The precious exchange of messages between Halep and the now-retired Flipkens

Withdrawals are a special moment for any player. If such a circumstance occurs in a tournament such as Wimbledon 2022where everything tends to be magnified, and before a champion of the tournament itself and an icon of the last decade like Simona Halepthe occasion may be even more unique than expected. Kirsten Flipkens seems to have left a nice mark in the women’s locker room, something that can be seen by the nice words that the Romanian dedicated to her after beating her in the last game of her career. “Congratulations Kirsten for an incredible journey. You have inspired me and many other players. Thank you for always pushing me to reach my best level. Best of luck in the next chapter”a beautiful message that was answered by the Belgian. “Thank you for the nice words, champion. It was a pleasure sharing the court with you today. Good luck for the remainder of the tournament.”
