Estonian Anett Kontaveit has risen steadily in recent months and is currently one of the best players in the world. She is currently ranked No. 2 in the world, which is a mega jump since late last year. She started the year by reaching the semifinals of the Sydney Tennis Classic but was eliminated in the second round of the Australian Open.

She then bounced back by winning the St. Petersburg Trophy and also reached the final of the Qatar Open where she lost to Iga Swiatek. But things didn’t go well for Kontaveit on clay. Her best result was a quarterfinal at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix and at Roland Garros she was overwhelmed by Ajla Tomljanovic in the first round.

As a result, Kontaveit decided to end her partnership with her Russian coach, Dmitry Tursunov. The duo started working in August last year, when Kontaveit wasn’t even in the top 25 in the world. She took to social media to announce her decision after the French Open.

Kontaveit will now work with experienced German coach Torben Beltz, who has already had many successes with top WTA players. Among his students, former world No. 1 Angelique Kerber was the most successful, whom he coached on four separate occasions. Kerber’s most successful season was under Beltz’s helm, during which she won the Australian Open and US Open titles and also made it to the finals at Wimbledon, the Rio Olympics and the WTA Finals.

Beltz has also had success with former world No. 19 Donna Vekic in the past and last coached Emma Raducanu since November last year before splitting in April this year. Under his leadership, Raducanu shocked the world by winning the 2021 US Open title. Beltz and Kontaveit trained together on Sunday and will travel together to Wimbledon for their first tournament together.
