Anett Kontaveit is currently being coached by Dmitry Tursunov. His career-high singles ranking was world No. 20, achieved in October 2006.

She’s a bit more aggressive, and I think that’s a kind of built-in trait. I felt she has this internal aggression in her game, suppressed in some way and that’s what I felt she should tap into,” Tursunov told Tennis.com at Indian Wells.

Anett began her collaboration with Dmitry Tursunov in the Cincinnati Masters 2021 (August), before which she was coached by Ain Suurthal for a brief period of 2 months. Nigel Sears had been her previous long-term coach lasting from June 2018 to April 2021.

Kontaveit is an aggressive player, who utilizes a variety of strokes and hits to force opponents to hit uncontrolled and sloppy returns which enable her to strike fast or draw quick errors.
