Re: Donna Vekic

In the QF, Donna beat Katy DUNNE, the #7 seed, 6-2 2-6 6-2

In the SF, she plays Sabina LUPU. Lupu is unseeded, but she beat the #1 seed in R1. By the way, Donna is the highest seed left in the SF (the other three players are #8 and two unseeded), so this is an excellent chance for her.

In the doubles QF, KORASHVILI/VEKIC beat the #4 seeds, 7-5 7-5. They now play the #2 seeds for a place in the final.

Good luck, Donna! Regardless, with these wins, she'll move up to a new CH ranking next week of around #65 (currently #81). And she's still so young!

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna Vekic(3) defeats. Katy Dunn(7) 6-2 2-6 6-2

Nice win again now shes up to the semis against #151 of the junior ranking Sabina Lupu.

Seriously guys following her results I definatelyy think this is veery impressive for a 14 y.o.. I mean her previous 3 tournaments she either end up as the finalist twice or the winner once in those G3 events.
Now this one is G2 and she has a great opportunity to make the final again.
Anyway well see a new career high next week.
I think shes definately a girl with a bright future.

One of those three events was actually a Grade 2. Also, in those three events, she won the doubles in one and reached the final of a second one but lost in a walkover.

By the way, Donna has now won her last eight singles matches in a row and 16 of her last 18.

She's definitely a very bright prospect for Croatian women's tennis!

Re: Donna Vekic

Yes it is too early to judge, but it is always fascinating to know of certain stars before they become really famous. I hope she can live up to the promise.

Re: Donna Vekic

Wonderful to see her in another semifinal! What I particularly like about Donna's results, is that they're not coming in patches, like, one nice result every few months. Her results come in strings, and that's a very important part of becoming a great player - being able to maintain a high level for extended periods of time. Sure, she's yet to prove herself on the biggest junior stages (I think she hasn't played a junior slam so far), but these results are encouraging. Similar (but even more impressive) strings of junior results were made by Lucic, while Tomljanovic had some, but only when she was about a year older than Donna is now (most of her junior results were "patchy"). But then, Iva Majoli has never had much of a junior career and neither have the Williams sisters so...

Anyway, good luck Donna, don't blow this chance in the semis!

Re: Donna Vekic

Don't be so sure in Donna's victory in this match.Her opponent maybe is unseeded but she is 3 years older than Donna and she already plays pro tennis so her junior ranking isn't so good as it was.The fact that she beat #1 seed is good reason for alarm.

Re: Donna Vekic

Victoryyy She beat Lupu 6-2 6-2.. holy moly 4th straight final.
Great job Donna, great job.
Unfortunately had a tough loss in doubles 1-6 6-2 11-9.
Anyway those are great results for Donna.

Re: Donna Vekic

Excellent win by Donna! It's too bad she lost in doubles but singles is where the big ranking points are. We can expect a nice jump in the rankings for Donna next week, to a new career-high (how crazy that some 14-year old girls already have careers!).

Re: Donna Vekic

OMG! She won the final against King 7-5 6-4.
First G2 event win. God Im so happy and proud of her, she really seems to be a promising girl.
She will move up the rankings like a comet after this win.
Great tournament. : )
