Anett Kontaveit

Estonian star Anett Kontaveit has collected her third title of the season at the VTB Kremlin Cup 2021. But it was not a piece of cake for a 25-year-old to lift the title on the indoor hard court in the heritage city. She bounced back from 4-6, 0-4 down to stunning the fans favourite Ekaterina Alexandrova(4-6, 6-4, 7-5)  in two-hour and 22-minute.  

“To go 4-0 down (in the second set), she was really hitting the balls down the line, she was playing amazing tennis,” Anett Kontaveit said in her post-match press conference.

 “I was just trying to stay in it as long as I could, and I never really gave up. I was just trying to fight for every point as much as I could. If I would have lost 6-4, 6-2 or whatever, I knew I tried everything.”

“When these moments happen, which they do happen, I’m just trying to think about the process and not too much of the score, which can be difficult, of course, sometimes.”

“I think that the main thing is to try and think about the process and what I have to do, and not focus on other things that you cannot control.”
