What a dumbass.
There is a big difference to 25Ks in Lagos, Bangalore, Brazil, Indonesia and 2 in Uzbekistan, especially if they are individual tournaments without a so called "tour" then playing GS Qualies
Do you actually think that those 2 levels are the same
And I never said she had to play WTA Qualies, I said to play some European 25Ks. I think that GS is too hard, Uzbekistan is too easy. Do you not know what finding a balance means

And BlueTrees is right, Suzhou!!

fakat ne mogu vjerovat. The moment she enters top 100 is near.

Re: Donna Vekic

Great she pulled out the win in the end, but the scoreline is rather disappointing

Re: Donna Vekic

Maybe we just got an answer to the "why would she play a measly 25k" question - cause looks like her form is not as sharp as in Tashkent.

Let's look on the bright side. I'm very encouraged that Donna didn't give up after losing the first set; instead she seems to have gotten better as the match went along.

Also, maybe it's not that her form isn't sharp; maybe Honcova played well.

Either way, best of luck in the QF!

Re: Donna Vekic

By the way, if Donna wins her next match she'll move up to ~106 in TBE's ranking thread (LIVE WTA Rankings). In the process, she would overtake Lucic as the #2 Croat.

True on both accounts. We haven't seen the match so we can only speculate.

Does that take into account Lucic's result from this week?

Re: Donna Vekic

So Donna made 36 points with these 2 wins and she's virtually somewhere on the 112th spot in the rankings.

Re: Donna Vekic

In other words, she's a win away from AO MD.

Re: Donna Vekic

Just one more win and I'm satisfied

Garcia is tricky player, she has three wins this year against top 100 players, but she has many defeats against players ranked below 150. Hope that Donna will improve her game tomorrow.
