Estonia’s Anett Kontaveit has been on quite a run. She began working with former Russian tennis player Dmitry Tursunov in August, 2021. Since then, she has won 4 titles and has entered the Top 10 in the world.
Her impressive run helped her qualify for the WTA Finals in Guadalajara. Ons Jabuer narrowly missed on qualifying. Speaking of her incredible run, Kontaveit said
I think Dmitry [Tursonov, her coach] definitely brought some fresh air to the team and gave me a new perspective. He’s helped me take things more easy. I’ve been able to enjoy playing. That’s really been the key, that I’ve been able to have a good time on the court.
Anett Kontaveit and Jabeur had some funny back-and-forth on social media. Jabeur initially congratulated Kontaveit and then followed that up with what was really thinking.
