Kaia won

Kaia won in the opening round after being 2:5 down in the deciding set.

Kaia’s own words: “It was a tough match today. According to the scoreboard I won the first set comfortably, but I did realize already in the beginning that she plays good here and I was not very sharp today. Being 2:5 down in the decider I thought that I still have a chance. When I had the opportunity I did try to play aggressively, when not, I tried to be patient. It was difficult to attack today as the court is quite slow and balls bounced very high. It was a bit breezy today as well and it was hard to come forward and play aggressively.”

Kaia will meet Richel Hogenkamp (NED, WTA 152) in the second round. Hogenkamp come through qualifying and won her first round match against the fifth seed Anna Schmiedlova (SVK, WTA 68) 6:3 6:1. The match will be most probably be played on Thursday.

Kaia's own words: "She served very well today and played aggressively. I had also many break point opportunities in the first set but could not convert them. I did not serve as well as I did in the first round match. When the serve does not work, then it is very difficult to play on grass with the style I have. I think that my serve was deciseve today."

Kaia won

Kaia won in 1 hour and 10 minutes and reached to the second round. This was her fourth win against Jankovic.

Kaia’s own words: “I was positively surprised that I managed to play so well during the entire match, considering that I have not had good rhythm lately. I did not have any pressure today and this is when I play my best tennis.

When I serve well, as I did today, the grass court suits my style well. You have to be aggressive from the beginning of the point and move your opponent around. I have positive memories form court number 2 as I won against Kerber at the same court last year. I also like when there is a big crowd watching my matches, it creates a great vibe of a good competition.”

Next up will be Yaroslava Shvedova (KAZ, WTA 65). Shvedova is leading their head-to-head 2:1. The last encounter was in Indian Wells this year where Shvedova won 6:3, 6:2. The match will be played on Thursday.

Kaia and Anna Tatishvili (USA) are playing doubles first round match against Belinda Bencic (SUI) and Tsvetlana Pironkova (BUL) on Wednesday. The match is scheduled at court number 4 as the third match of the day.
