kaia needs her A game to win this one. Lisicki played great in the third. I don't know how consistent is she. kaia got her job done in less time, true, but mentally it was a tough one.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

So happy for Kaia! Almost back to top 20 now with these points and should surely be seeded for USO.
There are chances to go even further, but Lisicki plays very well and it will be a tough task. Kaia has to play better than today. I thought Laura would be beaten after losing the TB, but she kept going strong. Glad that Kaia could close it in two, the 5 MP-s were nerve-wrecking

Btw, just noticed that there is a 500-point gap between places 20 and 22
So not that close to top 20 after all yet.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

So happy for Kaia

This is really amazing and a very nice surprise to be in the QF here Unfortunately I couldn't watch the match, but really good to see she was able to win it in 2 close sets with the crowd behind Laura
That must not have been easy.

Lisicki will be tough on grass and it was such a big upset she beat Serena here. Real big match for both of them ofcourse having a chance to reach the SF.

Will be cheering for both of them And hope it will be a great mach

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Good Job Kaia!!! Knew you could do it.

Now a shocker QF line-up.

I was hoping for Lisicki to win over Serena but didn't really thought she could do it. What a shocker.

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

Btw, delfi is also going to show internet stream with two commentators who I believe are a bit bigger experts than Anu

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Anu is laughable but seems nice
All her sports Interviews with Anett

Anyway, a shame she lost. Lisicki did not play that amazingly and Kaia really enabled her to play her own way. Unforced Errors, lapses in concentration and quite poor returning really lost her a winnable match. How many times did she have little opportunities like 15-30 or have a big lead like 40-0 and lose it...

By the end her heart just wasn't there and she was missing shots she never normally would. As for not running/not reading Dropshots... Also she didn't sense when Sabine was nervous. For example at 5-3 Deuce after Sabine blew 2 Points Kaia should have made her play the point out as if she could win the game the rain may have enabled a momentum change...

Anyway, still a great week and hopefully she will eventually get that SF. If I was her, I would have imploded after the Kvitova match

One step closer to Top 10

P.S. I know this is a bit melodramatic, but Kaia actually could have won Wimbledon this year

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

too bad it came to a halt. kaia did not manage to find her game today. seems like she was low on energy or overthinking or smth like that because she had uncharacteristically many misses on winners/ put-aways, especially after the break-back by lisicki in the second.

overall i am very pleased seeing her return to the tour in an impressive manner following what could have turned out to be a career-threatening injury. i am sure that we will see many more solid slam performances by her going forward. oh, and the road to top 10 is open. keep it up, kaia!

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I'm disappointed of course, expected a closer match. Just wasn't meant to be.
However, we shouldn't be too sad. Kaia has been playing only 3 months and look at the results.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I hoped it would be more competitive.

But great tournament, nice boost in the ranks and nice money earned

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I think she may be injured as she grabbed at her ankle a few times

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I don't think she is injured. At least it hasn't been mentioned anywhere. She is now resting at home for a while and probably plays Washington next. This means no Budapest or Bastad.
