Re: Kiki Bertens

Didn't get/ask a WC, so seeded #1 in Wimbledon qualifying. She drew Eri Hozumi in the first round and is actually playing at the moment. Had a bit of a slow start going down 0-2*, but Kiki is back on track now, leading 3-2*.

thats why its important to play some matches on grass before. it can make that little difference on those important points if you have that bit more confidence . especially for kiki who has much difficulties playing on this surface.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Struggling so hard, saved another 2 breakpoints just like in her last servicegames, leading 43* in the 2nd...

EDIT: Kiki takes the 2nd set 64! First game in which she got breakpoints and took her 2nd setpoint. Hopefully she can pull through now...

Re: Kiki Bertens

Down 46 64 23*, she can't break Hozumi for shit saved breakpoints once again in this servicegame.

Hozumi's serve is decent, especially for someone her height, but Kiki just can't seem to hurt her on the return.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Hozumi is not such an easy draw, I think she is a good grass player judging from stats.
Let's hope Kiki can fight through.

i dont know about her being a good grass player, but she is certainly much more comfortable on this surface then kiki.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Lost 46 64 46... Lost the match in the first set really... Very disappointing loss, this will not go down well on TF.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Agreed
I dont get why she didnt request a wild card and played Rosmalen, rather than a stupid Bundesliga match (which she even lost!). I have to agree with FMD89 that a few matches on grass would have been very useful here.

Re: Kiki Bertens

It's not her favorite surface as she said before, but I think she is better on grass than she thinks she is.
No warm up tournament, so no preperation/adjustment to the grass. Her winning streak at RG made the time between clay and grass a little bit shorter, but then again she still had time to play last week and I don't think she ever was on a ITF/WTA warm up tournament EL to begin with so she had no intentions to play before Wimbledon. Agree with Martao that playing Bundesliga was indeed a bit strange and didn't help.

Such a shame that she couldn't bring the RG form and confidence onto the grass

Not sure where she is playing next. Nothing on her website. Well, they didn't mention Wimbledon Q either

EDIT: looked up Hozumi on the ITF website as I didn't know her. Before RG she was RU at a 50k grass tournament in Japan, and lost in a close match to Gajdosova in a 50k R1 also on grass. Also 2 times 25k RU at a grass tournament in Japan in 2013. She def Bencic in 2 sets in one of those tournaments. So she seems to like playing on grass.

Was this during her Q match?


Back to clay again On EL of WTA Bucharest (07/07) & WTA Bastad (14/07).
She will have to play Q for both, because pre-RG rankings are used for these tournaments.

Re: Kiki Bertens

So stupid that she has to play Q while players with a lower ranking get in

Bucharest is quite a weak tournament so hopefully she can qualify. I hope it's also a 16 player draw with only 2 rounds.
