Tennis - Kirsten Flipkens is named Belgium´s Sportswoman of the Year

Tennis - After the grand slam winning achievements of Kim Clijsters and Justine Henin, it might be tough for another Belgian woman to scale those same heights. But Kirsten Flipkens has done enough in 2013 to secure Belgium’s Sportswoman of the Year award.

Flipkens received 604 votes to finish in top place while second place Valerie Courtois (volleyball) received 210 votes. Flipkens went all the way to the semi-finals of the Wimbledon singles event this year and also broke into the top 20 of the world rankings for the first time, a decade after her success as junior.
