"I never really gave up" says Anett Kontaveit on Kremlin Cup win

Anett Kontaveit won the 2021 Kremlin Cup and it was her 2nd trophy in as many months which left the Estonian quite happy.

It was not a very easy task for Kontaveit who lost the opening set and trailed 4-0 in the 2nd before turning around the match completely. That triumph left her in the race for WTA Finals with the Estonian needing a triumph in Cluj-Napoca to make it. After the match, Kontaveit spoke with the media explaining she never stopped believing:

"To go 4-0 down [in the second set], she was really hitting the balls down the line, she was playing amazing tennis. I was just trying to stay in it as long as I could, and I never really gave up. I was just trying to fight for every point as much as I could. If I would have lost 6-4, 6-2, or whatever, I knew I tried everything."

Kontaveit further said:

"When these moments happen, which they do happen, I’m just trying to think about the process and not too much of the score, which can be difficult, of course, sometimes. I think that the main thing is to try and think about the process and what I have to do, and not focus on other things that you cannot control."
