Serena Williams of the United States will play against Annet Kontaveit in the US Open at Arthur Ashe Stadium. Fans are enjoying the game and are posting a lot on social media about how the game is going.
Estonian professional tennis player Anett Kontaveit is at her best at the moment. The Women’s Tennis Association ranks her as high as second.
Annet made history when she became the Estonian player with the best ranking. She was also the youngest player to win the Estonian Championships in 2009.
What Is Anett Kontaveit Illness?
Anett got sick in April of this year and had to drop out of the WTA1000 tournament in Madrid, Spain. Then, Croatian Ana Konjuh took her place. But later in June, she pulled out of the WTA Tour 500 tournament next week in Eastbourne.
It turned out that the pro athlete had corona, and even though the pandemic was over, she was still in the process of getting better. She was the number two player in the world at the time.
But it wasn’t the first time her physical condition kept her from doing well. She started the 2019 US Open by winning two rounds, but a viral illness caused her to drop from third to fourth. She could have won, just like she had in other rounds, but she didn’t put her health at risk.
She told her fans that she was going to have a small operation to fix the same health problem. But, unfortunately, she didn’t tell what had happened to her in a clear way.
In 2015, Kontaveit went back to Estonia to play in the Fed Cup, but she couldn’t do her best because she was sick with a condition that she didn’t tell her fans about.
But her fans appreciate how hard she tries to keep going no matter what. Also, they seem a little upset with her because she doesn’t tell them what happened to her.

Anett has won five singles titles on the ITF Circuit and six singles titles on the WTA Tour. In 2010, at age 26, the athlete turned pro as a tennis player. So we can say she has spent her whole life playing the game.
Also, the athlete seems to be active on social media and posts a lot of pictures about her job, the places she visits, and the time she spends with her friends. But she hasn’t shown any pictures to the person we could call her partner.
So, we think she might be single right now and is working hard to get to the top of the WTA ranking.

Also, if we look at her total prize money, she has won $7,655,943 so far in her career. Also, when she turned pro in 2010, she might have made more money. So, the brand endorsement could be another way for her to make money.
