Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Great performance by Kaia and was so proud of how she held it together
Even more importantly, 140 points
And a chance for 250 if Kvitova is still Mediocre
Sharapova would be a bit of a tall ask
If she can keep this up then maybe she would consider a WC into Prague to try and get a RG seeding

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

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

What a good score

Next match is either Hantuchova (I'd really like Kaia to get more wins against her), or Kvitova most likely. They have always had long and thrilling matches, so I'm not sure about this one. Though it'd probably be good to see how far or close she is to the best players.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia's own words:"It was a good match today. I had a little big arena fright in the beginning . I actually like to play at bigger arenas. When I got over it I played aggressively and did not want to let her to build her game. Compared to Portugal Open, the balls fly here a bit faster and bounce a bit higher. This was an advantage for me. I played well today."

3rd match on court 3, good time for me as I can surely watch it

Kaia

Very happy that she won this match, I was very certain she would lose

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

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia into Madrid R3 !

Sweet revenge on Navarro. Surprised Kaia beat her so easily this time. Hantuchova next who upset Kvitova. Hantuchova leads Head To Head 3-1. All these meetings were on hard, Kaia and Hantuchova never met on clay before. The tournament is already successful with wins over Pennetta and Navarro. But it would be great if Kaia can reach QF.

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

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia gets Daniela
Lets get another Brisbane result
Apparently Court 3 is so ridiculously fast it's embarrassing so that may favour Hantuchova unless Kaia can really get on the front foot

h2h before 2010 is really not reflective of kaia's capabilities. she was erratic and overwight until the 2010 season. if kaia plays like y'day, dani will not stand a chance. also dani's match ended late and it was a 2 hours+ affair. it's on kaia's racquet again.

fast courts suit kaia well, no worries. she can outhit most players on the tour and does not appear to have lost anything in agility and speed following the surgery. unlike with kvitova, i don't see why playing dani would create any psycological pressure for kaia either.

good luck, kaia!

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

YES!!!!!!!!


Good stats too! I mean positive winners-ue ratio

I hope this injury isn't very serious.

She'll play Sharapova the clay queen next. If she'd win more games than last time, I guess it'd be already good.

Kaia has had a good run now already though

63 64
Never won a match in Madrid before, now 3 in a row and QF.

at Kaia signing autographs and blocking Daniela who looked really pissed, this was hilarious

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

250 points in Madrid, this is half of her RG points. She now should stay in top 100, no matter how she will do in Brussels and RG.

Yeah, at least the pressure is somewhat off. I thought she'd have to go back to the ITF tour after she lost to Minella Now it looks like she'll be fine with the form improving, just has to stay away from the injuries

Looks like she's playing just one grass tournament before Wimbledon, in Holland.
