Re: Donna Vekic

I am actually really proud of Donna
She had to fly from Brazil and get only one day off, and has had a comeback victory and has managed to win matches against players she would normally beat but has had roadblocks in her way. I think that for a 16 year old, this is an amazing achievement: more impressive than her title wins

It is nice that for once we have low expectations, less heartbreak if she loses

And another piece of good news, Olga Puchkova who beat Donna in the final of 25K Namangan just made the semis of Baku and in similar conditions beat some good players so this is a great sign for Donna as she almost beat her

I hope she plays some harder events soon. Maybe 50K Podgorica as it is in a less played locations and she would be highly seeded. These 25Ks are too easy for her now

Re: Donna Vekic

Is it wrong if I never even heard of Carina before?

When does the match start?

Not really
She has had some great wins, but has never had any really good runs at tournaments. She qualified for Bastad and won Ystad 25K

Re: Donna Vekic

F: (5)Carina Witthoeft (GER) df. (1)Donna Vekic (CRO) 6-2 6-7(4) 6-2

Expected outcome really. Still a great effort for Donna to win a set. Another great tournament. Too bad it's yet another lost final but reaching the final is still a great achievement! It's not like she's losing first or second round. She's very close to Top 200 now. I think she's still just outside though. It won't be long though!

I imagine she'll stay in London to train until it's time to head to NYC.

USO Q's will be crucial. Just one win would move her into the 170s

Donna will get 15 tournaments before her 17th birthday if she plays all GS as they will count as merited increases

Are you sure 1 win would push her that high???
Don't you get 40 points for a win???
She wouldn't go that far with a 25K win I doubt

Re: Donna Vekic

246+34+34-12=302 This will be her CH201. Than she will loose 8 more points 302-8=294 points (207 ranking).
294+40=334 ...so, with 40 points from first round(US OPEN)she will be around 182 place.

Re: Donna Vekic

Looks like Donna's next tournament after the USO is WTA Tashkent: http://www.donnavekic.com/?page_id=29

She plans to continue her whorish/vulturish ways

OK now you're out'a line mister Tashkent is a prestigious WTA event attended by all the major stars OK I'm full of it now, but we can't say this is not an improvement. Definately a sign that we can expect an interesting 2013.
