R2 would probably be against 1st seeded Puig.
Burnett's situation is quite perplexing as she has had some really close matches against good players but hasn't won one in ages. I think Anett has a very legitimate shot here and the match vs Puig will be very fun to watch if em can win her 1st Round

Anyway, Anett gets the day off so hopefully she can rest up and be ready for Tuesday

I was just about to post this

IMO favourite for SF Unless the Serve-Bot actually shows up Can't believe Mirjana lost to Katy Dunne
If she plays well I thinks she should come through

BTW, I was just watching some of Anett's infamous match vs Taylor and seriously all the way up until 6-3 3-1* 30-40 she was playing like a Top 50 Player, much better than Cornet did vs Townsend It just shows what level she can produce and it seems she is getting more and more consistent which is just amazing

Finally, it seems Anett has moved over to the new Babolat Racket which has the chip in it or something Nice to see her keeping up with the latest technologies

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett won 63 57 63
Was leading 4-0* in the 3rd set but it went 4*-3. After a loooong game where both had many Bps/Gps, Anett managed to hold. Got fast to 40-0 lead in the next game and won the match on 2nd MP

Next is Linette who beat Ozaki in 3.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Well done!!! It was sad to see the 4:0 lead melt in the third and that long game, when Burnett had many break points. But Anett stayed cool and took the match!!!

Re: Anett Kontaveit

YAY Anett
It's nice to see her bounce back after losing the 2nd Hopefully she can win some more rounds now and get some revenge against Linette from Tallinn last year

Re: Anett Kontaveit

There are some interesting statistics about Anett this year
The average rank of the players she lost to is #178. And that is including the fact that the likes of Townsend, Bacsinszky and Watson were heavily under-ranked along with Ishizu's form and Sasnovich's establishment as an Indoor GOAT. The fact that the average rank of her victors is higher than hers is a good thing and many on the WTA lack this For example, players like Stephens do not have this record.

In addition, of Anett's 14 Top 200 wins, 11 of them have come so far this year. There have been other matches such as against Gibbs where she really should have won meaning that she is beating players ranked above her on a regular basis. In fact, in 8 of Anett's 10 Tournaments (those two both happen to have been WTAs) Anett has beaten someone ranked higher than her in the tournament These are all very positive signs as she heads into her match against Linette which BTW is on a stream

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Of course it's harder in WTA to achieve that the average rank of the players one beats is higher than their own rank Especially if one's ranked pretty high themselves, as the chance of playing someone with higher rank decreases. So Stephens is not a good example

Anyway. Looks like they'll be playing only doubles inside today. England's rain

And Anett has been moved off the streamed court for tomorrow

Anyway, It is not that much harder on WTA... Especially if you are Stephens and you only play big events. If she played up to her ranking at most tournaments she would be like Anett

Hopefully she can move through without too much fuss because the match against Pliskova could be very important

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Great revenge for Tallinn If she could get past Pliskova that's when the ranking points finally start to become beneficial If she can keep up this form she really should make MD at Wimbledon
