Kaia :inlove: :yeah: Yet another R3 at a slam. :worship: Came through an intense battle here. The score of Set 2 is misleading as Kaia faced bp in every of her service games. Next up is Veronika Kudermetova. Hopefully Kaia can recover for that match. :)

Shuai :sad: :hug: She missed a sitter on MP and cried after the loss. Hopefully she can bounce back in Doubles. :)

Fiyah Kanepi! :worship: Both the first and third set were such a tussle though. I'm glad she got a good test early on but with her body i'd almost rather she just cruise. :lol: She will have to serve more consistently going forward. Some great Estonian supporters for her on this small court btw. :)

Great fight from Rose and I felt really bad for her after the loss, especially after the way she competed to even it up in set 3. It sucks when two players you like have to face each other so early but I guess the positive flip side is that one of them is guaranteed to make the R3.

Hopefully she and Sam can have a good run even though they're in the tougher half of the draw. Maybe this year she will finally win a match at Wimbledon too.

Shuai fought so well to get back in it in the 3rd. She should be very proud of her effort.

Amazing that Kaia got the win somehow. Her energy levels looked super low in the end. Her older age and injury proneness do not like many of these kind of tough matches. I hope she manages to recover.

Kaia keeping her rank afloat in top100 by barely playing any tournaments (only her 6th this year) but showing up with a couple of wins in Slam MDs.

And she has a "kind" opponent to go even further, no disrespect to Kudermetova.

Kaia is like a mini Serena playing enough to keep her rank high and get those cash when she needed than take a holiday for her body.

Kaia into R3 of French Open ! :banana:

A strong upset win in R1 over Julia Görges :worship:

And today a sweet win over Zhang :toothy:
Kaia almost choked the match away, was already leading 4-1 in set 3 ...

She only rarely plays tournaments anymore - due to injury. And still she has such success without much match play (to reach R3 of a Grand Slam, maybe even more). This shows her quality. Kaia has so much potential ! If only she could stay healthy ...

Kudermetova next. A perfect draw. Good opportunity to reach R4 ! :)

Kaia:worship: So glad she fought till the end, I got worried in the 3rd after 4-1* lead going to 4*-4 BPs.

Every win is a joy:D (and it also helps her to stay in top 100, not bad:lol:)
