Brussels Open

Brussels BEL, 21.05. – 26.05.2012 / Premier $637,000 clay


6:3 | 6:2

Kaia won

Kaia’s own words: „I played well today. In general my ground strokes were good. I was aggressive, tried to change pace and I played as versatile as I can.

Everything is ok with my serve, I do not want to comment it anymore. Sometimes I find my rhythm, sometimes not – that’s how it is. As long as anyone does not attach my second serve, as it was today, I can try to hit the first serve stronger. That is why sometimes it goes in and sometimes it does not. If i need to, i can hit the first serve as i do my second serve. Today I felt good with my second serve and it allowed me to risk more with my first serve.

My tomorrows opponent hits flat and hard. I have to be aggressive and play well, we will then see how it goes. The weather here is nice and warm, a bit damp. The court has quite many strange bounces. Kristjan is also here and cheers for me :)“

In the second round Kaia will meet with Bojana Jovanovski (SRB, WTA 111). Kaia and Bojana have played once before and last time in Sydney in 2011 Bojana won 6:4, 6:4
