Re: Kiki Bertens

it's been quite much of a bad day for Kiki in Bad Gastein, but if you wish to know more about her loss I wrote a match report as I was there watching, if you want to I can also share some of the pics I took of her: http://ski-and-tennis.blogspot.it/20...-2-review.html

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Kiki Bertens

The Stanford draw is done, Kiki plays against wildcard Nicole Gibbs in the 1st round. This might look like an easy draw, but Gibbs won 50k Yakima 2 weeks ago and with Kiki in this form I am not expecting an easy match

I highly doubt Kiki will win this
First, Gibbs is really a Top 80 player but because of college commitments only players tennis in the Northern Hemisphere summer.
Secondly, this is where Gibbs studies and she won a round here last year so a win for Kiki really will be difficult as this is her "home" tournament

Still, best of luck and prove me wrong like Aran and Indy did

Re: Kiki Bertens

Bit of a slump now

Losing 6 matches in a row and not winning a set in her last 4 matches
Hope she can turn this around quickly, because she can get a bit down on herself when it's not working and start having doubts. Hope she can break this losing streak asap

Re: Kiki Bertens

Lost 1st set 46 to Cepelova in Washington, was down *1-4, then won 13(!) points in a row, to 4-4 15-0. Then she lost the next 7 of 8 points to drop the set. She was down *0-3 40-A as well, but didnt go down a double break.

Kiki nutcase Such a shame, she is serving really well, 70% 1st serve in!

Re: Kiki Bertens

She has snatched a break in the 2nd now *1-0. Cepelova is unfortunately serving even better than Kiki, 85% first serve in, which is really an Errani-like stat

And now a 2-0* lead in the 2nd, fending off 2 breakpoints

Edit: *3-0, Kiki has got a foothold in this set, a double break up now. Hopefully she can win a set, she lost all of her slump matches in straight sets too.

Re: Kiki Bertens

46 60 36

Winning a set 6-0, winning 4 points more than Cepelova and still losing

Not easy to be a Dutch tennis fan these days, first we had Aran and her 14 match loing streak and now Kiki has lost 7 matches in a row
