Donna has quite a good draw I think except for various little bumps that she should get past like Hermoso, Forte, Haddad Maia and Eikeri. Then except for Irigoyen, Gonzalez or Adamczak, the title is hers
Adamczak is in decent form though, so I suspect the final will be closer than in Uzbekistan

One thing that I found puzzling is why Donna didn't play this weeks Woking-Foxhills. It can't have been because of the Brazil Challenger being easier because according to rankings, Woking-Foxhills is actually weaker. Melanie South, ranked 269 is the 4th seed It would have been easier in terms of travel (which Donna says she doesn't like), financially and in terms of good preparation. Anyway, there's nothing we can do about it now

Re: Donna Vekic

Good for Donna
There used to be a match of Kurata on youtube which I saw, and she wasn't a bad player so it's good Donna could get through in straights

Re: Donna Vekic

Glad Donna won, even if it was closer than I expected. Should be good for a new CH ranking (and if not, a R2 win would definitely do it).

She has 12 points from a 10k title coming off

Re: Donna Vekic

It's quite fascinating to look at some numbers of her's - so far this year she earned 158 points in total, while during the same period of 2011 she got a total of...29! Sure, she's not playing the toughest tournaments possible, but this is still really good considering she almost never received a wild-card.

It'll be interesting to see how far can she go this week and next. If she is to make it to the semis in Brazil and then win Wrexham, she could reach top 200 even before US Open, as she's defending almost nothing until then. Two finals would also do.

Fingers crossed

I still think she should have played Woking-Foxhills instead because IMO she has almost as much chance winning that than this. And she would definately have more chance of winning Wrexham (where she will be Number 1 seed for the first time in her pro career in a MD) if she didn't have the long commute. She might have to play the day after she arrives home. Anyway, let's hope she can keep on doing well here

I am curious about her post US Open schedule as she has to defend 68 Points from Lagos's and unless she qualifies for the US Open, which I don't see happening, she won't be able to defend. Maybe the 75K + H in Barnstaple If she makes the Semis that's nearly all her points + US Open Although whether she would make the final is another question. Anyway, there are so many possibilities. It will be interesting to see which path she choses

Re: Donna Vekic

I'm not really worried about Lagos, cause she can defend almost three quarters of those points with just one win in New York. And even if she doesn't make it there, there's still enough time left in the season.

I never realised how many points you get for making second round. It is kind of funny that First round gets 2, Second gets 40, 3rd gets 50 an Qualifier gets 60. It's kind of a big jump and then nothing
I hope she can get that win then
PLEASE HAVE A GOOD DRAW!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, but those points come off July 30--one week after the Brazil points are counted (July 23)--so it's almost certain Donna will have a CH ranking for at least one week.

Sorry to intrude, but aren't points from 25k's added after a delay of one week, just like those from 10k's?
