Kaia defeated Begu 64 61
1st set was intense. Begu managed to go up 4-2*, and hadn't faced any BPs on serve. They had many long rallies, one with 19 shots, another with 24 shots. Though I felt some of those rallies could have been shorter, but Begu was on the right spots most of the time (well this will happen against Wozniacki also).
At 3-4* Kaia was up 40-0*, but Begu got to deuce. It was a quite long game, but Kaia managed to break. The next 2 games didn't come very easily, but they came.
2nd set wasn't really great. Well, Begu's level dropped. First game was quite long, full of errors from both sides, with Begu making as many UEs as she did in the 1st set altogether. After winning the first game, Kaia pretty much cruised. Though the little slip when she didn't hold her serve was unnecessary. But it's not supposed to be that easy anyway. Ended with her only ace in the match
Next up Caroline Wozniacki.
But firstly, doubles tomorrow
