Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 3

Donna's first tournament of 2017 will be Brisbane international.

Her current position in the entry list suggests she'll most likely have to play the qualifying event, unless we get several withdrawals over the next few days.

Before AO she'll also play Sydney, starting with the qualies.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 3

Four of the eight seeded Q's are already out by QR2 (Dodin, Hsieh, Falconi, Crawford) but there are still plenty of dangerous Q's left who could beat Donna (Bondarenko, BMS, Schiavone, etc.)

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 3

Plays Muhammad in R1. Much better than if she had drawn Krunic or BMS. The fourth possibility was Aiava, who has been playing out of her mind this weekend. So yeah, probably the best possible draw for Donna.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 3

"Donna had a great off season in Geneva. Positive results from the second half of this season have left their mark in both, motivation and her game."

...then faces #192 and:

4:1 -> 6:7, 1:6

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 3

Admittedly Asia played some good tennis there. Asia served very well, served and volleyed quite well too. Wasn't just Donna's fault.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 3

^^ Nevertheless, the difference of almost 100 ranking spots should've been enough to get Donna out of this one.

Majoli was also known for such implosions after tough first sets lost, but at least she had enough talent to still make a nice career. Donna can't afford that shit if she wants to go somewhere with tennis, besides to players parties.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 3

Asia with a very high 1st serve %. And Donna in set 1 converted 2 of 2 BP opportunities. Situation reversed in set 2 with Asia converting 2 of 2 and Donna unable to save any of the BPs against her. Can be tricky going in cold against a qualifier I guess.
