«I hope to go till the end. I think that start was good, so, hopefully I can keep it going. I had no idea that I will play Potapova. It is the first time I am going to play her, it’s going to be a tough match, she is playing really aggressive, so I am just going to get ready for tomorrow. Hopefully, I will have some support from the stands, I saw there a Dutch flag, so that’s good», – said Kiki after the match.
