JJ had her chances, 4-2 up in 1st set, broke back in 2nd, 0*-30 on Kanepis last service game after Kanepi missed 5 serves in a row , but couldnt take advantage of it. Kanepi was too good on big points.
I guess Kaia is on her way to back top 20 now ?

bombshell? the pre-match www poll has now got it right 3 of 3 times this year...

i was surprised how kaia fought back from 2:4 down in the first and kept her cool until the end of the match. kaia has matured immensly and if her serve works she can play anyone on the tour. i know jj can play much better than that, but kaia did not play her absolute best today either.

truly well done and fingers Xed for tomorrow! make it count, kaia!

add beating azarenka and henin at fed cup to that short list of yours. i am sure kaia is dying to extend the list and she will have her chance tomorrow.

kaia is no goat, not yet, anyway. having been ranked as # 1 in juniors, her career has not worked out as one might have expected. but she is on her way back up again, got her first title this summer and if she can avoid injuries i can see her improving further. consistency is her greatest weakness. if she can improve in that compartment she may well knock on the door of top 10.

Hm, according to what I saw in the video given in the thread the only thing that Kaia did was keeping the ball in the court.If the whole match was like that shame on Jankovic for losing that way.
And if Kaia keeps playing like that - why should we cheer with her?Being aware of the fact she has a pretty good serve, I expected her to be more aggressive and more risky player.:confused:

She volleyed great in that last game though.

nothing said about that publicly and she is not complaining about that at all. her main sponsor dropped her after AO 2010, when she started free-falling in the rankings.

kaia's comment to estonian media after the jj match was that she thought she played better against peer, but she was happy with the win.

Why should she take risks if she sees that the opponent could make mistakes too?:shrug: But it doesn't usually work for her, she's likely to lose a long rally if both would keep the ball just in play. She's advised to be more patient, and wait for the right moment to attack.

How is her sponsor situation? They'd dropped her right before her Wimbledon run, right? I hope she's picked up some others since then.

She was rumored to sign a new sponsoring contract, but nothing has happened so far. Thus her sponsoring situation is the same.

JJ didn't play horribly, really. Kaia just played very well--the better player won, today, no argument. Congrats, KaKa.

But seriously, JJ needs major help. The BH was horrible and ineffective. The DTL was rarely there, the CC was usually out. Her serve wasn't horrible but everything she hit was just down the middle, spun too much, and without any real purpose.

She and Ana need to go see a shrink together.

Talk of the WTA president having to resign or quit just because a single player lost a match to another player? WTF:confused: It's not the job of the WTA tour to make sure it's players play well. It's up to the players and their coaches. JJ is not in form right now thus she's not winning as many matches lately. This is not earth shattering. It happens. This overreaction really makes this board unbearable to read sometimes! :fiery:
