Re: Donna Vekic

They already have played!?

This is brilliant, she in semifinal with 3 easy convincing wins!
Whatever happens next, it is just a bonus!

Re: Donna Vekic

With this 24 points Donna will jump up to about # 525!!!

With this semi-final (3 matches) Donna will earn points like she won two 10 000$ tournaments...it's pretty obvious that 10 000$ tournaments are starting to be waste of time and strength for Donna

Re: Donna Vekic

Cakewalk of a draw, but she's taking advantage of it. You can only beat who is put in front of you.

Re: Donna Vekic

Brilliant Donny!

I agree that 10k's might be a waste from now on, specially since she will have a much higher rank. She is limited to a certain number of senior tournaments anyway so why not use it on 25k's. Few easier ones + few Wild cards and she will have no problem filling the quota.

Re: Donna Vekic

Very impressive, Donna! I thought Fouruclas would be much tougher for her. In R1 Fouruclas beat Szatmari (CH#187) 16 60 62. Then in R2 she beat Jakupovic (#347) 61 61. And Donna lost only three games

Re: Donna Vekic

...but now it gets tough for Donna. In SF she plays either the #1 seed, Bratchikova, or top-10 junior Kovinic.

Either way, Donna has already had a great week. She'll get a big, fat jump in the rankings. And she still has next week to pick up some more points. Let's hope she gets an easy draw!

SF. But whatever happens, it is already best week of Donna senior career.

End-of-year top 500 is looking very doable for Donna at this point. She's about 8 points away so one win next week would probably do it

Re: Donna Vekic

After this week's results are counted, Donna will be the second-highest-ranked player born in 1996 or later.

And going by this week's rankings, Donna will likely be ninth-highest among players born in 1995 or later:

1 . #235 . Putintseva, Yulia (07/01/95) ... 239 pts (11 tournaments)
2 . #298 . Keys, Madison (17/02/95) ... 172 pts (8)
3 . #403 . Khromacheva, Irina (12/05/95) ... 97 (8)
4 . #422 . Townsend, Taylor (16/04/96) ... 89 (5)
5 . #425 . Shkudun, Anna (27/01/95) ... 89 (12)
6 . #450 . Witthoeft, Carina (16/02/95) ... 80 (13)
7 . #490 . Lysa, Yuliya (14/05/95) ... 71 (10)
8 . #502 . Vickery, Sachia (11/05/95) ... 69 (10)
9 . #525 . Vekic, Donna (28/06/96) ... 61 (6)

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna is playing against Nina Bratchikova in the semis.

Bratchikova is # 135.She is much more experienced than Donna, she has a lot of big matches played in her career and it would be a big surprise if Donna win this one.Donna never played against top 200 player if my memory serves me well.
