Score, report, and key facts
Kanepi had a head start at the beginning of the set to break Martincova in the 1st game (1-0) before consolidating her break and lead 3-0. Yet, there was more to do for Kanepi to win the set since Tereza found the way to break back in the 4th (1-3) game. The Estonian maintained her focus to break Martincova in the 7th (5-2) game before conquering the set (6-2).
Kaia won the set after she broke Martincova in the 7th (4-3) and in the 9th (6-3) game. That break was the key for Kanepi to conquer the set since she didn’t drop her serve during the rest of the set.
Martincova was not able to offer any resistance in the last 4 games of the set (from 2-3 to 6-3).
At the end of the match, Kanepi scored 58 points vs. Martincova’s 39 points.
The Estonian was great in converting all the break points (5/5). On the other side, Tereza was far from perfect in converting her break points since she converted only 33% of her break points (1/3). That was one of the key issues for her loss.
After this contest, the head to head between Kanepi and Martincova is 1-0 for Kaia.
