Re: Donna Vekic

She would be a good ambassador
I can't believe she is only leaving now
She will not cope with the heat although she has been frequenting Uzbekistan
BlueTrees, at the new Perth Arena, is there more than 1 court, or will she not really be able to practice there???

Re: Donna Vekic

In today's Sportske Novosti there is small article how there was invitation for Donna Vekic and Marin Cilic for Hopman Cup but Marin had to decline it because of previously made deal with Chennai so Marin and Donna will have to hope for it in some otehr year.
Nothing is mentioned that Donna is alt there in case someone withdraws.

There is at least one practice court, here is a photo of Ivanovic practising on it. I guess Donna will practice on this court every day

Re: Donna Vekic

Well, week 1 for Croats won't be very exciting as it seems, both Petra and Mirjana have pulled out of Shenzhen and Donna is just an alternate in Perth so probably won't get to play. It's a bummer. A few days ago everything seemed much more interesting.

Anyway, really looking forward to Donna's first placement in a grand slam draw. I'm playing the "what if" movie in my head...like, what if she draws (fill in the blank)...but waiting is the worst part

If Donna were a typical Croatian player, the more appropriate question would be "what if she pulls out?"

Re: Donna Vekic

Just finished my first practice at the brand new Perth Arena. Its so cool. Practised with Petkovic, and from tomorrow have to be a little patient and wait for a chance for to play such a big event !

They trained on main court !

Re: Donna Vekic

Petkovic is injured. I am very sad because of her. She was crying on the court. It is probably something serious (right knee injury).
That means that Donna will probably play next match for Germany.
I am happy that Donna will play (probably) but wish quick recovery to Petkovic.

Re: Donna Vekic

This means that Donna would get to play Schiavo on Wednesday and Ana on Friday (+ mixed doubles); it would be an awesome experience for her. Hope Petko's injury isn't too serious, she's had a lot of injury issues last year so deserves a bit of luck in that department.

Re: Donna Vekic

My Petko... lol... Hope you can recover soon. But for Donna, it's a good experience. She can play against some top players with no pressure. Come on!

"Tournament director said organizer may attempt to fly in a replacement German player if Petkovic can not continue " http://m.couriermail.com.au/sport/te...40585959b61df5
