Re: Kiki Bertens

She is playing Sydney Q, not Hobart.

She has drawn Kuznetsova in R1 of Auckland, tough draw
But Sveta hasnt played in quite a while so Kiki has a chance for sure.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Impossible to say anything about the outcome of this match. Sveta's last match was at Wimbledon.
I can see some chances in the draw for Kiki if she's able to win her 1st match

Re: Kiki Bertens

Kiki def Sveta 6-7 (5) 6-2 7-5
Could have finished it earlier in the final set, but she said she was a bit nervous. She was serving at 4-2 in that final set. Can't remember if she had a GP in that game.

63% 1st serves in (63% for Sveta)
68% points won on 1st serve (61%)
7 aces / 10 DF (3 aces / 8 DF)
23 FH winners (6)
5 BH winners (8)
9 net points won (5)
49 UE (51)

Re: Kiki Bertens

There was a lot of wind and conditions were tough.
In the 2nd set she was a lot more consistent than in the 1st, and in the 3rd she could finish it off in the end

Great vitory to start the season

This was a fun match to watch. Had some great points. Kiki really upped her level after the 1st set Positive way to start the new season.

Re: Kiki Bertens

There was one shot in the 1st set, that was too GOAT by Kiki

It was somewhere in the 1st set when Kuznetsova angled Kiki outside the court and Kiki just smacked a forehand at rocket speed into the corner DTL

I remember that one. Crazy shot. Her FH DTL was really working today. Also loved her returns

Re: Kiki Bertens

Sounds like a pretty good win

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

Next up is Heather Watson. She defeated Cirstea by retirement in the 1st round.
Interesting match. Kiki leads the H2H by 1-0. Had a victory over Heather in Luxembourg 2011, but alot has changed since then for both ladies.
Kiki has a chance, but needs to keep the UE's down.
Kom op Kiki

Re: Kiki Bertens

Great win and a great way to start the season with a WTA QF
If she defeats Hampton I do think she has to let go of the Sydney Q, because that starts on Friday I think.

But defeating Hampton would give her even more points than qualifying for the MD of Sydney so please roll on Kiki

Re: Kiki Bertens

Really nice win there again from Kiki Off to a good start this season. Good for her confidence.
Chances in the QF as well. I like both Kiki and Jamie, but I’m cheering for Kiki
