Re: Donna Vekic

^^ Definately. I sure hope she makes a sensation here (cause beating just about anyone would be a small miracle for her), but we all know the chances are slim - based on her pro debut. But looking forward to this tournament anyway...

Re: Donna Vekic

She can play without any expectations and no pressure and maybe surprise someone but whatever happen this will be great experience for her.

Re: Donna Vekic

In Zagreb R1, she plays a qualifier, Zoric, who's ranked almost 600 but has a CH of 388. It's going to be very tough for Donna.

Re: Donna Vekic

It's obviously too soon to expect anything from her, except gaining experience. She'll start winning sooner or later, it's tough to break the ice on the pro circuit.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna might not be tearing up the pro circuit (yet), but she looks like a very cute girl:



Good luck to her in her career!

Re: Donna Vekic

made the finals of a g3 and then the finals of a g2 the week after
up to 178 in the junior rankings, not including the points that she won at the g2
kind of wish she was play AO instead...still, very nice for someone who is only 14

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

Re: Donna Vekic

There's more than enough time for her to develop properly. It's great to see her doing so well (she's 172 in juniors actually), not to mention that there's just one girl younger than her and ranked higher (by some 30 spots). Donna is second best Croat in the junior rankings right now, behind Njiric who's ranked #50, but three years older.

But honestly, I'm scared to base my expectations on junior results when it comes to our girls - experience has taught me better...

Re: Donna Vekic

she will be at around 106. spot and will play on one more grade 3 for couple of days. she is now 5th in her generation and the youngiest in top 110.
you can find her on youtube, she is tall.
there is also one more talent like her, ana konjuh born in late december of 1997

Re: Donna Vekic

3 finals in a row plus title and final in doubles, great work. she will be the youngiest girl in top 100. she developes very well. her coach is david felgate, ex coach of henman and vaidisova.

Re: Donna Vekic

In the final Donna plays Kulichkova. She beat Donna in last week's final but it was very close: 75 67(4) 57. Here's hoping for a different result this week!

Either way, Donna will reach a new CH ranking and break into the top 100 next week. She'll be ~85 if she wins and ~90 if she loses.
