Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Both times she was coming back from an injury break. A pattern?

------------------
Kanepi SemiFinals Press Conference Date : 2012.09.22 18:57:13


Q.Do you have a special game plan for your match against Wozniacki tomorrow?
A.Well, I have played her before so usually I try to be patient, not to take high risks, because she can get a lot of balls back in the play.

Q.It is your second time here in Korea. What is the difference between the first time and second time?
A. The prize money.


Q. You are 2-3 in head to head against Wozniacki, how did you play in the most recent match you played
against her?
A. It was in French Open Third round and I beat her in three sets. It was quite hard and long match, we always had tough matches.

Q.You made 8 doubles faults today, why did you serve poorly in this match compared to the last one?
A. I did not feel the serve rhythm very well, and I felt little tightness in my arm, so maybe it is because I played 4 matches so far, so it was difficult to serve.

Q. You played very offensive yesterday but you played very defensive today. Was that part of your game strategy or was your shot just off?
A. Well I did not feel very good with my shots today, I thinkI hit the frame alot of times too, I did not feel confident to play aggressive.

Q. Your backhand seemed to be less stable than your forehand today. Was your backhand off today?
A. I think my backhand is okay, maybe we can talk about that tomorrow again.

Q. Your next opponent plays more defensively. Are you going to play defensive as today or go for more shots and play offensive?
A. If my shots are good tomorrow I will be aggressive if I can, If I don't, I will try to be patient and hit balls back and wait for my chance.

Q. How do you feel physically right now?
A. My calves hurt and my butt as well. Otherwise I am fine.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Wasn't able to post the last couple of days. But congrats to Kaia on making it into the final

Hope she can repeat her result from this years' RG, but with a little less drama
TBH didn't expect her to make the final in her first tournament back, so either way it's a great week

lol @ the Q&A

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia lost 16 06 . This was sad to see Wozniacki played very well while so many errors were coming from Kaia.I thought this could be a bit more competitive.I had hope until the very last moment in fact. Anyway, a good week overall and it was over expectations.Gotta be happy with this final appearance.

GL to her against SSE in Tokyo.Shame she won't have a day-off.GO Kaia!

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Wozniacki just was that much better today. A sad scoreline still.


Two last matches have been rather bad by Kaia, I hope next match she plays better against Soler-Espinosa.

Good luck in Tokyo.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia commented on her FB wall that she was just bad today because of her muscle tension. She felt like the slowest tennis player in the world. She was the happiest about her second round match in Seoul. After that her muscled started hurting.

Good luck Kaia and Anett in 2014.
Also Wozniacki, Jankovic, Ivanovic, Stosur, Gajdosova and K-Kookie!!

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

A bit embarrassing scoreline, but overall a good tournament for Kaia of course! Hopefully her muscles are not that tense anymore tomorrow when she plays Soler
