Re: The ultimate choker - Kaia Kanepi.

She was choking so hard at times last night I feared she would have ended up like this bitch....

I agree. I had to got out after the second set tie break and thought when I return I would read that she had lost. At least, somehow, she managed to get herself back together and close out the match.

This is the ultimate choker:



She did it at RG too, see how it feels to save 9 MP against the ultimate choker:

Re: The ultimate choker - Kaia Kanepi.

Against Kvitova, she had 7 match points over 2 sets

But she is improving nicely

If she could get hold of her head, she can be top 10, even top 5

Re: The ultimate choker - Kaia Kanepi.

If you look her game she's more focused and plays more with brain than most of the others and then on those choke times, she's totally brainless. So only question is why she chokes. Only reason is when she gets in to 6-1, 5-1 situation, she is:

"Oh my god, I can't win so easily against so tough opponents, she is top5 players etc." and she starts to choke at that moment. With every win against players like that, this feeling starts to vanish.

Well, but maybe it really is. Because she said she can't remember the end of the 2nd set.
It's possible to be so nervous that in the end you won't even know what you're doing, why you're doing, and nothing makes sense.

Re: The ultimate choker - Kaia Kanepi.

Her choking is only there with top10 players. She still has not played with top10 players so much. More and more games she plays with them, less she chokes. She just needs to play with them more often and she stops choking when she's comfortable playing with them and have wins against them.
1 year ago she was 0-2 against Wozniaki. Then she got win against her and yesterday she wasn't afraid of her when coming to play. Now she's 2-1 in last 3 meetings. Yes, she still choked, but next time she won't do even that anymore.

Re: The ultimate choker - Kaia Kanepi.

Didn't see the match today but my mind is drawn immediately to the 2010 Wimbledon quarterfinal when she should have beaten Kvitova in straight sets, then had a substantial lead in the 3rd set and served for the match and still lost.

If Kanepi can control her nerves, she could actually be a top player.

No, the ultimate choker is Serena Williams being one set up and 5/1 up TB in 1st round GS. By her standards of course, not Novotna's.
