Re: Donna Vekic

Isn't the dress from the players party a bit much (or a bit not enough) for a girl her age? Maybe I'm just old-fashioned in more ways than one, but I wonder what's the image she's trying to portrait dressing like this. Of course, she shouldn't dress like a nun, but this seems like something you'd expect on a girl 5-6 years older. I know tennis is business and that sex sells, but Donna is still a minor and will remain to be one for quite some time.

I agree... about her being a minor. Some people still don't even know she's 16.
They think she's in her 20s...

I just hope Donna doesn't get too distracted by the fame.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Nothing wrong with the dress. Doesn't show off too much. Girls wear much less to school formals

But, still, dress has got a sleeves. It could have been much worse: without sleeves.
Actually, they are transparent but still sleeves. ... hahaha ...
And, yes, it would be much better vice versa...to change clothes with Majoli... hahaha
I don't mind anything actually...just kidding.

BTW...I wanted Sharapova to play with Donna. She will play with Petra in a second round...I hope

Re: Donna Vekic

It is not good to only concentrate on the player looks. In this she looks so badly, like a drag act, the dress is not too much the make up is from a child

Re: Donna Vekic

OK, enough about Donna's looks. It's amazing that if she wins her next match, she'll be among the top 100 women tennis players in the world. Exactly two years ago she was playing a G3 junior event

Re: Donna Vekic

Second match on C20 so as expectedly no cameras. But I'm actually surprised with the fact that while Dodig vs Wu is placed on C8 (one of the show courts, along with RLA, MCA, HA, C2, C3 and C6) the match between (27) Safarova and Lucic is placed on C22

Anyway, first both of our players on day 1 go out faster than you can say Rod Laver Arena, and now we don't get to see Donna's match... So Donna, there's no other way around this then to make it through to round two

The AO has branded itself as "the Grand Slam of Asia/Pacific" so it shouldn't be surprising that they put Wu on a show court.

You mean there are three other matches you want to see as much as or more than Donna's?!?!

I'm curious: which ones are they?

Re: Donna Vekic

Jovanovski, McHale, Safarova and Donna, along with Giorgi and Cirstea (who I both saw today) are my favourite players in the draw. And they're all on at the same time I'm so mad I'm definitely most interested in Donna's though because it's her Grand Slam debut

Re: Donna Vekic

Guys from Croatia, see you on forum at 2:30 AM or you are going to sleep then?

I think I will make a 0.5 L of coffee and enjoy the early snowy morning
