Kaia won in 1 hour and 10 minutes and reached to the second round. This was her fourth win against Jankovic.
Kaia’s own words: “I was positively surprised that I managed to play so well during the entire match, considering that I have not had good rhythm lately. I did not have any pressure today and this is when I play my best tennis.
When I serve well, as I did today, the grass court suits my style well. You have to be aggressive from the beginning of the point and move your opponent around. I have positive memories form court number 2 as I won against Kerber at the same court last year. I also like when there is a big crowd watching my matches, it creates a great vibe of a good competition.”
Next up will be Yaroslava Shvedova (KAZ, WTA 65). Shvedova is leading their head-to-head 2:1. The last encounter was in Indian Wells this year where Shvedova won 6:3, 6:2. The match will be played on Thursday.
Kaia and Anna Tatishvili (USA) are playing doubles first round match against Belinda Bencic (SUI) and Tsvetlana Pironkova (BUL) on Wednesday. The match is scheduled at court number 4 as the third match of the day.
