Against Richel now Nice to have one of them in the qf.
I love Kiki and it would be good for her to get a good result and a couple of wins here.
Then again I want Richel to take that next step and enter top 150/120. She has had some nice wins, also some in WTA and it would be nice to see to take that next step. Good luck to both



Don't you dare Jo-La

I love that the Dutchies and Swedish girls seem to get along well.
Sofia took Aran shopping when she choked and lost. Jo-La took Richel and Kiki I think out for dinner.

Or maybe it is true and Dutch people are just cheap
Sofia took Aran shopping when? Rosmalen 2012? Sofia is one of my favourite players too

Yeah, it's nice that they get along with the Swedish girls, at least they are making some friends in a tough world.
Or as Lesley said in an interview with Zeeland TV: Sommige meiden zijn echt 'bitches', laten we het zo zeggen.

I love Sofia too. She seems like a fun person and one of the nicer ones on tour.

Here it is, it was in Miami 2010

The blog is in Swedish, but basically it says.

Have spoke a bit with Arantxa Rus here in Miami. She played the game before me yesterday and had a match point but unfortunately lost. She was of course very sad. After my match I met with her. I said I know how she feels. 2 years since I sat in the dressing room with the towel over my head at 00:30 at night, exhausted after 5 match points against third-place in the world. So I gave a small Arantxa suggestions ..
- Lets go shopping and forget about tennis ..
So we went to Dadeland shopping mall and spent a few hours there. Came out with more bags than we entered ..
-This was great fun. I didn't even think of my game one time, she said ...

I was quite surprised when I saw Richel as Jo-La's hitting partner in Nurnberg last year. They went to the players' party together as well.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Kiki def. Richel 62 61

Lopsided scoreline, hopefully Kiki doesn't bomb out next round

Wow, that was so nice of Sofia

Yeah, she is definitely one of the friendliest players on tour (She lost yesterday 16 26 to Zanevska though )
The Dutch and the Swedes seem to get along very well in general. Anyone watched Eurovision on Tuesday? The two delegations get along well (Especially regarding the winners press conference)

Re: Kiki Bertens

Bertens - Watson currently on court. Quite a challenging opponent, I would say.
Nevertheless Kiki is leading a set and a break: 6-3 3*-1 30-15
Go Kiki!

Re: Kiki Bertens

Clearly won: 6-3 6-1. Very nice!
Now Paszek or Fichman I think.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Very good Watson could play on clay before her illness.

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

Now against Sharon Fichman, who beat Tamira Paszek 6-2 6-0. That sounds kind of impressive, although Tamira can be a huge headcase.
What kind of player is this girl? It seems to me that Kiki should be the favorite?

BTW Kiki also reached the doubles final with JoLa.

IIRC Fichman doesn't generate much pace, not your typical North American player.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Lost the first set 5-7... wasn't Fichman an endless ball retriever?
