Donna plays tommorow at 1 p.m. against Russian Kulichkova. This won't be easy at all since she seems to be talented as well. Also it's interesting because she's the same age as Donna (few months older) and is ranked 60. This year she won 19 matches and lost only 7.
P.S. Iva Mekovec is also in QF and she plays Fabikova.
She'll play Danilina after all, Kazakhstan's world #70, currently at a career-high, one year older than Donna and seeded 10th (they've never played eachother). Donna sure looks like the favorite. Let's hope she justifies this and makes another step forward.
Anyway, even without going further Donna should already be inside top30 once the rankings are updated, a place in the final should get her to around #25 and an eventual title to around #20. In other words, doesn't seem impossible at all that she makes it to the USO as a seeded player!
Getting the title will be tough, this girl is the defending champion, ranked about the same as Donna (actually lower, but was higher at the time of the entry), same age etc. She's also good in doubles, was the runner-up of the French this year.
Already a really good week, but why not make it even better Good luck Donna!
