Re: Donna Vekic

Re: Donna Vekic

All of these photos are good, but every single ad on the webpage it takes me to is of some kind of hardcore pornography

Took me by surprise.

Despite not making many winners, she's still an agressive baseliner, and she doesn't only win matches by waiting the opponent's mistake, though she can do that at times also.

This
She played a really good match and high first serve percentage of what I watched
Even though Cirstea was not playing well, it really took an effort by Donna to win by that scoreline given all the rain delays
I really hope she can beat Rybarikova

Something interesting about Donna is that she seems to play so much better against good opponents than bad ones: think Istanbul 50K plus every 25K she played compared to this tournament and Tashkent

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

Re: Donna Vekic

The pop ups .

Great result for Donna. Seems that Sorana played awfully though.

Next match against Magdalena who is also very comfortable on grass, I think Donna has a decent chance though, I think she is very comfortable on quick surfaces too and if she serves well she can give lots of people problems.

Donna does seem to play better against better players and worse against worse ones- she should enter as high tier events as possible then. Playing lower level and high level players often require slightly different skills. For instance, against a strong player taking risks may well pay off, but against lower players you need to try to find a safer way to defeat them since you ought to be able to win.

5 ft 10 1/2 i.e. 179 cm.

P. S. Whoever wins will have a very tough task at hand; Hantuchova will probably face Lisicki in the other semi...

Well, Native Americans had the knowledge to call in the rain - I wonder if they knew how to chase it away as well... Any Cherokee or Navajo around here?

Re: Donna Vekic

Lisicki and Riske are playing, so Donna should be on the court soon
