Anyway, it's a shame I wasn't able to watch because I saw from 5-6* until 5-6* 40-15 but had to leave. Still, I am so happy she managed to save the SPs and Qualify for her 1st WTA MD How is she playing people as aside from Podgorica where she seemed a bit sluggish I haven't really seen her play... Anyway let's hope she gets a stream for her next match which she very well might if she plays Cirstea or Wickmayer due to their seeding and Wickmayer as a former champion or that she draws a Qualifier and then she has a great opportunity for Round 2 Either way, there is some sort of benefit I am so excited and so happy with how she has started the new year Falconi mustn't really like her by now In Margaret River she had 4-0 in the 2nd and here she had SPs I hope next time she doesn't actually win a set

Also, is Anett's game really that much like Sharapova's?

If she played last year when Fanning was here I am sure she could have gotten one if she tried

OMG this is great although Sachie has improved... Still, a massive opportunity for a R16 here And a ranking boost And also maybe a Knapp rematch

Actually it's the 14 mins from 2-3* to 3-4* It's a shame there is no audio and the quality is so bad and that I MISSED IT but at the same time I'm really excited that we're now seeing her at WTA events I can't believe that she is the only Singles match not getting a stream tomorrow against Ishizu so let's hope she wins and then she'll get one vs Knapp

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Oh, didn't check, too bad the dramatic ending isn't there then
Hope someone uploads at least the last minutes of that match as well.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Great way to start the season.

How did you become such a big fan, if you haven't seen her play that much chingching? By your cheering I would have guessed you saw her a million times.

Rest in Peace Bally!

Re: Anett Kontaveit

It is such a shame the Aussie Open cut-off is gonna be so much higher than last year with players like Ferrer-Suarez & Omae in directly and the cut-off being at #277. Hopefully she can squeeze in, but it is looking pretty bad at the moment.

Rest in Peace Bally!

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Currently it doesn't look like that many withdrawals (if at all) have been made in the last 2 weeks.

Makes no sense for the cut-off to be that much higher this year actually as less points are handed out in qualies now

She is 33rd out atm or sth like that.. But I suppose not all the alts will be staying and waiting until the last minute unlike Anett who will play Burnie anyway. So she basically has to hang around there in the morning of the first qualies day/the evening before and hope that someone withdraws?

I don't really get why the cut-off is so much higher this year as well. Probably because of the money.
Yup. Pretty much. Last year none withdrew and no alternates got in, but it has happened in the past and with some luck she may sneak in somehow, seems rather unlikely at the moment though.

Rest in Peace Bally!

I have seen her but she has only been on streams a few times in her career I have met her which helped
