Disappointing Oh well. Better luck in doubles.

How stupid can she be, when it comes to russian players Kaia's form just goes out the window. Her H2H with most of them is 0-2/3
It's because if she wins, then the mafia will get her.

It looks like Pavlyuchenkova doesn't belong there because she's pretty much the only Russian Kaia is able to beat.

Anyway, how was doubles?

I decided only to watch the first set as Kanepi/Georges dominated. Serving=Amazing. Outhit their opponents completely, volleys, passing shots, serve, ground strokes. Maybe some unforced errors came in the second or third but the Americans werent given many opportunities. Except maybe the end where they had a few break points. Serving much better for Kaia than in singles. Didnt combine awfully well (a few clashing rackets) but served unbelievebly nearly the whole first set. This could be a very good combination.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia said that it just wasnt her day. Didnt find a right feeling or right rhythm and her serve was the biggest weakness against Makarova. She told she played much better in doubles, they smiled a lot and it was fun (good for Kaia that she managed to enjoy that match only a few hours after that loss in singles).
Doubles R2 is last match on court 18.

Here's the interview: http://sport.err.ee/tennis/81266d2a-...a-f9a6b46938f6

She sounds really disappointed. Even thinks that the preparation for the season was maybe one of the worst just Brisbane's title is the result of 1.5 year's work.



Now Estonia will be lucky to survive the zone

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

On one hand it is a good thing that she is focusing on her personal results more but on the other hand.... We're screwed as a team

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

If Estonia could have gotten greece or Bosnia there is a chance they could survive as Anett could win singles and then maybe her and margit in doubles but it isnt looking very good now!

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Zone I or zone II, is it that important? And last time Estonia was relegated to zone II, they bounced back with 9 straight wins and it did take Belgium strongest line-up to beat them again.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I really dont see Estonia getting to world group 2 before kaia retiring. I mean, she defnately wont play zonal group 2 fed cup and soon anett might even stop playing. they really need to try and stay in zone group 1.
