Re: Anett Kontaveit

Amazing win over Cornet. It's always hard to follow up a big win, so as a young player, she has nothing to be ashamed of.

Anett is saying that she dislikes the whole "coach on court" thing and even when she had a coach she never used it.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

But obviously she needs to find a good coach as soon as possible.

Really That surprises me given how her concentration wavers sometimes... I think she is the 1st player to dislike it... I know some don't do it but to actually dislike it is humorous

BTW, do you know if ITF and WTA Qualifying have this coaching?

DO you know if there has been any movement? Is she convinced to find an International coach? Doing well in Sweden would have helped that.

BTW, I really think Anett should have entered Landisville/Caracas as well as Montreal so that if she made Montreal Qualies she would pull out. I don't know what Anett's ranking was for Qualifying Acceptance but I have my doubts she will make the cut. Having Landisville is a nice fall-back position also if she flops in Vancouver. Hopefully she intends to play tournaments after US Open in America because it would be such a waste if she just played 2 tournaments which are quite far apart

Anett still a hit on WTA website



Oh and BTW due to Melanie Oudin's good results in Carson 50K she will overtake Anett in the rankings, rendering her being ranked 145 She will be 8th Seed in Vancouver If Anett wants a USO Qualifying Seed she will have to mae at least a Quarter Final unless she does well in Montreal

Maybe not dislike, but she says that she wants to think, analyze and make decisions on court herself.

WTA yes, ITF's depends how organizers decide. Since 2013 it's allowed to allow on court coaching.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

These were her exact words according to the article in Postimees:

Lõpetuseks tõdes Kontaveit, et pole treenerit veel leidnud ning kellegagi läbirääkimisi ei pea. Otsingud jätkuvad. Juhendajast oleks abi mängu eel ja järel, kuid mitte ajal, selgitas ta: "Väljakul meeldib ise mõelda, analüüsida ja tegutseda. Ka siis, kui mul treener oli, ei kutsunud teda väljakule nõuandeid jagama."

Btw the Montreal qualies list is very strong indeed, the last one in is currently Rogers, #104. Maybe Anett hopes to get a wildcard? I'm also surprised she didn't enter a 25k as a backup.

I was just thinking, because I have never seen it happen before on ITF

Re: Anett Kontaveit

How exciting Really pounding her way towards Top 100 I am surprised she is so low on the race as I don't recall her having any really amazing results last year... Only 84 Points from Podgorica and Margaret River

At least not she has made her Goal Making Top 100 by the end of the year also seems very possible

Re: Anett Kontaveit

New career-high, 145. in the rankings.

Starts against Olga Savchuk in Vancouver. Should be winnable.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

The first couple of rounds should be winnable surely.
There will be streams from three courts also.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

How exciting with the stream Unless Anett plays really badly, she should at least make the QFs... Tatishvili is not in amazing form but has been playing some tough players so hopefully Anett can make a SF Min vs Gajdosova will be close I think...

No Doubles however I wanted her to play with Krajicek Anyway, hopefully she plays some more when she gets back to Europe
