Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Loss for words how bad this match was 5-7 4-6 loss to Pennetta.

I have not seen Kaia play this bad tennis for a long time. She looked so bored and tired on court, there was nothing there. Why do you play if you don't like the game anymore?

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

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!



But playing like this, it hadn't been nice to watch against Radwanska.

See you in Acapulco, Kaia. No excuse she shouldn't get to the QF at least

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Against Halep she was fighting so hard. But this time she looked very indifferent. It was quite weird to see her losing a game from 40-0 (making 2 DFs, maybe more I didn't notice) just after leveling the games coming from back. She probably didn't feel good there Good luck on clay though!

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Acapulco's on hard this year

And I was thinking she's maybe playing too many weeks in a row.. now it's not so heavy if she gets just a match or two.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia

Bad loss in Dubai R1 to annoying wall Pennetta. It`s incredibly frustrating to be Kaia`s fan. She has so much talent, but is mentally too weak. Kaia can`t play at a high level for the whole match. She hits DFs at the most important times in a match. No idea why her serve sucks so much, and often at the decisive moments. Kaia can serve amazingly well, but gets often too nervous. And Kaia is already 28 years old, it`s not like Kaia is young and inexperienced. Another weakness is Kaia`s lazy footwork/movement. She must improve to move better, from start to end of the match. And when Kaia is in form, she gets injured or ill. Just a drama. We can only hope Kaia stays healthy this year and works really hard. Lots of things to improve. She needs a mental coach. The potential for Top 10 is still there, but she must improve.

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!!!

Very tight win, 76(6) in 3rd set

Now she'll face McHale. They've never played before.

Good luck!

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

How did people watch this match? I've only found streams for men's matches

But anyway, reading from GM, it was a bad match from both. I'm just glad Kaia pulled through. Ironic how she'd win a shitfest in 3rd set TB, but loses while playing well (the Halep one).

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia into Acapulco QF !

6-7 6-4 7-6 What a thriller ! Sad Kaia and Julia had to meet so early. I wish this had been a SF match. Great comeback win for Kaia, Görges was leading 4-1 in 3rd set already. Then Kaia served for the match at 6-5 in 3rd set, but was broken. Very dramatic match. Interesting serve stats: 5 Aces, 10 DFs for Kaia and 9 Aces, 10 DFs for Julia. Next round should be easier for Kaia, she should beat pusher McHale without problems.

Quote:
"It was quite up and down," Kanepi said. "One side would play well and then the other and then back again. I played a few points better at the end, and that's why I won this very close and tough match.
So typical for both Kaia and Julia. Impressive winners here and there, but no consistency

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

She was/is sick, so two wins is already good.
