Unhappy Flipkens wrist injury: OUT of US Open as well!!

Flipkens mist wellicht Wimbledon en Fedcup

Kirsten Flipkens zal meer dan waarschijnlijk afzeggen voor het tornooi van Wimbledon en het Fedcup-duel België-China. Vader Marino Flipkens bevestigt dat ze weer pijn heeft aan de voorarm. Om 13.00 uur gaat de speelster op doktersbezoek en weet ze meer.

In mei bleek dat de 21-jarige Flipkens een peesontsteking aan de voorarm had opgelopen. Vader Marino: ‘Daarna heeft Kirsten de arm vier weken laten rusten. De blessure leek volledig genezen want er was niets meer te zien op de scans. Ze begon opnieuw te trainen, eerst op een klein veld met kleine ballen. Dat lukte. Maar toen ze weer op een normaal speelveld met normale ballen trainde kreeg ze na twee dagen weer pijn tussen de pols en elleboog.’

Vandaag gaat ze om 13 uur bij de dokter langs, daarna weet ze meer. Maar de kwalificaties in Wimbledon, vanaf volgende week, zal ze missen, en België-China in de Fedcup, op 14 juli, negen kansen op de tien, ook. Plezant is het niet. Ze kan niet meer doen dan zich erbij neer te leggen en vooruit te kijken. Het weegt mentaal, ook al omdat tennis toch haar broodwinning is.’

Flipkens won bij de junioren Wimbledon en de US Open maar brak nog niet door bij de profs. Ze moet haar rug zeer goed in het oog houden. Dit jaar had ze ook al last van een enkel en bronchitis. Ze miste Roland Garros al door haar huidige blessure. Flipkens is derde Belgische op de wereldranglijst, op plaats 155. Justine Henin en Caroline Maes gaan haar voor.

With Wimbledon points off, her ranking is going to drop to about 175
Poor Kirsten Too many injuries

Re: Flipkens may miss Wimbledon and Fed Cup

After four weeks of total rest, Kirsten started training again. Unfortunately, she felt pain in her forearm again two days later. She's seeing a doctor today at 1pm.

This injury will force her to withdraw from Wimbledon qualifying and it is very likely (10% chance of playing) that she'll miss the Fed Cup tie against China as well

Re: Flipkens wrist injury: OUT of US Open as well!!

Having missed Roland Garros, Wimbledon and Fed Cup already this year, Kirsten has now withdrawn from the US Open as well
Her wrist still hasn't healed

FLIPKENS PAST VOOR DE US OPEN
Kirsten Flipkens moet verstek geven
voor de US Open, het laatste grandslam-
toernooi van het jaar. Onze landgenote
werd in juni geopereerd aan tendinitis
aan haar pols en raakt niet speelklaar.

Maandag trok Kirsten Flipkens met haar
coach Marc De Hous op doktersbezoek.
De dokter zag dat de rechterpols van de
21-jarige Flipkens nog wat rust nodig
heeft. Pas over een week mag ze opnieuw
op het trainingsveld staan.

Op 20 augustus begint het kwalificatie-
toernooi voor de US Open. Coach De Hous
weet dat hij zijn pupil niet op tijd
kan klaarstomen om daar te spelen. (één teletekst)

Re: Flipkens wrist injury: OUT of US Open as well!!

just found out that Kirsten is doing a daily 1,5 hour tennis training, asides from her condition training. It's possible that Doctor Verstreken, the same specialist who healed Kim Clijsters' wrist injury, will give a go for Kirsten today.

Probably she'll make her comeback at the $75.000 challenger in Denain (first week of september)!

Oh, I really hope so. After the Fed Cup meeting with the USA she was on the right track again. And then that stupid injury turned up

Let's Go Belgium, Let's Go

With last year's US Open points coming off, she's going to drop all the way to 320 It's going to be really tough to come back, I'm afraid
