I can recall at least 4 matches within the last 2 years where she went up a break or double break in the third and subsequently lost 6 games in a row. Also she double faulted on setpoint in the first set for Cirstea, which she also did in her match against Ivanovic at the Australian Open. This was a big opportunity for Kiki to win some points

Re: Kiki Bertens

Didn't expect when watching livescores during 1st and bit of 2nd set
Kiki did have chances in the 1st set too, but 0/6 in BP.
Choke/injury from Tatishvili or maybe Kiki kept fighting and found her rhythm. Is always tough not knowing what's going by just checking livescores

Over the match 66% 1st serves in (71 in the 1st, 48 in 2nd and 81 in 3rd) winning 69%.
9 aces / 3 DF
5/14 BP won
4/7 BP saved

McHale will be tough

Re: Kiki Bertens

Why would Kiki have nothing to lose against McHale?
I would argue that she should win this match, and even when we consider the arduous progress she made the past few months, this should be at least close to 50/50. So, I'd say there is definitely pressure on Kiki. She really needs to start winning a few of this type of matches and I think she's perhaps too much aware of this.

Anyway, great fighting against Tatishvili, once again.

Re: Kiki Bertens

I think the only pressure that she feels is the pressure she puts on herself. She wants to win and get higher up the rankings after her ankle operation.

McHale has had an up and down season, she reached the final in Acapulco but she has also had some surprising first round exits.

Picture from the match:

Re: Kiki Bertens

I dont know so much about Christina McHale, but it seems like her best results are on clay court?

Game is started; I guess no live stream on court 5?
Currently Kiki leads 1*-0 and AD, saved 3 BP already!

Re: Kiki Bertens

It looks like Kiki is gonna bagel the first set: 5*-0, 3/3 in BP conversion en 6/6 in saved BP (!).
Let's see if she can finish it off quickly and see how the 2nd set goes!

Re: Kiki Bertens

She missed 3 setpoints at *50 and it's back to 52* now, hopefully she can serve out the set at this occassion.

The match is closer then it looks though, set is already lasting more than 40 minutes

2 double faults and 53* don't choke please

Re: Kiki Bertens

She bags the set, 6-3! needs 5 SP's to do it, but she got it done.

Now she also gets to serve first in the 2nd set.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Yeah me too.
She has maximum pressure on McHale serve though, judging on the statistics, so if she can control her service games (4 DF's is too much!) it should be very doable to win this match.

Believe me, in women's tennis 4 DF's isn't much at all. It's dead common. And Kiki compensates for it, she has hit 5 aces so far

Leading 63 30* now, keep it up

Re: Kiki Bertens

1-3. I suppose McHale has to win a bit on serve too but...

It may be dead common, but thats because of nutcases like Arantxa Rus
In my opinion it should be possible to fix that as a full-prof tennis player. Especially if you have a good serve, like Kiki does. And I do agree that you can compensate for it by hitting a lot of direct points, but 5 aces seems too low to compensate for 4 DF's. But of course, we cannot see statistics on unreturned serves or easy 2nd balls; so it may very well do.

Re: Kiki Bertens

Well they can't hit one too safe either, because that's almost as good as a double fault at WTA level. So it's tough.

Anyway two break points for 5-1

Re: Kiki Bertens

Couldn't convert, 63 *42, won the first point on her serve.

EDIT: fires another 2 aces, up to 7 in total, leading 63 52*
