Kanepi upsets top 20 player in first round of Aussie tourney ({{commentsTotal}})

2015 started well for two of the country's top individual sports stars. Kaia Kanepi knocked off the world's no. 13 ranked tennis player at the Brisbane International while wrestler Heiki Nabi shut out his opponent in a German bout.

Kanepi, who finished up 2014 ranked 51st, beat Andrea Petkovic (WTA 13) 6-4, 5-7, 6-4. Kanepi broke the German's serve in the seventh game of the third set, which proved the decisive break in a set where both players had trouble holding serve.

Kanepi, herself a former top 20 player, will next face American Madison Brengle (WTA 91) on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, later on Sunday, Greco-Roman wrestler Heiki Nabi, a two-time world champion, posted an overwhelming point victory of 8-0 over Nebi Iliaz in the 130 kg heavyweight class as his Bundesliga team, KSV Kollerbach trounced KSV Aalen 05, 18-5.
