Re: Flipper 2013!

She said that after she missed 3 easy forehand in that game at 4-5 30-0 first set against Barthel she never felt the ball that well again. And i can understand

She also said with irony : "Previous week i reach the quarters in Auckland. This week i'm going to the semis in Hobart, next week i'm in final" Kirsten

Re: Flipper 2013!

Was at Flipper's match today. Kirsten wasn't too impressed by lines people

Kirsten served well , 5 aces. Her 2nd serve is serviceable but I think it's an area she can make improvements in to keeps moving up the rankings. Moves the ball very nicely around the court. Also needs to work on her top spin backhand as well, the slice is very effective but to be able to change it up more especially in service return would be good.

Overall a good match which she was never going to lose.

Was very happy afterwards

Good Luck: Belgian & Czech Girls

Re: Flipper 2013!

Kirsten takes the first set againt Zakopalova; 6-1

She is playing really good again, and too many errors from Zakopalova at the moment.

Re: Flipper 2013!

R2: Kirsten Flipkens def. (23) Klara Zakopalova: 6-1, 6-0

Zakopalova played really horrible, but Kirsten played great
Wow, already third round at a grandslam! She's incredible

Re: Flipper 2013!

Wow, great win. Her analysis of the match was spot on as well!

Keep going Flipper! Great chance to reach the 4th round at a GS!
