That game at 6-6! Kimiko would have won the match if she took her game point Still a great effort from her, she clearly belongs in main draws of slams again.


Kaia

I am thinking about how Kimiko would have done if she played Ana today

Kimi, you might have lost but you are still a wonder and a brilliant player and woman. How many 38 year olds have kept going for 170 mins? You are a legend.

Kanepi hit a slow ball that just clipped the line. Kimiko thought it was out so she just left the ball even though it was right in front of her.

Such a good fight Kimiko, you deserve to be in the Top 70!

What a shame to lose like that in the third, but Kimiko has proven herself beyond anyone's expectations.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Kanepi is my least favourite player for the day!

Poor Kimiko, if she won that match she would have had Mayr in the second round!!!

Still..could not be more amazed at what she has achieved. Should be back in the top 100 soon enough if she keeps it going.

Totally.

Still heartbreaking though.
