Very impressive from Donna!

Re: Donna Vekic

She plays Chilumula Nidhi for a QF spot. Don't know who this girl is, but she has a terrible record. Good luck Donna!

ugh, why do they all suck????????

NIDhi? Sounds winnable for Donna.

With today's win she'll move just inside the top 600. If she wins her next match she'll move up to ~560. That would be a very nice jump in the rankings.

Re: Donna Vekic

According to Chilumula's scores, Donna is favorite.

Chilumula won only one match in main draw on five 10 000 $ tournaments this year.Her ranking is #1211.

Big chance for Donna!!!

Re: Donna Vekic

In July Donna was the eighth-highest ranked pro player born after 1995.

In early August she was the sixth-highest ranked.

In late August, she was the fourth-highest ranked.

She's now the third-highest ranked:

1. #422 Taylor Townsend (16/04/96) ... 89 pts (5 tournaments)
2. #545 Ashleigh Barty (24/04/96) ... 56 pts (5 tournaments)
3. #640 Donna Vekic (28/06/96) ... 37 pts (5 tournaments)
4. #646 Anne-Liz Jeukeng-Nkamgouo (26/05/96) ... 36 pts (8 tournaments)
5. #650 Marianna Zakarlyuk (22/09/96) ... 35 pts (5 tournaments)

And she could become the second highest if she reaches the semifinals here i.e. makes two more wins. Based on how she started this tournament (impressively), I wouldn't call it impossible.

Go for it girl!

She should be playing one of these players: [1] Bratchikova, [2] Floris, [4] Perrin or Fourouclas.

Re: Donna Vekic

It seems like Donna will play in QF against Natasha Fourouclas from South Africa.

Fourouclas is #838 on the wta list and is 2.5 years older than Donna.Her best result this year is QF on 10 000$ tournament in Durban.

It's very winnable for Donna if she plays against her.
