Interview with Kirsten : "Karolina played too well today. First two games I was able to keep up with her because she was still searching for her range but afterwards there was nothing I could do, she was just too good. If she plays like that tomorrow it will be a difficult match for Kim."

Good Job: K-Lina:D

I expected something like this, K-lina is really really good, even better than you would think seeing her ranking (28), she 's climbing the rankings for months now
I hope Kirsten learns something out of it...;

Seriously...it was a HUGE mistake to have Kristen play..they should have went with the Veteran ELLS..she would have had a much better chance of winning..especialy if she was on that day.. :p

she doesn't have a sponsor :o (but the outfit is adidas minus the logo)

No disrespect to K-lina, but Flipper lost a lot of time (and WTA level "match hardening") to her injury early this year. Its way too early to evaluate her, IMO.

that's outrageous! she's one of the most improved players of recent times. i hope she'll get a good contract very soon. :D

Yeah, I agree. I know clay is not the favourite surface for Els but she's got the experience.
I'm not saying she would have won but maybe it would have been a match.
Hope Flipper will quickly forget about this match.

i think the belgium captain put kristen in a bad situation. this was one of the biggest matches of her career and she was playing for her country. else would have been a better choice because of her match experience.

Poor Kirsten :sad: :sad: Kim will take her revenge tomorrow! (I hope)

But well done Karolina :yeah: She is a great player now, I think she can reach the top 15 soon! :)

Els wouldn't have been a better choice, really. She's lost the last SIX matches she's played and hasn't won a match on clay this year.

Kirsten had just won a (even though it was $10k) tournament.

K-Lina played a great match, a lot of great winners :) Too bad for Kirsten, all went too fast for her. :sad: Don't think it was a bad decision to let Kirsten play though, I'm sure she will learn out of this.

Yes, and besides, it was a risky, but well thought choice by Van Aken (coach).
K-Lina doesn't lik ehigh topspinballs, but she loves flat strokes. Kirsten's game is naturally (much) more of a topspin game than Callens'. That's what Flipkens tried to do. Give her high topspin balls. Sometimes (sometimes ;) ) it worked, but most of the time K-lina was far too good. Flipkens was always a step too late and too far behind her baseline.
I don't think it was a bad choice! I only hope Flipkens doesn't feel too discouraged by her performance. We all gotta adit. K-lina is definetly top15 (at the least!!) material! Her serve ( :eek: ), her groundstrokes, even her 'touch' from time to time! She's really good!
