Re: Donna Vekic

Just beat 8th seed Wienerova Lenka, SVK (WTA 268, best ranking 126.) 6-2 6-1. Played really great tennis today....from Donna's facebook profile.
This is realy impresive: to lose 3 games only in 8th final !!! BRAVO !!!

Re: Donna Vekic

I was hoping for a win, but didn't expect it to come this easy, to say the least (Wienerova is a former top 130 with quite a lot of experience). Great job Donna

Re: Donna Vekic

IMO, if she doesn't get over-confident, she's gonna achieve a lot. Good luck!

Donna was rising like rocket in juniors ranking till she started to play senior tournaments. Her team's decision is to focus more on senior tennis and just play big junior events. So i don't think she is bad, she just doesn't care at this point.

She is still just 15 years old girl and big oscillations in game for her age are the most normal thing that can happen to tennis player.
After all, seniors have the same problems too, don't they?

Re: Donna Vekic

Junior results don't always prove to be great prephecies of someone's career. And when money is an issue, like it is for many up and coming players, focus on junior events is not a priority.

I have a feeling that she is just using these junior events as a preparation for professional ones, sort of like a good practice. And if it happens that she makes a result in some of them, all the better.

I'm also under the impression that expectations get the most of her in many of these junior events, especially now that she's virtually not playing any junior tournaments apart from slams. Most great players made at least one notable run in junior slams, so trying to accomplish that and reassure everyone who still might have doubts about her, could add too much weight on her shoulders.

But it might be that none of this is true, it's just the way I see it.
