This thread really died!!

Anyway, since the restart Anett has been playing very well. A final in Palermo, QF in Cinci and R4 at USO, 11-3 overall.

She plays Kuznetsova or Pera in R2 now in Rome. She’s in the easier part of the draw so if she can get past that match and then Svitolina in R3 she could go deep!

(17)Kontaveit v Garcia
Sasnovich v Friedsam
Bouzkova v Kanepi
Gasparyan v (16)Mertens

A very difficult first few rounds. It would be amazing to see an all Estonian R3 but I would be surprised if they both get there, even one of them would be an achievement. Sasnovich again 😩

Sadly it is over in R1 for Anett as she goes down 46 63 46.

She told she felt she played a rather good match, except last games, Garcia started to take more risks when she was down in 3rd and it paid off for her.
Still has problems with shoulder, took painkillers the last few days but she didn't think it affected the match much.
Told she's gonna see doctor later and check the shoulder, possibly pulling out from the doubles draw (with Kasatkina, against Christian/Olmos).
Wants to play as much as possible this year, will play in Ostrava next.

Really disappointing result, she could have won this but faded a lot in the last few games and Garcia ran over her. It’s great she’s become more consistent (and I mean 26-13 is an excellent ratio), but I really feel like she was too defensive at the end, plus threw in some random errors. Such a hard draw though so it’s hard to be disappointed, she most likely would have struggled in every match this year.

Hopefully the shoulder is ok, it would be nice to see her play Doubles but it’s probably better to rest if it’s a concern. The European tournaments this year are going to be packed so she doesn’t have much to lose.

Anett lost 7-5, 6-1 to Kudermetova. It appeared that she had a blister on her hand after the first full changeover.

She's coming in for press in like half an hour, so i'll see what she has to say.

She said she is disappointed she only got to play 1 match but is not overly mad about the loss. She feels that Kudermetova does not suit her plating style at all.
