Will Kanepi win a title this year?

No WTA title for Kanepi
her last ITF title is in 2005....

Well, as she's climbing up in 2009, what do you think about her maiden title?
is it possible?

Re: Will Kanepi win a title this year?

even if she beat jankovic in dubai I dont see her winning a title soon and certainly not such a big tournament as dubai.
She's good but still have many weaknesses and a quite unidimensional game. I wont be surprised if she lost today against vesnina despite a lead of 1 set and a break.
She 's not strong mentally.

Re: Will Kanepi win a title this year?

She is not fast enough her defensive skills need lots of work....

shes only good when shes given time to attack, Jankovic gave her lots of time to attack

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Re: Will Kanepi win a title this year?

Big thing: she is playing pretty much only the elite events. She's good but not good enough to regularly challenge for Tier I and II titles. She'd be a queen at Tier III, IV events, but she's too good to keep playing them and wants to improve by facing the best.

Same thing happened with Kournikova, Hantuchova, Petrova... if you reach a certain level before you are really going to challenge for every big title, you aren't going to have much of a title haul until you CAN challenge for every big title.

Re: Will Kanepi win a title this year?

Isn't clay Kaia's favorite surface? She won RG junior title few years ago... Of course she is more than capable of winning a lower level tournament.
