Any player who beats a top 50 player will smash a player ranked 500 no matter how they are playing. and Van Riet is a puddler so anett will just walk all over her. I dont see her losing this tournament. I understand why she played it but she really shouldnt have played this tournament. If she wins this tournament she will have lost 2 professional matches in estonia and 1 at RAM. She will be undefeated at RAM indoor
Even, if she wins next week, she would be barely inside top 600. Last year, Chiasso was one of the strongest 25k tournaments, with a MD cut of #206. No reason to think it would be much lower this year.
And the junior exempt is not exactly the same as wildcard.
Even so, if she played like she did at fed cup she would be able to win Chiasso or at least make the final if she had a good draw.
Thank you chingching, today is very important day.
Anett def Vika 6:3, 2:6, 6:4.
I know. I had almost forgotten when my relatives told me. It turns out that today I got blood sausage!!!!!!!! Its not easy to find in Australia
We sung the national anthem with all my estonian relatives in australia and it was really nice to be so happy and finally remember a positive thing about our past.
Anyway, nice to know that Anett won on independence day. Should make the final. Today was slightly worrying but a wins a win
I went to watch it today. There was quite a lot of people imo (a lot means about 30), and it was clear they weren't there randomly, because as soon as the match was over pretty much everyone left.
It was a long match, going on about 2.5 hours or so. At first I thought this match doesn't last very long. Golubic's serve wasn't as powerful, so maybe Anett tried to do too much returning it, resulting in quite a few errors. 2nd set was very erratic from Anett altogether, at some point it felt she was bashing in frustration, making wild errors. And she was actually down 0*-5, I was pretty sure she'd get bagelled because she had lost her last service game before that to love. 3rd set began with breaking Golubic's serve, and she didn't give the lead away anymore.
As they played, Katarzyna Piter vs Anna Zaja also started. As little as I watched them, Zaja left me with a better impression, but maybe she got too erratic in the 2nd and 3rd set, idk. Also Vinogradova wasn't very amused after her loss.
Thanks for the report, its nice that someone went. Are you going today? Anyway, lets hope anett has a better match against eva. I thought Vika would be easy but she seems to be better than I thought. Again, thanks for the live update
