RE: Wimby Semis: Bartoli vs, Flipkens
Nope, I go with the Belgian in three sets. Her game is a more natural fit to the grass and she will run Marion (one of my favorite players) around until she tires and starts to err. Flipkens made 5 UFEs in the entire match against Kvitova--5!!!!!!

If she doubles her UFEs against the Frenchie she will still win. Her slice will save her.

Virgil Cane is the name ...

I voted for Bartoli in 2, then read your post, and now I'm thinking Flipkens will win. Undecided

Flip is one tough cookie. I remember a match her and Aga played at Miami or IW this year. It went 3 sets and Kirsten had all kind of chances and couldn't close the deal in the 2nd set. Aga hit some around the back shot they played on Sportscenter for days. I think she wins this match and plays in her first GS final. How bout them apples?

I forgot that was Flipkens, but the shot was incredible:

Bartoli is heavy, she is carrying a few extra pounds,

[Image: 201307021012367394351-p2@stats.com.jpg]
she may have difficulty with a lean Flipkens but for sure, Marion has experience on her side. She has been here before, although a long time ago.
[Image: 201307021112403374512-p2@stats.com.jpg]
Flipkens has the better all around game and plays good on grass but so does Bartoli.
This is where Kirsten's ride ends.
Bartoli in 2 is my pick.

RE: Wimby Semis: Bartoli vs. Flipkens
Flipkens to me has been the surprise packet soo far in this tournament
I mean in 2012 she could not make the qualifying round at Wimbledon
Flipkens has had injury woes as well.She has a good game on grass
Her bhand slice is a delight.
Flipkens should be soo proud of herself making the s/finals.
I wish her good luck in her match against Bartoli.I have picked her in 3 sets to win.

Flipkens won Junior Wimbledon 2003...so this is not new territory for her.I like her game and to imagine her playing Radwanska in the final..that would be a treat.

Just read from TW.Com that Ivanovic has parted ways with Nigel Spears and will team up with Ricardo Sanchez who currently coaches Verdasco.

You made my day Tented - I loved that shot. Didn't she make a tweener in the same match or was it against Bartoli? It's nice to see every time she makes itSmile

I go with Flipkens today i think she made a really good match in the quarter so why not todaySmile

Congrats to Marion Bartoli. She is one of the most akward players I have ever seen: very very weird. It is impossible for me to root for her, but I admire her persistance and mental strength, so congrats to making the final. Let's just hope she doesn't win a tournament that so many better players have not (Henin, Clijsters to name a few).

Agree Denis. The weirder stat of her career is that she has beaten the top Belgian player in the SF for both Wimby final runs.
