Re: Donna Vekic

OMG, I thought qualifying into the MD was already a great result, but a straight set win over Ribarikova is just huge
I long for a good performance against Arruabarena Vecino as well.

Re: Donna Vekic

The problem is that Donna't wonderfuly results have all come against opponents who hit the ball flat and hard. Look: Pliskova, Rybarikova and Sirotkina are not only all BBB but also love hardcourts and hit the ball flat as hell. Against Arruabarena-Vecino, she will give no pace and loopy balls. Donna needs to maintain her concentration, adapt and get the First Serve Percentage up

Re: Donna Vekic

She might find it useful to dig out a tape of AV's USO 2nd round match against Jankovic (not even sure that one was televised, but I suppose it was).

This "shity" moonballer as you call her has won WTA title this year,
So she certainly deserves some respect.

i said that because i hate that style.. no offenste to her or donna.
but i don't consider her as a good player and she won bogota so we all know that some challengers are stronger.
but it wont be easy for donna. that's for sure

Re: Donna Vekic

With this win Donna secured top 200 on the end of this season

Next month she must defend 68 points from Lagos, but in worst case she will be on 193. place. I'm sure that she will have much higer rank than that.

Great season already, every new win is a bonus.

Re: Donna Vekic

I just saw the result. What a win! I never expected this so early. Hopefully she can keep this run going

I can't remember the last time a girl this young won a WTA maindraw match

Re: Donna Vekic

5:2 with double break. Got broken once and broke her opponent already 3 times.
First set should be in the bag.
