Re: Anett Kontaveit

There was no question who was the best team, Anett and Emily gave no chance to other teams. Hopefully they play doubles together at USO, too.

Re: Anett Kontaveit

I was surprised at how good Emily appeared to be as a doubles player, as Anett is not known as the doubles genius
Emily lost second round in Singles to an unranked player, yet she was obviously instrumental in their tournament win, as the team they beat in the final were quite highly ranked
I really think they have a shot at a quarters or a semi at the US Open because of Anett's higher ranking perhaps getting them a seed
I really hope she can beat Rodriguez, and I don't see how she won't
The bet365 odds for the final are 1.18-4.50, pretty good odds IMO

Anett actually has enough Doubles Points now to be Top 980 but because she has only played 2 tourneys she doesn't have a ranking. I hope that she can play a 3rd as if she could just get a ranking then she could start to play doubles at 25Ks

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Nice! Btw now her record in ITF finals is 5-0, 6-0 if we count doubles as well. Yes, they are all 10k-s, but still a very good achievement I think, it shows that she is mentally strong.

I hope she won't be stuck at 10ks, and the next ITFs will be something higher.

Nicely done, hope this gives her confidence and she has a good USO.
Please start doing well in higher tournaments too.

Anett
It's good that she finished it off
Hopefully she can take this into the US Open
The Facebook page of the tournament said she recorded a bagel, 6-1 6-0

I think that she can do very well at the US Open in Singles and Doubles and another SF is very much within her reach
I hope that the tournaments Facebook page will upload photos of her, rather than everybody else

Also, if you have an Instagram account, follow Anett as she uploads many pictures of herself and there are some of her with Rodriguez and the trophy

If you include doubles she is actually 6-1 (Tallinn 10K last year she was runner up )
I agree that she is mentally strong but she does seem to choke a lot within her matches
I am sure she has enough mental ability to be Top 10

Yes you are right of course, I did not remember that doubles final

I was thinking she could also try a 15k maybe? There is one in Georgia on the week of 17th of Sept. Anyway, on Thursday the lists should be out so we will see if she has entered any tournaments in that week.

That would be a great idea in terms of gaining points. She would IMO get a cheap 20 there, as I think she would win, and then she could perhaps play the 50 the week after

I know that she did badly in Beijing but I think if she got a good warm-up at the 15K she could make inroads at the 50, as I think she would make MD

She could easily collect 30 points from those 2 tourneys which would put her in the Top 375

It will be interesting to see

BTW, Anett's Facebook Likes have sky-rocketed in the last week, with over 100 people "Liking" her
I wonder what will happen if she wins US

On the tournament Facebook page there are now quite a few photos and a video of the presentation
Here's the video

And here are 2 videos of highlights from her matches, the 1st vs Ryann Foster and the 2nd vs Rodriguez


Here is the match report with scores
http://planoinformativo.com/planodep...p.php?id=45537

She seems to be hitting the ball well

EDIT: It turns out Batumi to Telavi is Hard to Clay, and given that Anett would be expected to make at least Semis, then she will have little or no time to adapt
Maybe she could do 50K Montenegro + 50K Telavi double as they are same surface. Or even 25K Dobrich with Telavi or with a 10K in Varna All I know is that she really should play a tournament in the 17th to 23 week as there are 14 tournaments, 2 75Ks, a 50K, 5 25Ks, a 15K and 5 10Ks I find ITF scheduling really weird where some weeks you only get 10Ks except for 1 25K and then some you get 2 100Ks in a row I just sense that if she plays that week she could get a lot of points

Also, unless someone below Anett gets points from above 25K level, she will be ranked 432 next week. I find it hard to believe that she won't break the Top 400 (she needs 30 points) and Top 350 is only 63 Points away, which in 4 tournaments is doable (an average of 15.75 points per tournament is above Anett's current average of 7.09, but Anett's average for this year is 8 per tournament). If she wanted to be Top 300 this year which is I guess possible but IMO highly unlikely, she will need to gain 102 points, which would be impossible without a 25K title. Although, I think Anett could win a weaker 25K this year. I really hope she goes to Nigeria and steals Donna's points

Decided to skip training in IMG because of Storm Isaac and arrived in New York late last night. I love the Big Apple!
I didn't know she trained at IMG
Anyway, I hope that she gets a good few days of practice in New York. She is only one of a few who will actually get a lot of time in NYC before the Open Let's hope she doesn't do what happened last year

Also, here is an article about the 7 players who won Singles + Doubles last week on the Pro Circuit (2 Estonains )
Anett has the cover picture
Sorribes Tormo also win both in Italian 10K, so she is one for the future
Here is the link

Re: Anett Kontaveit

Anett is listed for Yoshkar-Ola (1st priority), Saint Malo and Shymkent (gosh, these names ) for the week of 17th. I think it's a great first choice as she might even get to the MD - there are so few first preferences on the list at the moment. Btw, Yoshkar-Ola is the capital of Mari El Republic and their original language is Mari - also a Finno-Ugric language.

I saw Anett's photo on the main page of the ITF website, the featured article is here: http://itftennis.com/procircuit/news...e-winners.aspx
Oh, chingching was already faster and mentioned this
