Anett Kontaveit’s 2022 season came to an early conclusion after back injury
Anett Kontaveit has had a quite uneventful year on the WTA Tour in 2022. The Estonian was poised for greater success in 2022, after finishing as the runner-up at the year-end finals in 2021. However, Anett Kontaveit could manage to claim just one title this season, which came in February in Petersburg, Russia.
Her season came to an early conclusion, after she was plagued with a back injury during her second round encounter at the Ostrava Open. The Estonian will look to come back stronger in 2023, as she is still recovering from the back issue.
Anett Kontaveit faced early exits at all four majors in 2022, where she was knocked out in only the first and second rounds. On the contrary, the Estonian put on a stellar display in 2021. She claimed four titles last year, and broke into the top 10 rankings, which helped her qualify for the WTA Final. She also managed to reach the finals of the year-end event, but was defeated by Garbine Muguruza.
