The reason for the white colour on the Volume is that Volume 1 is Anett on the White portion of the Estonian flag, she's now Black and soon she will be in the Sky :inlove:

Anett will play CoCo Sheniqua (Shilin) Xu next, who beat Ankita Raina 2-6 6-4 6-2 :) Should be another easy win if she can keep playing well, although her First Round doesn't really say much :lol:

It actually is :spit: I just hope she gets to give one in her WTA career :sobbing:

Second on Court 1 tomorrow :) Hopefully she gets a good placement as a QF is on the cards for sure :)

Nice little report here from coolfish1103 :)

I then went to see Anett Kontaveit v. Naoko Eto.
The number of spectators in Center Court is about ~150. The number of spectators in Court #1 is about ~100.


So we get a blue bleacher stand but no one is allowed to sit there except camera man and coaches :eek:h:


BFCD finished practice. Guess how long she practiced? :lol:


Remember I said Wang was not good? ...but this Eto is even worse.

I don't know how she got a wild card, she couldn't return well or serve well. Most of the points she earned came from Anett spraying unforced errors into the net... so yes it was a disappointed that Anett couldn't double bagel her.


The Taiwanese that practiced with BFCD.


Sorry chingching, you only get this version of Anett for the most part.


Zhang Shuai switched a hitting partner, not sure who it is cause I didn't bother watching them practice.


Anybody got any idea how Naoko Eto got a wild card? She is 30+ years old, so she is definitely not a young promising player.


I think this one went into the net as well :eek:h:


Anett serving.

Haha no. He just gave very basic comments :lol: In his defence though he did have to watch from the most ridiculous position :spit: And he did watch some practices, but in China they ban spectators. They wouldn't even let the people watch Anett's match, that's why he got kicked out :facepalm: :help:

Anyway, more stuff from him :


Anett hit the last ball down the line then ended the match.


Handshakes.


This is the closest clear shot I can get for Anett :tape:

I am sure there will be other people visiting the venue in the coming days, so for sure you can see some clear pictures or even other things once they start the main draw and actually do events.

Turkish Mynx ultimate socialite :inlove:

What a great OP :worship:

Too bad Anett couldn't get a double bagel, would have been a perfect start to a new thread.
And thank you Tennisfan06 :inlove: I am glad you liked it :dance: And yes, I am still pressed now :haha: She has to play CoCo Sheniqua too, who I don't want to lose :sad:

The Main Draw is out and the Qualifier placements are quite good :inlove: She could play another Qualifier,Yanina Wang, Urszula Radwanska, Hsieh and Halep. Obviously Halep is bad but the others are very good and also good R2s :inlove: Let's just beat CoCo Sheniqua first though :D

Weather has cleared up a lot so we will most likely see her :)

Also, Naomi gave Anett some love in a WTA interview :inlove:

"WTA Insider: Tennis is a funny sport. A few weeks ago you lost 6-4 in the third to Kontaveit and she went on to make the round of 16 at the US Open. This week you got into the tournament as a lucky loser and now you're into the semifinals.
Broady: It's kind of been a crazy year. I've lost to a lot of girls this year in three sets or in close matches that have all been playing well and a lot of them have broken into the Top 100. I kept thinking to myself, I just needed to catch a break or get a good draw. Now I've been given this second chance as the lucky loser.

Anett played great in the final round at the US Open and I played well too. It was a great match and that she was able to go on to beat those other players, I'm able to take confidence from her success too because I know that I was right there with her in that match."
