As far as I know you are right, unfortuantelly, that's why I said I'd rather watch that one (but it's not on a tv court).

Yeah, Marin should win comfortably while this should be good match.
I hope Dodig will make 2nd week. He can beat Gasquet and him. But you never know with Ivan.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna is probably sleeping by now, ahead of the big day...that is, assuming she can fall asleep

Some 14-ish hours to go

Re: Donna Vekic

I'll be up, but I'm not sure we have to be ready that early (or I'm secretly hoping )...?

Also, considering all the other matches that should be taking place at the same time, Eurosport would have to be crazy not to show it from start to finish. They show one men's and one women's match parallel on their two main channels anyway, so I'm guessing they won't be showing much of Cilic, at least not until Donna and Woz end their match.

11-ish hours to go

Re: Donna Vekic

i'm on eastern u.s. time...don't know if I have a late night in me. i stayed up to 4am when dodig/cilic were on tv (i was actually going to go to sleep, but donna's match was still going on when they started). it's tough since i have to be up at 8am for work...

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

I know what you mean, Aussie events are brutal on people in the States...but maybe you'll handle this one as it could start around 11 PM your time and probably end by 1 AM, so still not crazy late. Besides, you can miss a day of work I mean, don't tell me you'll miss this match

Think I got you hooked now

Re: Donna Vekic

Hopefully match starts at 5am CET.
That would suit me the most!

Re: Donna Vekic

I might have to set the alarm. It follows the Murray match so a good chance Brit ES will show it.

I believe it'll be around 5 honestly, cause the first match is scheduled for 1 and it's a women's match, so it should be done by 2:30 probably (with warm-up it won't start before 1:10). After them Murray plays his match, so they'd start around 3 (including warm-up) and probably be done by 5, assuming Murray doesn't allow a surprise development in that one. They might be even done by 4:30 though, which would get Donna's match underway by 5.

Anyway, bumped into another article about Donna today, her coach said that he didn't see some big talent in her at an early age, like so many coaches tend to say about their prospects. He says that what he saw was a kid willing to work hard and stay disciplined. It was interesting to read something as honest as that. Now let's see if the hard work and discipline will be enough for a sensation

Re: Donna Vekic

Can't wait for her match against Wozniacki!!

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