Re: Donna Vekic

Exciting! So will it just be one question? I wonder if it'll be about Donna's career or more to do with something off-court.

Btw Donna definitely didn't write that message. No way her English is that bad

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.

Re: Donna Vekic

I think Donna will move up to 106 next week so we all need to watch Dubai draw carefully! I think the way the draw looks she should be safe at 108, but there is still a chance that she could get bumped out of MD. The 1st round matches will tell us a lot about her chances.

Re: Donna Vekic

It will be better for her if she starts from qualifying. Those extra points would not hurt plus getting some practise before playing a Main Draw match will be in her favour.

Re: Donna Vekic

Either way is fine, but I'd bet Donna herself would prefer to be in MD directly.

Re: Donna Vekic

I'm going to the Australian Open so I hope she gets direct entry into the maindraw because I want to see her first round. I won't be there for qualifying and I have a bad feeling she might not make it through, like at the US Open.

I also hope she doesn't draw a Top 10 player (aside from the obvious reasons) because I'm probably only getting ground passes the first few days and don't want her to be on RLA or Hisense

Anyway after $75K Dubai this week we'll know She should make it in though

Re: Donna Vekic

At this point, both Pliskovas could pass her and Kristyna just needs 1st round win to do so I believe. Cepelova and Date could also pass her, but since Cepelova plays Karolina Pliskova 1st round, this eliminates one from contention. And since Date, Cepelova and Karolina P are in the same quarter, this helps narrow the chances for them. Svitolina and Putintseva are also in the same quarter so they both cant pass Donna and I believe they would need to likely beat Jovanowski to pass Donna. So all in all, Donna has a great shot. If Dulgheru doesn't use protected ranking, Donna will almost definitely be in MD.

Re: Donna Vekic

2 big matches tomorrow could almost guarantee Donna gets in- if Karolina Pliskova beats Cepelova and Dushevina beats Svitolina, Donna should make it no matter what else happens. But I miscalculate these things a lot, so not 100% sure of that.

Re: Donna Vekic

I forgot about Julia Cohen who also could pass Donna in theory but I think that's not likely.

Edit- no, not even mathematically possible for Cohen to pass Donna, so no worries there (not that anyone was probably worried about this anyways)!

Re: Donna Vekic

Don't get ahead of yourselves folks, cause we can't know how many players will skip AO for all kinds of reasons. I'm pretty confident Donna will play MD, cause it's generally a slam with the lowest ranking required to make it in.

Re: Donna Vekic

Yep, I'm pretty sure shes got it in the bag as well. I just checked and it looks like both Pliskovas are defending points from a 25k from last year as well, so this helps as well. Actually both Cepelova and Karolina P have 34 points and Kristyna P has 14 points, but not sure what their 16th best result is, but either way, this helps Donna's chances as well.

I think that at one of the last few times it was even 116, which says a lot. Of course it can also be 108, but that hardly ever happens in Melbourne - all top 108 players would have to sign up in order for that to happen, if I understand everything right.
