Stuttgart GER, 21.04. – 27.04.2014 / Premier
Kaia won 7:6 6:4 in 1 hour and 34 minutes against Johanna Konta, who made to the main draw as a lucky loser.
Kaia’s own words: “It was a tough match today. In overall it was an average match from my side but luckily at important moments I played well. She was also quite good, probably as she had not much to loose she played with no pressure and was occasionally hitting very well. It was a bit slippery at times and I could not get my feet moving but I will get more used to it when I play more on clay.”
Kaia will meet Sara Errani (WTA 11, ITA ) in the second round.
