Kaia won

Kaia won both matches today and reached to the quarterfinal.

Kaia's own words: "It was difficult today. I have never played a match so early in the morning. It did not feel like going to the competition this morning. When I started the match against Cibulkova I was able to start off very well. It was very competitive and tricky. I played aggressively and mostly it went well, my game was on today. It was very tense in the end but I was more lucky, played aggressively and won.

With Cepelova I played well in the first set, I managed to keep my focus on the match. In the second set I felt quite tired and it was more difficult to concentrate on the game. I tired to keep myself fresh for the points and in overall it was ok match. It is very tricky to play two matches a day with such a short break in between.

If there will be rain tomorrow the matches will probably be held indoors."

Kaia will meet Varvara Lepchenkoga (USA, WTA 29) on Friday at 11 local time / 12 Estonian time.
