Re: Donna Vekic

She won 62 36 62 Shouldn't really be struggling with these scrubs, though.

Re: Donna Vekic

She hasn't been playing competitive matches for about 3 weeks now so she probably just needs a bit of time to adjust. Practice court is a whole other animal compared to tournaments. Still, here's hoping for some more convincing results soon. Good luck kid!

Re: Donna Vekic

Next is Kucova, she defeated (8) Bychkova very easy . . . Donna will have to play much better than first two matches.

Re: Donna Vekic

Nice to see an easy match for a change; no need to waste extra energy

Re: Donna Vekic

And she did it

Finally some good stuff after problems is first and second round. In semifinal Donna will play against Vera Dushevina or Yuliya Beyzelgimer.

Just about 60 minutes on court today

Re: Donna Vekic

Nice work today

For a place in the final she'll probably have to play even better, cause both of her potential opponents are former top 100 players (with Dushevina almost inside top 30 at one point), both are very experienced compared to Donna, especially Dushevina eventhough she is younger of the two. She has a hardcourt WTA title under her belt (from Istanbul of all places) and two more appearances in the WTA finals, also on hardcourt. Both her and Beygelzimer are struggling lately but this doesn't mean a walk in the park for Donna by any stretch of imagination. Beygelzimer has exactly one win since late January this year and that one came against Pegula on green clay a month ago while Dushevina hasn't made a win since mid February in Doha against Jugic-Salkic, but has been playing only WTA events until this one.

So I hope Donna will be sharp and won't underestimate either of these dames in distress, cause I think she has a shot, but she'll probably have to work quite hard to get it.


P. S. On a side note, according to WTA Donna comes into this tournament with 95 professional matches played so far; meaning, if she reaches the final she is at 100.

Re: Donna Vekic

Starting to assume Donna didn't take her first two matches seriously. Very easy win against a potentially tricky opponent

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