Welcome to Amelia Island, the first stop on the clay court swing in the run-up to Roland Garros, Alicia Molik dominated on plexicushion, but can she keep it up on a new surface or will someone else emerge and dominate? Whatever happens, I wish you all the best of luck ;)

Clever Kaia continues Amelia Island journey!
http://www.postimees.ee/foto/4/4/60744454aece39ef74_2.jpg

Estonian's newcomer Kaia Kanepi,who just debuted in Melbourne, plays her second week on the ATC tour with another win over Lourdes Dominguez-Lino.After dropping the first set in tie-break, Kanepi bounced back to win the next sets 6-2 6-3.Her serve was the key, as she scores 17 aces to 5 double faults. She was patient and changed pace and direction once she was given the chance.After the match Kaia told us a bit about her hobbies:
"Well I spent a lot of my free time playing chess.I like it a lot and you need strategy, which you can transfer a bit to the court at times, as you have to wait for the right moments to go for your shots.I'm very happy to go on here in Amelia Island."
