After a year with back problems, Kirsten Flipkens (10-01-1986) finally shows her talent again..

She won the Wimbledon and US Open juniors title in 2003 and ended that same year on number one...

Let's hope she can play injury free this year and reach the top-100.

What I don't like is that she always starts slow in a match. I think that's what she has to work on, she already has a great fighting spirit.

It's great because Kirsten is a talented girl but she didn't have the chance too show itr cuz of all her injuries. Now she finally seems to be back on track with these small victories.

Witht that said, if you find this thread nothing, don't come in it.
