Yesterday's news
Anett obviously doesn't like Asian players or the conditions, but after she won the second, I thought she'd take out the third
Anyway, I really hope she plays 25K Netanya in Israel as she has good memories from Israel, and I think she can win it

The really sad thing is that if she played a 10K, then she still could have lost First Round given Zhang's ranking

According to itftennis.com Zhang will be 18 in August. So it is more like 1.5 yrs older.
But anyway, the outcome is still very very disappointing. If Anett cannot beat 700+ ranked players, then she has nothing to do in 25k-s.

Let's hope it is a temporary slump. Too bad we don't get any feedback from her team.

Maybe the conditions do not suit her
Although she won some G1s in Malaysia
I think it is just a temporary slump and that she will be back soon
The 2 25Ks in England would have been a much better choice IMO
She could have won 1 of them
That's if she wasn't playing like this

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett is not playing G1 Canadian open
She is still on entry list for US Open, but there are no challengers anywhere near North America the same week as the Canadian Open
Maybe she is just going to practice, which is probably quite necessary after her disastrous run in Asia
Luckily, all the new Top 10 Players except for Townsend and Bouchard are out of her league on a good day, so another SF isn't out of the question, despite her shit form

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I'm surprised that she's not playing that G1 warmup for USO. So she travels to the States for only one tournament.

there's a 25K the week after she might play
BTW, I have found Anett's doppelganger


Her and Carina look quite similar
They could almost be sisters

Re: Anett Kontaveit

^I was actually thinking the same when I saw the pic, I even googled her to see more pics. However, it seems to be only that one pic, Witthöft looks different on other photos.

Thanks for finding out
It's such a shame that she has had to drop down to this level, but I am happy she did
Let's hope she can win here as the field is not particularly strong
She basically needs to win if she wants to be DA into 25s
Anyway, a title would be nice
I hope that she can finally make a 25K Semis

It seems that Anett's defeator Genie is doing well

The Withdraw Deadline has been reached in Anett's 10K in Mexico and it has to be the weakest 10K I have ever seen that has not been in Africa
There are now unranked players in the MD and even though before there were some dangerous juniors like Vickery, now there is only Zacarias who is 4th seeded and Fanning. She is top seeded and I have heard of nobody else

I hope she plays doubles as I am quite sure she would get in, but more importantly, if she doesn't win, shit will go down

Here is the list

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Surprising decision to play that 10k instead of G1 in Canada. Or actually not, as she really needs to get some more points to be able to play stronger tournaments. She is now the first seed in Mexico with a big pressure to win this event.

I wonder what she will decide about the next year - does she continue playing junior slams or leave the junior tour behind. I guess she could still benefit of playing at least the ones in Europe, although possible losses to younger players might do some damage on the mental side.

True but she has been improving drastically on the Junior Tour
Except for her unfortunate loss to Bouchard, she hasn't lost early in any important tournaments IMO
She doesn't seem to care about G1s and lower GA's

Re: Anett Kontaveit

If Anett wins, which I am going to go out on a limb and say she will, she will move up to around 435. Anett will be 3rd seeded.
My reasoning for Anett winning is that she has played well in America before (I know it was end of year, but I am hoping she will still cope ) and she will be able to work her way into the tournament (no top 1000 player before QF, no Zacarias until final due to her ranking drop , meaning Ferris or Kukharchuk, who have achieved nothing except the Russian who lives in America who beat nobodies to make the QFs of an easy 50K and the American winning an easy 10K in July )

BTW, is Anett smart?? She has come across as articulate in her interviews but does she do well at school???

She may be able to play doubles with friend and former partner Ayaka Okuno

EDIT: Turns out Kukharchuk is lefty and bith girls play at college level Neither seem to be amazing or particularly intimidating
