As always that depends on how many wild-cards are above her and protected ranking entrants behind her. But 104 top ranked players will get to the main draw, there are 32 seeds in qualifying, so the cut-off for seeding will probably be somewhere between 135-145.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Seeing Anett on the WTA website just reminds me of how long I have been a fan I still remember like it was yesterday when she beat Dana Ihsanova 6-0 6-2 and I knew she'd be something. Then she won Tallinn 10K. Then Fed Cup, Asian Juniors, that random 10K Sweden loss doing well vs Vuvurenka at Fed Cup, Roland Garros Juniors, Almere 10K, Wimby R3, playing those Finnish tournaments with Dinah Pfizenmaier, winning Savitaipale, US Open Junior loss to Vickery after losing to AK Schmiedlova, average results including a win against Becca in 10K Sweden, qualifying for that 25K where Chris gave the 1st report on her ever... Helsinki and then Eddie Herr + Orange Bowl What a year that was and what this now is Such happy thoughts, she deserves it Hopefully Kaia will cheer for her

Oh and of course I remember when she qualified for 10K Savitaipale in her 1st ever Pro Event, and lost to Syna Kayser

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett is not playing so well at the moment. It is 5:4 to Cepelova, on serve, but Anett has really struggeling on serve... Almost every time Anett has a break point, she hits the ball into the net...

Cepelova breaks serve and wins the first set 6:4.

Back to reality. A virtual bagel in the second set.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Well, that was terrible... Anett lost 4:6 3:6 to Cepelova. I think it is safe to say Anett beat herself... Today her serve was absent, too many UE's. Oh well, it's still a good experience... I guess.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Well she lost 4 & 3. It's a shame because she was up a break in set 1 (*3-1 up) and a double break in set 2 (*3-0 up), only to lose the match 4 & 3. In set 2 she basically lost 6 games in a row.

She seems like a truely nice girl and is fun to watch, but from I've seen of her it seems to me that all she can do is bash the ball whatever the circunstances are, with no plan B whatsoever. And there are lots of girls out there who can bash the ball about as well, if better. She needs to work on developping a more versatile game. She's been totally outsmarted by Cepelova.

I was so upset that I cried all the way to the chip shop

Cepelova will probably be tougher, I mean Cepelova's probably happy too to play Anett instead of Alize.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Looking on the bright side, this was probably the last match on clay she'll play this year. All hardcourt from now until April 2015 I suppose.
