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:lol:), 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.

Title #4:D

Anett Kontaveit def. Katarzyna Piter 75 64

I read that she needed 6 MPs to seal the deal:eek: In 1st set she lead 5-2 40:0, but then it got to 5 all. In 2nd set she was down 2-4, but was able to win 4 games in a row from there.

Well done!:worship:

So, her next tournament is in Bath in three weeks. The initial entry list should be available by Friday, so we can get a clue of how tough it will be.

chingching
Feb 27th, 2012, 12:40 PM
The british ones are normally quite tough but hopefully most are in America. She should be the equivalent of seeded for qualifying. I think that she will definately win rabat if she plays well (she says she played badly in Tallinn which makes sense given her results but in the hihlights she was playing well) and Bath and quarters or semi showing could be nice. Chiasso will be a challenge but if she plays like in Fed Cup, she is as good as a top 100 player. I hope she plays Bastad as it is on clay, it is a weak field and she should have learnt from Timea Babos that if you have confidence, you can go a long way

This may not be helpful to everyone but I was wondering if we could speak a bit more Estonian in this thread as many would understand it better and I want to work on my estonian :)

muusa
Mar 1st, 2012, 08:31 PM
So the list is out, seems quite tough. Anett would even be nowhere near the qualifying cut, more like alternative no 100. The last main draw spot is 214 (compared to 288 in Moscow for example) and for qualifying 286 (vs 403). :unsure: Of course this list is not final, but looking at the priorities, there will probably be a number of withdrawals from Moscow, but likely not so many from Bath.

Anyway, let's hope Anett won't have the worst draw and can get at least some wins :)

chingching
Mar 1st, 2012, 08:33 PM
As I like to say, is she play like she did at Fed Cup and the maindraw cut off gets down to about 250, she has a legitimate chance

chingching
Mar 1st, 2012, 08:36 PM
But you have to remember that some fo the good players will drop out because their are other good players. E.g. Nastassya Burnett. A 50k winner and a girl who beat Hradecka isnt going to play 25s if theres a risk shell lose 1st round

This field remains ridicuolusly strong. Only 3 maindraw withdrawals!!!!
If they keep this up the cut off will be well inside the top 300 (except of course anett)

chingching
Mar 5th, 2012, 11:42 AM
If you look at Itf La Marsa, this field will be similar to tunis's one. In terms of preferences, the last main draw acceptance Federica di Sarra of Italy ranked 451. If Tunis is like this, then Anett has a good cance to go deep in the draw. I still think she should've played Fes. She could have made a quarter final :)

muusa
Mar 6th, 2012, 10:47 AM
Well, looks like there have been some withdrawals from Bath, currently the cut for main draw is 258 and for qualifying 375. Today is the last day for withdrawing, so I suppose tomorrow this list will be modified a bit more..

chingching
Mar 6th, 2012, 11:39 AM
Hopefully. This field is still very strong though. Anett has a legitimate chance now though

chingching

Anett has a good chance now because with qualies and wildcards the lowest qualifier would be despina at 376

In Moscow 25k the main draw cut seems to be 605 :eek: Why oh why didn't Anett sign up there instead of Bath. Maybe because of the surface? Anyway, kind of ridiculous that the points given for both of these tournaments are exactly the same. :lol:

chingching
Mar 8th, 2012, 07:42 AM
I know. I am personally against tournament whoring but for Juniors I think its acceptable. When you can only play 12 tourneys a year, you cant risk getting a bad draw or not playing well. If Anett wants competitive match play, then do it at higehr level challengers or wta, not chaallengers. Whats the point ion taking a risk in losing whn even if you win you dont get huge amount of ranking points?? Even La MArsa would have been better

Mar 9th, 2012, 09:03 AM
I seriously doubt she's gonna try WTA this year. Looks like she wants to take it very slowly. Unless maybe she does really really well in those challengers, but even then I think no. After Tallinn she was talking about "having to return to 10k if she does not succeed in 25k-s".

