Re: Donna Vekic

too bad she slipped there a bit in the end to get broken twice, but i still think this was a positive showing for her! she just needs some more of these matches against top players, and she'll figure out how to break them, and how to win.

Re: Donna Vekic

Overall a very nice tournament, although I'm sure this will sting for a day or two. She did have her chances, but was never really in a position to get herself close enough to winning a set. Of course, an excellent showing and a valuable experience, playing a top 30 player in a Premier Mandatory event. Looking forward to her next one.

Yeah she certainly did. But 0/5 on break points doesn't look good. It is hard to judge without knowing what happenned on those break points

no idea. but IMO it might be good for Donna to play some ITF 50k and 100k, with this level of play she would gave a great chance to win some of these...

Re: Donna Vekic

Not an unexpected result but Donna has had a good tournament. It's rare these days for someone so young to achieve this success.

Re: Donna Vekic

Excellent result for first premier event in Donna's career

I expected closer score against Vesnina, but it doesn't matter, Elena is 10 years older and she obviously knows how to handle younger inexperienced players.

Nice 80 points for Donna, new CH ranking and she is our number one player, really fantastic for 16 years old kid

Re: Donna Vekic

So pity result. Donna had many chances to break Elena's serve. But she all lost them. However, Donna has got 80 points

Donna

What's her next tournament?

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

Interesting how people never read any of the previous posts. First Bluetrees asks the same question, gets an answer 9 posts ago, then Svizac two posts later tells Bluetrees that he doesn't know the answer, and now another poster comes up with the same question

So for those who'll wonder the same in the following days:

DONNA NEXT PLAYS IN MONTERREY.
