Re: Donna Vekic

Adamczak (first seed) is out Irigoyen is the biggest threat now, I think.

I think that Beatriz Haddad Maia is also big threat. We will see in SF.

Well, yeah, convincing win for Bia today. Plus, she's home. But still I don't think she would stand a chance a chance against Donna if they face each other

Oops, yes, they are. I know that well but didn't look correctly at the calendar. The 12 points from last year's title at Chiswick drop off the week of August 6 (not July 30) while the points from this week's event in Brazil are counted the week of July 30 (not July 23). That still means Donna will get her new CH ranking next week, around 224. If she wins her next match, it'll be around 215.

Re: Donna Vekic

Very convincing second round win! And great that Adamczak's out. Anything less than winning the title will be disappointing to be honest.

Don't underestimate Bia
She is lefty, playing at home and full of confidence
That match will be closer than you think IMO, as Donna hasn't had any really convincing wins except todays bagel, and that opponent was much worse than Bia
Still a nice win, and it is good she is hitting the ball better

A month ago you were underestimating Bia and I told you not to do so

That's because she was playing on Grass, in Europe, against a more experienced and older Anett
Here she is playing in South America (in fact her home country), against a younger opponent, full of confidence after a good win. Remember she lost first round of G2 Halle to some unknown on Grass. Anyway, Anett won comfortably in the end

Re: Donna Vekic

6-3 6-3 over Hermoso

Irigoyen beat 6-2 6-0 the 8th seed, which means she's in form

Re: Donna Vekic

QF: (2)Donna Vekic (CRO) df. (7)Ximena Hermoso (MEX) 6-3 6-3

Made it to the Semi-Finals of the Brasil 25k !! Played great tennis today in glorious sunshine, beating a very good player in Hermoso (Mex) 6-3 6-3. Sooo happy but fully focused for the SF tomorrow at 11am Brasil time.

Eikeri is 19 y.o.; she has been making very steady progress and is currently at her CH ranking. Here's wishing Donna good luck!
