Exclamation WWW US Open QF: Keys vs Kanepi

Whats wrong with you guys, no www thread on this...its grand slam QF guys.

Kanepi is undefeated in hard with 7-0 record this year. Haven't seen her play, what is her playing style and how is her serve? Can Keys drive Kanepi out with her power. Looks like Kanepi lucked out with the draw until now.

Re: WWW US Open QF: Keys vs Kanepi

Well, she has been undefeated on hard this year and I so wish it would continue to stay that way, but I have a feeling Keys will take that match easily. Kaias exhaustion was already obvious in last match, Kasatkina lost because Kaia just wanted to win it more. Kaia had lots of UE, but also decent amount of winners....she was so up and down...she even choked, like on her best days, but then pulled herself together again.
If she can make her serve work, then it is one of the bests in womens tennis.
Right now I am not even sure what her playing style is. She herself said she is just so freaking happy, she cant stop smiling, being in QF so soon after comeback, every win after qualies have been bonus. She said having no target, no expectations, nothing to prove is the best way to play tennis...
So...she will probably lose to Keys today...but I would still put my money on Kaia, just in case!

Kaia works hard to stay fit. However this will be her 8th consecutive match and her body might not hold the exhaustion if it goes to a third set. Also a night match in Ashe stadium against a US American might affect her nerves negatively. It's been long time since she was under those big spotlights. Unlike Kasatkina, Keys wouldn't show mercy if she chokes serving out sets, if ever she gets to that point. Normally I wouldn't be hopeful about Kaia's chances of winning this but she feels no pressure and super motivated now, so anything can happen. In their only meeting Kaia was the winner in two sets but that was on Madrid clay
