Not a bad section but a very tough first round. A year or 2 ago I would have liked Kiri's chances against Stephens to out smart her and outmanuever her but not now. Sloane goes on walkabouts and plays too defensively for a girl so strong and fast. But Kiri will need Sloane to had one of those off days for this Kiri to even be in the match. Stephens is bigger, stronger and faster than Kiri is and she's on the way up while Kiri is on the way down with her body breaking down so why do I think Kiri has a chance in this match? Experience. It's on Kiri's side and Sloane cannot be thrilled to have drawn Kiri in the first round. If the real Kiri shows up it should be a good match. If that is.

Welp.

At least she has no points to defend

Re: Topshelf Open

She lost 3-6, 0-6 in her doubles QF, so she can go in London for Wimbledon party. :-)

right! Maybe finally it's going into the right direction! Barthel always can be a tough opponent, you even can lose to her if you are in good/normal shape. And unlike Kiri, she already has many matches on grass under her belt.

btw, in doubles, Maria and Wickmayer won 6-0 6-0! That could help to regain confidence and any match practice helps now

Re: Topshelf Open

Too bad that Barthel didn't choke, but nice to read that wrist is better.

Re: Topshelf Open

2 nice points from Kiri in the last game, but Barthel holds at 30 and wins 6-3 6-2

Maria didn't play too bad at times, she probably would have won against a weaker opponent. Barthel was too solid today

Re: Topshelf Open

Seems like she can hit her topspin 2hbh now. She is still rusty, but that is a good sign, her wrist must be feeling better.
