Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

ETV2 will show Kaia's match today
First time I'll be watching WImbledon on TV, and I've been a tennis fan for 5 years

Whatever you do now,
the world still turns.

How did they get the rights for QF match? It was said they will be trying to get right for Semis if she wins today.

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

They pulled some strings They are even suppose to show the semis and final IF Kaia makes it that far

Actually 2 years ago Kruuda's sport channel also showed Kaia vs Serena 1st round at Wimbledon.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

So many wasted opportunities But it's still a great tournament for her, slam QF as a qualifier

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia has really won me over this week since I saw her in the QR1. That was so sad today, the way she just unraveled. I hope it doesn't break her spirit.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I can't believe she wasted this chance to win. She was leading 4-0 in the third What a waste!

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

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I was hoping the double break would be enough, oh well. The sooner it will be forgotten, the better.

EDIT: I hope she won't start losing now because of it.


I wonder if she'll really play qualifying in Bastad in a few days now.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Heartbreaking loss.

Oh Kaia.

What a choke! Leading 4-0 and 5-2 in 3rd set!
I`m sure she was mentally and physically tired after all these matches.
She achieved a lot at Wimbledon.

To be honest this is one of the biggest collapses I have ever seen.
Almost every shot into net or out. She seemed so nervous.
It was painful to watch.

Kaia has to forget this loss quickly and only remember reaching Wimbledon QF.
Looking at the positive things.

Kaia is going in the right direction again.

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

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia . So close. Even though she tightened, it was a great 1 and a half weeks for her. No more slump. I think that was a very exciting match and both girls were hitting very hard. But the luck didn't go her way in the end.

The loss hasn't hit Kanepi yet. But she thought losing the 5-2 lead in the TB hurt more than losing the 4-0 lead in the 3rd set. Kaia thought closing out the match was more of a mental than a physical thing, "If you are just one point away from winning the match, and you've got so many chances to do so, you can't feel tired. I know life goes on. I want to play tennis again, the next tournament is probably in Bastad."

Kanepi keen to focus on positives after run ends

Every tennis player will tell you professional matches are won and lost by the smallest of margins. Just ask Kaia Kanepi. Five times the Estonian qualifier was a point away from booking a career-defining semi-final date with defending champion Serena Williams only to suffer the pain of a defeat that seemed impossible for most of her quarter-final contest with Czech Petra Kvitova.

She held three match points in the second set tie-break (and surrendered one with a nervy double fault), led 4-0 with a double break and 5-2 late in the decider and had another couple of match points at 6-5. Moments later the world No.80's tournament was over. Just like that. She was out 4-6, 7-6 (10-8), 8-6.

After the defeat comes the interrogation. A group of journalists gathered in the All England Club's main interview room eager to dissect her mental state before she even had the chance to process the match with her coach, fellow Estonian Silver Karjus.

"I don't know what to say," a stunned Kanepi offered when asked whether Kvitova had dealt with the occasion better. "I think I could have handled it better to win, [given] the opportunities I had, so I think it's also a mental [issue].

"During the match points I just tried to play the point, but nothing special. I didn't have thoughts [of playing in the semi-finals]. I just tried to play each point, each game."

Was it a case of her opponent winning those points, or Kanepi losing them, a writer enquired. She thought about it and responded: "Fifty-fifty. I had a few second serves. She hit them well on the line. Then I had my serve, double fault. I had my few serve opportunities. So it was 50-50."

After missing three match points in the tie-break, Kanepi did well to regroup and take control of the third. But after building up a four-game cushion, she could not finish the left-hander off. "She played a little bit better at this stage," Kanepi said. "I think when she broke she got some more confidence and she just kept in there. Kept fighting. I made a few errors. That's the way it goes."

It must be mighty hard to find any positives to take from Tuesday's events, but Kanepi hopes that soon she will be able to enjoy reflecting on her run to the last eight, which included seven straight-sets victories after initially lining up in the first round of the qualifying tournament down the road in Roehampton.

"Overall, it's very positive for me to have so many matches on grass, good matches. Obviously right now I feel disappointed, but I think it's going away in a few hours."
