Well, that shouldn't be too much of a problem for her, cause she plays many of these Central Asian tournaments where there are similar playing conditions. Not to mention that she played many junior events in places like India as well as pro events in Africa, whose conditions are not easily comparable to those in most other places that host tennis tournaments. Donna is definately not a player that gets tired easily.

Re: Donna Vekic

Good start For Donna, she won 6-3 6-3. Next match is against either Artamonova (WTA 329) or Lertcheewakarn (WTA 169).

Yeah, she could have achieved it already in her premier appearance in Kuala Lumpur qualies but barely lost.
Now she is already far better player it seems.

Re: Donna Vekic

Great to see Donna so confidently through to QR2, especially considering she faced an opponent that she's already beaten before - put a bit of unnecessary pressure on oneself into the equation and trouble is a heartbeat away. I'm guessing she'll face Lertcheewakarn next. Don't know much about her, but sensing she's a pusher, and that could be a tricky task for Donna. Hope I'm wrong

Re: Donna Vekic

No, she won't play against Lertcheewakarn because she lost against Artamonova.

Beside win against Lertcheewakarn, Artamonova didn't beat any player ranked in TOP 280 this year.

Donna is big favorite in this match, and real battle should be in last qualification round against Monica Puig.

Match will start tomorrow about 9.00 AM.

Re: Donna Vekic

If Donna qualifies in MD, she can play against: Alexandra Cadantu (ROM,68), Magdalena Rybarikova(SVK,66), Galina Voskoboeva(KAZ,80) and Lesia Tsurenko(UKR,111)
I hope that she will qualifies and get Tsurenko than Voskoboeva in second round.
Good luck !!!

But fewer points for one match here (6 pts) than in a $25K MD (8 pts)

I know but it's not a bout points, it's the learning curve that matters
