Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia’s own words: “First round matches are usually quite nervous but this time I wasn’t anxious in the beginning of the match. I felt physically well since the beginning. It was very hot today and maybe that is why my energy level dropped briefly in the second set. I started to make simple errors and become impatient. In the deciding set I played well and it seemed that my opponent was more tired.”

never in doubt in the third it seemed.

Stosur is a former champ here, but Kaia is no slouch on hard court and as somebody already said, she's got nothing to lose. I have not followed Stosur much this year, superficially scanning her record allows ne to conclude that she has got nothing stellar to report. So it could go either way. GL Kaia!

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Happy Kaia beat Parmentier and is into US Open R2 !

Should have been a win in straight sets. But a win is a win

R2 vs Stosur. Head To Head 1-1. Nothing to lose. Kick her ass

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

Kaia lost the first set against Stosur 3:6.

But won the second set 6:3. She led 5:0 before dropping some games.

Kaia won 7:6(8) in the third. What an epic match

She served for the match but choked to early and couldn't reel it back in so now has to serve to stay in it at 5-6

To 5-5 but then 5-6 but then. Great point to save MP

Got a net cord after Stosurs shot barely went in but didn't move towards the net so Stosur drop shotted

Saves another MP and now she has one

Kaia hits a great shot on the baseline but hits a drop shot too loopy

Another MP

She wins!!!!!!!

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I was not able to see the match live, but watching live score was pure torture. In the end I was just praying that Kaia would hold her serve or take her chances. Kaia was able to protect her points from last year. Next CSN.

I feel you

I'm sooooo happy for this. More happy than for the Jankovic win in Wimbledon. There she played a great match, and was clearly better that day. But this match against Stosur.. A bad first set but managed it still relatively close. Then the 2nd set Stosur going walkabouts, if it wasn't 5-0 to start, Stosur could have easily taken this one too. And then the nervous TB.. 1-4 down. Facing 2 MPs. But taking still winning this

It was really nice to see Kaia fight until the end despite not being able to serve it out. Never mind this ridiculous drop shot in the breaker which even my grandmother could have reached. Credit to Kaia for having the balls to try a drop shot for the first time in the match at such critical juncture.

Very impressed, Stosur played well, but Kaia showed great courage and prolific shotmaking skills. After set 1 I was convinced it would be Stosur in two.

Did I see it correctly that Kaia no longer has Tallink logo on her shirt? Has she parted ways with Pant? If so, good decision!

GL against CSN! A well-known opponent who does not match up to Kaia very well, especially on HC.

After a match like that it's difficult to fall asleep...
