Anett Kontaveit (WTA 3) was happy in early 2021 and 2022. However, in early spring, she tested positive for COVID-19. Since then, he cannot regain his shape. In the first round of Roland Garros, she lost to Australian Ajali Tomljanovic in two fierce sets. At Wimbledon, I only dealt with one competitor. On Wednesday, the Estonian woman suffered a defeat. She lost 4:6, 0:6 with German Julie Niemeyer (WTA 97).

The fate of the first group was decided by one breakthrough, which Niemeier scored in 3: 2. In the second Kontaveit, absolutely nothing came out. She served poorly, in exchanges she was shocked by embarrassment. The German woman was effective in her game and smart. It changed directions and rotation really well, and it speeded up the game very well. I smashed the Estonian in 58 minutes.

Niemeyer took four break points and used them all. Kontaveit did not create a single opportunity for a break. I served seven closing runs and made 24 unforced errors. The Germans scored 13 straight wins and 13 fouls. In the second group, the Estonian team was awarded only 10 points.

Kontaveit won five titles from August 2021 to February 2022. In addition, she reached the final at the WTA Championships in Guadalajara. In February, she was victorious in St. Petersburg after a dramatic battle with the Greek Maria Skari. At the end of February in the final in Doha I lost 2: 6, 0: 6 to IGA Shvik. In six consecutive tournaments, the Estonian has tallied 4-6 matches. She won only two consecutive matches in Stuttgart, reaching the quarter-finals.

On June 6, Estonian took second place in the ranking for the first time. At Wimbledon, she was seeded number two, because last week, when the arc was drawn, she was still second. Kontaveit has been third since Monday, followed by Ons Jabeur.

Niemeyer scored her first win over the top 10 tennis players of her career. This is her first Wimbledon appearance, and her second Grand Slam performance overall. In the first round of this year’s Roland Garros, American Sloane Stephens smashed the group. Last season, the German reached the semi-finals of the WTA Championships in Strasbourg and Hamburg.
