Fed Cup Playoffs: Belgium - Estonia

maybe we just need a thread for this

Kim won the first set 6-4 vs Ani.
Playing good sometimes, but again the classic dip at 4-1.

now 3-2 second set, Kim just asked for the physio. There seems to be a problem with her toes or her right foot. Sam looked at it, but no real treatment was given.
But she's playing again now!

Re: Fed Cup Playoffs: Belgium - Estonia

6-4 / 6-2!

not as easy as she should have won, but she was clearly the better player.

she said it's always different playing in Fed Cup compared to a normal tournament
about the toe, at a certain moment her food got stuck and she felt her toe crack, but it's probably nothing too serious, she'll put the physio to work after the match

Re: Fed Cup Playoffs: Belgium - Estonia

Clijsters naar ziekenhuis met voetblessure


Kim Clijsters gaat zaterdagnamiddag voor de zekerheid naar het ziekenhuis om foto's te laten nemen van haar linkervoet, die ze blesseerde in haar wedstrijd tegen Maret Ani (6-4, 6-2 winst) in de Fed Cup-ontmoeting tegen Estland in Hasselt.

"Het gaat al iets beter, maar voor de zekerheid ga ik straks toch naar het ziekenhuis om zeker te zijn dat er niets gebroken is", aldus Clijsters, die zich mistrapte bij 3-2 in de tweede set. "Ik voelde mijn voet kraken, net onder mijn dikke teen, en ik voelde onmiddellijk steken. Ik heb dan geprobeerd de rally's korter te houden en de wedstrijd snel uit te spelen. Ik heb wel nog pijn, maar het goede nieuws is dat het niet slechter wordt, dus ik denk niet dat het echt serieus is".

Over de wedstrijd zelf was Clijsters redelijk tevreden. "Ik vond mijn match wat wisselvallig", vertelde ze. "Het was wat zoeken in de eerste set, vooral door het rare ritme van Ani. Door haar trage spel had ik de neiging om ook trager te bewegen. Ik moet gewoon heel veel trainen en ballen slaan om weer aan het gravel gewoon te geraken. Elke wedstrijd is dus goed meegenomen, en ik ben nu gewoon blij dat het punt voor België binnen is. Op papier zijn we natuurlijk sterker, maar het is de Fed Cup en Estland heeft ook een goede ploeg rond zich. Het is dus niet altijd simpel".

Re: Fed Cup Playoffs: Belgium - Estonia

sounds like they just want too be sure and got a bit scared because they only found out Justine had a fracture after almost 2 days

Clijsters to hospital with foot injury


"It's already a bit better, but just to be sure that nothing's broken I'll go to the hospital. I felt my foot crack, just under my big toe, and I immediately felt a stabbing pain. I then tried to keep the rallies shorter and finish the match quickly. I still have some pain, but the good news is that it isn't getting worse, so I don't think it's too serious."

About the match Clijsters was relatively happy. "I think my play was instable. I had to find my game in the first set, especially because of the strange rythm Ani plays. Because of her slow game I had the tendency to move slower. I just have to practice alot and hit a lot of balls to get used to the gravel. Every match is good to play and now I'm just happy to have the point for Belgium. On paper, we're stronger of course, but it's Fed Cup and Estonia also has a good team. So it's not easy."

Good win Kim!!!! I hope if the toe is a bit of a problem she doesn't play tomorrow and risk further aggravating the injury.

Re: Fed Cup Playoffs: Belgium - Estonia

Hopefully nothing but a few days off will fix, to be safe.
