Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I wished both Kaia and Jürgen could be at least 3rd matches. I get home around 5pm and both matches are very likely over by then

Anyway, good luck to both

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I could only watch like 2 games in the end I liked what I saw though. Kaia served the match to love, including 2 aces. That was great to see for a change And this time not even Anu Säärits couldn't jinx it

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia’s own words: "Physically I feel great, my tennis was not the best today. And well, this is the first match at Grand Slam, the atmosphere here is much different from an ordinary tournament, it takes some time to get use to it. There were many Estonians watching today as well. I hope I feel better in the second match.

As I have said before, I play doubles for fun. Last year with Arvidsson we also played with Huber and Raymond and we were close to a set win - we’ll see tomorrow. It is not easy for them as well, the first round, and we are tough opponents. My partner plays doubles very well.

I have never played with Begu before but I have seen her play. She hits with topspin, and plays points – does not hit randomly. There is no point to predict anything, it is important that I feel well and play well, then I am happy.”

6-3 7-5 Straight Sets

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Sadly, its too late to follow Kaias match (if only match before didn't go to 5 ) so I was wondering if those watching could comment on the match so that us who couldn't watch can know what happened???

Thanks

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia defeated Begu 64 61

1st set was intense. Begu managed to go up 4-2*, and hadn't faced any BPs on serve. They had many long rallies, one with 19 shots, another with 24 shots. Though I felt some of those rallies could have been shorter, but Begu was on the right spots most of the time (well this will happen against Wozniacki also).
At 3-4* Kaia was up 40-0*, but Begu got to deuce. It was a quite long game, but Kaia managed to break. The next 2 games didn't come very easily, but they came.

2nd set wasn't really great. Well, Begu's level dropped. First game was quite long, full of errors from both sides, with Begu making as many UEs as she did in the 1st set altogether. After winning the first game, Kaia pretty much cruised. Though the little slip when she didn't hold her serve was unnecessary. But it's not supposed to be that easy anyway. Ended with her only ace in the match


Next up Caroline Wozniacki.

But firstly, doubles tomorrow
