Re: Estonian Tennis

Mattias is having a wonderful week and is in the Final of the G2 in Prague Also made the Doubles SF with Kenneth Since European Summer Cups and the Euro Champs Gold, he has improved massively It's great to see he is finally catching up with Kenneth

It seems he and Kristofer have a website now and they have their schedule They will be playing the 18U Eddie Herr and Orange Bowl which is great but aside from that their schedule is very limited. Hopefully they add tournaments. They seem caught up in school though, which is good

Valeria plays next week in Egypt, so hopefully she can continue the improvement seen by the other Estonians this summer

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

Re: Estonian Tennis

Lera made R2 of a G2 in Egypt and made SFs in Doubles
Birgit made QFs in a G5 in Latvia
Maileen made R2 for the 1st time
Also, Kristofer Siimar won the G5 in Latvia Obviously he improves in tandem with Mattias

Re: Estonian Tennis

Estonian Boys were seeded 7th at Davis Cup Unfortunately with a tight loss to Italy and then a loss vs Korea they can no longer progress However they should beat Mexico Also nice to see an article about the Siimar twins exclusively on ITF There are tonnes of mistakes though, such as saying they're identical Also nice to see them playing GA Japan with some other Estonians

In a sense it's sad that Kenneth isn't joining them as they would have had a good shot but it is more fair for Martin Why does Kenneth never play Summer Cups?

I wonder how much attention, if any, her match versus Ingrid would have gotten.
Why would it get any? What is so great about Ingrid anyway, ranked lower than Anett was 2 years earlier...

It's a shame she did so badly after I went to sleep The games I saw that she lost were very close

Re: Eva Paalma

Couple of years ago there were several articles about her and her Estonian connection in the local media. When there was a lot of buzz about her playing against the bigger boys and John McEnroe praised her as the real phenom.

Is she Estonian :bow down:

She must only be half though... It is so sad to see all these Estonian talents not represent Estonia Still another thread to pollute with Propaganda If only she and Becca were Estonian There are tonnes of successful Estonians in America it seems.

What are these articles and what are her connections? Does she actually speak Estonian? That would have been cool if Eva managed to get through

EDIT: OK so it's her grandmother The only Ingrid Neel I found on Facebook loves Tennis, Estonia, Anett Kontaveit () and Arvo Pärt But she's an old woman...

Re: Eva Paalma

The original Ingrid Neel (her granny) was three years old when they escaped from Estonia in 1944. She and her sister have spent many summers in Saaremaa and have donated significant sums for the charities there. And no, already her sons don't speak Estonian.

Oh she was the old woman with the Facebook and LinkedIn profiles Sounds like a wonderful woman
Did she donate before Independence as I have been to Saaremaa and they have perfectly good health services now

Why did they escape?

Why did they escape?
After 1991. And mostly in educational sector. Her sister Dagmar even worked as a teacher in Kuressaare.

Same reason why 80,000 Estonians escaped that year and as much or more tried to escape. One year of the communist rule was enough and they did not want to experience it again. Especially as they already had relatives sent to Siberia.

Quote:
Ingridi Kuressaare juurte kohta märkis nimekaimust vanaema, et 1944. aastal põgenes nende perekond, nagu paljud teisedki saarlased, Eestist. “Põgenesime oma kodust nendesamade riietega, mis meil seljas olid, et meie saatus ei oleks sama, mis oli meie sugulastel, keda küüditati Siberisse.”
