The weirdest part is Svetlana's choice to play with Yanina :lol:. Yanina is an awful doubles player while Svetlana is the AO defending champion along with Zvonareva.

Good luck girls. Hopefully Flipper wins a match or more.

Hope she can play a good match! C'mon!

Maybe Kuznetsova was to play with Vera but when Vera withdrew she needed to find a new partner. Yanina hardly plays doubles so wouldn't have already commmitted to play with anyone else.

This should be good for Yanina's doubles. She will learn a lot!

I saw the doubles of Yanina till 2-1 in the second set. She just had to serve 4 times but it was looking good. Overall she was playing a decent match. Sadly enough Sveta couldn't win any of her service games.

Great start of the year by both already!! :)

I don't think it's a bad thing that they face each other already early this year. It'll only spice things up IMO :)

Great to see that they both made QF.
Really excited to see who is going to win this one!

I'll go for Yanina in three sets, didn't think she would play this good! (saw the match against oprandi, and she played great)

Go Kirsten :devil:

If Yanina plays like she did against Oprandi, Flipkens doesn't stand a chance.

The Crow
Jan 2nd, 2013, 01:46 PM
But Flipper has the game to prevent the opposite player from playing her best game.

Kirsten will win :yeah:

So does Oprandi ;)

Wimanna

The H2H is 2-0 Wickmayer, but no easy wins at all. Hope Flipkens can make it this time. Would be good for her run to top-30 ;)

Dorien.

So great to see both girls in the quarter-final in the first tournament of the season. :)
They cannot win both? :p

The Crow

So does Oprandi ;)

You're right. I think it'll either be an easy two-set win for Yanina, or a tough three-set win for Kirsten.

QF: Yanina Wickmayer d. Kirsten Flipkens: 6-3, 6-4

Great play, and Yanina never lost serve!

On match point there was an argument with Kirsten and the umpire. The ball was called out but immediately overruled by the umpire. Kirsten saw the last ball from yanina out (in my opinium it was out too) and argued with the umpire. She was quite pised!

But anyway, a great match from Yanina and maybe a little too mutch errors from Kirsten but she didn't play bad.

SF: Yanina Wickmayer (3) vs Mona Barthel (8)!

Wimanna

Yanina :yeah: She's (almost) never letting her fans down at the start of the year! :)

Kirsten :sad: But good start of the year! Is she playing next week?

Emiel Goelen
Jan 3rd, 2013, 07:00 AM
Yes, Kirsten is playing Hobart next week :)

Brαm
Jan 3rd, 2013, 08:24 AM
I was rooting for Kirsten for the simple reason that she was 1 win away from top-50... Anyway, let's hope Yanina can continue this good streak and beat Barthel. Didn't she lose the Hobart final to Mona last year?

Indeed!

I was also rooting for Kirsten, but she should be able to break the top 50 anyway, seeing she got almost nothing to defend the next months. :cool:

It will be a interesting semi-final.
Barthel is also playing very well, she totally destroyed Larsson in just 45 minutes!

Hope Yanina will not have the same scoreline like the hobart final! :help:

Same here, was rooting a little bit more for Kirsten ;) But after looking more into the rankings, I think top-30 won't be a problem anyway*... Yanina on her side, is close to top-20 again, but needs to defend 200 points next week in Sydney (I suppose the strenght of the field there is not easy) So good recovery of points already!

*with results she's showing lately

Looking forward to what Yanina can do against Barthel. If both are playing well, it should be a great match.

Barty_Tennisfan

SF: Wickmayer d. Barthel: 6-4,1-6,7-6(3) !!!

Amazing match! In the end too much unforced errors from Barthel, maar Yanina played well too :) She just got overpowered in the second set, but in the end she was the best :)

Emiel Goelen
Jan 4th, 2013, 06:55 AM
Yanina :cheer:

F (1) Agnieszka Radwanska POL vs. (3) Yanina Wickmayer BEL

The final will be more difficult...

Brαm
Jan 4th, 2013, 07:16 AM
Woohoo! Great win against Barthel. That should boost her mental confidence!

That being said, she probably has a 10 to 15% chance of beating Radwanska IMO...

Wimanna
Jan 4th, 2013, 07:28 AM
Great win, kept on fighting in the third cuz she needed it after that second set!

For me, she has a real chance beating Radwanska! :p

Tully

Great start to the year for both girls.

Good Luck in final Yanina.

Great win for Yanina :cool: I can see her beating Radwanska.

Great start to the season from Yanina. Good luck against Radwanska

Barty_Tennisfan
Jan 5th, 2013, 02:52 AM
Radwanska wins

Final: (1) A. Radwanska d. (3) Yanina Wickmayer: 6-4, 6-4.

In the end there were just too many unforced errors from Yanina, that made the difference in this final.

But still a very good week for Yanina! And she's back in the top 20! :D:D

Wimanna
Jan 5th, 2013, 08:29 AM
:sad: a title with 3 winners for Wozniacki II :o ;)

Great week Yanina, and good to see her top-20 again :) Hope she can defend some points next week!

Dorien.
Jan 5th, 2013, 01:51 PM
I hope the season can be like the first week of the season ;)
