Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia won 46 63 62

A good win, very hard fought match. Neither played greatly, but toughed it out

Next up Minella. They're the same age but never played each other. Should be easier on paper, but who knows..

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Beat Anabel 46 63 62 This was too much for me to handle, I could not watch it after she got broken in the 2nd set
Minella next, this will be their first meeting

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Good for Kaia! She had a 2-hour match today, but Minella had even a longer match. Interesting to see how it goes, I think Kaia will win

And what's with the news about Kaia being currently helped by Anett's former coach Märten Tamla?

I read from Õhtuleht that Tamla has a contract till the end of June, but he's not her coach. Interesting.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

It seems the Estonian coaches are like a pool where they are selected
Seriously though, I think this is a good move
Thbere were doubts about Marten when he started with Anett and he has done a good job IMO so I am happy for him and Kaia
Wasn't she being coached by Alo?
And will she definitely stop with Marten at the end of June or will she maybe continue on?
It must be better for him to be able to coach someone who is higher up and he probably gets payed more regularly
How involved is Kaia's father BTW?

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

I was really hopeless when she got broken in the second set. But then she leveled her game up. I think she played really well in the third.Confidence is really creating big contrast in her game.

Her own words :

"I started well, I was leading 4:1 in the first set. Then she changed her game a bit and started to hit higher balls. I was a little confused for a moment. I tried to attack them but made many mistakes. My confidence disappeared.

The second set started very competitively. At one point in the second set, I do not know at the moment why it happened but I got the initiative. I felt better, I was more patient, hit some higher balls back and then she had to figure out what to do with them. In the deciding set I felt quite confident. I did not take many risks, I hit the ball back and attacked when I got the opportunity.

Märten Tamla will help me as tennis coach during this and couple of next tournaments. We'll see how the cooperation works out. He has been helping me at practice before, now we try, how it works out during tournaments. Märten come to court today as well and gave some good advice."

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Lost to Minella
She now has to start defending all those big points, if she keeps up like that, she may drop out of top 150

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Disappointing loss

She can at least use her protected ranking. Maybe it's wise to play some ITFs if things doesn't start going better
Winning a round at RG will already be good (in terms of rankingpoints).

EDIT: She seems to be disappointed herself
Quote:
My game fell apart today. In the first set I played quite well. In the second set I tired to vary the rythm more but my shots were too short. She attacked them and got initiative. I lost my rhythm, made mistakes and lost my confidence. Everything was vary higgledy-piggledy today. Tomorrow I will travel to Estoril where new tournament will start on Monday

I read some of the comments on her FB, can't believing those people losing bets

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia's quarter in Oeiras:

Cirstea vs Medina Garrigues
Kanepi vs Mladenovic
Robson vs Morita
U.Radwanska vs Cibulkova

Hope they put her match in a televised court, since she's the defending champion Meanwhile.. a really tough ask for her to defend the title.But we'll see

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Hard to comment anything after the Marrakesh tournament where she could have had such an easy road to the final. When she is ON, she can easily go far here, but she is so unpredictable atm.

This is the first time Kaia is playing a WTA tournament where she is the defending champion.

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

It also could be said about Mladenovic that she's unpredictable.

If Kaia could play similar level she played in Katowice, that'd be better. In Marrakech neither of her matches were particularly great I think.
