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.
