Karolina Muchova and Kaia Kanepi will take on each other in the quarterfinal of the 2022 WTA Tallinn Open on Friday, September 30.
In one hour and forty minutes, Kaia Kanepi defeated world no. 62 Ann Li in straight sets to go to the second round, 7-5, 7-5. She suffered three breaks in the process, saving two back-to-back breakpoints in the last game after falling behind 0-2 and 2-4 in the second set. It is just the second time since the end of the clay swing that she has won two straight matches after defeating Korea Open semifinalist Jelena Ostapenko after falling behind a set in the first round. However, the Estonian has had a standout season, reaching the final in D.C. and the Australian Open quarterfinals.
After an impressive comeback against Viktorija Golubic, Karolina Muchova advanced into her first quarterfinal of the year with a score of 4-6, 6-0, 6-2. The Czech, who defeated Jessika Ponchet, 6-0, 6-2, in just 63 minutes on Monday, has had a flawless week overall, with the exception of the opening set against the Swiss opponent.After making it to the quarterfinals of three slams, the 26-year-old, who entered the top 20 in mid-2021, was in a strong position to advance. However, she had a difficult year with injuries, taking a nearly seven-month layoff, and only competing in eight tournaments in the first eight months of this season (6-7).
