Kaia Kanepi is a professional tennis player from Estonia who was born on June 10, 1985 (Estonian pronunciation: [ki. knepi]). On August 20, 2012, she climbed as high as she had ever gone in the world, to No. 15, and she has since won four WTA Tour singles championships.
With 19 victories over seeds in the opening week of Grand Slams, only three active players (Victoria Azarenka, Venus Williams, and Serena Williams) have more, according to The Guardian, who calls her a “resident Grand Slam upset expert.”
( She is the first Estonian to do so, as well as the first to be ranked inside the top 15 in the world, and she has reached seven Grand Slam quarterfinals in all four championships (French Open in 2008 and 2012, Wimbledon in 2010 and 2013, US Open in 2010 and 2017, and Australian Open in 2022).
One of Estonia’s most well-known and accomplished professional tennis players in history, Kanepi has achieved a great deal. At the Gaz de France Stars in 2006, Kanepi—the first female athlete from Estonia—made it to the final but lost to Kim Clijsters.
She then won her maiden singles title in Palermo in 2010, making history as the country’s first female player.
