WICKY now ranked 51, BUT has a new trainer (yeah, again). Stefan Wauters,31,is an ex-tennisplayer and

was "sparringpartner" for Clijsters. Yanina said his "experience as player can help her a lot" and that

she feels "super good". Well, let's hope so...

Won in the first round from McHale in Holland...allez, once again...DAVAI WICKY !!!!

Hampton Charges Into First WTA Final

Jamie Hampton's forward thinking paid off big time at the Aegon International, as she outdid Caroline Wozniacki in a thriller for her third Top 10 win and first WTA final. Elena Vesnina awaits.
In a stark contrast in playing styles it was Jamie Hampton's forward thinking that beat out Caroline Wozniacki's consistency in the semifinals of the Aegon International on Friday, propelling the American into the first WTA final of her career - and at the Premier level, too.

Watch video highlights and more from Eastbourne all week, right here, right now!

Hampton, who came through the qualifying and already took out No.1 seed Agnieszka Radwanska in the first round, was in all kinds of trouble - she lost the first set, was down 4-2 in the second set and again down a break in the third set - but she never took her foot off the pedal, continuing to hit big forehands and rush the net regardless. She ended up edging the No.5-seeded Wozniacki, 67(8) 75 63.

In her post-match press conference, Hampton was asked what she thought she did best in the match.

"Stuck with it," Hampton said. "I think I stayed positive even though I had a few set points in the first set and kind of choked them away a little bit, and got down a break in the second. I think I was down 0-40 on my serve there too. But I got the hold and just stuck with it and stayed positive. I'm pretty proud.

"Caroline is tough. She sticks with it whether she's winning or losing. She made me earn what I got."

Hampton is now through to her first WTA final - she was asked afterwards how she feels about it.

"Feels good," she said. "I didn't come just to play the qualifying. I try to enter every tournament and think to get deep in the tournament, and look to win the title. So coming off my Roland Garros run I had a good amount of confidence, and I was hoping to get deep into this tournament this week too."

Hampton's final match numbers were 55 winners to 48 unforced, and winning 25 of 40 net approaches.

Meanwhile, Wozniacki had 18 winners to 24 unforced, and won eight of 17 net approaches.

"I would love to have won today - it would have been worth it to be out there for three hours," Wozniacki said. "But I thought we actually played a very good match, even though the wind was there and was so difficult. And I had my chances - I just didn't take them, and she played very well.

"Overall I'm feeling good. I feel happy to be on grass. Hopefully I'll do well at Wimbledon."

The second semifinal was a different ball game - in an all-unseeded match-up, Elena Vesnina won 11 games in a row from 1-2 in the first set to beat Yanina Wickmayer in 51 minutes, 62 60.

"I was surprised," Vesnina said. "I was expecting a very long and difficult match for both of us, because Yanina is a very dangerous player and plays aggressive. It's a good style for grass, too, and she has had great wins this week, she beat two Top 10 players. I thought it would be really tough today.

"But I think after the first set she kind of lost her concentration and didn't know what to do. Maybe the wind was affecting her game too. I think it's because of that the match went so quickly today."

Vesnina has a little bit more experience than Hampton in WTA finals - she has been to seven of them before, and though her 1-6 record isn't that flattering, the one win did come in her most recent one.

Vesnina and Hampton will be playing against each other for the first time.

"Jamie is a very talented player," Vesnina said. "She has great hands, and she's playing all over the court. She can play on the baseline and at the net. She has a great serve. It's definitely going to be a very tough match for both of us. It's her first final, as well - I'm sure she's excited about that.

"I'm expecting a tough match, and I'm really looking forward for that."

Kirsten Flipkens: More Than A Dream


After missing two months last spring due to blood clots, Kirsten Flipkens' ranking was so low she couldn't even get into Wimbledon qualifying - but her love for the sport kept her fighting back.


Kirsten Flipkens: More Than A Dream


While a lot of the focus at Wimbledon has been on the huge upsets that have taken place over the last two weeks, there has been just about as feel good a story as possible brewing in the bottom half of the draw, as Kirsten Flipkens has continued her inspiring ascent to greatness.


Having spent years as a Top 100 player, Flipkens' career - and her life - were turned upside down last spring. Blood clots caused her to sit out for two months, during which she lost the support of her federation and watched her ranking plummet. She would go as far down as No.262 in the world, and at this time last year she couldn't even get into Wimbledon qualies. Needless to say, times were tough.


"I had lost the support of the federation and not many people still believed in me," Flipkens told wtatennis.com about the ordeal. "When everything is going well, everyone's your friend. But in hard times you learn who your friends are. But I knew I could fight back and prove them all wrong."


And that she did - she racked up dozens of wins on the ITF Women's Circuit during the summer then captured her first WTA title at Québec City in the fall, finishing the year just outside the Top 50. She didn't stop there, either, breaking the Top 50 going into the Australian Open, reaching her first Grand Slam second week at the Australian Open, breaking the Top 20 after the French Open and then reaching another final just before Wimbledon, at the grass court tune-up event in 's-Hertogenbosch.


Hard to believe, but the Belgian has taken it to a whole new level at the big one,Wimbledon, making her first Grand Slam semifinal on Tuesday with a dazzling win over 2011 champion Petra Kvitova.


Having made the quarterfinals without dropping a set, the No.20-seeded Flipkens lost a tight first set but rebounded in a big way, her big forehands, lethal slices and sharp net play just too much for Kvitova, and with an emphatic ace she closed out the No.8-seeded Czech on Centre Court, 46 63 64.


"I think I still don't really realize what I've managed to go through today and what I've achieved today," Flipkens said in her press conference. "Last year, as everybody knows already, I didn't even get into the qualifying of Wimbledon. I was ranked No.262; today I'm a semifinalist in a Grand Slam.


"It's a dream - more than a dream - coming true. There are no words."


After all the setbacks, what kept her going is what keeps all the biggest champions going.


"The love for the sport," Flipkens said. "I think I've been through a lot of ups and downs throughout my career. I've had so many injuries. Even after the juniors - I was a world champion junior, then the year after I had a really bad back injury. All the doctors said my career would be over normally. But I'm just the kind of person that doesn't like to break, and I just keep on fighting back every time.


"Yeah, I don't regret my decision last year to keep fighting back."


The theme of fighting back was carried right into her latest victory over Kvitova, who wasn't just a former champion here, but a standout every year - she had won 19 of her last 21 matches here.


"I think in the first set she played really, really well," Flipkens said of Kvitova's performance. "She was putting me under pressure from the first moment. Normally my kind of game is to come to the net as often as I can. I think at 64 32 for her, that was the first time I was able to come to the net. She's just a great champion. Of course I had nothing to lose today - but you still have to go out there and do it.


"I never expected this to happen in my life. It was already a great performance that I managed to get into the fourth round in the Australian Open this year, but being in the semifinals of a Grand Slam, of the biggest tournament of the year, it has no words. I never expected I would come this far."
