US Open Day 10: Kanepi, Again

Curtain Call

Player: Kaia Kanepi
Nation: Estonia
Age: 25
Current Ranking: 32
Notable Conquests: Jelena Jankovic (4th seed, Serbia) and Yanina Wickmayer (15th, Belgium)
Today's Result: loss to Vera Zvonareva (7th, Russia) in straight sets

This represents a first for me. This is my first time featuring a player in this space in two consecutive slams. Both times, it was an easy choice. It's been another marvelous event for this Estonian on the rise. Her win against Wickmayer was particularly impressive. She lost the first set 6-0, then came back to win. That takes some gumption. Well done. The ranking will get another hefty boost.
