Former world number 2, Anett Kontaveit, has made a triumphant return to the tennis courts. She did a comeback in the BJK cup after a disastrous start to her season in 2023 due to injury. Kontaveit, who had been sidelined with a severe back injury, has been out of action for some time, causing her ranking to slip outside the top 60.
However, the Estonian player came back with a bang. She secured a win for her country in the Billie Jean King Cup round-robin tie against South Africa. Kontaveit defeated Isabella Kruger (365) in straight sets, 6-1, 6-2, to clinch the victory for Estonia.
Kontaveit’s return to the tour has been eagerly anticipated by fans and commentators alike. Now she aims to recapture her previous form. The 25-year-old had previously played at the WTA Finals last year. She was ranked number two in the world less than a year ago, but a series of injuries and poor results have seen her slip down the ranking.
Despite her recent setbacks, Kontaveit’s win in the Billie Jean King Cup is a promising sign of things to come. With her sights set firmly on returning to the top of the game, Kontaveit is back on the court and ready to fight for her place among the world’s best players.
