Wow, it has been a while since someone posted something in Flipper's forum. It's pretty dead in there :drool:

I hope to force a revival with this new thread where we can follow and support Kirsten this year and hopefully all the years to come. After all, she's the one who has the fill the black hole once Kim and Justine retire :sad: .

Good luck this week Kirsten in Putignano (€ 25.000):

Apparently Kirsten is injured again :(

De Standaard Website vrijdag 11 mei 2007

Kirsten Flipkens waarschijnlijk out voor Roland Garros

Kirsten Flipkens (WTA 134) is met een blessure aan de rechtervoorarm teruggekeerd uit Rome, en zal waarschijnlijk niet kunnen deelnemen aan de kwalificaties van Roland Garros, het tweede Grand-Slamtornooi van het seizoen, dat op 28 mei van start gaat. Dat meldde haar vader en manager Marino Flipkens vrijdag in een communiqué.
Volgens Marino Flipkens stond zijn dochter donderdagmorgen op met de blessure. Later op de dag verloor ze in de tweede ronde van het ITF-tornooi van Rome van de Tsjechische Sandra Zahlavova.

'Een eerste diagnose geeft aan dat het wellicht om een ernstige peesontsteking gaat', aldus Marino Flipkens. 'Maandag zal dokter Verstreken uitsluitsel geven, maar de kans dat Kirsten deelneemt aan de kwalificaties van Roland Garros is heel klein.'

Kirsten Flipkens zegt af voor Roland Garros

BRUSSEL - Kirsten Flipkens (WTA 131) moet forfait geven voor de kwalificaties van Roland Garros, het tweede Grand-Slamtoernooi van het seizoen, dat op 28 mei van start gaat. Dat meldde haar vader en manager Marino Flipkens maandag in een communiqué.
Flipkens liep vorige week donderdag op het ITF-toernooi van Rome een blessure aan de rechtervoorarm op. Onderzoek wees uit dat de Molse een peesontsteking opliep als gevolg van een overbelasting. Flipkens werd maandagochtend behandeld en is vermoedelijk drie tot vier weken buiten strijd.

Wat wordt Flipper's eerste tornooi in 2009?
Ik ben eens benieuwd wat voor een jaar het voor Kirsten wordt.
Denken jullie trouwens dat de hoofdtabel voor de AO er in zit? (ik bedoel rechtstreekse plaatsing)

Ze staat momenteel vier plaatsjes uit de hoofdtabel dus hopelijk staat het geluk aan haar kant. Ze zou wel uitgeschreven zijn voor de qualies dus enkel spelen als in de hoofdtabel staat.

Ik hoop ook dat het lukt om op die hoofdtabel te komen, zou leuk zijn om Flipper eens aan het werk te zien in Australië. Daarvoor al tornooien gepland, of ben je daar ook niet van op de hoogte?

Sorry for the dutch! I will quickly tell u what was said ...

Kirsten only has 3 players in front of her on the 'next in' list for the AO main draw. She has been taken off of the qualifiers list, so she will probably only play in Australia if she's automatically in the main draw. With a bit of luck she will be able to actually play at the AO...
I don't know about any other tournaments she might play before/ right after AO...

Indeed :tape: If this is going to be similar to last year :scared: She also skipped AO, went training and then suffered a heavy loss against Alona Bondarenko in the Fed Cup. Now she probably has to play either Hantuchova or Cibulkova ... Not smart !

I think Flipper will be able to get on the MD without quallies, but I wonder if she will play in Australia, even if she's on the MD now...

^bibi^
Jan 2nd, 2009, 10:11 AM
Looks like she's still in MDO...

But she would need a few withdrawals to get in and I dn't think there will be that many...

Whatzup
Jan 3rd, 2009, 01:55 PM
I saw on Belgian teletext that she will train on bike with some pro bikers in Portugal... nice for her because I think she likes riding bike but why not playing the Australian Open. What's wrong with playing qualifying, it's her level at the moment and she can get extra points and money for that, with her ranking she could have also played Brisbane or Auckland (qualifying). She has the level for top 100, but with her decissions she isn't going the right way, and now I understand why Dehous has ended coaching her, lack of commitment, really sorry for a talent like her.

bengt
Jan 7th, 2009, 07:20 AM
don't be so pessimistic. she'll play at the AO, don't worry, she'll get in the MD.
Maybe it's good to keep the pressure off, I read on a website that her main goal this year is to stay healthy, if she can do that, results will follow...

Flipper toch naar Australië 12-01-2009

Kirsten staat dan toch op de hoofdtabel van de Australian Open. De Molse profiteert van de afzegging van Meghann Shaughnessy.

Vader Marino maakte het nieuws bekend. "Uit niet-officiële bron hoorde ik dat Kirsten de plaats inneemt van de geblesseerde Amerikaanse Meghann Shaughnessy, maar dit weet ik niet met zekerheid. Maar dat ze op de hoofdtabel komt, is zeker."

Flipper gooit haar planning dus om en trekt nog snel naar Australië. Het eerste Grand Slam-tornooi van het seizoen start op 19 januari.

Yeah, I watched the match as well, and she really played great tennis. At moments she was really the better player, she made Jankovic work hard. In the second set, she should've taken the chance to lead 4-1 though...but well.
Just happy to see her play like that, it looks very promising!
