as of this morning Kaia was practicing at Rocca in Tallinn. she looked to be in good physical shape and seemed quite focussed. but I sure was surprised to see Karjus call out the drills... has she rehired Karjus??

how do you mean? I saw Kaia prepare for FO at Herne, there was no Karjus anywhere in sight. This must be a recent thing. Karjus was on the court, leading the session, not looking at the action from the distance. I am surprised given what a mess was left behind when these two parted ways in 2012.

I don't know if she's rehiring Karjus or maybe they are simply testing. She needs a change, that's for sure. At least she made visible progress while Karjus was coaching her. Worth a try I guess.

At least she has changed her service motion back to what it used to be (lifting the tip of her front foot while initiating the service motion, a la Sampras or Maria)... Hope we will see the return of the 2012 Brisbane GOAT soon.

After the Panova match she played like a World Number 1

She did withdraw just in time to avoid making MD and getting fined for late withdrawal.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia could have played 100K + H Bogota on Clay and then trained for a week in US on Hard Court. Would have at least guarenteed some points even if she struggles on the HCs...

Kaia is just a mystery, I guess we'll just have to put up with whatever decisions she makes.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

From Facebook:

Quote:
Kaia about her upcoming tournaments - "I want to compete”.

How are you before tournaments in the United States and which tournaments you plan to play?
Kaia: I will start in the qualifying in New Haven and then of course the last slam of the year US OPEN. Unfortunately, I was ill after Bastad and I started to practice easily just last week. I have not practiced much yet but I would like to compete already .

What was the confidence you got from successful ITF tournaments and WTA tournament played in July?
Kaia: I think this confidence needs to be searched again at the beginning of every tournament match.

What is your schedule for Asian swing and do you like to play there?
Kaia: I plan to play Seoul in South Korea, Wuhan and Beijing in China. In principle I like being in Asia only thing that getting used to time difference is going laboriously and therefore it is not favourite place to travel.
