Wimbledon GBR, 24.06. – 06.07.2013 / GS Grass
Kaia won and reached to the third round.
Kaia's own words: "I played well in the beginning, I did not make any mistakes and she made quite many errors herself. Then the situation changed a bit, she started to hit a winner after winner. At one point I also did not manage the returns well. The lefty serve with spin on the grass is very difficult to return. Then I started to return a bit more further back and it worked out better.
In the second set tie break I tried to pay aggressively but made some errors and was 1:5 behind. I thought that I must keep playing. In the deciding set I tired to continue with my game plan - I played aggressively and hit heavily.
The longer I was on court the more confident I felt. I felt very comfortable with my groundstrokes, I found a good rhythm playing my game on grass today."
Next up is Alison Riske (USA, WTA 126) who won her first round match against Romina Oprandi (SUI, WTA 34) and second round match against Urszula Radwanska (POL, WTA 44). Kaia has not played against Riske before. The match will most probably be played tomorrow.