Returning to 10ks should be a last resort as she can basically win everyone she plays. Its a good idea to take it slow, she is only 16!!!
But I do think if she was the ambitious type that a WTA international Quarterfinal or a high level challenger semi would be doable and a great result. If only Estonia had a challenger :(

chingching
Mar 9th, 2012, 12:11 PM
Can anyone think of a calender after these tournaments???
For example, lets say she makes semis bath, wins tunis and quarters chiasso. Her rankin will be top 400. Do you think she will play some more 25s?? If so, which ones. Or will she consider 50s??

agreed
and i am not criticising lauren, she is a great persona and has a really good game but the god have blessed anett with a bigger physique so from a younger age hopefully she can match it with the big ones. And lauren has an easy second round which is great to see :)

chingching
Mar 16th, 2012, 02:10 AM
The tournament has now weakened considerably. There will be some unranked players in qualifying and the last direct acceptance is below 300. Anett has a great chance now. A semi or final is do able if she can replicate fed cup form. Is it just me or does anett not play as well at home (this years tallinn 10k, fed cup??)

Anett's draw in Bath :rolleyes:

Alize LIM (FRA)

Her first match is probably on Wednesday.

chingching
Mar 19th, 2012, 09:51 PM
A very good draw for anett if she can get past elitsa. If she can get past the second round (i dont see her losing first round if she can gain any type of good form), the semi finals is very much possible

Tennisfan06
Mar 19th, 2012, 11:42 PM
Not the worst draw IMO. Lim has been out of form lately, hopefully Anett beats her :)

chingching
Mar 20th, 2012, 11:07 AM
If anett can get past elitsa (who actually also isnt in good form, lost first round KL to rogowska 60 64!!) then i dont see why she cant make the semis or even win the whole thing. In quarters she has Stanciute who is really bad then she has either beck or glushko in semis. I dont see her losing a match if she beats kostova, cause she will need to play quality tennis to get past kostova, meaning she can beat the others. muusa was right about her match being on wednseday.

Anett obviously wanted a challenge. If she had played 25K Moscow, she would have almost definately won. Even la MArsa. But given her form here, I see no reason why she shouldnt be top 100 by er 18th birthday :)

Final between Konta and Kontaveit would be funny :)
Hopefully Anett can get to semis at least, 24 points would already be a very good achievement from this tournament - it's like defending two 10k wins.

Also good prize money for 1 week (not as muchn as winning 2 10ks but less accomodation)
She should own the La Marsa field :)

I have no idea where this came from. Diana has been so far out of form (*lost to clothilde de bernadi, a girl who anett beat 1 and 3, 64 60. she also lost in straight sets to 14 year old Belinda Bencic)

When I saw that Anett lost first set 60, I thought they might have gotten the scorecards confused
Anyway, such a shame. This will ruin her confidence, losing to a player of similar rank so convincingly

Kulichkova whored up points at abierto jiuvenil (no qualies for a GA :tape:) as did mcphilips but mcphilips also megawhored the G1s afterwards and this years Brazil G2s. I find it funny how many good tournaments are in America (North and South) given the amount of good players from the region.

She seems to intentionally pick the events with strong fields :confused: She played Bath, where she could have played La Marsa (well yes, her Bath draw turned out to be very good in the end). She plays Tunis in the week where it is one of the two 25k-s in the world (and close to Europe, the other one is in South-America), why not Uzbekistan or sth a week before? Then she plays Chiasso which will probably be as packed also.

I know that in the end it doesn't matter as she should be able to beat those top 200 players anyway if she wants to be a top 100-200 player, but currently she just needs some more points quickly to even get to those future 25k events directly when the JE-s are used up.

For example Donna Vekic played some 25k-s in Nigeria last year and one in India this year, got a lot of points using the advantage of a bit weaker fields and now she is almost top 300.

