Kirilenko was up 4-0 in the first and tried to hurt Koukie by playing some heavy-spin to her very static backhand. But Klara played a very smart match and is definitely an underrated player. Her shots were extremely precise and she had balls in the deciding moments.
Also she was fistpumping which surprised me since she usually looks like she's attending a funeral when she's winning.
