Flushing Meadows USA, 25.08. – 07.09.2014 / GS
Kaia won a very close match in the final set tie break.
Kaia’s own words: “In overall it was a good match. It took some time to get use to her shots as her balls were flying so fast and with a lot of topspin, her serve was quite fast also. I was a bit nervous as well in the beginning. I did calm down for the second set. Then I served better and played more fearlessly. I did try to get her moving but must of the points were short and first couple of shots decided the point. I did not get any rhythm in the match. I think I had more luck in the end, I played bravely and it worked.”
Next up will be Carla Suarez Navarro (ESP, WTA 16).
