Uzbekistan = Vekicstan
It will be interesting to see how she plays against a puddler if Cadantu wins
She was lucky today because Jovanovski played into her strengths: gave her pace and didn't move her that much
I would love to see her against Cadantu
If only she had beaten Gallovits-Hall, then she could have played Stosur
Anyway, well done
I really hope she makes the final

Re: Donna Vekic

Must agree that she certainly plays her best tennis against players who give her pace to play with, that would also explain why she lost those few matches at junior level that she really shouldn't lose given the quality of her game.

Anyone ever watched Birnerova? Her hard court career record is awful (something like 36-53), and i see that she served load of double faults in each match that she played here. Anyone with some insight of her game that actually saw her play?

Re: Donna Vekic

It doesn't matter how Birnerova plays, Donna Express will blow her out of the court

Re: Donna Vekic

Well Birnerova is ranked #133 so Donna definitely has a great chance to reach the final. Even if Donna loses she'll be up to around #139 on Monday.

She made final last year because of Radwanska retired in the semi, don't think she's any weapon

24.7.12' Rybarikova def. Birnerova 6-1 6-1
15.2.12' Arruabarrena def. Birnerova 6-4 6-0

Don't ask me why I'm an optimist

I am also optimist but don't forget that Donna is 16 years old and this will be her 7th match in tournament.
It's normal to have bad days too.
Let's hope not tomorow!

It doesn't mean she has to stay in wta tourny from now on, she could go back to itfs if she feel good

We went to the moon, then we go back stay in the earth orbit until we feel good to be back to the moon again, then mars and beyond

Good analergy
I think though that in terms of become a more developed player she needs to stick to WTAs and 50 to 125K Challengers.
This is what I want her schedule to be for the rest of the year:
100K Poitiers/75K+H Ismaning
125K + H Taipei
125K + H Delhi

This can be her trial season:
Now that she has defended all her points, this is where she can see if she can give up the lower events for real, or whether she still needs a few 25Ks to keep her ranking up
