Re: Kiki Bertens

Wow, nice and easy win

Had expected Glatch to make it a bit tougher but it looks like Kiki could be returning to form

Re: Kiki Bertens

Nice to see Kiki winning 3 matches in a row Should give her a good confidence boost.
Was worried about this match. Glatch can be a tricky opponent.
Let's hope for a good draw

Re: Kiki Bertens

Has drawn Petrova in the MD

This is a tournament with top players so we couldn't expect a walking bye. Hopefully she can do better than she did in Rosmalen when she lost 26 46.

Petrova went on to destroy that field though
I expect a close match and hopefully Kiki can scam a set

Re: Kiki Bertens

Kiki is playing at the moment against Petrova.

She was down 1-4* in the 1st set. Came back to 3-4, but then lost 3-6.
In the 2nd set again she was down 1-4, but this time was able to turn things around and win the 2nd set TB 7-4.

Final set about to start now with Kiki serving first.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Kiki def Nadia 3-6 7-6(4) 6-4

Final set started with 4 breaks in a row. At 4-5 Nadia served to stay in the match. It was a long game, but eventually Kiki won.

R2 against Caro Great experience for her

100 points won
30 for qualifying and 70 for reaching R2!

Re: Kiki Bertens

She really is a great player, she has massive potential Great win and now against Wozniacki

Re: Kiki Bertens

From the WTA website

http://www.wtatennis.com/news/201208...256076_2875892

Bertens Beats Petrova, Bouchard Hangs On

MONTRÉAL, Canada - The first round of the Rogers Cup wrapped up on Wednesday afternoon, with a few players coming back from the brink of defeat just to make the second round at the prestigious Premier-level tournament.

Among them was Dutch qualifier Kiki Bertens, who rallied from a 63 41 deficit to beat former World No.3 Nadia Petrova in a nail-biter, 36 76(4) 64.

"In the beginning I wasn't playing so well, but I kept fighting and my level got better as the match went on," Bertens said. "Every day my form is getting better on hardcourt, so I hope I can keep that going moving forward here."

It has been a breakthrough season for Bertens, capturing her first WTA title on the clay courts of Fès, Morocco and subsequently breaking the Top 100 - and now the 20-year-old Dutchwoman matches her career-best win in terms of ranking, having beaten a No.22-ranked Lucie Safarova at Wimbledon.

Next up is World No.8 Caroline Wozniacki. "I've never played a Top 10 player, this will be my first time, so I hope I can enjoy it and play my best."

What Bertens may not realize is it's not only her first time playing against a Top 10 player, it's also her first time playing against a Top 20 player.