Another good win for Anett, really happy for her! But the next opponent is quite tough, Annika Beck has played in three 25k finals this year already and the few losses have been to top 200 players only.
Anyway, now Anett's ranking goes up to 485 or so and by the end of April she has a realistic chance to aim for top 400 if she gets at least some wins in Tunis and Chiasso.

muusa
Apr 9th, 2012, 01:45 PM
So Anett lost after her serve totally disappeared. Well, I actually did not believe she'd win anyway, but after that first set my hopes went up of course. Too bad about the bagel though, that is now her second during a short period of time :(

Next up Tunis and onto clay. Interesting to see what she can produce there.

Apr 9th, 2012, 01:56 PM
Anett lost 46 63 60. She was leading 64 33 Game point when everything fell apart (she got nroken the last 7 service games of the match :tape:)

First, Dan Doe, I did like Sibiu. It was a beautiful eritage town, my second favourite place in Romania behind Sinaia, a ski resort near Brasov. It was much nicer than Arad and timisiora was nice but not as nice. Second, I think that Anett has to think of a better schedule after her loss to Annika today. I think its great that she is trying the big stae as she is more than capable but I think she has to cut out what shes doing with playingg ridiculously hard 25ks. She can get the seame experience playing easier WTAs or 50-100ks. I mean if she makes QF at tunis and chiasso that would be an achievement, and she would only gain 28 ranking points and about 1000 in cash. if she played for example Bastad and Baku, she could make the maindraw and maybe win a round, putting her ranking points at around 50 and prize money at around 3000. I think its good she want to play hard opponents, it does nothing but good, but if you are only allowed 12 a year, you should try and make the most out of them you can.

A schedule for example could be:
Australia G1
Australian Open
Fed Cup
10K Tallinn
25K Bath
WTA Copenhagen
25K Tunis
25K Chiasso
Trofeo Bonfiglio
French Open
25K Kristinehamm
25K Ystad
Wimbledon
WTA Bastad
WTA Baku

Thats a start and if she played those tournaments she could easily be top 250 by the end of the year. n Baku, a WTA 2nd round or QF is almost on the cards given last years draw and you cant really expect this years to be any better

Depends on whether she will get any wildcards, but I guess why not. Bastad in July could be an option..? At first I did not believe she'd play any this year, but after this successful debut I'd rather think she will try if given a chance.

But does anyone know how many wildcards could she theoretically get/use during one year? Was it limited to 2-3 or sth like that?

Geographically I guess Copenhagen in Denmark and Bastad in Sweden are the closest WTA events to Estonia. Maybe Swedes will give her a WC:shrug:

According to 2012 WTA rulebook, she is allowed to accept 4 wildards into ITF or WTA events (JE not included)
Theoretically, she could play 3 more WTAs and play Baku with qualifyin as she would make maindraw

So she isnt just playing Trofeo GA?? Thats good. She needs a good seeding for Roland Garros
If she is top 8 seed, and draws Danilina ion quarters, she might be able to win!!!

First, Dan Doe, I did like Sibiu. It was a beautiful eritage town, my second favourite place in Romania behind Sinaia, a ski resort near Brasov. It was much nicer than Arad and Timisoara was nice but not as nice.

Well, I'm from Brasov :spit:

Just a comment her on Diana Marcinkevica, how badly must anett have played to have lost so badly!!!! Diana just lost 2nd round of a 10k in coratia to someone just inside the top 800 in straight sets. She also lost to belinda bencic, a swiss junior this year in straight sets and she lost to clothile de bernardi in amiens 60 64 who anett beat 1 and 3 in stockholm. That loss simply puzzles me.

Don't underestimate Belinda:mad: Her win over Marcinkevica wasn't so shocking. She won 6-1 6-3 against another top 400 player just 2 days ago.
Anett surely had some unknown issues, otherwise she couldn't have lost so bad against Diana.

So she isnt just playing Trofeo GA?? Thats good. She needs a good seeding for Roland Garros
If she is top 8 seed, and draws Danilina ion quarters, she might be able to win!!!

Well, there is some tough competition. Khromacheva, Putintseva, Bouchard, Barty and Jabeur are all great claycourt players. Townsand and Min are not, but...well, they shouldn't be underestimated. No other player than those should be a threat for Anett. So let's see who's playing RG and who's not.

