Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

Kaia

At least Kaia won her 1st set vs Sharapova. And no shame losing to 2nd best WTA player

I love these matches Kaia - Sharapova. 2 very talented, amazing ballstrikers

Borough and parish.

Google translate is correct Producing hemp fiber was a common thing in old Estonia.

And Kaia's grandfather was Konopinski, before he and his brother changed their names to Kanepi in 1935, when there was a huge campaign to "Estonize" names.

Is he Polish
She doesn't look it I understand why they would lose the Russian names but I would think they wouldn't "Estonianise" a Polish name Is Kanepi also an Estonian name normally? Also how do you know these things Meelis

EDIT: So Kaia is actually Russian From Narva

I bet Kaia barely speaks Russian.

The history of family names here is complex, due to rule by different countries. Lots of Russian, Swedish, German and original Estonian as well as Estonianised names. There was also a period when Estonian names were Russified.

What is a Russified Estonian name Yeah I wouldn't expect her family to still be Russian oriented. It worries me when Estonians like Jana Kuzovkova post everything on Facebook and Instagram in Russian and even reply to Estonian posts in Russian. BTW, what is an original Estonian name. I can identify the Swedish, Russian and German ones quite easily but not so much the others. Like Ani and Rüütel seem Estonian but is Kontaveit German? She looks kinda German in particular her Dad...

And from her junior days
Quote:
"Kellega sa, Kaia, noorteturniiridel kõige enam suhtled?"

"Venelannadega, inglise keeles. Venelased alati imestavad, et ma vene keelt ei räägi."

"Kõik arvavad, et küll ta oskab, aga ei taha," muigas Tiit Kivistik. "Mulle käis üks treener kaebamas: näe, Kaia ei taha vene keelt rääkida, on need eestlased ikka küll! Nad ei tule selle pealegi, et meie noored ei pruugi vene keelt enam osata."
