Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia’s six month long injury break will end in Poland next week as she plans to participate in the Katowice Open International level WTA tournament. Most probably the similar level tournaments in Morocco and Portugal will follow later in April.

Kaia’s own words: “I’m looking forward for competing again, I missed it a lot. There is always excitement while competing.

I do not set any goals. In practice everything is very well, but you cannot compare practice and competition – the tension is totally different. During competition it is clear in which form I am physically and mentally.

I know it will be very difficult. The break was very long and I cannot be sure if I will be able to give 100% or if I will subconsciously hold myself back.

There will be clay tournaments coming. Maybe it is good to start on clay as compared to hard courts the clay surface is a bit friendlier for legs. I like clay as I grew up playing at clay courts.

I will check after each match, how my legs are recovering. The most important thing for me is to play without any pain. I’m just very happy when I can compete again.”
