Re: Donna Vekic

Why does she do so bad at juniors?

Re: Donna Vekic

Well that was unexpected.
Junior tennis really doesn't interest her IMO.
We'll see how she does in Padova...

Re: Donna Vekic


Rebecca is a good player, but she should stand no chance against Donna. But that's a junior slam...

Re: Donna Vekic

I don't know why she bother herself with grand slams (on junior stage of course) when she obviously feels too much pressure. Because I don't understand how she beat top 300 players regularly to lose against random girls on junior slams.

Re: Donna Vekic

She is bad at Juniors for 5 reasons IMO:
1. She sets High Expectations
2. She feels like its a bigger stage=More Pressure
3. Is no longer underdog
4. Her game doesn't suit pushers and that's what many Juniors are
5. Its on clay

Nettu + Lera + Sofishka + Katu + Carolsh + Miley + Lissi + Kaia + Gendra + Eva + Saara + Matti + Kenneth + Jürgen + Alex

Re: Donna Vekic

It's really tough to pinpoint the source of her problems in junior slams, so I guess it's a combination of factors. I hope it's not because she's no longer an underdog, cause players who constantly need to be underdogs to find interest in a match usually don't go very high in tennis (imagine Azarenka saying that she doesn't feel like playing anymore cause she's not an underdog). I also hope it's not because of feeling too much pressure, cause what'll happen when she finds herself in a position where she has to play a pro slam. She always speaks about enjoying pressure, so I wouldn't say that's the main problem.

This is definately disappointing, all things considered. Sure, we all have our bad days, but if your goal is to be #1 in tennis, then you don't get a lot of freebies on big stages, that's for sure. I really do expect her to reach at least one slam QF this year, cause we all know she is more than capable of doing so.

Btw, what happened in doubles?

Re: Donna Vekic

Why Donnita?

Btw. in doubles she won and she is in QF. I think it will be played tommorow.

Re: Donna Vekic

Well, a great result in doubles wouldn't hurt either, so if she can go far in that draw I would be perfectly fine with that development Sure, it's not the same as singles, but if there is a chance, why not take it. Best of luck!

Re: Donna Vekic

Here are some photos from Donna's match against Peterson. I liked her outfit at least.

Donna is into the doubles SF

She and partner beat Bencic/Vajdova 4 and 2.

They next play the #2 seeds, Gavrilova/Khromacheva. Good luck!

Re: Donna Vekic

This match ahead really sounds like a big obstacle. Let's hope "our" girls will be ready It would be really awesome to see Donna's name in the junior slam final, even if it's a doubles event.

Re: Donna Vekic

Great outfit indeed
Khromacheva has a very strong doubles record, at least in juniors. It'll be tough for Donna and her partner
