Hasselt BEL, 24.10. – 30.10.2005 / Tier III
In the first round of 170K WTA Tour tournament in Hasselt, Belgium Kaia lost to 3rd seed Francesca Schiavone from Italy, ranked no. 15 in the world, in two sets 3-6 4-6. Schiavone is one of the most in-form players on the Tour at the moment. She has won 20 of her last 27 matches, a record highlighted by her stunning run to the final two weeks ago at Moscow, where she ousted Amelie Mauresmo, Svetlana Kuznetsova and Elena Dementieva en route to her first Tier I final before succumbing to Mary Pierce.
