Nice write up on ETL website I would have liked to have watched it and it would have been interesting to see Eva really push it close
In hindsight this actually seems like quite a good idea Anett doesn't seem to like Red Clay as much as other surfaces but she has had good results in the past and she has only played 1 tournament this year on it so hopefully she can do well
Nice interview Everything she says is repeated about 5 times by everyone else
She said nice things about Peetar but didn't hint at a future coach which is a little worrying Her Estonian flag medal and nail polish was really cute
Something I found funny from the ETL article was that she said she wanted to be around #120 at the end of the year at the start of the year So specific She really should break Top 100 if she continues to play the way she had though
Bucharest you mean
I have no idea, hopefully tomorrow yes.
Currently the red clay seems to be her worst surface in my opinion, lost too many games here. Also in RG she was really lucky to play the lower ranked opponents in the first rounds and as soon as she faced Watson she was completely trashed. Hopefully she makes it to MD in at least one of the tournaments in the coming weeks.
Btw the new entry lists are out and for now she has entered a Polish 50k (1st priority) and Astana 100k.
I am so surprised she is Seeded 5th I was sure she wouldn't even get seeded
She really should qualify IMO as all of those players are below her IMO
Hopefully Voracova isn't in the best form and Anett can have success in MD Grymalska has dipped a bit.
Won 63 61
If she manages to qualify, then the possible opponents in R1 are Lim, Kovinic, Soler-Espinosa and Begu.
Good placements She could destroy Lim, Begu I think she can beat, Kovinic would be very tough and Soler-Espinosa would be almost impossible Just the confidence of finally getting a WTA win and the points from a R16 finish would be so great for her Top 150 would follow After the 10 Points from this win Anett should move around the 160 area
These 10 points are actually 2 points because at the moment her 16th best result is 8 points.
I always forget about that I am so used to AER
Although 8 Points is nothing significant, it is nice that Anett has showed some consistency Her best is still 50 Points from 25K Wins so it's extremely consistent Many girls in the Top 100 have 1s, 2s and 5s for their 16th result And yes I know all Grand Slams count
Actually Meelis, at what ranking stage do all your GSs count?
