Kirsten :(:(:(:(:(

But..............
She's in the main draw as a lucky loser...
So, that's the good news...

Caserta :
1R : LL Flipkens (BEL - 331) - Q Savchuk (UKR - 443)

Possible second round...
Alves (BRA - 220) or..................................
Hlavackova (CZE - 533)

I like the revenge match ;)

Anyways, good luck in round 1!

It's sad indeed...
But maybe she knew before her match, she was going to be a lucky loser anyway...
There are three in the maindraw, so the chance was rather great to be a lucky loser... Not that it makes the result acceptable... Certainly not, but I could understand it just motivates you that little bit less to win that qualifying match...

But, she's in the maindraw now... Let's hope she does better in her first round match, because Kirsten's results lately are rather disappointing...

Time to change that girl ;)

Well next time she'd better give it away 0-6,0-6 than 6-0,6-7,4-6 ;)

No no, Hlavackova is ranked only 9 places below Kirsten!

(...in the junior ranking http://pages.prodigy.net/rogerlori1/emoticons/think1.gif. She's #10 now, used to be #5, so she's probably not as bad as her WTA-ranking indicates)

Hum... Which Hlavackova is it? Because in 2002 I saw one Hlavackova in Brussels against Schett, is it the same one?

This is Andrea...Schett played against Jana Hlavackova ;)

Hlavackova may only be 9 spots below Kirsten but it is a bad loss Hlavackova hasn't been playing well lately at all, her best result all year is a QF of a 10K and she has done nothing in the 25K's she has played so far this year.
After starting so well in Napoli Kirsten's results have really gone down hill since then, I really hope she can somehow find better form so she can at least make an impression at Wimbledon in quallies. Maybe Kirsten is feeling the pressure now, she won her first tournament back (a 10K) and then all of a sudden had her own official site and products, that is a lot for a challenger level player. Perhaps she is feeling the pressure to reach the WTA level straight away.

Excellent post Naomi (as usual :kiss: )

I'm afraid you're right. That Sprem match in Fed cup has really brought her back on earth.
Just look at the results:
Before the match: 6-0
Sprem match + rest of the season: 5-6

I know the level of the tournaments she's playing now is higher than $10k. But still, she's losing to lower-ranked players... (Klepac :o)
The Stellato-matches show that her confidence is lower now.
While being rusty she beat her 6-2 6-2! After the Klepac loss, she wins 6-3 2-6 6-3.

She's lucky that she doesn't have any points to defend (which would put more pressure on her).

Good luck in Caserta Kirsten ;)

I agree, she will bounce back:) Maybe she wants it too much, or her confidence isn't that high, or she just needs more time after her injury,....

It's dissapointing result anyway :sad:
