Brisbane AUS, 29.12. – 04.01.2014 / Premier
Kaia won in two hours 6:3/6:7/6:2.
Kaia’s own words: “The draw in the first round was interesting as two years ago I played against Panova in the opening round and won in the third set. The match today was okay, considering it was quite long time since my last match. The court here is fast and there were not many long points. The serve was working well, except fore these two games in the second set when I was a break up. I got a little nervous as I sometimes do when ahead. In the decider I was more solid.”
Next up will be Carla Suarez Navarro (ESP, WTA 17). Kaia is leading their head-to-head 3:2. The match will be played tomorrow at 19 local time/ 11 Estonian time.
