Re: Donna Vekic

Not a bad draw. Donna will have to play well, though, as Hlavackova is no pushover--she's a solid top-100 player.

Good luck, Donna!

Re: Donna Vekic

Great draw! Andrea is for sure the favourite but she's very up and down. She reached the fourth round of the US Open and is one of the best doubles players in the world. However her singles results since the US Open have been very poor.

It won't be televised but I'll be there so I'll let you guys know how it goes!

What planet do you live on
Winnable Round 1 due to Hlavackova's form but I am sorry, but the last time Caro lost to someone with like 3 Top 100 wins must have been 5 years ago

Wozniacki's not getting to Rd. 2 anyways.

Did you see how Wozniacki played Round 1 in Brisbane? She was woeful.

Re: Donna Vekic

Guys let's focus on her first round It's a good draw but there's no guarantee she'll win. She'll have to play well

Re: Donna Vekic

This is a rock-solid opposition in R1 and Donna will have to be at 100% if she is to win it. Sure, the draw could've been much worse, but don't be surprised if this turns into a nailbiter.

Hlavackova is not very consistent, that's true, but it's also true that she usually plays very well in Mandatories. Case in point last year in Melbourne she qualified and took a set off Petrova. Also, in Madrid she reached R2 from qualies then lost to Vika, in Wimbledon she lost to Clijsters in R2, while as mentioned earlier, she made R4 in NY by beating Zakopalova, Voskoboeva and Kirilenko, before going out to Serena. Experience is on her side of course, she is no stranger to wins against top 50 opponents, and not to mention that she can utilize her doubles skills and hurt Donna seriously with some of them. She is known to play agressive tennis and therefore is prone to errrors, but when she is on, she is really dangerous. Donna will have to be very tough on the mental side as well, cause she'll be playing a doubles grand slam champion and Olympic medalist.

Too bad we (most probably) won't get to see it.

Re: Donna Vekic

With this draw Donna at least shouldn't have a problem with motivation, cause on top of a chance for 100 points and a nice paycheck, there's also a chance to face her favorite player (Wozniacki) in R2.

Re: Donna Vekic

I think it's more likely she'll face Lisicki in R2.

But she needs to win her R1 match before, and it's not given. Baby steps.

i really doubt Wozniacki is still her favorite player. She said that when Wozniacki was #1, I guess she was just young and amazed.
