I know. But Australia is multi-cultural. Even though there is no competitor to English, it is nice to be able to speak to a tourist (we have a lot of those) in their language. There are quite a few Dutch people in Australia but I only know of one Estonian and he came here when he was 2 so even though he speaks Estonian he is not really Estonian.
Anett is 4 seed for Loy Yang Traralon. If she gets a good draw she may make the final or even win. I think she has a genuine shot at the Australian Open crown. I think by the end of 2012 she should be between 200 and 300, be top 5 juniors and then I think she should focus on the professional events. She could potentially be top 100 before her 18th birthday!
Kromacheva has pulled out of Traralgon. Anett will probably still remain seed 4 as Putintseva gets a higher seed because of her WTA ranking? We also don't know if Mestach is really playing...
Anett has 250 points to defend in March from the Asian tour. Most likely she is not playing it this year so she needs some good results from Australia to remain in top 10.
Anett could be 2nd seed as An Sophie is going to lose tonnes of ranking points because of the south american circuit. An sophie will have 617.5 ranking points going into loy yang but anett will have 772.5. Even if Anett loses first round in singles and doubles at both loy yang and australian open, she will probably be ranked number 5 behind khromacheva, barty, bouchard and min. There is a decent chance that she will be top 3 if she performs well at the two tournaments
