Re: Donna Vekic

Donna's web site says that she is gonna play 2 tournaments that begins on 6th and 13th November.It is French Inter League in Metz and Marseille but I can't find in witch category of tournaments that belongs...Are they junior tournaments or ITF futures or challengers???They are not on list of any of those calendars.So if somebody knows...I would be grateful....

That is not bad decision. Well, she can not get pts for that, but at least she will stay touch with playing, and what is more important, getting experience against top 100 and top 200 players.

Re: Donna Vekic

As expected, big move up the rankings for Donna this week, from 493 to 392

She's now the #8 ranked Croat. Much more impressively she's the top-ranked player born in 1996 or later

And even more impressively, she's #3 among players born in 1995 or later:

1. 241...Putintseva, Yulia...07/01/95...231 pts...11 tournaments
2. 315...Keys, Madison...17/02/95...156 pts...9 tournaments
3. 392...Vekic, Donna...28/06/96...105 pts...7 tournaments

Re: Donna Vekic

Wonderful!

Btw, if I recall correctly, there was once a rule (not sure if there still is), which said that players ranked below a certain number are not allowed to play WTA events unless given WC's - and I think this number was 400. Anyone knows what I'm talkin' about?

I don't know but I think it doesn't matter because I think Donna will play challengers in the first half of the next year (she is permitted 6 more tournaments till July) and with points from that tournaments she will enter top 300 for sure but I hoping even more.And than she will be granted to play WTA tournaments with or without WC for sure.

Anyone wants to predict how high she will be on the end of June if she will play total of 6 tournaments she is allowed?She is defending 17 points in the first half of the year...That is not much,if she will be playing on the same level like in this year I see her in top 300-250 till July

Re: Donna Vekic

Her division is the second rank of French league play. The teams are still pretty decent. She's on the same tier as Mayr and Lisjak. Can't find out who she beat though, but there were some good players on the team her team beat

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

Re: Donna Vekic

From a french new portal: can anyone translate?

Le phénomène Vekic
Celle-ci ne sera pas totalement invisible puisque la jeune Alexandra Rey, remplaçante, sautera dans la brèche dès que l’occasion se présentera. Et il n’y a pas de déshonneur à piaffer d’impatience dans l’antichambre des stars. Car l’ASPTT Metz regorge de talents divers : « Etant donné le calendrier et l’époque, constate le capitaine messin, aucune n’a voulu partir. Il faut dire que nous les soignons ! Alors chaque joueuse disputera deux matches puisqu’elles tiennent toutes à participer à l’aventure. »
Le premier match à domicile, dimanche contre le Stade Toulousain, sera marqué par les débuts des deux nouvelles recrues croates : Ivana Lisjak et Donna Vekic. « La première est très forte, la deuxième a un an de moins qu’Alexandra Rey ! » Quinze donc… Mais Vekic, à cet âge-là, pointe déjà dans le top 500 mondial des grandes, se situant au niveau d’une certaine Constance Sibille ! Un phénomène à découvrir. Quant à sa compatriote, seule une blessure l’a fait lâcher sa 90 e place mondiale.
Avec la Bulgare Naydenova (300 e et troisième renfort), l’ASPTT peut afficher ses ambitions : « On a raté deux fois de peu la montée pour un point et si on échoue encore, on ne l’aura pas fait exprès. Nous alignerons la meilleure équipe possible lors des cinq matches. » Dans la poule B de six adversaires, Frédéric Heitz devra avoir l’œil sur Orléans, grosse écurie, sans mésestimer son premier rival : « Toulouse peut être moyen comme très fort. le club jouera-t-il le jeu ? »
A. T.

Re: Donna Vekic

I tried with a google translate to Croatian or English but both translations were lame...only thing I could figure out was that writer glorify Donna for being so young in top 500 and that every player will play 2 matches...
