Last season, Kontaveit, 26, won four matches in two months, but she has failed to match that energy this year, particularly after contracting covid-19 a few months ago.
Anett Kontaveit, the world number four, overcame an early scare as the top seed and home favourite at the Tallinn Open, but she should be the better for it after fighting back from a set down to defeat Xiyu Wang. Last season, Kontaveit, 26, won four matches in two months, but she has failed to match that energy this year, particularly after contracting covid-19 a few months ago. This seemed to be a gracious way to follow up a win against in-form Wang, with world number 75 Tereza Martincova trailing the Estonian 2-0 in their head-to-head record. Martincova, 27, defeated Mirjam Bjorkland in straight sets on Tuesday, but Kontaveit, even if a little below par at the moment, has enough to eliminate the Czech.
Anett Kontaveit and Tereza Martincova are scheduled to face each other in the round of 16 of the 2022 Tallinn Open on Thursday, September 29. The tournament is scheduled to begin on September 19 and end on October 2.
The 2022 Tallinn Open is scheduled to commence on September 26 and go on until October 2 this year. The tournament will have five rounds of play excluding the qualifiers. These are the round of 32, round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals.
