Re: Donna Vekic

Donna lost the doubles semifinal. Still a good run after the disappointing early singles loss. Next week she's playing $25,000 Padova on clay in Italy. I think there's a livestream so maybe we can see her play.

Re: Donna Vekic

Argh, so freakin close to making it into a slam final Oh well, she also has to learn a thing or two about losing. Just hope she doesn't make it a habit I really don't know what to expect from Wimbledon, but I do know that taking a step backwards from RG is not an option.

Good luck next week (and fingers crossed that there is live streaming)!

Donna's 15 years old so she's allowed 10 tournaments until she turns 16 (June 28). Right now she has 9 tournaments with points. That means she can play one more tournament (Padova) through the end of the month.

Re: Donna Vekic

Btw, Donna's W-L record this year in pro singles matches is 18-4.

In 2011 and 2012 combined, it's 41-10

Re: Donna Vekic

Padova MD is out. Donna is the #2 seed at a $25K

Here's her quarter of the draw:

Isabella Shinikova (BUL) v Evgenia Artamonova (RUS)
Lisa Sabino (SUI) v Aliaksandra Sasnovich (BLR)
Anna-Lena Friedsam (GER) v Ekaterine Gorgodze (GEO)
Donna Vekic (CRO) v Claudia Giovine (ITA)

She can't complain about the draw: Q in R1 and if she wins that, another Q in R2.

Good luck, Donna--good opportunity to pick up a few more points!

Re: Donna Vekic

I don't see Vekic beating ALF but first round should be ok.

Re: Donna Vekic

Giovine is Flavia Pennetta's cousin. Donna shouldn't have any problems with her but I agree Friedsam is a really tough second round draw.
