Re: Anett Kontaveit
This year she actually hasn't had so many "weird" losses if I think of it, other than losing to higher ranked players she has lost to Bencic, Cszoregi (Moscow win hangover?), Smith (post-surgery), Hadzic (playing 14+ days in row without breaks basically), Siniakova (no excuse!
So this assures there's no reason to end up like Vika Kan in her last two tournaments (being seeded 1st or 2nd and bombing out in R2). Still too bad she decided not play that 3rd week, it would have been a backup as a bad day at the office can always happen even in R1.
Btw the slam qualies cut-offs this year were sth like this: AO 230, RG 218, Wimbledon 222. If not AO yet, then surely she should make the ones in spring.
She was also sick when she lost to Hadzic and obviously lacked motivation after the match which shall never be mentioned again
Yeah the Spring GS she really should make given that she only really has Burnie 25K to defend before the cut-off
I am become so involved in this thread now
To go into more depth, in reality these are the only opponents I can see Anett losing to in Moscow/Podgorica in the 1st/2nd Round

EDIT: Anett will actually probably not be seeded now in Podgorica as Vankova gets 24 Points for making the QF of 50K + H Kazan which come on this week and she will overtake Anett
I really thought Anett should have played those Kazans
She probably could have one one
Podgorica could be very difficult now
