6:1 | 6:7 | 6:3

Kaia won

Kaia won very tough match and reached to the fourth round. The match statistics is here

Kaia's own words: "Very tough match was today, at first mentally and then physically. It is difficult when in certain moments the match does not come to my way and then you will end up losing the set as well. At one point in the second set I broke the strings in my racket and took a new one. Maybe I was a little tense at that time, was afraid to hit and then lost the touch. Luckily I tried to keep playing aggressively to get the feeling back and found it.

It was also difficult to start the third set but luckily I got going well. In the end it was again difficult to close out the match. It took a lot of mental power to win today.

Wozniacki played as I predicted, her backhand is much more dangerous than her forehand. Her serve is a bit improved since we last played. I was ready for her high balls and hit myself some high balls to her forehand side.

By drawing the heart to the court i showed how much I love to play in Paris :)"

Kaia's opponent in the fourth round is Arantxa Rus (NED, 88). The match will be most probably on Monday.

Kaia and Shuai Zhang will have their third round doubles match against Jarmila Gajdosova - Anastasia Rodionova tomorrow. Their match is at court number 3 as the third match of the day. Matches start at 11 local time/ 12 Estonian time.
