Kontaveit continues where she left off, beating opponent in 50 minutes ({{commentsTotal}})

Estonia's new top tennis player Anett Kontaveit (WTA 98) continued her good form after reaching the top 16 in the US Open by beating Su-Wei Hsieh (WTA 112) 6:1, 6:3 in 50 minutes in the first round of a WTA tournament in China.

Kontaveit, who replaced Kaia Kanepi as Estonia's highest ranked female tennis at the latest rankings, will meet local Saisai Zheng (WTA 66) next in the 250,000-dollar tournament in Guangzhou, China.

Kontaveit, 19, beat a host of top 60 players at the US Open earlier in the month, climbing 56 places in the world rankings as a result.

Kanepi had faced Hsieh earlier in the year, losing in to the Taiwanese player 6:1, 6:4 at Wimbledon.

Kanepi lost in the second round of the US Open, and fell from 89th to 124th in the rankings. Kanepi, 30, achieved a career high of 15th in 2012, but she is known for bouncing back.
