Re: Kiki Bertens

Begu is in good shape this year.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Actually, relatively she's in bad shape this year, especially in comparison to 2 or 3 years ago when she won best newcomer of the year and top40

I mean, Kiki should win

Re: Kiki Bertens

Kiki lost her only previous meeting to Begu in Linz in 2012 in 2 sets on indoor hardcourt.

If she wins though, there is a big chance she will draw a player against whom she has lost already this year. She can draw top seed Suarez Navarro who beat Kiki in Florianopolis. She can draw Stosur against whom she lost in Miami quite easily. It's also possible she will play against Nara(!) once again and I wouldn't be surprised if she couldn't win a second time. Last possibility is against Vesnina.

Kiki is growing in form too so she can surely win. That Fed Cup win has given her a nice confidence boost and her win today against Barthel who almost beat Jankovic this week in Stuttgart proves that she is doing well.

Rest in Peace Elena Baltacha <3

Re: Kiki Bertens

Back to 3-all Kiki is not serving well though, just 43% 1st serve in.

Jinxed it... Begu takes 2nd set 64. Points in the 2nd set: Kiki 39 vs. Begu 39. Equal amount of points won, but lost the set 46.

Re: Kiki Bertens

It seems serving is a problem currently? Come on Kiki!

Re: Kiki Bertens

Down *1-4 in the 3rd, don't think she can come back now. Really disappointed by this mental lapse from Kiki.... In the first set she also served at mediocre level and still bagelled her. She let Begu back in the match. It was 60 44* 40-40, and now she has lost 6 of the next 7 games.
