Re: Kiki Bertens

On Nos.nl:
Quote:
Een snel opkomend en heftig maagvirus heeft tennisster Kiki Bertens geveld in de eerste ronde van de US Open. De Wateringse moest maandagavond in de tweede set opgeven tegen de Zwitserse Timea Bacsinszky.

"Voordat ze de baan op ging had ze al last van haar maag. Wij dachten dat het een beetje door de spanning kwam, maar dat bleek achteraf niet zo te zijn. We zijn bij de dokter geweest en het blijkt een maagvirus te zijn, dat duurt 24 uur voordat het weg is", vertelde haar coach Martin van der Brugghen.

Ze won de eerste set nog moeizaam na een tiebreak, maar kon in de tweede set amper nog op haar benen staan. Ze viel bijna flauw en verliet huilend de baan. "Ze zag lijkbleek. Heel vervelend dat het precies op dit moment gebeurt. Dat heeft ze zelf ook tien keer gezegd, want ze stond voor en had een goede kans."

Vier keer overgegeven
"Na de eerste set is ze al de baan afgegaan en volledig leeg teruggekomen. Ze kon eigenlijk niet meer bewegen. Het werd steeds erger en ze werd steeds leger. Ze wilde iets eten, maar dat bleef niet binnen. Vier keer heeft ze in de pedaalemmer overgegeven en ze was zo wankel dat ze gewoon omviel. Ik vind het heel sneu voor haar. Ze was echt aangeslagen."

Het virus heerst in New York, hoorde Van der Brugghen van de artsen. "Ze zeiden dat er meer zijn die er last van hebben. Het komt en gaat snel en is erg heftig. Het staat los van de hitte, maar echt meehelpen zal dat ook niet. Het is een vrij ongelukkige trip in Amerika geweest met dit als slotakkoord."
Like her coach said, it has been an unfortunate trip to the USA for Kiki... Also troubled by stomach aches in Cincinnati and now this...

Re: Kiki Bertens

That's awful.

Not sure if I want her to play in Asia now...hardly the best place to go with an upset stomach...

but somehow I can't help from hoping
to find someone to talk to
who likes the way I am
who when he sees me wants to again

Re: Kiki Bertens

Kiki still the OOP for doubles. Hope she's recovered enough.

Ugh Kiki, she was leading the entire match against Schmiedlova and was serving for the match at 5*-4 second set, when she lost her serve for the first time in the match. I can't anymore.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Kiki She even saved 6 Setpoints in the 2nd set I think.

Much needed win and also in a WTA MD. Schmiedlova was just a wall in the end of the second set, didn't a single UE and got everything back. Kiki was hitting tons of winners at the same time though, in particular in the tiebreak she hit some massive DTL winners. Very tough match, 2 hours and it was hot in Hong Kong for sure. All in all she played well, just serve it out next time at 62 53 please though

R2 vs. Kumkhum or a Qualifier. (Gajdosova, Kai-Lin Zhang, Kulichkova or Zhu)

Re: Kiki Bertens

By the way, did you guys notice she changed her serve motion again Never seen a player switch motions so often I prefer the new motion though, she seems to get power more easily because she has shortened the backswing.

Re: Kiki Bertens

^ Her old motion was very glitchy...glad she has something more powerful.

Good win over a slumping Anna K. Hope she can do well this week.
