Re: Anett Kontaveit

I can't believe they prefer Kiick's match to Duval's on stadium court, so this means no video again
Surprisingly Anett has entered Trnava 75k / Cagnes 100k as well. Isn't she taking some weeks off after three consecutive tournaments? Of course I wouldn't mind seeing her playing as much as possible and she can always withdraw if she gets "too many" matches in the States

IK, Kiick is so boring And Duval is from Florida plus has the French background, similar to Louisiana I am shell-shocked literally At least her Doubles is on a stream

Anyway, I was also surprised she entered Cagnes/Trnava because not only does she have a lot of tournaments going on but she has other commitments like school and a life in Estonia... Still, it will definitely be a good finder of her level against the really good girls on Red Clay

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Last year the MD cut-off to Trnava was 183, so it is likely that she won't make it to MD. In that case she only needs to win one round in Indian Harbour Beach to already make it quite pointless rushing to the Trnava qualies. She'd be jetlagged and tired from the trip. Or maybe it is her plan for the scenario where she does extremely well in Dothan and Charlottesville and decides to skip IHB

I can't be sure but I sense that she entered it as a fall back position, like if she did really badly in her next two and needed some extra match play at a high level I would be surprised if she actually turned around and played

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Looks like it's raining there, they keep rescheduling the matches. The forecast does not seem to be better for tomorrow either.

Lost to Duval 4-6 4-6, without ever really getting into it. And received walkover in doubles (both semis were w.o.).

Anett being interviewed by kids

Nothing too surprising, except that her current favorite player is John Isner and if she could be someone else for a day then she would be a squirrel

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Nice interview
Btw in the match with Duval she was down *1-5 in the first set, then managed to come back to 45* 30-30, but then Duval got 2 points.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

A shame that she lost against Vicky but she will still reach a Career High in Singles and the 50K Doubles Title is very impressive Kremen is a very good Doubles partner who she should try and keep Better than Ysaline

There is a recording of their match on the USTA livestream.com account It's so funny hearing her speak English She has such a funny and cute accent And she thanked her mama Hopefully she can go farther in the Singles this week but I still thought this was one of her career best weeks :0 it's a shame the new ranking system punishes consistency Hopefully next week she can get another title

OMG her squirrel comment is too funny I think that's what the basis of her friendship with Varya Flink is

Also Meelis, what do you mean when you say she "never really got into it"? Did she say that somewhere?

Re: Anett Kontaveit

No, it's purely my feelings following the scoreboard. She fell behind right from the start and it never felt like she might turn it around.

Yeah I guess.

Something I gathered from watching her in Doubles (and it may just be because she is playing Doubles) but one of the reasons I think Anett has been so successful on Clay is that she actually doesn't hit the ball that hard. She hits a lot heavier with a lot more depth and also hits Angles without just bashing. Maybe if she incorporated this more into her Hard Court game she would cut-back on UEs and win more matches At Wimbledon though I guess it is better for her to bash
