I wish I could have watched it Was hoping her match wouldn't be the 1st on OOP
It was a really good match, so many rallies and fun points.

There was 1 point where Kiki hit 2 defensive lobs, 1 to return a lob and 1 to return a smash, and still won the point


The British Eurosport commentators said she should surely be seeded at RG and be an underdog.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Ahh, I wanted to watch it

But a good scoreline against Vinci and apparantly a good match by Kiki so I think she can be pretty satisfied

Re: Kiki Bertens

It was a very good match, and Kiki really impressed me. I think she will have a very good career...she has good movement on clay, a powerful serve and really heavy groundstrokes...she reminds me of Kaia Kanepi quite a bit.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Marrakech Main Draw

Her quarter of the draw:

(1/wc)Dominika Cibulkova - Karolina Pliskova
Lourdes Dominguez-Lino - Misaki Doi
Melinda Czink - Flavia Pennetta
(5)Kiki Bertens - Qualifier

Quite the rough draw, facing experienced clay specialist Pennetta in R2 and then the top seed.

R1 opponent will be one of Cadantu, Babos, Knapp, Foretz, Honcova, Pereira, Bratchikova or Cabeza Candela.
Will be tricky to play a qualifier with already 3 matches under the belt in R1.

Kiki drew Babos. She was 2-5 down, but came back. It's 5-5 now

Re: Kiki Bertens

Won 7-5 6-2

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 no luck with draws, but lets create your own luck.

She beat Cibulkova in Paris already.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Pennetta is playing well though,

the wind is so bad the parasols almost came on court
