Re: Donna Vekic

It's official, no sign of any sort of injury - she just posted a message on her FB. So it was clearly a mental thing, which is slightly worrisome, although at her age it's definately just a part of learning experience. It'll sting, possibly for quite some time, but she'll have to learn how to cope with such situations. Maybe she needs some time away from tennis, just to regroup for the next season.

Re: Donna Vekic

Losses like this are important in Donna's development. She was expected to breeze through this tournament so she had all the pressure on her (unlike Tashkent where she had absolutely nothing to lose). Unfortunately, she was unable to handle it this time around, but a loss like this will only help her become stronger in the long run. We need to realize she is still only 16 and highly inexperienced. There are going to be a lot of ups and downs and a lot of learning experiences. As long as she learns from this loss, she will be fine.

Re: Donna Vekic

Well that's just really disappointing She was obviously doing everything right at the beginning but probably lost focus. It's most likely a similar situation to what happened against Gallovits-Hall at the US Open. Probably no Top 100 now in 2012

Anyway I guess we forget that she's still only 16, no matter what she's had an unbelievable year

Re: Donna Vekic

ouch that's bit ridiculous, thought USO qualifying loss was more than enough for her to learn

Re: Donna Vekic

I missed it Can't seem to find it posted anywhere either. Did anyone manage to catch it and want to explain what she talked about?

Anyway, Petkovic has received a WC for Pune and will be unseeded Hopefully she's not in Donna's quarter because she needs SF to make Top 100 Here's the entry list: http://royalindianopen.com/players.html Morita, Bratchikova, Chang, Date-Krumm and Doi are all the seeded players ranked higher than Donna (I think she's going to be seeded #6). If she plays well, avoids Petkovic and doesn't have another loss of concentration like last week, I think a SF is possible.

Re: Donna Vekic

Seems like reaching the semis in Pune will be a mighty tough task for Donna. But like I said, as long as she ensures AO MD, I'm perfectly fine with the end of this season.
When I saw Petkovic will be playing there, I hoped it's someone else with the same last name, but yes, Andrea had a lot of trouble with injuries this year and obviously wants to get back ASAP so she's taking the challenger route. Let's, however, not underestimate Morita, Date, Bratchikova and the others either.

It's a tough field for our kid. Hope she'll be ready

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna's Daddy is so poor, it even shows in their house on her recent Facebook Post
Anyway, Donna I think has a good shot at a SF Not likely, but achievable
There are many players here though who are lower ranked then her who I thinks he will have trouble with, unlike in Suzhou. For Example, Svitolina, Zheng, Kumkhum, Zhou, Wang, Glushko, Tanasugarn, Ormaechea and of course, Petkovic
