Kirsten Flipkens First Roster Pick for New York Empire 

With their first pick in the 2017 Mylan World TeamTennis roster draft, the New York Empire selected the electric Belgian veteran Kirsten Flipkens, who will be making her debut in the league.

Having risen as high as 13 in the WTA rankings, she’s reached the semifinals of Wimbledon, and has more years of Fed Cup service than any other player in her country’s history. “Flipper” has been playing on the pro tour since 2003.

She had a memorable three-set win over Venus Williams in the first round of the 2016 Rio Olympics.
