Indian Wells, California USA, 25.02. – 03.03.2019 / WTA125K
Melbourne AUS, 14.01. – 27.01.2019 / GS
Kaia's 1st opponent in 2019 is World No 1 Simona Halep who she will play in the 1st round at the Australian Open in Melbourne. The top half of the draw starts the tournament on 15th of January.
After many years I wanted to play the WTA tournaments in Asia and other year-ending tournaments but I am not able to. I am disappointed about this. An injury that I picked up before the US OPEN hasn't fully healed and needs longer period for treatment. I want to be healthy for the upcoming season and I hope to play next in Australia.