I doubt Jabeur and Min are playing, maybe Barty also not as she even didn't play junior AO on her home ground (still a major puzzle for me why). As for the rest, they probably do play, but yea, we have to wait.. Of them Anett has never beaten Khromacheva and Townsend.

Anett musnt like the left handers. She beat Barty at French Open though and loves clay (beat Putintseva and Bouchard on clay at orange bowl)
Taylor I dont think can beat Anett in clay cause Outdoor hard is probably anetts 3rd best surface (behind indoor hard and clay) whereas its taylors best. Grace Min has given up on juniors

The field in Tunis is soooo much weaker now (no alternates!!!!)
A Quarter Final or Semi Final is a very achievable result here, if she plays like she did in copenhagen

If Anett plays Baku, she could almost make a quarter final!!

Anetts chiasso field released tomorrow!!!!!!!!!
Hopefully weaker than last years
I think that if she can get 60 points approximately (winner in tunis and quarters in chiasso or semis in chiasso finals in tunis) that would be a good result. I have thought of a potentially good schedule (i hope she reads and chooses this one ;):
1. 25K Tunis
2. 25K Chiasso
3. Week Off
4. G1 Italy
5. GA Italy
6. Week Off
7. French Open
8. Week Off
9. 25K Kristinehamm
10. Week Off/G1 Roehampton
11. Wimbledon
12. Week Off
13. WTA Bastad
14. WTA Baku

I know its quite packed but I belive that it gets the most out of the tournaments

My reasoning:
1 + 2: I wouldnt have put these but shes already committed
3 + 4 + 5: She can head to Italy and play some matches to get used to teh flow of juniors again and get her ranking up
6 + 7: She could play Astrid Bowl in week 6 but 6 tournaments in 7 weeks is hard work especially if your reaching the last few days of every one. Plus, the ranking points for this tournament dont count for French Open Seedings. French Open is a good choice and if she can get around 1000 Points alltogether from these junior events (including doubles) she might get more junior exempts for next year, if she needs them
8 + 9: It would be nice to play an easier 25K which it wwill be because all the players in the top 220 will be a wimbly qualies and she should get into maindraw
10: I think she should have a week off and practice for wimbledon instead of going from clay to grass in potentially a day, especially when she hasnt had much experience on grass. It has worked for champions like sharapova and willimas in the past
11: Wimbledon juniors may be her last slam
12: Week off for training
13 + 14: Weaker Wtas which she can play to get some more experience. A WC may be necessary for Bastad but I highly doubt it for Baku. She has a good chance of making some Maindraws and except for the quick change of surface, these tournaments would be perfect. To add to the normal weakness of these tournaments, they also collide with the US hardcourt swing this year due to olympics, meaning they will be even weaker

Do they give an appearance fee to everyone or give them hospitality in a 5 star hotel???

The WTA really have to redo the points system. How is it fair that Anett would have gotten more points for winning a 10K than for making FQR at a WTA. Her, Tsurenko and all the other FQR makers would easily win 10s, maybe even 25s

Anyway, after Tunis and Chiasso, her ranking will be high enough to make 25ks on their own!!!

chingching
Apr 16th, 2012, 02:17 PM
There have been some withdrawels from Chiasso. It is unlikely this years field will be as strong as last years. Anyway, it is still going to be very difficult for Anett.
No one from Tunis will withdraw from now, so the field is basically set except for people who may withdraw the day before or something. Anyway, Anett should try and move onto higher money events. She has already proven shes capable of beating higher ranked opponents.

