Re: Anett Kontaveit

The scoreline was even worse than in France
Disappointing result considering both of their roads to the final. Maybe Timea is just a bad match-up for her
She will play in Moscow next week, but there are a number of good players she might run into quite early, like Pervak (who is doing great in Midland at the moment) and Sasnovich.

Btw is she trying to apply for a wildcard to IW qualies (as she withdrew from Beinasco and has no priority 1 tournament for the ITFs the week after)?

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Hopefully she is adjusted to the time difference as her first match in Moscow is at 7:30am Estonian time

Re: Anett Kontaveit

So as soon as the opponent is not named Timea, Anett continues with a great scoreline - defeats Ivakhnenko 60 60
Looks like having to play at 7:30 Estonian time had no negative effect after all.

R2: (8)Anett Kontaveit (EST) d. (wc)Evgeniya Rodina (RUS) 26 61 76(2)

Harder than expected. But good come-back and clutch play when serving to stay in the match and win the breaker.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Another bagel today against Dzalamidze: 63 60.
Don't think she'll get past Pervak, but I'm waiting to be proven wrong.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Being an indoor hard tournament, Sasnovich is likely to win here.
But on any other surface Anett would likely win.

If you look hard enough, you will find a purpose
other than yourself and your desires. When you do,
give that purpose your time, your money, and your
energy. Therein lies happiness

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett
Meets Sasnovich next, whose road to the final hasn't been too easy, took about 2.5 hours today also.
But it was the same in Tallinn.. We'll have to wait and see if Anett can take the 10th title.
Anyway she is basically in top 200 now!

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Sasnovich is amazing indoor player but still somehow i think overall Anett is the better player-should be an interesting one! So maybe Anett will try some WTA 250 events? I guess her rank will be enough for Q?

Petra Kvitova, Viktorya Azarenka, Maria Sharapova
Viktoriya Tomova

She will surely play some more WTA events, she said it herself before the beginning of the season. Her ranking was already enough for Auckland and now as she is about 40 places higher. Maybe Katowice or Marrakech for example?

Re: Anett Kontaveit

What an embarrassing gameplay by her in the final
Of course Sasnovich struggles with every single opponent except for Anett

Well, it is all part of growing up and learning. She will be better next time. This was one more very good week for her generally.

Ana Konjuh | Donna Vekic | Mirjana Lucic-Baroni | Ana Ivanovic | Nicole Vaidisova

Yep I definitely agree! And she seems to be playing better and better, I wouldn't be surprised to see her enter the top 100 during this season
