Re: Donna Vekic

Hard luck Donna, great week, close final match too, Dani played a quality match and deserved it, Donna's serve is really a nice weapon though.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna didn't bring her best today, and the shoulder tweak added a mental burden, but it was still a great week for her overall.

Congrats, Donna!

Re: Donna Vekic

Amazing week, and only good things should come from this!! Donna is an amazing prospect for WTA in the future. Plus grass is tricky to play on and she has a real knack for it!

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.

Re: Donna Vekic

Great week for Donna. I'm not too disappointed. She has exceeded most people's expectations already.

Re: Donna Vekic

Unfortunate
A good fight in the second though
I hope she can keep the form going into Wimbledon
New Career High of 64

I know I will receive so much hate but I do find it funny that Donna is almost Top 50 with Main Draw wins at only 5 WTA Tournaments and more than 1 win at only 2 events (although she did make the final at both which says something about her consistency, something we can't see at some tournaments)

Re: Donna Vekic

For those of you who watched her Tashkent final, how do you think her performance today compares? After giving it some thought, I think Hantuchova deserves more credit for taking charge of more of the rallies (too much running by Donna). I do think it's handy that Donna can pull the reins in and be more consistent (like against Sanchez), but to beat a great ball-striker like Dani, Donna should have tried to dictate more, or at least get the first hit in a few more rallies.

Edit: After reading my own assessment, I even forget that Donna is about to turn 17. A lot of this will come with experience.

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna

It definitely sucks to lose another WTA final. But she can be proud of her week, to reach two WTA finals as a 16 year old is a great achievement.

She didn't play a bad match, just too many errors at important moments. She almost won the first set, who knows what could've happened if she managed to win it.

Let's hope she gets a good draw at Wimbledon. The grass definitely suits her game.

I watched both of her finals, Begu was in control of the match because she was serving unbelievably well throughout both sets( 74% of first serves in), Dani on the other hand served well but she was on top of every rally,hitting through the ball very good, and she didn't give many chances Donna to dominate, also Donna wasn't good on return like the rest of the week which made her job even harder than it was. Not to mention that Donna had to play qualies in Tashkent and was too tired to put some resistance.

Re: Donna Vekic

To bad she lost, but I think that she is not dissapointed( she doesn't have to be) cause she made it into top 70, pumped up her self esteem before SW19, hope she gets a decent draw Now we know if she draws an unseeded player in first round, and winnable seed in second, she can do some real damage if she gets into round 3 Only tournaments where she had 2 wins were succesfull( Tashkent, Birmingham)