Something I just realised was that there are a few walking byes in Chiasso: Bremond (hasnt won a match except in a 10K), pivovarova, buzarnescu doesnt seem to be on top of her game etc. So if Anett for example can get a draw like:
Savchuk
Qualifier
Bremond
Putintseva
Schoofs
Robson

She has a shot at causing a rattle given these players are not necessarily claycourt specialists (robson, gronert)

Apr 18th, 2012, 07:01 AM
Translation from NashaMasha (Russia):
Chubby-headed lover of moaning and shrieking on court(her coach considers that it helps her focus on shots)has long been in mind for the young talents' hunters. It is tempting to draw parallels with Kiai Kanepi (girls are similar in constitution)but young Annette has less pace and power in her attack , and sometimes she has too lazy footwork. But she has a rare quality for juniors - the ability to win, especially when she is not playing really well,that's why she has so few random losses in the junior tour.And at the last Orange Bowl, she passed straight through Indy De Vroome, Eugenie Bouchard and Putintseva.Another advantage over her peers is that Anette is hardened in combat - she has repeatedly had to meet with the elite WTA palyers in the Federation Cup. Of course she used to lose easily to Martinez Sanchez, Suarez Navarro, Pironkova or Azarenka. However this year in this team tournament she managed to defeat Wimbledon quterfinalist Tamira Paszek and №156 in the world Bibiane Schoofs

agreed
But I think the comments about Juniors is a bit floored. I know this year she has only lost to townsend but I believe that she in genreal plays better in pros then juniors. Mayeb its because she is more of the under dog or something, but I think if she played khromacheva or townsend in a 10k OR 25k SHE WOULD DO MUCH BETTER

BTW, does anyone else think that Anett could make Aussie Open qualies??? I hope she does, then I can watch her play!!!! She could also play some of the 25Ks after the tournament, if she is still playing 25s on a regular basis at that stage.

I am hoping that next year Estonia can get some better tournaments. Maybe move the 2 10Ks to the clay of Kuressaare and Tere with the men and put 1 25K at the beginning of teh year at TAM or Tere, meaning the tennis centres get 1 each, and bring some money to saaremaa.

Still, thats great!!!
Youre right about the list. IMO, the only players that can harm her are Gonzalez and Schmiedlova. Besides thaa, they are all phoneys!!!!
Anyway, she will be favourite to take this title. I was so surprised when I saw ash barty on G1 list, but whats even more surprising is that shes playing that only and not this!!!

250 points will be nice for her ranking, and she will be the first player in quite a while to old 2 GAs at the same time (was gavrilova the last???).

If she does win (sadly no dubs with indy, which shocks me cause a asked indy on facebook and she said she would be playing dubs with anett all year in juniors and maybe seniors [i wanted them to play tallinn 10K V for dubs, with anett not playing singles]) she will go up to no. 5 assuming she doesnt get any doubles points and that danilina makes trofeo bonfiglio as one of her counted tourneys

Also, you shouldn't underestimate Danilina. Yes, she's whored some points, she's not as good as her ranking suggests, but she's won Copa Gerdau after winning all the macthes in straights and she defeated some good girls this year, including Marianna zakarliuk and Danka Kovinic.

Yeah, I was chaffing, didn't mean to insult you:p

BUT...if Anett is not going to be big someday, I won't hate her, I'll hate you:oh:

:lol:
The qualies are into their last round of qualifying. The draw will come out tonight in australia, I think. I hope anett gets a qualifier but lets hope its not maryna zanevska. She is 41-3 since last october :scared:
Anyway, Anett is good on clay so hopefulyy she will be able to get some points here :)

BTW, WTF is annelyl pokras. She keeps playing tournaments in Juniors and Qualies and is losing first round in all of them. In Vic 10K qualies, she lost to some spaniard 6-0 6-0!!!!!

