Roland Garros

Paris France, 26.05. – 08.06.2013 / GS clay


7:6(3) | 6:2

Kaia won

Kaia won her first round match at Roland Garros beating Klara Zakopalova. The match lasted 1 hour 22 minutes. Kaia was leading in the first set 5:1 but Zakopalova managed to level the set.

Kaia's own words: "I played well in the beginning of the match. Then I did not play that well and my opponent started to play better. I had my chances earlier in the first set but did not take them. I was not nervous when I had lost my lead. When the score was 5:5 I thought that I will not give her anything, if she wants to take points then she have to work for them herself.

In the second set it felt that she was upset and was sort of giving up. At 5:0 down, she started to attack everything "blindfolded" and succeeded to come back to 5:2. Luckily I then served well and won.

The things are not often turning out perfectly in the match, you have to manage and come out from different situations and today I did."

Kaia wil play Stefanie Voegele (SUI, WTA 56) in the second round. The match will be held tomorrow as the third match of the day. Play starts at 11 local time / 12 Estonian time.

Kaia lost

Kaia lost a very tight match.

Kaia's own words: "It was very competitive since the first set. She played very well. She did not give anything to ma easily, I had to work hard for my points. The deciding moment was in the third set when I was leading 4:1 and she managed to even the match. I did not play well my two service games but she did serve and play we in her games. I did play courageously in deciding moments but missed my shots by that much. She in the other hand was successful with her shots and there was nothing I could do.

Next up will be grass tournaments. First of them in Holland within 2 weeks and then Wimbledon."
