Anett Kontaveit defeated Barbora Krejcikova in the opening match of the WTA Finals. The Estonian star defeated Czechia’s Krejcikova 6-3, 6-4 in another stellar performance this season.
Anett had a strong service game and outscored Barbora 43-33 in terms of service points. She had an 18-16 receiving point edge and overall won 61 points compared to 41 by Krejcikova. Anett’s win percentage on the first serve read 85% and she also won 2/3 breakpoints to seal the deal.
Kontaveit has now won 11 WTA games in a row, winning the Kremlin Cup, Transylvania Open title, and is well on her way to pile on the streak. Can Anett continue her hot run and win this group?
