Re: Anett Kontaveit

Oh wow, the draw does seem weak Where are all the Americans? I thought Townsend would surely be defending her title..

I don't think there's any junior GS winners in the draw, are there?

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Yeah, the first half is much easier
We can blame Putintseva for this mess

Of the Americans Kiick is here, Vickery must have pulled out in the last minute and Townsend is not given any financial support to enable this trip. And indeed, we will once again get a new slam winner.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett won 6-2 7-5
It isn't that bad a result because it is her first match and Dart has made a British 10K Final, but her stats weren't great
6/12 on Bps and 5 Doubles to 0 Aces
She will have to improve for her match against Danilina but I think after next match she will be ready
I wonder how she's liking the new racket
Also, I wonder who she's playing Doubles with
Maybe Emily

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Re: Anett Kontaveit

A bit too close, but it is only the first match after a long break, so overall ok I guess. Of the other main contenders Konjuh lost the same amount of games and Lottner was in big difficulties. However, her next opponent Vajdova only lost 4 games

Re: Anett Kontaveit

She usually starts slow in those junior tournaments, but improves with every match.
She is playing doubles with Emily again, first opponents are 4th seeded Dunne/Makarova. Townsend is not there so they have a good chance at winning if they play as good as they did last year.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Says she felt a bit insecure and that it takes time getting used to playing in the wind and heat again.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

It turns out Ohtuleht found out about the bra
There was a photo of her opponent but not of her on the AO website
I think she should be OK and I think her and Emily would be favourites to win against Dunne/Makarova, even the tournament
It would be great if she could win Singles and Doubles

Here are some pics of Anett from Zimbio




I like Anett in that outfit

BTW, they have re-evaluated the ranking points system

Here is it:
Regular GA tournament
Round 32 Loser = 30 points
Round 16 Loser = 50 points
Quaterfinals = 80 points
Semifinals = 120 points
Runner-up = 180 points
Winner = 250 points

Super GA tournaments (Italian Open, Orange Bowl, Youth Olympics)
Round 32 loser = 30 points
Round 16 loser = 62.5 points
Quarterfinals = 100 points
Semifinals = 165 points
Runner-up = 225 points
Winner = 312.5 points

Grand Slams
Round 32 loser = 30 points
Round 16 loser = 75 points
Quarterfinals = 120 points
Semifinals = 180 points
Runner-up = 270 points
Winner = 375 points

If only they had done it last year she would be much higher ranked

Finally, from her facebook:

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I saw Anett today, she has a good solid game, she can make the top 100 no doubt just needs to be more consistent, from what I saw she was just bossing Dart around everywhere. dart was so useless

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I thought that they solved the issue with Townsend after the drama it caused at USO last year. Really a shame, they won't let #1 junior to defend her title

Anett looks in better physical shape judging by the pictures

Yeah, they complained that it would only be 1 tournament, but realistically it could be between 1 and 9, if she played the full Australian Open swing with Burnie, Launceston, Sydney, Sydney, Mildura, Bundaberg and Ipswich

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Defeated Vajdova 76(6) 60. Lost in doubles though. Next up is Danilina as expected.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I am not too worried about Danilina after she struggled
I know Loeb is under ranked but still
Also not worried about Lottner and Siniakova
They so should have won Doubles
The leads they had
She did well to save SP in First Set with Ace
I think being out of Doubles will help her Singles but I really thought they had a shot at the Doubles title
I don't know exactly how they lost as I expect Anett to beat both these girls losing minimal games and Emily is a good Doubles player
