Kirsten Flipkens says that while she gives Marion Bartoli full credit for her victory in the semifinals of Wimbledon, she was feeling pain in her knee from the first set on.

“I fell in the first set,” Flipkens said. “Straightaway I didn’t feel anything, but I fell on my bad knee. A couple of games later I started to feel a really sharp pain like I had four weeks ago. I’m really trying to handle it already for four weeks. I’m already playing with the tape so long. It definitely needs a rest.”
