Nottingham SF: Vekic def. [5]Safarova 7-6(5) 3-6 7-6(4)

To be honest I only saw the last tiebreak, that had too many nervous errors from Lucie, an incredible DF from Donna and an umpire that had a terrible day. Overruled a clearly wide serve to an ace, got the score wrong at 4-4 in a final set tiebreak and on the match point the serve was long but went uncalled.

Lol at quite a few members having Vekic in their fan sigs last year but removing her.

Just gotta stay faithful guys.

Great serving from Vekic in the third set.

Final

She's playing very well. Have you watched her this week?

Donna at her best is a great player. Already has a WTA title and a handful of other finals.

A really good match that no-one should have lost...
Great fighting, too many UEs by Lucie DTL bh and too many DF by Donna.

well done Ladies for this tough fight until the (bitter) end.

Re: Nottingham SF: Vekic def. [5]Safarova 7-6(5) 3-6 7-6(4)

I saw a good second half of the match from the middle of the second set till the end. Vekic played well for her standards, had a good first serve today, Lucie played solid but still makes some silly mistakes here and there (so does Vekic at times). Overall it was fine quality and good hitting from both. I wish Lucie could make Vekic move more with drop shots and stuff, because Donna has a serious trouble with her feet, legs and movement imo. But in her zone she takes risks on her hitting and that paid off today.
