Disappointed to lose today after a very tough match. My opponent Friedsam is a great clay court player and I lost 3-6, 6-4, 3-6 after a 3 hour marathon match! Lots of positives but certainly things to work on.
I like how she always seems to be positive after losses

Re: Donna Vekic

She has a great chance to finish the year in top 200 and that will be enough for this year

I think this is Felgate's "fault". He probably put that in her head that she is still young and can learn both from wins and defeats. That's quite a good attitude when you're just starting since you will have a lot of bad losses down the road.

Too bad Donna didn't win but.... ah well, now let's see what she can do on grass. Expecting a much better result in Wimby then she did in RG.

I bet she meant a terrible week for Croatian players. Not one made it past R2, including at the ITF level: http://www.tennisforum.com/showthrea...2#post21628992

At least our guys are doing quite well this week - two of them with a chance for an ATP semifinal in Queen's

I agree with Felgate. How can she be disappointed??? I mean, maybe if she played shit the whole match and gave it to Friedsamm that would be different, but with this result she has proven just where she's at and that she has the capability to win tournaments on clay and win tournaments in Europe. I knew she was going tom lose, but given how close the score was, I now believe in her a lot more as a player and in her potential. This was a very good loss

You make an excellent argument

I wasn't sarcastic It's a better thing to be optimistic rather than suffering for losses, but she really could win this one, if it wasn't for the choke in the last set. Bittersweet thing for us. You believe in her more now, but I guess you would've believed even more if she was to won
She surely was a bit upset after the match. Probably not as much as we were

Re: Donna Vekic

Really unlucky with the draw, Friedsam is through to the finals. She beat the next two opponents easily: 6-2 6-0 against Sabino and 6-2 6-1 against 4th seed Gatto-Monticone.

Donna was the only one who actually made it competitive!

I know you weren't being sarcastic
I was just saying that I agree with her coach that it is good to take the positives from a loss
There was probably no reason for me to quote you
