be a big confidence boost for her

Next up is the 23rd seed Tzipora Obziler of Israel who won 6-0 6-2 against Fritche.


Good Luck Kirsten, she has won the match she had to, now it is a seed she can go out with nothing to lose

That scoreline looks impressive but Helen's only 941st in the world

Have Kirsten & Tzipora ever played?

oh heehee,I didn't look her rank up, just assumed she got into qualifying on her rank but I guess she is a brit WC

Well Oblizer is number 135, so that is where Kirsten wants to be, If Kirsten plays her best I think she has a shot, Oblizer beat Vierin 6-3 1-6 7-5 in April and Kirsten just beat her in straight Obziler though is a lot older than Kirsten, so has a lot more experience but as I said Kirsen has no pressure in this match her opponent is expected to win.

And they have never played, I looked that one up

This win should take Kirsten into the top 300 for the first time

She has won 16.5 points according to my calculations, 12.5 round points and 4 bonus points. Her rank will be +/- 287 as she will have 86.5 points but as I don't know what the players ranked around there are doing, I'm not sure exactly where she will go. Qallifying would do excellent things for the ranking But I'm not going to get ahead of myself yet.
