Btw folks, what do you predict for Paris? What would you be happy with? It is her very first slam, but from what she showed on the pro circuit lately...? I'd be quite happy with R3, and I'd be really happy with anything better than that (QF or more). A lot will depend on the draw, of course, cause given her lack of activity on the junior tour lately, her ranking didn't change for months now, and she could face the top seed in R1.
Who knows...maybe we'll see another surprise from Donna...btw on the new wta ranking list Donna is # 991 with 10 points???When will points from Zagreb be calculated?Obviously next week???

Yes, points from 10k and 25k events (10 000 and 25 000 $ prize money) are added 2 weeks after the start of the tournament in question i.e. 8 days after the finish.

No it'not.For example Monica Puig is #6 in the junior competition and she is already #313 in senior competition.Donna has never played against player so high on the wta list never the less she played in senior competition.In junior RG there will be players that are so good that they can easily be in top 400 in the senior competition,girls that are 3-4 years older than Donna.

Everything is possible I think that QF would not be a big surprise if she will have a decent draw.

I'd change that "must" into "could" - we have to remember that the French will be her very first time playing a slam and that she's not seeded, so it would be unreasonable to expect too much. She could also be nervous and shaky, cause this will probably be much more exciting for her than even playing those 25k professional events. After all, those who do great in junior slams get global media coverage, interest of potential sponsors etc., so a lot is at stake. Those two will not be just great tests of her technical skill, but also of her mental strenght.

Of course, I used a wrong verb maybe she will play on some court that will be coverd by tv in the later stage of the RG (if she gets there) so we can watch online

Re: Donna Vekic

As expected, Donna surged up the rankings this week. She moved up over 150 spots, from 991 to 835.

Welcome to the top 900, Donna!
