“A difficult task, but not impossible”, described Flipkens her party in advance. Two times previously took a ‘Flipper’ the size of the double grandslamwinnares. On the grass in Mallorca (2016) and ’s-Hertogenbosch (2013) drew them all to the longest end. Today she repeated, supported by the enthusiastic audience in the Lange Munte in Kortrijk, this feat. A true three sets set the tone for the Belgian ladies.
Later today it's the turn of Alison Van Uytvanck (WTA 52). She is the opposite of former toptienspeelster Carla Suarez Navarro (WTA 27). The winner of the encounter between Belgium and Spain, playing tennis next year in Wereldgroep I, the loser will be in Wereldgroep II come true.
