Against Roberta Vinci in the semifinal. In fact, she's lost all their previous meetings (and on clay)

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

First meeting was in 2006,so understandable.Second was in Rome 2008,Vinci at home but she took a set off her.Then Kaia reached RG QF though I believe she'll win this time,if she stays mentally strong...

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia’s own words: „I played mostly well in the first set. It was a bit hectic for both of us, sometimes it worked out well and sometimes it did not. My opponent fell in the first set and there was quite a long break. After that she made many mistakes. In the second set I was leading 3:1 when she started to hit very flat and brave and it all worked out for her. In the deciding set I was also leading 3:1, but could not manage to keep the lead. The match was very competitive, I was a bit more confident and aggressive in the end. It was very difficult match and small nuances decided the winner. Today I made it, it was may day I guess. It is nice to win tough matches.

Tomorrow I play the first match on the centre court. We’ll see, maybe it will be a bit postponed as we are expecting rain here. It was a long time ago when I last played Vinci, it does not mean anything that I have so far not won a match against her. Tomorrow is a totally new game. She has a good sliced backhand, I must be patient and wait for my moments to attack.“

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Nice win over Cetkovska, Kaia!

SF vs Vinci. She is so overranked and annoying. Kick her ass

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Kaia will rise to no 25 if she wins the final and Sara Errani loses

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Madrid's draw is not kind at all. Safarova is an uncomfortable opponent for her.

But whatever, we've still got Estoril's run

Kaia's own words: "It was a good match. In the first set I played well and I was also lucky - many balls hit the line. It was totally my set. In the second set I hit the same way but I made more mistakes - did not make the lines. The opponent gained some confidence and started to play better and it got complicated. When I was 5:2 down, I thought that, well, I need to keep trying and see what can be done - do not give up. Then the tables started to turn. In overall, I felt good through the match, I knew that was playing well.

Tomorrows opponent is tough, I have played with her couple of years back. Final is final, I must play well in order to win it."
