The Comeback Kiick

You can officially start calling her The Comeback Kiick. It’s a little kitschy, sure, but you get the point. Down 1-3 in the third set of her second round match at the Palmetto Pro Open in Sumter, South Carolina today, Floridian Allie Kiick turned it all around and never looked back, winning the final five games of a 7-5 2-6 6-3 victory over Canadian Katherine Sebov, the tournament’s number 2 seed.

With the win, Kiick moves into the quarterfinals of just her second tournament in nearly two years after undergoing multiple surgeries on both knees. “Feel good” story? Yessir!

Way to go, Allie! Keep rolling!
