Re: Donna Vekic

I'm really sad for this outcome after that great start. Edina's experience paid off, she was capable to do what Sirotkina and Pliskova couldn't.
But anyway, I can't be upset with Donna, she's been fabulous this week. I'm proud to be her fan

You know what, I'm still very proud of Donna, so I'll do it anyways.
Someone would recommend a nice picture with her?

Re: Donna Vekic

I was afraid that she will not be ready for this. Just remember Kuala Lumpur...when she said she wasn't ready for first WTA win. Oh, well, still amazing, amazing tournament for Donna! I really hope she keeps this level for junior event!

Re: Donna Vekic

Still a great week
I think she might have gotten very tired and by the end hit many unforced errors due to Gallovits-Hall being very consistent

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

I'm pretty sure that's the case. According to some sources her coach wanted her to play the pro event already in Wimbledon, but she insisted to play one more junior event.

Anyway, wow, what to say after yesterday's result. Definately a great tournament for Donna, but this one's gonna hurt. Real bad. Sure, she'll put on a happy face for the public and say that she's happy with the outcome altogether, but believe me that she'll need a lot of time to get over this.

What's encouraging is that she is already capable of playing at a great level for many larger events, like Tashkent - if she's able to produce this kind of form there, she could do really good. She can definately learn a lot from this tournament and I hope there is a lesson or two that she picked up. If nothing else, she showed herself (and everyone else) that she can beat really solid players on very big events, which is invaluable in itself. I would dare to say that she reached a whole other level this time around.

Really looking forward to her future events, her future definately seems bright. She just has to make sure not to lose focus, cause hard work is definately starting to pay off.

Re: Donna Vekic

If she qualified she would've played another qualifier, Stefanie Voegele, in the first round.

Yes, I'm disappointed. Had the match in my pocket... but lost, 6-2 4-6 0-6. What's clear is my game is getting better and better .... and in the near future i'll win these matches! I felt all your support playing in NYC - thanks!
Good attitude, I think.

Re: Donna Vekic

Hope they realize this is not only the result of her game - her thought patterns and on-court attitude need more tuning.
