Re: Donna Vekic

Donna really knows how to use social media well. She keeps all her fans really informed. Wish I could say the same for one or two of my other faves.

I think when she starts to become more widely known she will gain new fans really fast.

Re: Donna Vekic

Well I've got Donna pencilled in for a breakout year in 2013, so we'll probably be testing that theory soon.

Re: Donna Vekic

I'm glad that Donna's going to let us know of her schedule, I was confused because her website has her next event as the Australian Open. I think maybe she'll play Shenzen and/or Hobart as warm-ups, she'd be in qualifying for both and I don't think those lists have been released yet.

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

Um what? She's not playing Hopman Cup The teams were announced ages ago. I can't even remember the last time Croatia was in it to be honest, I guess the Ancic siblings in 2007?

If a team withdrew and she's playing I'm sooo going. I live in Perth So I hope she's playing

Would it be announced on her official FB page if it weren't confirmed? It's possible, but I doubt that. Really looking forward to see the line-up. It would be a huge thing for her experience to play such an event with no pressure of earning or defending points. Plus, some doubles action could do her good.

Re: Donna Vekic

Yeah I just looked at her Facebook page, it definitely looks official. A team must have withdrawn. Usually though if a player withdraws, they just replace them with another player. So I don't get what happened?

I've already bought tickets to several sessions but might have to book some more if Donna's playing

This means Donna will be televised a lot which is great, with three singles and three mixed doubles matches. She will get a LOT of attention/coverage, it happened to Robson a few years back when she was a similar age. This is going to be huge for Donna, definitely the biggest moment in her career. I just hope she's prepared for it.

The Perth Arena is one of the best in the world, the court even has a retractable roof. Definitely one of the biggest outside of the Grand Slams along with IW/Miami.

I was already so excited that Djokovic was playing, now this is icing on the cake.
