I wonder if we should look forward to that too much, cause it probably wouldn't be free of charge.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna is now most likely in Australian Open MD as Putintseva failed to win in Dubai and is not playing Ankara. I would expect Elina to overtake her in Ankara in a fortnight and probably Puig, but if Birnerova doesn't make the final, she will be in unless no one withdraws

EDIT: Putintseva made MD as she climbed higher than I thought. Now only 2 of Svitolina, Puig and Birnerova have to do well to push her out

Day off! I sure know how to rest after a tough week. Enjoying in the pool, massage and beach walk before starting a new practice week in Dubai. Also going to have a cheeky BBQ tonight. And ...today forgot my sun cream :-)

Re: Donna Vekic

At 109 she's pretty much guaranteed a spot in the main draw, hopefully she can get a decent draw and not someone ridiculous.

Maybe she should get Stosur in 1R.

Re: Donna Vekic

Call me crazy, but I actually wouldn't mind it if she would draw a seeded player in R1. OK, not necessarily Azarenka, but someone who could provide her with a learning experience and someone who would be a big challenge for her. Why? Because she usually chooses to play weaker events and in those she is rarely in a chance to face someone really good. Her objective is #1, so she should, from time to time, face someone who is close to the top of the game, just so that she gets the idea how far she still has to go. I understand that valuable points are at stake, but she can make up for those in some other events, and she is not defending that much after all, in the first half of the year. Not to mention that she would have an open path to quite far into the tournament if she would somehow scrape a win. Now, who would be a good draw...

I hope she draws Cadantu and then maybe some higher seed for round 2.
I agree that whoever she draws it can't be that bad, if it's a great player she will get valuable experience and if she gets someone not so good she would have a chance to win and earn big points!
It's very exciting time.
We'll just have to wait for some MD withdrawal for Donna to get in, probably we'll know it very late but surely she will be in MD.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna seems really likeable and I liked what I saw of her game in Tashkent. I hope she gets into the AO MD and has a good year next year.

Re: Donna Vekic

I'd personally prefer beatable opponent in R1 and then seeded player in R2. This way in ideal scenario she would get both tons of points, as well as experience.
