Re: Anett Kontaveit

The first two rounds should be winnable I guess

Re: Anett Kontaveit

She really should win the 1st and I'd have her as favourite for the 2nd She definitely has a shot against Watson however Heather just won 100K + H Prague I wish it was last year's ranking distribution where she'd probably get 50 Points instead of 30 A good draw though She should be happy with it And her 1st Grand Slam

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Btw, why is Nottingham 75k cut-off so high this year? Last year it was 176 for MD, this year it is 128 And Anett barely made the qualies..
Were some WTA tournaments re-scheduled maybe?

Seeing this I'd rather have preferred her playing a weakish clay ITF after RG qualies and then go for Nottingham 50k the week before Wimbledon qualies..

Maybe less ITFs in the same week? Less European Players in the Top 220 also contributes as Asian/American Players are more inclined to play on Grass? Maybe people realise how much smarter it is than playing more on Clay? It may still drop down more who knows It will be good experience none the less

BTW, it is raining in Paris so Anett may not get on at all today Have they ever moved a GS event Indoors I remember US Open Juniors that one year

Pretty much the same ITFs actually, they have removed Karshi, but I don't think it should have much effect..

Yeah, the forecast is looking bad in Paris, not much better for the next days as well actually

It is quite odd then. Maybe it's just player preference like I said before or just fluke... I think Anett should have played a WTA this week or ITF last just to get her a bit more ready for RG... Although she was away for like 6 weeks so I get why she'd want some time at home

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett is really struggling at the moment. She is down 0:3.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Horrible start, hopefully she will benefit from the rain break..

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Not a surprising start really. She hasn't played a match on red clay since september

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Geez that was bad.. Anett really should have played some form of ITF or WTA event before this... She's lucky she got an easy draw to "warm-up" Even if it was a 10K at least it would have gotten her in the motions...

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Managed to win 64 75
Much more difficult than I expected.. 20 points earned at least and some good money as well

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Nice to see her fight a bit and get the win

I originally thought she'd make FQR easily but I'm less sure now I still think she can

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Very pleased with the win
Winning is what matters. Also the fact that she was able to win in two sets in the end is a nice bonus
Good luck in the next round girl