(Q)Ana Savic (CRO) v (Q)Maryna Zanevska (UKR)
(7)Madalina Gojnea (ROU) v (wc)Yesmine Kharrat (TUN)

(3)Vesna Dolonts (RUS) v Ines Ferrer-Suarez (ESP)
(Q)Despina Papamichail (GRE) v (Q)Sara Sorribes Tormo (ESP)
Kristina Kucova (SVK) v (Q)Raluca Olaru (ROU)
(5)Sandra Zaniewska (POL) v Lenka Wienerova (SVK)

(6)Nastassja Burnett (ITA) v (wc)Ons Jabeur (TUN)
Conny Perrin (SUI) v (Q)Audrey Bergot (FRA)
(Q)Lesley Kerkhove (NED) v (LL)Vanda Lukacs (HUN)
(4)Anna Floris (ITA) v (Q)Marina Shamayko (RUS)

(8)Leticia Costas-Moreira (ESP) v Richel Hogenkamp (NED)
Lina Stanciute (LTU) v (JE)Anett Kontaveit (EST)
Nastja Kolar (SLO) v (wc)Yosr Elmi (TUN)
(2)Arantxa Parra-Santonja (ESP) v Elena Bogdan (ROU)

It's a shame she chose not to play doubles, there are only 8 teams so she might have made a semi or a final :lol:

Anyway, these are the players in her quarters recors recently:
Lina Stanciute:
Won all her matches at fed cup (against unranked nobodies) but lost to ons jabeur 1-6 7-6(5) 6-0. perhaps had match points and choked :shrug:

Leticia Costas-Moreira:
Last played at Acapulco and had to retire against Rampre. The tournament before at Moneterrey she won a match before losing to Marossi. Her only succesful match this was a win over Edina Gallovits-Hall 6-2 6-1 :eek:

Richel Hogenkamp:
Is in the better of form between her and Moreira. Has had no great results recently except this week at civitavecchia she made the quarterfinals, defeating larriere and monticone, before losing to brazilian pereira in straight sets.

Nastja Kolar:
Has come off 2 underpar performances at fed cup. No wins of note. Has a lot of potential though

Yosr Elmi:
has never won a maindraw match. Her only win came in the firat round of a 10K qualies draw. The only way she'll get through is if Kolar and then Bogdan/Parra Santonja forfeit.

Elena Bogdan:
Has won no maindraw matches this year, but has had a lot of success in doubles, has done well in WTA qualies and has lost to good players in Maindraw mainly.

Arantxa Parra Santonja:
Hasnt't really played any singles, except a few losses to good players. Her last match was first round loss to up and comer Garbine Muguruza Blanco, 3 and 3.

I think Anett has the possibility of a Semi Final with this draw, and shouldn't be underrated :)

Anett should beat Lina Stanciute and then Moreira\Hogenkamp. But Parra Santonja is hard to be defeated on clay. Kolar shouldn't be an easy one either if she makes the quarters.

It's funny how when she was playing 10s no one cared about livescores but since Australian Open and Bath, everyone needs them :lol:
Anetts match is an hour in

Yeah, well for 10s generally there is no livescore anywhere so it was expected, whereas for 25s there usually is ;) Now it is like juniors all over again where you have to wait until the end of the day to get some final results. Oh well, we can at least follow Jürgen's match meanwhile :p

There is livescore for centre court but not for the others. Check the website often as they normally update scores more often than the ITF do :)
Is Jurgen playing? I didnt realise

EDIT: wait, Jurgen won!!!!

Good morning! How was your sleeping?:oh:
I love how almost every other user on TF (besides of me:oh:) hates you:spit:

And, to be on topic and talk about Anett, I have a question for you. You said in some other topic you never called her goat and all. How far do you think Anett will go in her career? I mean, will she be #1, top 10 or top 50 someday? Don't say you hope so, she has potential and something like that. Just give a prediction :p 'Cause I'm really gonna' hate you so bad if she doesn't accomplish your goals for her:oh:

I think she has a chance to be number one but you can't tell at this age. The reason why i think she has a brighter future than Kaia is because anett has the mentality. I think she will make Top 100 by the time she's 19 and top 50 shortly after if she stays injury free. I would like to think that she would at least make Kaias current career high.

I don't really mind that people hate me anymore. I used to get upset but now I just find it comedic how bad their comebacks are :lol:

I have my opinions, I am not going to change them and I don't give a damn what anyone else thinks.

Nicely said. :) If people want to hate then we could not do anything. Anett, nice win in first round, keep it up in next matches too.
