Paris FRA, 27.05. – 10.06.2012 / GS clay
Kaia won and will meet Maria Sharapova (RUS, WTA2) in the quarterfinal match on Wednesday.
Kaia's own words: "I think I played quite well in the first set. In the second set I did not play that good - I made many mistakes, did not play that aggressively and the opponent played better than in the first set. Rus was attacking well from the forehand side and moved forward to attack every time my shots were short. The game looked much different with her than with Wozniacki.
I do not know what happened in the third set but everything I tried worked out perfectly. I played bravely, did not get nervous, i think i was in a good playing zone.
The weather today was very cold, it was even uncomfortably cold to play.
I have never played with Sharapova and I look forward to it. I can test how the second ranked player in the world plays and how can I deal with her game.
Tomorrow I have a day off, there is no match and I can rest and recover. "
