6:3 | 6:4

Kaia won

Kaia’s own words: "The matches were a bit delayed today due to the rain. I started my match very well, it took some time for Vania to get into the game. In the middle of the first set the match become very competitive. Also some time in the middle of second set there was suddenly quite strong wind, playing against the wind was more difficult. After we changed the ends and i played downwind, it was easier for me and I won the first set.

The second set was also very competitive, i played aggressive and made some mistakes on deciding points. When the conditions were good and there was no wind, the match was quite good – we had many long rallies and I was attacking.

I do not know much about my tomorrows opponent, I know that she hits quite flat but is very skilful. I will play my game and we’ll see how it turns out."

Kaia will meet Petra Cetkovska (CZE, WTA 28) in the quarterfinal match tomorrow at 11:00 (local time)/ 13:00 (Estonian time) at court number 1.
