Re: Donna Vekic

Well, all things considered I'm quite impressed by this scoreline. Well done Donna, you proved me wrong (in a way)

Lost the match in Madrid vs. Chanelle Scheepers, RSA 67(7) 26. Sadly didn't use my 3 set points , but on the other hand showed that my game is developing in the right way!!


3 set points

A. AGE ELIGIBILITY RULE
Player Development requirements and the Age Eligibility Rule (“AER”)
are applicable to competition in Professional Tennis Tournaments
worldwide, including all WTA Tournaments and ITF Women’s Circuit
events that receive ranking points.
1. Definitions
a. Competition in a Professional Tennis Tournament
For the purposes of this rule, competition in a Professional Tennis
Tournament is defined as participation in the singles and/or doubles
Main Draw, or the singles and/or doubles Qualifying Draw of
a WTA Tournament or ITF Women’s Circuit event. Each
Tournament in which a player earns ranking points (singles and/or
doubles) counts towards a player’s allotment of Tournaments
under the AER. However, participation in the draws of the ITF
Women’s Circuit events in which a player does not earn ranking
points does not constitute competition in a Professional Tennis
Tournament under the AER.
b. Age
For the purposes of this rule, a player’s age is determined by her
age as of the date of start of a Tournament’s singles Main Draw.

A player 18 years old or older no longer is subject to Part A of this
rule but is required to continue participating in Player Development
(Part B) until she receives notification of graduation from a WTA
representative.

So does that mean that if she was 13 at the start of the tournament but turned 14 by the end she would be allowed to play the tournament...
I find it funny for ITF Juniors that someone could be born on January the First in Australia and get a full whole year of Juniors ahead of someone born on the 31st of December in Europe even if they are technically older

Re: Donna Vekic

Btw, I just have noticed that Donna has W-L record 76-24 in seniors! Quite impressive % of wins in relation to losses. And for 16 year old!

Re: Donna Vekic

Scheepers is now in MD and beat Jankovic there so she seems to be in form.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna hopefully gets some soft draw at RG to get some clay win this year.
I believe she will be fine on clay after few seasons pass.

Re: Donna Vekic

She got soft in Melbourne, probably luck isn't gonna be again on her side. But yes, it would be great if she could win a round.

Re: Donna Vekic

Junior players can play more tournaments than in age egilibity limit but they cannot get points and money for those tournaments.

I always thought this was the case. And I am pretty sure the same rules apply for them as for amateurs in that she would have all her expenses payed up to the point where they exceed her prize money

This could be good if for example she was going to do a Linz Luzembourg combo. She plays Linz without it counting, sees where she is at and if she feels in god form she can play in Luxembourg

Anyway, at the end of the year she will have 20 tournaments so it shouldn't be an issue as she shouldn't really be playing more than that a year at her age
