Rain stopped play at Wimbledon for much of Saturday and Flipkens and Kerber had something of a wait before they were eventually able to get down to business. Flipkens gave of her best during a first set that she won 3-6 after just half an hour of play.
The short break after the first set appeared to have given Kerber a boost and the second set saw the German take command. The second set ended 6-3 to Kerber and the match went to a third, decisive set. The third set saw Flipkens slip further away, taking just two games. The third set ended 6-2 and it was game, set and match to the German.
Last year Kirsten Flipkens surprised many by making it into the semi-finals at Wimbledon. However, it was a different story this year. Kirsten Flipkens was the last Belgian still competing at Wimbledon.
