Kanepi was 2-5 behind in second set but quickly came back and won 5 games in a row.

Happy for her win, though it took longer than expected.
Next round opponent is either Michelle Larcher de Brito or Olga Govortsova, if weather permits :unsure:

Kaia is in great form, but Jarka should have at least taken the second set. ;)

yes, she is on her way back up, no doubt about that now. given she does not have a coach, at least not anyone experienced, she's doing a damn good job. parting ways with her agent and main sponsor earlier in the year seems to have been the right call!

happy b-day, kaia, and fingers x-ed for R3!

Kanepi clearly is out of bad slump and on her way to where she really should be : back into top 50 . Win over Henin was so important ,gave her so much confidence, starting from it Kaia won 19 matches and lost only 1 ( to Jankovic in 3 sets). I think 4 wins in a row on grass is also her personal best or close to it. Job well done !

Shes too good to be so low in the rankings, glad coming back is a success for her so far.

Tale of two Jarkas. First three games Kanepi won, Jarka playing terribly, she complained about the state of the baseline and they stopped for 10/15 minutes. On the restart Jarka was playing better but the wheels fell off. Kaia was just being very solid, not really going for much (but the odd very nice winner), content to hang in there and wait for the mistake.

2nd set Jarka came out playing *lights out*. Some wonderful winners, aggressive play, excellent stuff. Of course though as soon as she'd got on the brink of winning the set the game fell apart, the errors crept back in and Kaia took the match. Jarka probably deserved that 2nd for having played so well but in all honesty anything other than a Kanepi win based on those 2 performances would have been a robbery.
