Re: Donna Vekic

Oh well, what to say after this, I guess a nice way to start would be to congratulate Donna on another final.

BUT...this was not good. Sure thing, she is still young and there's no real reason to rush with her development, but there are definately areas where she is quite vulnerable (not surprising for her age), particularly on the backhand side and she also doesn't move too well I'd say. Irigoyen figured this out on time and utilized to the max. Another thing that I noticed here is that she is playing much better when she is trying to control and dictate the point. When she retreives and leaves the initiative to the opponent, that's when things start to fall apart. I hope they'll also adress this mental aspect of her game, cause it could prove to be crucial. She clearly never gives up, and that's great to see (not even when she is far behind on the scoreline), and her serve is very good too, but if I remember correctly, majority of her double faults came at very important moments - definately something to work on, cause it's a mind thing.

All in all, not a terrible performance, and I wish her all the best in her future development. Maybe she just didn't feel good out there today, or simply had a bad day, who would know for sure (after all, she's a female tennis player...). She will certainly need to show something more in NY if she wants to win a match there, cause opposition might be much better than today. Hope she'll be ready.

Anyway, another week, another tournament coming up...good luck Donna

Re: Donna Vekic

That match was atrocious all around. I couldn't bear watching more than three games, it hurt my eyeballs so much.

That said, very good week for Donna, reaching another $25K final at the tender age of 16; picking up 34 points; and reaching a new CH ranking.

Re: Donna Vekic

Another thing that I don't like in this is that it's yet another loss in the finals, her 6th overall (4th on 25k's), compared to just 3 in which she won (2 of which were 25k). As I was writing before, this could lead to developing the wrong mind-set and to all kinds of brain freeze scenarios when she would find herself in the finals again. Her team should really look into turning that stat around somehow.

Re: Donna Vekic

Here's Donna's section of the draw for $25,000 Wrexham. Thankfully Witthoeft is in the other half! I see no reason why Donna can't have another deep run this week.

(1)Donna Vekic (CRO) vs. (Q)Angelica Moratelli (ITA)
(Q)Anna Fitzpatrick (GBR) vs. Emily Webley-Smith (GBR)
(Q)Elisabeth Fournier (CAN) vs. (WC)Jade Windley (GBR)
(7)Isabella Shinikova (BUL) vs. Justyna Jegiolka (POL)

A bit closer than I expected but she did just travel halfway around the world. At least she put the bad performance in the final last week behind her.

She plays Emily Webley-Smith (GBR) next.

Edit: Donna is the only seed in her half left in the draw. South, Shinikova and Rottmann all lost first round.

Re: Donna Vekic


Final time
Although Webley-Smith has a lot of talent. Her opponent in the first round Fitzpatrick almost beat Donna in Indonesia IIRC

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex
