Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

^^That's a nice interview

And she finally says Silver is her coach (though I don't blame her not wanting to say anything about it to our sports journalists).

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I read that article today and loved it. Glad to see someone appreciate her game and her success at Wimby. Estonian newspapers don't even bother to have an interview for some reason.

Keep going Kaia, Kookie is nothing compared to you. Take her down

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

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

’htuleht (paper version) actually had a minor interview with her after she beat Gallovits (saying she played badly that day, but was better than Gallovits playing the important points), but of course they couldn't resist asking if Karjus is her coach. Kaia seemed to get annoyed by that and said 'It doesn't matter how you want to call him.'

Good win, Kaia!

Impressive.
Kaia was too powerful for Dulgheru.

Best Wimbledon ever for Kaia.
Hope she reaches QF now!

Oh, and thanx for the article.

And again great reading from Kaia!

Kanepi on a roll as fairytale continues


Estonian qualifier Kaia Kanepi's fairytale run continued at Wimbledon on Monday when she recorded her fourth successive straight-sets victory to move into the singles quarter-finals for the first time in her career.

The 25-year-old world No.80, who beat sixth seed Samantha Stosur in the first round, was always in control during a one-sided first set against Czech Klara Zakopalova, before hitting back from 3-0 down in the second to come through 6-2, 6-4 in an hour and 12 minutes.

After three straight-sets victories at the qualifying tournament in Roehampton prior to the Championships, Monday's win makes it seven in a row for Kanepi without the powerful right-hander even dropping a set. She has now won 26 of her last 28 matches on tour.

Next up is Petra Kvitova, another unseeded Czech, and although Tuesday's opponent hammered third seed Caroline Wozniacki in the last 16, Kanepi will be confident of going even deeper into the draw.

Kanepi used her powerful 5ft 11in frame to good effect early on Court 5, going on the attack whenever she had the opportunity to open up a 5-0 lead.
Although Zakopalova, who beat Italian Flavia Pennetta in the third round, staged a brief comeback to serve at 2-5, a brutal forehand return from the Estonian at 30-all brought up set point at which stage Zakopalova produced her 14th unforced error of the match.

Making her debut in the fourth round of a major, world No.66 Zakopalova dug in at the start of the second and quickly broke twice to move ahead 3-0. Kanepi wasn't in the mood for a three-set tussle, however, and slowly but surely clawed her way back.

She quickly pocketed two breaks of serve of her own and fought her way through a marathon seventh game on her own serve to move 4-3 ahead. A couple of games later Zakopalova came out serving to stay in the match and the pressure proved too much.

At match point down the Czech 28-year-old's 31st unforced error flew off her racket and Kanepi's dream run continued, into her second ever Grand Slam quarter-final after a similar run at the 2008 French Open.

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

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

2nd Grand Slam QF! She really must have adapted to grass by now. Kvitova was scary lately, that will be a tough one for her!

Rest in Peace Bally!

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Wow, Kaia into Wimbledon QF!

As a Qualifier!

I guess Kaia is first Estonian girl reaching Wimbledon QF?

Very happy for Kaia.

Kvitova beat Azarenka and Wozniacki in straight sets.
So it will be a tough match.

Now reach Wimbledon SF, Kaia!!!

No worries. I actually expected Sam to lose that match anyway but don't tell any of the other Smash 'em Sam family that I said that
