Re: Anett Kontaveit

I know. I am personally against tournament whoring but for Juniors I think its acceptable. When you can only play 12 tourneys a year, you cant risk getting a bad draw or not playing well. If Anett wants competitive match play, then do it at higehr level challengers or wta, not chaallengers. Whats the point ion taking a risk in losing whn even if you win you dont get huge amount of ranking points?? Even La MArsa would have been better

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I seriously doubt she's gonna try WTA this year. Looks like she wants to take it very slowly. Unless maybe she does really really well in those challengers, but even then I think no. After Tallinn she was talking about "having to return to 10k if she does not succeed in 25k-s".

Returning to 10ks should be a last resort as she can basically win everyone she plays. Its a good idea to take it slow, she is only 16!!!
But I do think if she was the ambitious type that a WTA international Quarterfinal or a high level challenger semi would be doable and a great result. If only Estonia had a challenger

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Can anyone think of a calender after these tournaments???
For example, lets say she makes semis bath, wins tunis and quarters chiasso. Her rankin will be top 400. Do you think she will play some more 25s?? If so, which ones. Or will she consider 50s??

Re: Anett Kontaveit

just found Lauren Davis, who won 2010 Orange Bowl, is now a top 200 player after first round win at IW yesterday, so if Anett wants to make that push and has the chance to do so, why not?

agreed
and i am not criticising lauren, she is a great persona and has a really good game but the god have blessed anett with a bigger physique so from a younger age hopefully she can match it with the big ones. And lauren has an easy second round which is great to see

Re: Anett Kontaveit

1 or 2 players are withdrawing everyday
The field is gradually weakening
Anett now has a good chance to go far, or even win if she plays as well as fed cup

Re: Anett Kontaveit

The tournament has now weakened considerably. There will be some unranked players in qualifying and the last direct acceptance is below 300. Anett has a great chance now. A semi or final is do able if she can replicate fed cup form. Is it just me or does anett not play as well at home (this years tallinn 10k, fed cup??)

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett's draw in Bath

Elitsa KOSTOVA (BUL) [1]
Patrycja SANDUSKA (POL) (Q)
Anett KONTAVEIT (EST) (JE)
Alize LIM (FRA)

Her first match is probably on Wednesday.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

A very good draw for anett if she can get past elitsa. If she can get past the second round (i dont see her losing first round if she can gain any type of good form), the semi finals is very much possible
