Eastbourne R1: (11) Wozniacki def Flipkens 63 64

Caroline's first match win since the semis of Charleston.
She played 3 finals here, won Eastbourne twice. Very comfortable here when she's healthy
Petkovic next

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Eastbourne R1: First Footfault Wozniacki d. Flipkens 6-3, 6-4

Good 'grass court' start from defending champion. Wozniacki controls a match with a great ground stroke and focus. Her slice backhand is working well on this surface. but need to work on a short ball more.

Flipkens has a good touch but lacks of consistency.

And hot topic of the day bout' Wozniacki' s footfault.

"I never had a foot fault in my life. This is not the first one" she said. I think she is very forgetful about her footfault situation. that happen before

https://youtu.be/va9F0dHInJI

but this time at Eastbourne I think she's right. It's not look like footfault for sure.

Saw the end of the match and it looked great!

Go Caroline!

Who cares of hypertrophic weapons when the player on the court moves like music?

Re: Eastbourne R1: (11) Wozniacki def Flipkens 63 64

Flipkens was fun today but she turned it on a bit too late. Lots of errors and poor shot selection at the start. Great fight at the end though (she was 4-0 down in the second set and ended up saving multiple MPs in great fashion).

Defending champ served well at times but did not look that convincing to me, all those lapses in concentration. Even going up 6-3 she was broken twice and whining about her foot fault. Was doing surprisingly well in the slice-on-slice battles though, and has come through draws playing much worse than this before, so you never know.

Lovely exchange at the net (as usual with K-Flip).

Was not a good serving day for Caroline. When Caroline won set 1 in Paris 60 I was looking at her draw and thinking she might have a good major. Then she got worse and worse and lost
Here she was also getting worse and worse and Flipkens had a point for 55 in set 2. Carloine has got to focus and serve better.

As simple as I expected it to be, with some good shots at times, loved the forehand slice down the line winner!

Petkovic could trouble Caroline however, as she plays more aggressive and will know how to move Caroline around to draw errors.

Flipkens really on a decline. Worst grass season ever for her.
