Disappointing, but reaching the final is already a nice result. Two semis and a final from slams this year - nobody else has had that kind of consistency. And she only lost to the eventual winners. Will she play some slams next year as well? I guess we will have to wait and see what her team decides, but she could as well play at least the European ones.
Too bad that without the Orangle Bowl points she won't be in top 10 by the end of the year. So it is quite likely that she will go and play the US tournaments in December to get the JEs for the next year. Although, depending on the results of her ITFs she might not even need the lower JEs anymore.
Anyway, next up is Yoshkar-Ola, starting on the 17th.
Happy birthday, Chingching! Too bad that you couldn't get the best present today, but Anett hopefully has a long and successful career ahead so you might get it in the years to come
I really thought she would win but Crawford obviously played better
I think her serve wasn't quite there and it really needed to be today
Anyway, whether she will play juniors next year is very debatable but we can only look forward to her next 25K in Yoshkar-Ola
I think that with this form she can go one step further
Kontaveit looked disheartened, slumping her shoulders and not chasing down balls she seemed to get to in the first set.
