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