Being ranked 109 could not be enough, especially as some players could push her down in next weeks.
The assumption is that for every player who picks up points in the upcoming tournaments, there's a player who loses points that they couldn't defend from last year.

Re: Donna Vekic

Well there will most likely still be some players withdrawing from the maindraw anyway (at least 3-4) so she should be fine if she wins her next match. I'd rather be 100% sure though and I'm sure Donna would like to be too.

And we'll never be royals (royals). It don't run in our blood, That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz.

...and for every player who withdraws, you can assume one player is coming back with a protected ranking

I agree
I mean, Donna's not known for her Doubles prowess but she has had some good results, including RG Semi

It's probably because, if I'm not mistaken, under the age eligibility rule doubles count separately against a player's maximum number of tournaments.

Either they count tournaments alone (ie doesn't matter what you play in that tournament) or they don't count doubles at all.

But I'm 100% sure playing doubles with singles has no effect for AER.

No, she's allowed up to 12 Singles and 12 Doubles + 4 Merited Increases in both

You know that feeling - happy and satisfied!!! It's just how I feel after my match today. I beat Wongteanchai (THA) 6-0 6-1. Happy to show all my Indian fans my high level of tennis. Great hospitality - great WTA tournament!

Re: Donna Vekic

In the second round Donna will play vs Oksana Kalashnikova who beat Monique Adamczak 75 63 in first round.
I hope we don't have to worry about that match.

Even though I had a day off today, I've been working hard on court in the sunshine with my coach David Felgate! As ever, I've had a lot of media to speak to as well. I don't want this feeling to stop, let's hope it leads to some success...


I don´t think it was posted.
