Kanepi is favored in first round down under ({{commentsTotal}})


The country's top tennis player, Kaia Kanepi (WTA 48), has a good shot to make it into the second round at the Australian Open tomorrow.

She will play 24-year-old American Irina Falconi (WTA 111) in a match played some time after 2:00 in the morning Estonian time, following the conclusion of the first match on 11th court, sport.err.ee reported.

Kanepi and Falconi have met once before, at the 2012 Brussels Ladies Open. The Estonian won handily, 6-3, 6-2.

Kanepi's best showing at the Australian Open was in 2009, when she lost in the third round.
