Btw, Yoshkar-Ola is the capital of Mari El Republic and their original language is Mari - also a Finno-Ugric language.

I saw Anett's photo on the main page of the ITF website, the featured article is here: http://itftennis.com/procircuit/news...e-winners.aspx
Oh, chingching was already faster and mentioned this

I am happy she is trying weaker 25Ks (one this year in Moscow had Kudermetova make the final )
I hope she can do well

Re: Anett Kontaveit

When will the USO draw be out? Aren't they already playing some of the first round matches tomorrow?
I don't want Anett to lose to the eventual slam winner 4th time in a row this year

IK
I thought the draws will be released on the 3rd
Anywya, I hope Anett plays with Fanning, because Indy is in such a slump that I think it would be a worse choice

Some updates on Anett's September 17th Tournaments:
Yoshkar-Ola 25K:
25th Qualifier (7th Seed MD on P1s only )

Saint Malo 25K:
67th Alternate (1st Seed Q on P1s only)

Shymkent 25K:
17th Alternate (23rd MD on P1s only)

Julia Cohen has entered in a 15K in Batumi
When was the last time a WTA Finalist (I know it was in Baku ) went and played a 15K

Anyway, some reasons for Anett's Russian 25K being really weak IMO are it is ages away from everywhere (the airport only has dodgy Russian flights to Moscow ) and because in general the Russian ones are weaker
I hope she can win it, or if not make at least Semis

Re: Anett Kontaveit

That's a difficult one
She'll easily make 2nd round and I would be surprised if she didn't make 3rd round, but Abanda/Siniakova could be tough. I still think Anett would make the QFs Townsend will be very tough but her last matches were a 3 and 1 loss to Duval and a 4 and 3 loss to Abanda, so I think that if Anett will ever beat her, it will be now Anett against Eugenie pits Anett as the obvious underdog and I expect her to lose. Although, it is sometimes hard to transition from Pros back to Juniors so an upset is not off the cards. Also 3 SFs in a row would kill her IMO If she got to the Final, I think she would beat Putintseva due to her confidence levels being up

If Anett decides to play the Australian Open, I think I will go I went this year and got to see her play in Traralgon so it will be interesting to see how she has improved

Re: Anett Kontaveit

but if, by any chance, she could make the q in any wta tour next year (i think she should at least try, cuz it will be her final year in juniors), still plenty of opportunities for me

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett/Emily have a goof first round in Akkerman/Rodriguez but then they have Andrews/Townsend
Anyway, I hope they can at least push these two
