Great tournament. : )
Anyone have any idea just what "like a comet" might mean in terms of actual numbers? Rankings come out on Monday, right? Oh, congrats Donna, great job once again

Re: Donna Vekic

Great job Donna!!!It's very important for her to go up in the ranking because Roland Garros is very close and it would be very good to avoid the qualifications and first couple of seeded girls.I can't wait for her's debut at the grand slams!

Around #52 (currently #81). That's a nice jump!

She'll also become the fourth-highest ranked player born in 1996 or later. She'll be the youngest of the four, meaning there are no players ranked higher than her who are younger. The next player younger than Donna is at #122.

She already is! Njiric is #2, at #87.

Btw, Donna is playing in another G2 event, in the same city in South Africa, next week. She should be seeded #3, just like this week (the entry lists for the two events are practically identical).

Maybe.It's more than 2 months till RG but in junior competition there are only 64 players in the main draw,not 128 like at seniors.8 of that 64 players comes from qualifications,that means that 56 players comes directly in the main draw.When you add several of players with the wild card then you know that only about 50 or 52 players comes directly in the main draw.

Good point, okramb. So maybe RG main draw but definitely qualies.

By the way, Donna's ranking has gotten good enough that she'll only pick up points in singles at next week's G2 event if she reaches the SF.

If she manages that, she'll move into the top 50 (probably around #48). As the #3 seed, she should be able to reach the SF, but it's not guaranteed, of course. Good luck next week, Donna!

Re: Donna Vekic

The draw is out for the upcoming G2 in South Africa. Donna has a very nice chance to reach at least the QF. In R1, she plays Laura DEIGMAN (#238). The winner of that match will play the winner of a qualifier and a WC.

Re: Donna Vekic

I wish the best luck to Donna against Deigman.Deigman is 3 years older,same as Lupu,I hope the result will be the same but when the year difference is so big in junior tennis you never know how the match will turn on.Donna could have better draw for the first round my fingers are crossed!
