Re: Donna Vekic

From Donna's facebook:

"Today I beat my 2nd round opponent Hozumi Eri, Jap 6-0 7-6! Happy to get to last 8 again in a 25k tournament. Tomorrow I will play Jia-Jing Lu, CHN. But first: stretching, lunch, massage, rest...."

Everything so far going by the plan.
Lu is not a bad opponent for QF.
Good luck!

Re: Donna Vekic

"Even though I am not happy loosing the match, I'm still satisfied with this week. Played three very tough matches and ready for next developing."

By the way I've looked at some of her interviews on her Facebook page. She has a strong British accent. I know she's coached by David Felgate but does she actually reside/train in England? Or did she train there for some years? It says she resides in Osijek. Do any of you Croatian posters know?

And we'll never be royals (royals). It don't run in our blood, That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz.

Disappointing loss. And such a missed chance: if she had won, she would be playing against world #859 for the final...

Re: Donna Vekic

Ranking isn't everything, many chinese girls don't have enought money to travel and play weak tournaments like donna.

Re: Donna Vekic

An unexpected loss from time to time isn't necessarily a bad thing, as long as it's not too frequent. It keeps the player grounded and on course, sort of sharpens the focus, assuming there's a right attitude present in the player and the supporting team.

Best of luck in the next one
