Grass is always green on Kiri's lawn

Bye bye red dirt, hello green/yellowish grass!

Looks like Kiri is taking next week off.
Then its UNICEF Open, ’s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands and Wimbledon.

What results will make Kiri fans happy?

Re: Grass is always green on Kiri's lawn

If she doesn't lose against player ranked below her I would be quite happy

At least 1/4 in 's-Hertogenbosch, 1/2 would be great.

At least 1/16 in Wimbledon to defend her points. 1/8 would be a good performance, I really hope Maria could do this, the draw will be determinant. Anything better and Maria would be a tennis goddess in my eyes (is she already one ?)

Re: Grass is always green on Kiri's lawn

First time I watched Kiri in Rosmalen she lost to Cirstea.
Then beat Olaru and lost to Flipkens.
So I'd say QF this year!

Re: Grass is always green on Kiri's lawn

She always seems to struggle a bit on grass despite having a good all court game with beautiful volleys. Why do you guys think that is?

I think the fast pace grass courts give Kiri less time to retrieve balls.
Kiri does have a good volleys and net play. Perhaps serve and volley could be her secret weapon at Wimbledon.

is that why Kiri was practicing them at Rome?

that requires one handed backhand slice. I'm not sure if that is part of Kiri's repertoire.
