Re: Kiki Bertens

I like Kiki's drop shots though.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Yeah. But she had a gamepoint at 3-2, space for a winner, but she chose the wrong side to hit the ball and Errani got it back.
Against Errani you really need to take these chances.Edit: Now Errani found her rythm and it will be hard for Kiki to come through. She makes a lot of errors, I agree with Goofyduck that she needs to use her head.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Kiki needs to create all the pace herself, causing her to overhit some shots.

@DennisNL, yeah her dropshots are GOAT But she only scored 2 points with it I think this set.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Kiki retired!

She seemed to moving alright? Perhaps she was in too much pain...

Errani given a retirement win again

Re: Kiki Bertens

Uh oh, that's bad. So quick after her injury break of last year!?
Anyway, she seemed to move well, judging the nice smash from the baseline she did.

And indeed really good drop shots. I think I saw 3-4.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Probably her back bothering which she injured in her 1st round match.
Again, a back injury against Errani. Same as in Paris
Such a shame it would have been nice how she would play against Errani if she was 100% healthy

Re: Kiki Bertens

Kiki was unable to sit down during changeovers so it indicates the severity of the injury.

She is coming home to rest up for the fed cup meeting. That is 15-16 days from now, so hopefully she will be able to recover in time.

Re: Kiki Bertens

After an amazing Fed Cup weekend where Kiki beat Doi in 2 sets and Nara in a thriller 9-7 in the 3rd, she is playing WTA Oeiras in Portugal. She's in the qualifying draw and is unseeded. Today she played against Claire Feuerstein in the first round and she beat her convincingly 62 62 Occassionally she had to work quite hard to win certain games, but still a relatively easy win

Re: Kiki Bertens

Very good win Q final vs Begu (Romania).
