Only year end ranking counts for the junior exempt program.

Juniors ranked 6-10 in the year end rankings, can enter 3 25k main draws in the following year, regardless of their WTA ranking. Junior exempts are like wild-cards in that sense. Of course, she is allowed to play more, if her ranking will be good enough.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

So do you think that she will play the Tallinn 10K tournaments, or not waste her time on 10ks. I think it's just a waste of 2 tournaments. She should use her 12 tournaments wisely, focusing on 25ks and maybe a few 50ks, maybe even a wta at bastad or copenhagen (if she gets a wildcard. Her ranking is high enough to get into baku and tashkent right now!

EDIT: Actually, with her current ranking (568) she could make qualifying into the following tournaments using their last direct acceptances from the 2011 tournament (there are no new tournaments for 2012/tournaments form 2011 being cut out):
Auckland
Hobart
Fes (the qualifying list hasn't been released)
Budapest
Baku
Quebec City
Tashkent (they put in extra wcs for the people who didn't come)

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I don't think she'll try to play WTA events yet. But maybe it depends on how her Fed Cup matches will go (it should be a bit easier in the zonal groups, than playing against top 50)
I think she'll play those two Tallinn tournaments, and then probably try more on the 25k (or higher).

Re: Anett Kontaveit

That should be 2 tournament wins, if she uses the home crowd, has a good off season and continues to perform well on the pro-circuit. Although the tallinn tournaments always draw a good field. The challenger in 2010 had anne keothavong, who at the time was 140 in the rankings. Does anyone know if they offer hospitatility or something, because i know that some futures give hospitality even if it is not in the factsheet.

Fed Cup should be great. It's right at her current level. As the second player, there will be no one in the top 100 (except poland, netherlands, great britain and sweden [Great britain is the only one able to get in Estonia's pool]) so she may even be able to record some wins. Hopefully the juniors Aussie Open should give her some momentum.

It's such a shame that fed cup is in israel, cause it would have been great to play some tournaments in the Australian Autumn 25K swing (Launceston, Sydney, Mildura, Bundaberg etc.). Many of the juniors like to play Burnie (Saisai Zheng and Eugenie Bouchard played last years final and Irina Khromacheva made quarters). She could have gotten some great match experience.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

The one in 2010 was a 25k I doubt Keothavong would have came if it was 10k.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I know. That's why I said Challenger

I think that she should try and use the 25k wildcards as quickly as possible so that her ranking doesn't end up getting high enough not to need them later in the year. That would be a waste. Also, let's say she does win both Tallinn tournaments, then she will get 24 ranking points. If she made the semi finals of one 25k, she would have the same amount of ranking points.
Given that all her tournaments count and she is only allowed to play 12, I really think she should be avoiding 10ks, unless she gets into really bad form. Maybe she could play doubles in Tallinn and not singles, given that often she doesn't play doubles when she's on the road. A 10k win in doubles would help her ranking unlike 10k in singles

Ah, okay.

Playing Tallinn might have something to do with a sponsor. Tallink supported those tournaments, and is also Anett's sponsor.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Does Anett get money or is it just support, because I know that Kanepi, Zopp and Ivanov get payed. (Kanepi=125k, Zopp=40k, Ivanov=12k)

I doubt Kaia will play Fed Cup this year

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Why wouldn't she? She said herself she loves playing it and there is still some good competition. On the other hand, it will test ever loyal Caro Wozniacki whether she will play Eur/Afr G II. Without her, Denmark has 2 ranked players. They will get smashed and relegated to Group 3. There are some decent teams in Group 2. E.g. Georgia, Latvia and Turkey

Anett was playing in Florida at the time and could´t be there Tallink will definitely continue to support her financially.

Off-topic. I thought you were translating those articles through Google. How come you speak Estonian?
I am like Mia Nicole Eklund My father is Estonian, my mother is Dutch and I live in Australia. My parents thought they should teach me these languages. Also, Sabine Lisicki is my cousin.

My Estonian speaking isn't great because I am still learning but I can basically read anything and my writing's pretty good (except my spelling ). English is very different to Estonian (as you guys obviously know) whereas Dutch is kinda similar to English, so my Dutch is tonnes better. The reason why I like Estonian stuff is because of course one of my parents is Estonian but also because when I went to the Australian Open I saw Kaia Kanepi play Alicia Molik and I preffered Kaia. So I convinced my parents to sit with the mob of Estonian fans so I could cheer for Kaia without it looking weird. That's when Estonian tennis came into my life!
