Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

On the side note, she has withdrawn from Bad Gastein (good decision IMO), so next tournament is Cincinnati qualis in 4 weeks.

Kanepi Wins Palermo, Makes History

July 18, 2010

PALERMO, Italy - Estonia's first Grand Slam quarterfinalist, Estonia's first Top 20 player and now Estonia's first Sony Ericsson WTA Tour champion. Kaia Kanepi continued to make history for her country in Palermo this week, capturing her first career title with a 64 63 win over Flavia Pennetta.

Kanepi, the No.5 seed at the clay court events, had beaten Pennetta twice but never on clay; and after losing the first two games of the match and facing a point for a 3-0, double break deficit, things looked headed the same way. But Kanepi snapped into it at that point, coming back to win the set, 6-4, and never falling behind again to upset the No.1 seed.

"I'm very happy to win my first career title," Kanepi said. "This is the best moment of my career. After doing well at Wimbledon, now I've confirmed I'm playing really well. Flavia was playing well but today I was more aggressive in the most important moments of the match."

In 2008, Kanepi became the first Estonian to make it to the quarters of a major, doing so at the French; that was one of the strong showings that later led her to the world's Top 20. She fell out of the Top 100 this year but has rebounded in a big way over the last few months, reaching another Grand Slam quarterfinal at Wimbledon and now taking her first title.

Kanepi had lost both of her previous finals, at Hasselt in 2006 (to Kim Clijsters) and at Tokyo in 2008 (to Caroline Wozniacki).

This was Pennetta's 20th career final and she is now 9-11 in those. The defending champion was gracious in defeat: "I want to congratulate Kaia. She played a fantastic match. Now I'm going to prepare for the hardcourt season. I hope to defend my results from last year."
Estonia must be proud of Kaia.
Kaia is simply great!

Re: Kaia Kanepi Cheering Thread!!!

An Article in an Estonian Newspaper today.

I tried to translate everything on there. My brain is a bit off right now, so might find some trasnlation errors, but I'm sure my Estonian posters will correct me where I'm off

„My life has never been better“ says Kaia Kanepi after her first ever WTA tour title win"


„I'm playing good tennis. Winning. No pressure in personal life, feel great and free. I can be who I want.“

Kanepi is happy and relaxed after a day-long trip from Palermo to home. No sign of fatigue and an off day coming up. „I can't be in peace in Tallinn. A lot going on. Apartment needs cleaning and ... on Wednesday again starting with practise, since in three weeks a long US tour will start“ admits Kanepi as she sips her black coffee. „During the weekend I'll head over to Haapsalu, there I can zone myself out completely from the rest of the world“

3 trophies and a tray/plate

Kanepi's life is a dream. Sunday evening won her first ever WTA tour title in Palermo, with which came 37,000 USD in prize money, 3 trophies and a tray. „I didn't understand italian, so don't know why so many trophies were given“ smiles Kanepi. But since those were given, it means everything has to be carried home. The biggest tropy luckly can be split, otherwise wouldn't have fitted in the bag.

If Kanepi - the winner is beaming, then what does Kanepi - the loser look like?„Well ofcourse I'm not beaming then. I talk very little, think alot. No, I don't break things. In General. It has to be a really bad defeat, which comes from a very bad play. I don't curse or insult others, if, then only myself.“

It seems, that Kanepi is not overjoyeus. Atleast she doesn't drop on the court after a great win. Or?„Winning a Grand Slam Title might be something special“ not being convinced, that she can contain her emotions in every situation. „I don't plan to throw myself on the court, If I drop, I drop“

Free of pressure and gets to be who she is

To herself Kanepi belives she's playing the best tennis of her life. „I won a tournament. Passed the qualification round twice at the Grand Slams for the first time. Reaching Wimbledon quarterfinal and on grass. Why? "I'm more stabile, make less mistakes and I don't take so many risks. I'm not afraid of long rallies to win a point. Serve is not as powerful as before, but is more accurate."

And it seems her form is good also – Kanepi brings balls, which she wouldn't even dream of running down, back in to play now.

"That's right! My form is also the best I've had in my life! My physio trainer has done an amazing job."

Mental side?

„Excellent! Last year I kept losing, gathered pressure like a sponge. Now I'm strain free. Still no reason for peace however. I'm still not in the TOP10 of the world. Still work to be done. Need to be even better and those wins don't come easily, eventhough the situation looks good right now. Opponents don't give up. In each match both have their opportunities, one uses them, other doesn't.“

A few months of collaboration with a amatuer tennis player Silver Karjus has brought the realization- she has a trainer, so no need to search for a new one. „I am very satisfied with Silver and can not ask for more. He helps me menthally and improves my game. He is capable to handle everything.“

„I have no personal life, have only tennis.“

Kanepi is convinced, that if a limit is being reached, both the trainer and the player understand this and will consider new improvements to be made.

Game is set, spirit is high, how about private life?

„I don't have any private life, only tennis“ laughs Kanepi and adds that she's not thinking of getting married. „I am not currently looking for someone special. I'm focused on my carreer.“
