Re: Donna Vekic

Donna will get a forum one day

As BlueTrees said, I think it's a bad schedule. There are loads of clay court events she can get into. It's her weakest surface, which is only more reason to play these events.

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

I thought the rule used to be the player had to have won a WTA title before they got a forum.

Re: Donna Vekic

Hsieh Su-Wei doesn't have one
Kaia only got one last year from immense pressure.
They have made the rules stricter because I don't think the database can handle too many sub-forums
She will get one one day
Also to have a sub-forum there has to be enough stuff around like highlights, photos etc. and with Donna being a Junior that hasn't really happened yet
In due course though, In Due Course

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Robson has one. But then again, her threads are by far the most active part of the GB section. Sloane also has one without a title or a comparable amount of activity, but making a GS semi final is probably more significant.

Anne Keothavong had a forum until early this year. The rules for subforum creation have certainly changed since this place was set up, which isn't a bad thing.

Should Donna have her own subforum? I'm not sure. This thread's certainly more active than Heather's was and Donna's not achieved much less than the likes of Laura, especially when you take into account her age. However, Laura has had the coverage and attention that Donna has for years now so giving her a subsection wasn't much of a gamble, she's going to get enough traffic in her subsection to make having it worthwhile. Donna's hot now, but for all we know she could end up like Melanie Oudin and drop off the radar by the end of the year. I hope not, both because I like Donna and because I think that people like Donna (i.e. young blood that's doing well) are needed for the health of the tour.

She probably doesn't have room for another clay event. She already played 8 tournaments + merited increases(US Open, AO, Miami and Madrid in few weeks). If you had Istanbul, FO and Wimbledon you are up to 11 out of 12. I imagine she wants to play a grass tournament before Wimbledon.

Re: Donna Vekic

I meant she should've played a clay ITF instead of a hard court ITF in Istanbul.

Thanks. I thought so, cause that's what organisers were announcing last year (probable switch back to red clay).

Yeah but it looks like she doesn't want to. But yes she should have...

Re: Donna Vekic

Or maybe Donna just doesn't have big expectations from clay season
