Kaia Kanepi confident ahead of Laura Robson clash

After registering an easy victory against Riske, the Kanepi is all set for the challenge against Laura Robson in last 16.

London: After registering an easy victory against American wildcard Alison Riske, the world number 46 Kaia Kanepi is all set for the challenge against Laura Robson in Wimbledon's last 16.

Meanwhile, Robson came from behind to defeat New Zealand's Marina Erakovic to book her place in the last 16.

"It's not scary," Kanepi said. "I actually like to play more on the big courts than on the small ones because then I feel like I'm playing a real tennis match. I like it. All the crowd will be against me, but I think I'm going to enjoy that."

The match marks the first time that Robson and Kanepi are meeting on the WTA tour.
