Kaia won and will meet the first seed Caroline Wazniacki (DEN, WTA 11) in the final. Kaia and Caroline will meet the sixth time, so far Caroline leads 3:2 in head-to-head. The finaly will be played tomorrow at 12 local time/ 6 Estonian time.
Kaia's own words: "I was quite dizzy today. First time I felt alive, when it was 3:3 in the deciding set. Then it become interesting. Physically I was a bit stiff, did not have lightness in my movement, a bit of lack of energy. It was very difficult game also mentally. My opponent played very long shots with lots of topspin to everywhere. It was very tricky.
I have played with Wozniacki several times. I try to be patient and aggressive as well. I cannot start just hitting back to her but I cannot take may risks as well. I think I will need a lot of patients for tomorrow.
In general I am very satisfied to play that much at my first tournament after such a long break.
Tomorrow we will fly to Tokyo and I will have to play there on Monday. It is a bit dense with the matches at the moment but I hope I will pull through"
