Kaia lost

Kaia about the match: It was good that I started play better in the 2nd set and match got tighter. I hope it helps me to progress and I'll play better next tournaments. It is a pity that I couldn't start well and felt insecure in the beginning of the match - it was the first match of the tournament and I wasn't sure whether my physical condition is good after illness. I feel sad that I cannot play more matches at my favorite tournament.

Kaia lost

Kaia lost 1:6 2:6.

Kaia’s own words: „She played very aggressively and was successful. I did not have much to do there today. The pace was very fast and I could not build anything. I did have more opportunities in the second set but she played very well at these points. She hit two aces in a row several times. Maybe I did not choose the right tactics in the beginning, I could have started with bigger shots as well. Maybe it would have given me better rhythm on that court with her today. It was difficult to bring in changes as she got initiative right from the start and was on a roll.“

I was a bit anxious in the beginning of this match but after a few games I started to feel very well and from there on I felt I played very well. I can't wait for my next match."
