Kirsten Flipkens is one of those players that play better on grass. "I know how to play on grass and I love the game. My net approaches are fine and my serve pays off. If there would be a specific world ranking only taking into account results on grass, I guess I would be high up", she told Het Laatste Nieuws.
Flipkens had a slow start in the tournament, but seems to be finding her pace. "I felt better than Tuesday, and I hope to become better throughout the event", she said. Flipkens didn't waste much time and sent Dominquez packing 6-2, 6-1 on Thursday.
The next test will learn us much more, as Flipkens now meets Germany's Angelique Kerber, the 9th seed on the London grass. "She's a tough opponent and left-handed. But I have nothing to lose."
