finally we have a talented player who is not a head case!
though i love the headcases
Totally agree with the things in boldface! She saved another BP in the first game of the 2nd set and takes the lead. Absolutely no reason for her to fall apart, she is on level terms with a quality player.

I agree. She was a big underdog going into this match but so far it's quite close.

Re: Donna Vekic

Four points in a row for Vesnina at two BP's for Donna. Ouch. But still, they're on level terms in this set. No need to panic.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna is clearly playing well and taking advantage of whatever Vesnina's giving her but she just cannot seem to break. That's not a bad thing, especially since this something most people wish their young favourites could do at 16. I certainly do.

Re: Donna Vekic

And Vesnina takes the first game point and saves Donna's 5 BP of the match to go up 4:2.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna had many chances but obviously her return needs lot of work still.
I think that's by far weakest part of her game.
Good showing anyway.

Re: Donna Vekic

Broken to 15.

Put a fork in her, she's done.

Re: Donna Vekic

the momentum is never on Donna's side, i could definitely see a single conversion make the difference, but unfortunately today is just a bad day for her
