Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Oh noooo

She is now #69 at the moment, if Vekic beats Zvonareva she will be 70th, other need at least 2 wins to surpass Kaia. I was afraid things could be lot worse. Now she has USO R3, Beijing R2, ITF 75K R2 and Moscow R1, this is 257 points to defend til the end of the year.
This year she is finally planning to play tournaments between Wimbledon-USO, last time she did it was in 2010 She hasn't played a tournament in July for 4 years!

Too bad Hope she manages to find some form again somehow. For now she has entered Contrexeville 100k next week.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

About this match, what annoyed me was Shvedova often delaying before serving, bouncing the ball, catching it and what else, esp on the 2nd serve. But maybe that's just me

I hope she'll play next week. Considering the win in r1 and the way she somehow won that 2nd set, maybe the things are looking better..

That pisses me off with Sharapova too

Hopefully she can go an ITF run like she did a few years ago to get that confidence back She can easily get back into Top 50 with good results at the 2 100Ks

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia

Seems like the win against Jankovic in R1 was just a fluke. Kaia is still completely out of form. And let`s be honest Jankovic played very bad tennis, so it was not that difficult to beat her. Also Kaia was the underdog and had no pressure. What were Kaia`s words after the match ?

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

About loss to Shvedova
Kaia's own words: "She served very well today and played aggressively. I had also many break point opportunities in the first set but could not convert them. I did not serve as well as I did in the first round match. When the serve does not work, then it is very difficult to play on grass with the style I have. I think that my serve was deciseve today."

Nice words Hopefully going back on Clay it will be less of an issue

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia can win some matches here. Just I hope she does't get Minella as the qualifier.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kovinic could be very tough, as could Dulgheru... This having been said, Kaia's Wimbledon was still solid IMO and she has done well on the ITF in the past so getting through this section is probable IMO

GL Kaia! She really needs to do well here. Hopefully this #1 seeding doesn't add too much pressure for her.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Good that her first match is against someone like Sanesi. Kaia should not have problems even if she plays bad.
