Flipkens has visited Auckland every year since 2013. She reached the quarter-finals in 2013 and semi-finals in 2014. She won five games in a row in the 2016 tournament to make her way through qualifying into the quarter-finals where she lost to fellow qualifier Tamira Paszek. In 2012, she developed life-threatening blood clots, which drastically reduced her ranking. Her comeback led to her best grand slam performance at the 2013 Wimbledon Championships, where she reached the semi-final, losing to the eventual champion, Marion Bartoli. On 22 December 2013, she won the award for Sportswoman of the Year in Belgium.
