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

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
No she wouldn't. Playing up to one's rank means you lose to the first ranked higher. She would have better her seeding to even potentially have a chance.


Good win against Linette! If she is able to Return well against Pliskova she is certainly in with a shot!

Rest in Peace Bally!

If every person Stephens lost to was ranked higher than her then she would achieve what Anett has. Obviously this statistic only works within reason but many players around the 10-20 mark achieve it.

BTW, once again Anett doesn't get a streamed court If she makes the SF though she will on Centre Court Good Luck Anett A big day ahead, potentially ending with her in the Final If she makes the Final she will get a SE

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Ah my bad. Read victors as victories. Makes sense now.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

A Google Translated Quote from Fantasy Hero's blog about Anett

"For a set I followed the young Anett Kontaveit (pictured left), who, after having eliminated our Burnett in the first round did Filotto against Magda Linette 7-5, 6-3.

The young Estonian recalled in an almost monstrous young Maria Sharapova. Not only are the full Nike, the blond hair in a ponytail and aggressive play, no, very self-confident attitude, the way you walk and even some of his expressions seem copied from Masha."

I don't know why everyone thinks she is so similar to Masha Anyway, if she can replicate her game I would be happy Hopefully we get another report especially if she doesn't beat Pliskova and get to play on a streamed court

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I never saw any similarity to Marla. Anett has a better tan and her bf is not as good as Grigor

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett ended up losing 6-3 7-6(5)
Against Serve-Bots like Pliskova it will always be tough for someone like her because she is prone to concentration lapses although hopefully that will improve with age and experience. I mean, when you get broken in the 1st Game, the Sets almost gone especially when she surrendered so many 15-30, 30-30 and Deuce opportunities A nice fight back in the end and it was clear she was winning most of the rallies given every time there was a Scoreboard stall she won the point Hopefully she can go a few steps further next week and finally get on a stream

BTW, she will go up to a Career High of #182 and overtakes Konjuh and de Vroome, meaning that only Bencic, Siniakova and Vekic are higher ranked than her and younger Hopefully with some good runs at Wimbledon and Nottingham she can break into the Top 150 (85 Points needed ). Qualifying at Wimbledon and a good run next week should secure it and then she can work on getting a US Open seed

EDIT: Diyas has managed to choke quite succesfully against Oudin of all people so Anett may now only go up to #183

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett

Still a very POSITIVE tournament for her, QF in a 75k
She's getting more and more consistent in her results

The thing that pisses me off is their ignorance with the streaming The Tournament Director knew people wanted to watch...
Anyway, the other sad thing is that on ITF good points don't really kick in until SF and even Finals are slightly unfair IMO. She had a very legitimate opportunity to make the Final (would have been cool to have Kont. vs Kont. ) and given Diyas' form maybe even win it She already destroyed MLDB. That would have been great for her ranking and put her in a very very very good position to be well into the Top 100 by the end of the year

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett's draw for the 50K Qualifying is almost exactly the same, except she is 8th Seed instead of 6th

(3)Viktorija Golubic (SUI) v (wc)Maia Lumsden (GBR)
Stephanie Foretz Gacon (FRA) v (wc)Sarah Beth Askew (GBR)
Maria Sanchez (USA) v Mayo Hibi (JPN)
(8)Anett Kontaveit (EST) v (wc)Eden Silva (GBR)

A weak British player in R1, then Sanchez in R2 and then maybe Foretz-Gacon in R3 If she can get through the Qualifying Draw which she really should MD should be a lot easier for her this time so a SF is definitely achievable

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I think she can win this week. I also wish good luck to Olivia. That black top looks good and she should wear all black too.

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

By far the easiest qualifying section.
