Kirsten Flipkins may dream of a semi-final at Rosmalen, but Shelby Rogers is too strong | Women Tennis Players – Rosmalin (Ned)

Shelby Rogers 42
Kirsten Flickins 186

Kirsten Flipkens was unable to advance to the semi-finals in one of her last singles tournaments. After a solid start against Shelby Rogers, I fell silent in the second and third sets.

A week ago, Kirsten Flipkens announced that her solo career would be ending after Wimbledon. In Rosmalen she already has a delicious dessert in store for herself.

The Flipkens immediately grabbed Shelby Rogers by the throat (0-3) and won the first set. But then the American became more and more in control of the atypical game of the Belgian.

The second set ended quickly, and Flipkens couldn’t make up for the break in the fifth game of the third set.

Flipkens: “Satisfied with my week here”

Despite the defeat, Flipkins was not experienced in burlap then. “I am very happy with my week here. If I had been told before the tournament that I would be in the quarter-finals, I would have signed immediately.”

“Rogers is a very good player. It was a very difficult match. I started very well and had difficulties in my game. From the second set I started to deal with it better tactically. A little bit. In the third set, a break was enough to make the difference. And that’s the case for lawn tennis.”

The Flipkens, who competed in her last singles tournament, is taking a week off before the Eastbourne Championships, which begins on June 19. “I’ve been registered for qualifications in Berlin, but it starts tomorrow. It’s not practical. I’m going to take advantage of that to allow my body to recover.”
