After sitting out on three major tournaments, tennis player Kaia Kanepi has recovered from her shoulder injury and is preparing for events in Indian Wells and Miami.
“We have two weeks to go before the games and I think she is more or less ready to go. We don't plan to show up as tourists,” coach Silver Karjus told ETV.
Kanepi last played a month ago in the Australian Open, after which she skipped Dubai, Paris and Doha.
The 26-year-old had a stellar start this season, winning the second Women's Tennis Association tournament of her career, but that followed with a disappointingly quick elimination in the Australian open.
This week's Women's Tennis Association rankings set Kanepi back to 31th overall.
