Cause its on grass, if she gets an easy draw of no hitters (e.g. wozniacki, jankovic, radwanska) she could even make the quarters or semi's. It would send the right message to Estonian youngsters if a tennis player won a medal at the olympics. And its on grass!
She just needs to get top 20 by then and I think she has a good shot at the title.
Kaia is very comfortable on grass, she said it herself after last years Wimbledon. She had A LOT of matches on grass and she got good results.
She was extreamly pleased and said that grass could become a good favorite for her. This year it got screwed up with ongoing injury and she couldn't play at her best.
Kaia winning an Olympic medal would be awsome and our beloved haters back in Estonia would finally have to shut the hell up. Reading comments about Kaia all the time just pisses me off. People are so vile while commenting her performance and all.
she's a little crazy.
Still, she could act as a mentor for anett, and who knows. You've gotta start low in doubles. Kaia has to grow with anett. Therefore, by next year olympics, they may still be playing challengers. Hopefully the olympic committee think it will be a good idea to put a 16 year old in the olympics
Anett said in one of her interviews that she is a mix of Kaia and Maret
She looks up to both of them. She just needs to get her nerves under control. She said it herself that she might sometimes lose her focus.
As for their Doubles. Kaia hasn't had much success in it and she needs to find a solid partner with who their styles mix perfectly. Anett should be good for her, because she's also very aggressive. Not sure of her netplay though. Haven't seen her play tbh.
