Very interesting, thanks for sharing I think it's great you get involved both in Dutch and Estonian Living in Australia you wouldn't even need all that

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I know. But Australia is multi-cultural. Even though there is no competitor to English, it is nice to be able to speak to a tourist (we have a lot of those) in their language. There are quite a few Dutch people in Australia but I only know of one Estonian and he came here when he was 2 so even though he speaks Estonian he is not really Estonian.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

These are videos of Anett at Orange Bowl:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8rdsIv20LI
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7Jif..._order&list=UL
The second video is of Putintseva but you get to see the outcome of Anett's shots. She obviously plays more defensively in Juniors than in the videos of her I saw in fed cup

Have there been any news reports for Anett's schedule for 2012?
I know she's playing Aus Opem whichh will be preceded with Loy Yang Traralgon most likely but possibly Czech G1

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett is 4 seed for Loy Yang Traralon. If she gets a good draw she may make the final or even win. I think she has a genuine shot at the Australian Open crown. I think by the end of 2012 she should be between 200 and 300, be top 5 juniors and then I think she should focus on the professional events. She could potentially be top 100 before her 18th birthday!

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Kromacheva has pulled out of Traralgon. Anett will probably still remain seed 4 as Putintseva gets a higher seed because of her WTA ranking? We also don't know if Mestach is really playing...
Anett has 250 points to defend in March from the Asian tour. Most likely she is not playing it this year so she needs some good results from Australia to remain in top 10.

Re: Anett Kontaveit



Anett received 2 awards, in U16 and U18. She said she'll try to focus more on the pro circuit, and do her best at junior grand slams.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett could be 2nd seed as An Sophie is going to lose tonnes of ranking points because of the south american circuit. An sophie will have 617.5 ranking points going into loy yang but anett will have 772.5. Even if Anett loses first round in singles and doubles at both loy yang and australian open, she will probably be ranked number 5 behind khromacheva, barty, bouchard and min. There is a decent chance that she will be top 3 if she performs well at the two tournaments

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett could definitely win . She has beaten Eugenie and An Sophie is overrated. There is nothing really standing in her way.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Is Anett just going to play the GAs and focus on professional events?

She said that she will focus on pro events and will only play junior slams and couple other big junior tournaments.
