Yeah that was really random

Btw, it seems to me that Estonian media is hyping Anett a bit too much using the words like "wunderkind" etc. Also not a single news site mentioned her losses in Asia
I guess that's the problem of a small country - we have don't have that many world-class athletes and so as soon as someone young and promising appears and starts producing decent results, then they are hyped to the extreme.

There are always articles about her on ERR
Anyway, I hope she takes it as a good thing... No tournaments this week, but maybe the next week

It could have been Anett
Anyway, I am going away so I will be posting less, but that will please many of you
I get to go on tour like Anett now that holiday tournaments have begun

Not only losses in Asia.

I can´t decide, if they are clueless and only republish stuff that tennis federation sends to them or they indeed try to "protect" her wunderkind image.

This wunderkind talk started as soon she won Estonian Championships for the first time. Luckily, Anett and her team are ignoring this.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Talented juniors really shouldn't lose to journeywomen. Even though Majeric has found some form lately.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Of course, top seed

But Anett is in good form and I believe she will win

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Great Anett
After the first, she obviously gained confidence and ran away with it
I really hope she can go deep here, and she really has the draw too
Sorry for being kinda inactive, but I am in Europe and this was the first time I could get to the computer
The Estonians are doing really well lately

Re: Anett Kontaveit

That's a good win. She was down with a break in the first set but managed to broke back and since then she improved her game and the result was NID

I don't know if there is a stream or livescore. Anett tells us in facebook how she played

Re: Anett Kontaveit

It's great that Anett gives us some updates through Facebook. There doesn't seem to be any sort of livescore unfortunately.

Btw, what kind of tournaments are you playing, Chingching?

Re: Anett Kontaveit

i wrote an article on anett recently. there's nothing in it that fans don't already know, but i thought i'd post a link here and people who want to can have a look at it. also, the website is pretty cool if you're into challengers and lesser-known players.
