Re: Donna Vekic

M. Sanchez - A. van Uytvanck 7:6, 4:3* at the moment; the Belgian had a serve for 4:1 in the first and also led 3:1 in the second but can't seem to be able to hold it. Anyway, just glancing at this one from time to time because of Donna, wouldn't hurt if they'd get into a decider...

Re: Donna Vekic

Sanchez it is (won two subsequent games after my previous post). Currently #119, 24 years old, took out Cepelova in R1 in straights, which was her 2nd win over top 100 players this season (also won against Puchkova in IW R1). Has 7 first round losses this year, including last week in the Nottingham challenger (to Doi in straights). In her first 3 professional seasons she played only 3 tournaments (probably because of injuries or something similar). Reached QR3 of US Open last year.

Sounds winnable.

Maria was a US college star (at USC), graduated a couple of years ago, been working her way up the pro rankings since.

Do you think it's possible she was playing so little in her initial years because of college (that would make sense)?

Yes American colleges A) don't let you play professionally at college and B) only let you play tournaments in the holidays. Look at Nicole Gibbs

Sanchez is a good player but not on Grass IMO, not agressive enough :0

Donna in 2

Who did Sanchez beat BTW to make R3

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

Yes, it is mostly because of college.

Re: Donna Vekic

Steve Johnson was a college player too, and he is in top 200 now with 22-23 years.

Re: Donna Vekic

Thanks for the link of Donna's match on Youtube. I wasn't able to watch it and was shocked with the scoreline. Even though Ula wasn't 10% of the player who easily went over Donna in Monterrey, Donna played much better,she was way more agressive. I like the way she reacted when she lost 2 consecutive games in second set. She didn't mind about the result, just going for the winner, grass suits her style definitely. Sanchez was outlasted by Ajla in Midland earlier this year so most certainly it's winnable match. GL Donna

Well, I don't know much about van Uytvanck (don't even know her ranking right now), but I do remember her beating Nara in Fed Cup on an indoor hard last year in Japan, in straights if I recall correctly. So she seems capable of doing damage on faster surfaces.

Yesterday during Donna's match against Radwanska there was a stream of the match Hampton-Keys in the same time from court 2 so maybe there will be tomorrow also...
