Last week, Kirsten won, as a qualifier, the 50.000 dollar tournament in Innsbruck...

Her new ranking this week was 202...

Today she won her first round match in the 75.000 dollar tournament in Modena against Marta Domachowska : 6-3,7-5

This means she'll be in the top-200 next week! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Her win in the Fed Cup against Anabel Medina-Garrigues must have given her a great boost of confidence! ;)

Keep going girl...

Next round, she'll play against Conchita Martinez-Granados, who replaces Flavia Penetta in the main draw!

Good luck girl! ;);)

Are the Belgians now predicting how long Kirsten is going to pass Els?:).
With this kind of great result, I think she might get into Austrlian Open MD to finally debut in slams at 18, kind of late though for a World Junior Champion:). But still, hope the best for her since we do need more players with variety in the game of tennis.

Actually, Pous-Tio was the lucky loser, replacing Pennetta in the main draw. She lost against Martinez-Granados. :p

Anyway, good luck Kirsten tomorrow against the Spaniard! :)

Flipper made her debut in the slams at Wimbledon, with the wildcard she earned as junior winner the previous year ;)

Well done Kirsten, and she should take out Martinez-Granados as well :rolleyes:

Is Martinez-Granados the one she lost against in Fedcup?

I think that was Sanchez-Lorenzo.

Right. I knew it was someone who could be mistaken for one of the top Spaniards. But it was Sanchez and not Martinez ;)

She is the world junior champion of 2003, and she is good.
Just not talented enough like Justine and Kim.
