Re: Donna Vekic

Seems promising really. Njiric isn't that much better in the junior rankings eventhough she's 3 years ahead, and she's also quite good in the seniors already. So if we can judge based on this comparison...there it goes, I just jinxed her. Oh well...

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna's ranking holds at #82 (her career-high) this week. She's the fifth-highest ranked player born in 1996 or later, and Donna is the youngest of them:

35. Christina Makarova (USA)
46. Indy de Vroome (NED)
52. Barbara Haas (AUT)
66. Domenica Gonzalez (ECU)
82. Donna Vekic (CRO)

Re: Donna Vekic

^^ Thanks for the info. Her stats this year look really nice, of the three events that she's played, she won one and played the finals of the remaining two, losing both in three sets. Sure, those were not against the best juniors in the world, but still. Hope she starts winning more against those higher ranked juniors soon, her biggest win so far this year is against a girl ranked at #90 it seems. She is the youngest one inside the top80, but there are girls born the same year with a much better ranking currently (some even around #30).

Keep up the good work girl!

Re: Donna Vekic

Just found the article from the day before yesterday about Donna published in a regional newspaper:

http://www.glas-slavonije.hr/vijest....VIJESTI=137591

Basically talks about Donna switching from the IMG agency to Lagardere (for those who might not understand the language).

Re: Donna Vekic

In R2 Donna beat Kathinka VON DEICHMANN 7-5 3-6 6-4. At least she won, but it was too close considering Von Deichmann is ranked #254 in juniors.

In the QF, Donna plays the #7 seed, Katy DUNNE (GBR). Good luck! Hope she can win b/c this is an excellent chance to make yet another final, since the other two seeds in the top half are out.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna also won in doubles R1: KORASHVILI (UKR) / VEKIC (CRO) defeated JAEGER (SUI) / REY (SUI) 6-0 Retired.

In the QF, they play the #4 seeds. Good luck, girls!

Re: Donna Vekic

frankopan (croatian) is menager of bernard tomic. so, he is great. interesting, he said that young croatian borna coric is as good player like bernard was in his age or like andy murray in same age.
we have such a bright future: cilic, tomljanovic, coric, vekic etc.
