Re: Donna Vekic

I don't have high expectations for grass season. There is possibility that it will end like RG. Only one tournament on grass before Wimbledon (with strong field) with big chances of losing in first-second round and then comes Wimbledon where she will depend on draw.

I don't have any worries about her game on hard courts and I can't wait to see what she can do on grass. I would be very happy if she could win one match in Birmingham and one in Wimbledon.

Re: Donna Vekic

130 points would be very nice, and after her birthday she will basically play without thinking about AER.

Re: Donna Vekic

I forgot to say one thing. I think that Donna IMPROVED her game. If you remember her backhand from one year ago and compare it to today, there is a huge difference, it is much stronger and it is not such a big weak spot for Donna no more.

Can't wait to see what will grass season bring, I think she should play next week 75K to have more matches on gras, but it is too late now.

Re: Donna Vekic

I don't think she'll win a round at Wimbledon as even though she is obviously better on Grass than Clay, I am not sure if she is quite good enough yet...
I do think he can win 1 or 2 matches in Birmingham though
Her ranking will be lower by the end of the year though unless she can defend her Tashkent Points which would be a massive ask...

Re: Donna Vekic

You never know, she can play Bratchikova, Rus, Duque Marino or somebody like that in R1.

But how she was good to win R1 at AO then?

This`and she doesn't necessarily have to defend those Tashkent points. She can get the points somewhere else.

Re: Donna Vekic

2012 points:

1st half 150
2nd half 470


2013 points:

1st half 282
2nd half ???


From this perspective things don't look bad at all.

I don't think she was
Rus at Wimbledon is a harder win than Hlavackova at Aus Open given how she was playing

She obviously doesn't read it: unless she only subscribes to my posts and thinks I hate her

Re: Donna Vekic

Rus was just example, because she's completely out of form and likes clay more.
But there are many players she can beat in Wimbledon draw:
Putintseva, Bratchikova, Duan, Maria, Dolonc, Cabeza...

I see your point but percentage wise, I think she is more likely to play someone she can't beat
But she has been really lucky in the past with draws

I'm sure she does...she knows that few people here dislike her, she's the type who reads everything about her on Internet I'm sure

We love you Donna

Ah poor Donna, we all know whose posts she read here.
It's free forum so any troll can post in any thread it wishes.
