Re: Donna Vekic

This seems like potentially a very tough task for Donna. Basically the best thing she has to rely on is the lack of consistency on the side of the opponent. But then there's her own lack of consistency, not to mention inexperience on big events. To make it worse, this is quite an important match for Donna even if we neglect the fact that it's her first slam - it could make it easier (or more difficult) for her to defend the remaining points from 2011.

All in all, an exciting, but also a bit frightening match ahead. Best of luck Donna!

If she qualifies, she defends all but 3 points which is great but if she loses first round, she will have to realistically at least make MD in Tashkent

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

The chances of Donna qualifying are remote. But just one win would be a big success, as it would allow her to defend the majority of her remaining 2011 points.

Good luck, Donna!

Re: Donna Vekic

Btw, today was one to forget for fans of Croatian tennis. In Dallas, Lucic lost both her matches and Jurak lost in doubles. At the USO, Lisjak and Mrdeza lost to players they had a good-to-excellent chance of beating--as did Franko Skugor on the men's side.

Re: Donna Vekic

According to some Croatian bookies, Donna is a slight favorite in today's match

1367 Vekić D.-Sirotkina M. sri 20:45 1,75 1,85

Who would it know that only 2.5 years after this thread was open, we would see Donna on her first senior Grand Slam

Those results tell a lot how much they are ready to compete on GS level

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna will win today, I have really good feeling about this match After two finals in Brazil and Wrexham she took few days off for vacations, then she went to mountain Rogla for physical training and in the end she trained in London.

I believe that she's excellent prepared and that she'l make excellent result here.

Can't wait that match :P

Re: Donna Vekic

Are the quali matches really streamed this year or is it just a hearsay?

(and if they are; are there cameras on C6?)
