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

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

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

Flipkens was fun today but she turned it on a bit too late. :sad: 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. :help:

Flipkens was looking a whole lot better towards the end of the match.
It would have been interesting if she managed to steal the second set.

This is the best showing from Wozniacki in a while, though.
She was looking more like herself in terms of movement.

Considering she just got married, she did look sharp for a lot of this. Flipkens was once in a Wimbledon SF
