I hope she doesn't feel too much pressure
She seems to be such a nice and happy person and it would suck if she got sucked into the media bubble, especially if they eventually start hating on her

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Maybe she kind of is sucked in there.. I mean if she really already thought of the Wimbledon ball already against Bouchard.. That's another reason she should stop with the juniors, maybe she's a bit overconfident against them, but then loses

But I looked at the headlines involving Anett, those are not even over the top lately Though the one reporting victory could still include VÕIMAS! or something similar

I know what you mean
I think she uses Juniors as a way to get her confidence up but she may be too reliant on it...
I can't really say that though after she just won a $25,000
She will have my Avatar forever if she wins Junior RG I am sure that will get her through
So I give you all permission to thank me for getting Anett the title

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Still nothing about her win in Estonian online media. And there are "news" about footballer's wife sunbathing and a bird dancing Gangnam style

This is Anett's Roland Garros Draw:
(1)Ana Konjuh (CRO) v Katie Boulter (GBR)
Jamie Loeb (USA) v Nina Stojanovic (SRB)
Petra Uberalova (SVK) v (wc)Solene Guyomard (FRA)
(16)Ipek Soylu (TUR) v Veronika Kudermetova (RUS)

(10)Karin Kennel (SUI) v (wc)Margot Yerolymos (FRA)
(LL)Beatrice Lombardo (ITA) v (Q)Iryna Shymanovich (BLR)
Ioana Ducu (ROU) v Anna Danilina (KAZ)
(6)Darya Kasatkina (RUS) v Gabriela Pantuckova (CZE)

(3)Katerina Siniakova (CZE) v Elizaveta Kulichkova (RUS)
Carolina Meligeni Alves (BRA) v Domenica Gonzalez (ECU)
Maria Constanza Vega (ARG) v (wc)Oceane Dodin (FRA)
(14)Carol Zhao (CAN) v Katherine Ip (HKG)

(12)Christina Makarova (USA) v (Q)Chiara Grimm (SUI)
(Q)Alina Silich (RUS) v Ayaka Okuno (JPN)
(wc)Carla Touly (FRA) v (SE)Anhelina Kalinina (UKR)
(5)Antonia Lottner (GER) v Alejandra Cisneros (MEX)

(7)Katy Dunne (GBR) v Adrijana Lekaj (CRO)
(wc)Jade Suvrijn (FRA) v (Q)Sara Sorribes Tormo (ESP)
Maria Marfutina (RUS) v Barbara Haas (AUT)
(9)Camila Giangreco Campiz (PAR) v (SE)Louisa Chirico (USA)

(15)Anett Kontaveit (EST) v Ilka Csoregi (ROU)
(wc)Estelle Cascino (FRA) v Hikari Yamamoto (JPN)
Sandra Samir (EGY) v Helen Ploskina (UKR)
(4)Varvara Flink (RUS) v (Q)Kristina Schmiedlova (SVK)

(8)Ching-Wen Hsu (TPE) v Victoria Rodriguez (MEX)
Anastasiya Komardina (RUS) v (wc)Alice Bacquie (FRA)
Sara Tomic (AUS) v (Q)Jana Fett (CRO)
(11)Taylor Townsend (USA) v (Q)Viktoriya Lushkova (UKR)

(13)Barbora Krejcikova (CZE) v Laura Ucros (COL)
Beatriz Haddad Maia (BRA) v (wc)Theo Gravouil (FRA)
(Q)Erin Routliffe (CAN) v Fiona Ferro (FRA)
(2)Belinda Bencic (SUI) v Alice Matteucci (ITA)

It seems that Roland Garros likes the Estonians this year (aside from Jurgen )
No problems IMO until Quarters where Sorribes Tormo may be awkward but if she for some reason fails she will have no problems with Dunne or that random Paraguyan
If she gets past QF, SF vs Haddad Maia/Krejcikova/Bencic/Townsend is very winnable
Then Final against Konjuh or Siniakova

I really hope for a title here and given the way her draw is done, each round is a bit of a step up so she has a good chance IMO

BTW, it is a shame that she will be playing Roland Garros because it would be really great IMO if she could play Birmingham Qualies... It is always so weak they put Doubles Players in and tonnes of WCs so she could win a round, get some practice and if she qualified she gets a really easy R1 opponent because it is a 64 Player International

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Quite OK draw to begin with, if she keeps her good form she should beat them easily. Sorribes could be very tough opponent (there is also Chirico who has done good lately, even beat Bencic in straights not a long time ago).

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Oh man, it was quite an exciting week for Anett's fans, wasn't it? I haven't been following too much tennis lately, but I'm still happy Anett had such a dominant 25K tourney. What the hell did she do in the first 5 months of the year?

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett's latest Twitter Post:
"So happy to win my first 25k! Already in Paris French open starts on Monday for me. #letsdothis #happykid"

She seems really determined to do well in Paris which is great

There are also some photos of her from the tournament Unfortunately not as many as in the Mens Futures Doubles Final

http://mostennis.ru/default2.aspx?s=0&p=227

I am sorry that I couldn't embed them but they came from thumbnails which are tiny

Hopefully more photos and a video will come out (last year there was a sort of highlights of Kalabina and Katsitadze at a Moscow tournament but it wasn't this one )

BTW, seems the media realised what has happened

OMG No
Well, even though Estonia is a very small country, it seems they are all trying to jump on Anett's wagon
They'll probably name a tennis stadium after her

How is Kaia treated And how was she treated when she was Anett's age

This a chart constructed to determine favourites by someone Anett wins every category except "comeback" and "struggling" but I am not sure what that means... Anett often wins close matches so I presume it means "she hasn't been pushed because she is obviously so amazing"

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Starts tomorrow, 1st match on court 5.
Anett plays doubles with Uberalova, they are the 6th seeds. They play tomorrow against Gonzalez/Haddad Maia, it is last match on court 8.
