Re: Donna Vekic

How is possible that Donna is 8th seed when her junior rank is pretty bad (due to not playing juniors so much)?
Anyway, good luck!

Re: Donna Vekic

They take into account pro rankings for the seedings. That's why Beck is the #2 seed.

Anyway I hope for once Donna has a good run at a Grand Slam.

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.

Only logical explanation.

I expect (but it is more hope for which I know that Donna has potential to make it) at least SF. Donna, just act this is some 25k in Asia!

Re: Donna Vekic

1R: (8)Donna Vekic (CRO) df. (Q)Ilona Kremen (BLR) 6-2 6-3

Nice start! The draw has opened up a bit with Khromacheva and Bencic losing, who were potential quarterfinal opponents for Donna.

Re: Donna Vekic

Khromacheva and Bencic lost, but Lottner stands as a better player than them now

Seeds are seeded for either their junior ranking, or pro ranking. But do the players choose which ranking do they want to be taken into account (and express their option) or it's the best one who's automatically used? I know there's a whole explanation about this matter of fact on the ITF site, but I'm too lazy to search Maybe someone knows

Re: Donna Vekic

I hope she won't waste too much energy on doubles tournament, specially if she gets far (QF or further).

Gl tommorow!

P.S. funny thing is that she will play against the same opponent both in singles and doubles. Let's hope for quick 2:0

Re: Donna Vekic

Donna is playing her R2 match right now, against Peterson. She lost the first set 36 but won the second 76(2). They're on serve in the third set, 22.

Fight, Donna
