It will be hard at the beginning as usual for her but the second part or the year will be better.

Flipper has performed solidly in the past in Australia. If she stays fit and healthy the surfaces in the first 3 / 4 months suit her game.

Kirsten has pretty much nothing to defend till Rosmalen mainly due to last year having blood clots. I'd expect Kirsten would be aiming to take advantage of that and put together a campaign for top 30.


Sid Auckland draw. Use it Kirsten and start 2013 with a bang!

Also playing doubles with Larsson.

I hope Kirsten plays more doubles in 2013. Good for match practice and can pick up some extra cash.

Winnable R2 vs. Parmentier ;)

Tully
Dec 31st, 2012, 05:15 AM
Wow after a comfortable first set that began such a tough fight! Well done Kirsten.

But Flipper is an absolute fighter, I think I saw her down 2-4 in the 3rd set.

A win to start the new season is always nice and a long match like that would have to get her game together.

Hope she isn't tired for round 2 because I too see it as winnable.

Dorien.

Tully

Onto Hobart.

Round 1 against schiavone. Kirsten has a great shot to win I think.

Good luck!

Dorien.
Jan 4th, 2013, 03:17 PM
Yeah, she should win this. Schiavone is playing so bad for the moment.

Barty_Tennisfan
Jan 7th, 2013, 11:02 AM
Kirsten takes the second set :)

2-6, 6-3, ...

C'mon! If she wins she's definitely in the top 50 :D

Flipper wins! :D:D
Kirsten Flipkens d. Francesca Schiavone (5): 2-6, 6-3, 7-6(3) !

She's in the top 50 now :bounce::bounce:

Tully
Jan 7th, 2013, 12:17 PM
Kirsten should be winning some of her matches much more easily than she is. But the positive thing is she does t dwell on missed opportunities just fights back and does t give up.

Kirsten broke in the first game of the 3rd only to give it back in the next game. Schiavone served for the match but Flipper broke back and dominated the tiebreak.

So happy she has made top 50 :)

Dorien.
Jan 7th, 2013, 08:08 PM
Great win again :cool:

So top 50 is a certainty now?

Well done, Flipper!

Yes. Solid one :cool:

Indeed great birthday present :)

The Crow
Jan 11th, 2013, 12:01 PM
She lost to Barthel 6-4, 6-4. I saw a large part of the first set. She fought good to stay on serve, but her service game at 5-4 was appalling (she led 30-0 and made 4 errors in a row).

But good tournament. AO, here we come!

Ollie.
Jan 11th, 2013, 04:38 PM
Still a good tournament for her. :)

She plays Bratchikova in the first round of the AO, which is very winnable for Flipper. :D And then she is set to meet Klara Zakopalova in the 2nd round. :)

But next week is a new match, good luck Kirsten.

Kirsten plays 2nd match Monday on court 20.

I am very excited as I am going on Monday so I hope I can get a seat at this court. Actually Kirsten is one of many Belgians playing Monday ..Goffin, Rochis, Bemmelmns, Authom

Good Luck!!

Dorien.

She said that after she missed 3 easy forehand in that game at 4-5 30-0 first set against Barthel she never felt the ball that well again. And i can understand :p

She also said with irony : "Previous week i reach the quarters in Auckland. This week i'm going to the semis in Hobart, next week i'm in final" :lol: Kirsten :hearts:

Doubles with Rybarikova, R1 against (8) Kops-Jones/Spears ;)

Tully
Jan 14th, 2013, 10:33 AM
Was at Flipper's match today. Kirsten wasn't too impressed by lines people :lol:

Kirsten served well , 5 aces. Her 2nd serve is serviceable but I think it's an area she can make improvements in to keeps moving up the rankings. Moves the ball very nicely around the court. Also needs to work on her top spin backhand as well, the slice is very effective but to be able to change it up more especially in service return would be good.

Overall a good match which she was never going to lose.

Was very happy afterwards :)

Totally destroying Zakopalova, Klara was even in tears at her chair.

6-1, 4-0* :eek:

Keep going Flipper! Great chance to reach the 4th round at a GS!

Barty_Tennisfan
Jan 20th, 2013, 05:17 AM
Sharapova takes the first set with 6-1.
The score doesn't say it all, Flipkens isn't overpowered by Sharapova.
Sharapova plays not that good, hits lots of double faults and errors, and Flipkens didn't take the break points.

Barty_Tennisfan
Jan 20th, 2013, 05:42 AM
That's it for Kirsten.
Sharapova wins with 6-1 and 6-0.
Second set was all Sharapova, Flipkens had no chance at all.
But she can be proud of her tournament! :D

Dorien.

Much improved score line from the US Open and also in comparison to the Sharapova match in Melbourne.

Hopefully Flipper takes positives out of this and plays at same level in Miami.

She lost 3 sets but was leading 5-1 in the last one :sobbing:

Guess she felt the pressure, though she said she would not feel it while playing in her home country. :sad:

No one cares that she's in the SF of WTA Rosmalen? :lol:

Great news! And she has a good chance for the final I think!
And good that she defended her points from last year! Now, she can only rise up the rankings until the US Open!!! :bounce:

^She reached the final ;)

And she won R1 at Wimbledon in straight sets over Putintseva. I saw some of it, she wasn't playing great but she was solid enough for the win. She should have a more challenging R2 match against Jovanovski, but Jovanovski is brainless so I hope Flipper just slices her to death :devil:

6-4 6-4 :D
I watched it. She didn't play that well, but she was solid enough to get past her brainless opponent :lol:
R3 vs. Dolonc (SRB) :bounce:
Such a great opportunity to go far here, best of luck Flipper! :)

Also won 6-3 6-3 in doubled with Rybarikova over Cirstea/Morita :yeah:

And another win 6-4, 6-2! Against Flavia again. Hopefully, Flavia will be as frustrated after that match as she was after the match at Roland Garros :devil:

But she complained about her knee before the match. Please retire from doubles!

Pennetta is next. Flipper defeated her at the best surface for the italian in Roland Garros. We'll see, good luck Flipper.

She looks so comfortable and fearless out there. It's amazing considering her lack of experience at the highest level!

Yeah amazing... at first I tought she didn't give a f**k about it at all... But seems she was 'in the zone' all time.

Wth?! That was brilliant! Whatever people say, Kvitova played a very good third set. She was the better player, but Flipper's mental stability was phenomenal!

Well done, and nothing is impossible!

Indeed mentally she was so strong. Hopefully she can show some of her mental strength tomorrow. I am so sad I have to work tomorrow. And it's still busy at my job so not able to take free in the afternoon :sobbing:

Good luck to your girl Kirsten Flipkens,would like to see her playing my hero Sabine in the final. 2 players who weren't given a chance by anyone and have defied the odds

She can be so proud about her last two weeks. :hug:
Time for a well deserved break now.

Too bad her serve was completely off today. I hope she'll start to play a bit more agressive in the future as well. She tried but it wasn't enough.

That being said, she obviously played a great tournament and Bartoli played very good today.

Hopefully she'll build on this!

I'm a little late on this, but what an amazing run for her at Wimbledon :worship:
I've been her fan for years and I've always been here for her through thick and thin, so it's so nice to see her doing so well. She deserves it so much :)

Her leg is still not okay? :confused:

Hopefully she will return at the Rogers Cup.
