Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

No doubt, Estonian Tennis Federations voted for Kaia and Anett But I suspect weightlifting, taekwondo, underwater sports etc. federations did not.

Oh so its all of the federations Well that makes sense to me because most sports don't know hoe much more competitive and popular tennis is to everything else

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Hey, a new year and new hopes for Kaia!

Her section in Brisbane:

(3)Sharapova v Garcia
Hantuchova v Q
Kanepi v Q
Q v (8)Suarez Navarro

Hope she reaches the QFs here .
Would be great to see what she can do against MS on hard. Still I prefer Hantuchova

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

This is not a bad draw. Hopefully she can have another good run in Brisbane

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Yeah unless she is not playing her best a QF is very possible Hopefully Sharapova will bail like she normally does but if she doesn't I really hope Kaia will actually play decently this time

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Happy that Hsieh gets Cibulkova instead of her Let's hope for a more one-sided match this time, hopefully on a stream

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia starts the year against Panova again Hopefully it is a good sign.

They play first match on Show Court 2, starting at 3am in Estonian time. Any chance for a live stream?

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

No the livestreams are Show Court 1 and Centre They should have it on 2 as well though. The centre is wonderful and the court definitely has the capability for it

exactly

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 starts the new season with a win over Panova 63 67(10) 62. I read she did a bit of choking

Next against CSN.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

She has a shot against CSN IMO if she can improve like she did last time she was in Brisbane. The 1st Round Result is almost exactly the same: Kaia struggled with the heat and managed to pull through. Let's hope she manages to destroy Suarez Navarro the way she did Pavlyuchenkova
