Re: Donna Vekic

Yeah, Jandova oould be tricky as she's a challenger circuit regular. Also, last week she beat M. Koek, who's ranked even higher than Sobaszkiewicz (currently 427, but at one point last year as high as 396), and that's her best win so far this year, so she's obviously in some good form. A very good test for Donna. Let's see if she passes this one as well.

That can't be good for a 14 year-old body!

Probably not, but professional sport in general is not good for a 14 y.o. body so... Also, not all 14 year-olds are equal, just like not all grown-ups are equal, some have much better stamina and energy levels than others.

But I do agree that this is a lot of tennis in a short period of time. As someone here wrote, 2 tournaments in a month is not a problem, no it's not I say, but it has more to do with a number of matches played in a certain time frame.

It's great that Donna has wonderful working conditions and a number of experts around her, which can certainly help lessen the risk of injuries. A main draw wild-card for Hvar would be great, but somehow I think chances of that happening are next to none. Reaching the finals here would guarantee her a main draw spot next week, but that's also a bit much to ask IMO.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna was free in monday,she played match on tuesday,and than she is free on wednesday and thursday so I think that strength will not be the issue here.She played 1 match in last 4 days so I think she had some rest from the qualies matches.Jana Jandova had heavy match in the 1st round like Donna in 3 sets.It could be very interesting match.If Donna loose I don't think that will be cos she is tired.But that's only my opinion.

She's not free on Turhsday (today), she's playing, probably at this very moment, cause her match is scheduled as 2nd after 9 AM.

Yeah, this user (croat123) is writing from Florida, USA, so 5 AM in Croatia is 11PM the day before in Florida. And then some people say that Croatia is falling behind the more developed world, while it's obvious that we're 6 hours ahead of Florida...

Donna lost 64 67(3) 16 after having 2 match points Still she had a very good tournament, and her future seems very bright.

Re: Donna Vekic

Great to see that she kept it so close for two sets against an experienced, in form player. This is all a part of the learning process and Donna must've got something out of it.

Let's see now if she can qualify for Hvar as well, the field there is not as strong as in Bol. Overall, this was a really good week.

Why, when she's the country's top junior...?
