Re: Donna Vekic

It will also be good for Daddy as the pay checks are actually huge. Like $20,000 for showing up
It will be tough but if she can win a match

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Re: Donna Vekic

This is the Perth Arena which Donna is going to be playing on, three singles matches and three mixed doubles matches. The arena is literally 10-15 minutes drive from my house Still can't believe Donna will be coming here.



You can see some photos here: http://www.novafm.com.au/gallery/inside-perth-arena It's very big

Re: Donna Vekic

This is great. And, it does count towards her age restriction
Cilic will be in Chennai. I hope Dodig plays

ugh, why do they all suck????????

It doesn't count to her age restriction, it's not an event which she can earn ranking points. It's just an exhibition event, although it's arguably the most important exhibition tournament, there's a lot of prize money on offer. Some people say it's the only exhibition that Serena takes seriously

The only negative is she can't get any ranking points But seeing as it doesn't count to her age restriction I guess she can just play an extra tournament later in the year

The eight women who are scheduled to play are: Venus, Ivanovic, Schiavone, Petkovic, Medina Garrigues, Dellacqua, Scheepers and Johansson. Obviously one of those is no longer playing. I think if Donna repeats her Tashkent form she can beat Dellacqua and Johansson, maybe take sets from Scheepers and Medina Garrigues.

A Venus/Donna match would be a dream for tennismaster8820 Probably for Donna too, but her chances would be very slim

Re: Donna Vekic

Well, I'd really like her to play Venus as well. It would be a great chance for her to play one of the best ever, without any risk for her points. Of course, none of the high ranked girls will give it a 100% in this one as it's an exhibition after all, but getting to play against Venus or Ivanovic is still a big deal for Donna. Hope neither of those two pulled out.

Re: Donna Vekic

I'm confused. Have you guys read this article? http://www.glas-slavonije.hr/184119/...enadjenje-2012

What does it say at the bottom? I used Google translate, it seems like she won't be representing Croatia but is just an alternate to step in if a player gets injured. It's not confirmed that she will play. Is this true?

Quote:
ZA NOVU GODINU S VENUS WILLIAMS
Hrvatska nije u ždrijebu, ali Donna će Novu godinu dočekati u Perthu na Hopman Cupu, natjecanju reprezentacija u kojem igraju po jedna tenisačica i tenisač. Tamo će biti u statusu rezerve. Ako se neka tenisačica ozlijedi ili iz bilo kojeg razloga otkaže meč, Osječanka će upasti umjesto nje. Recimo, ako Venus Williams bude imala problema, Donna će zaigrati s Johnom Isnerom, a moguć scenarij je i da igra pod zastavom Srbije s Novakom Đokovićem. Naravno, samo ako, ne daj Bože, Ana Ivanović bude imala bilo kakav problem i odluči se na otkaz. - Bila bi mi velika čast igrati s Đokovićem - sportski je rezonirala mlada Osječanka.

Re: Donna Vekic

you're right. she is only a reserve in Hopman Cup. If any woman withdraws, she will replace her (and play for the withdrawing player's country).

Re: Donna Vekic

That article was posted three days ago though, weird how we only found out about this a few hours ago.

I knew this was too good to be true Oh well, I guess I might see her practice or something And who knows, maybe someone will withdraw It has happened many times before.

I just don't understand why they're flying over an alternate? They've never done that before. Usually if someone is injured they replace them with a player from that country.

Re: Donna Vekic

Hopefully Ivanovic gets injured (no offence), then there will be my Djokovic/Vekic dream team I think Donna would feel too much pressure though
