Re: Kiki Bertens

She drew Koukalova, quite a kind draw. She has chances to win

Re: Kiki Bertens

Hm, that wasnt one of my favourites. My impression was that Koukalova usually beats players ranked 30+.
But I see she isn't in great form, judging by recent results. It's certainly possible.

Re: Kiki Bertens

I just watched Kiki play in Montreal yesterday and on saturday. I'm definitely a fan now, but whoever said that she gets tight and passive when she's up was right. I was so impressed with her game at the beginning of each set, she clearly has a lot of talent and she was making great choices on the run, but then when she got up she got some fear-of-winning jitters I think.

Also, she's so shy! I kept congratulating her after her matches and she could barely look up.

gone

Re: Kiki Bertens

Against Koukalova. Could be worse, but tbh not the draw I was hoping for.

Match allready started. Kiki was down 0-3. Came back to 2-3 and was serving to make it 3 all, but lost serve again.

Yeah, she is a bit shy and her English isn't that great either so that doesn't help. But she is a nice girl, believe me

Kiki now serving for the set at *54!

Re: Kiki Bertens

It's only from stats but she seemed to be serving better in qualifying. Lower percentage, fewer aces, more DFs.

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

Down *56, had a breakpoint in the previous game would be nice if she could at least make it a tiebreak.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Yesterday she also failed to serve out a set 3 times, twice in the first set and also in the second

Re: Kiki Bertens

Tbf she was broken four times out of six, so she was just poor on serve throughout the set.

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
