Re: Donna Vekic

Vekić defeated Artamonova 6-2 6-3. In last qual. round she will have very hard task against Monica Puig.

I'm not an optimist about that match, Monica has very solid results this year

Re: Donna Vekic

On her facebook she said that she would play her last match of qualies before entering the MD for the first time. Is that a typo or has she been granted a LL spot if she loses

I hope that she will qualifies and get Tsurenko than Voskoboeva in second round.
Good luck !!!
Something has changed. There is one place for lucky looser. 4 those girls above + Eleni Danilidou.
So, 4 qualifiers + ll.
Anyone knows has Donna got any chances to be LL?

Re: Donna Vekic

Very nice! Donna will move up to ~172.

For now she's limited to 12 events, so I believe this will be her last tournament of the year

Assuming she wants to play in Australia in January, that means she won't be able to defend her 68(!) points from the two Lagos finals.

Re: Donna Vekic

Grand Slams won't count towards her number of events. They count as a "merited increase" so it's 12 events outside of the Grand Slams.

Re: Donna Vekic

Oh I totally forgot on that restrictions about number of tournaments for young players That's why there aren't anymore tournaments on her schedule.

That means that if she looses tomorrow she will finish year on place 212. She must win last quali round and first round if she wants to be in top 200

Re: Donna Vekic

But she can play 12 tournaments between her 16th and 17th birthday. She's only played 2 non-Grand Slam events since she turned 16 so doesn't that mean she can play 10 more events outside Grand Slams before she turns 17 (28th June 2013)?

Yes
This will be her 3rd
If she gets into Grand-Slams on her on merit, then Merited Oncreases count, but if you receive a WC they don't
I think you can only get 2 Merited Increases though

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

Re: Donna Vekic

I just read the age eligibility rule in the WTA rulebook and I think BlueTrees is right on both points above

And, yes, only 2 merited increases.

Re: Donna Vekic

She always writes in her schedule on official website her next tournaments . . . and there is nothing after Taskhent

Hope that administrators on her page are lazy and they forgot to update it.

Very small chance. I believe that in WTA events LL's are based on ranking and Donna is one of the lowest-ranked players in the final Q round.
