Sorribes-Tormo Hoping to Improve Melbourne Record

This will be the fifth time that Sorribes-Tormo has made the main draw in Melbourne, and she is looking to improve on a record that has seen the Spaniard reach the second round only once.

Primarily regarded as a clay court player during her time on the ITF tour, where she won nine titles on the surface, and finished runner-up a further six times, nevertheless it was on hard courts that she won her first WTA title last year, defeating Eugenie Bouchard to win the Mexican Open.

She went on to reach the third round of the US Open, her best result to date in a Grand Slam.

The Spaniard has yet to find her best form in 2022. At the Melbourne Summer Set event. She had to battle to beat Beatriz Hadad Maia of Brazil, the world number 88, eventually getting the better of her after three sets.

However, she then endured a straight sets’ loss to Kamilia Rakhimova of Russia, ranked 116 in the world.

Flipkens in the Twilight of Her Career

Flipkens, instantly recognisable as one of the few players on tour to wear glasses is now in the veteran stages of her career.

She first entered the main draw of the Australian Open in 2007, and, with a few exceptions has been back every year since, although she has never been further than the fourth round and that was back in 2013, the year she attained her highest world ranking of 13.

Only once in her previous five visits to the tournament did she get beyond the first round.

Her world ranking has tumbled in recent years, and now she has to try and qualify for events where she was once an automatic starter.

That was the case in Adelaide this week, where she beat Katarzyna Piter of Poland, but was then knocked out by the Australian world number 135, Storm Sanders.
