Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I guessing she got an MDWC because their judging on how well she been doin on WTA Tour the past two yr and not on her recent losses/slump but in all honesty I think it was an good pick for an WC I mean most of the other Youngster that on the raise are already ranked high enough too make the MD, through I must say I kinda shock they didn't give an WC too another American player like Sachia Vickery, Louisa Chirico, Samantha Crawford

I thought they would be given it to someone like Brengle who did well to get into Hobart and I think she either qualified for Aussie Open or made FQR.

It's basically existential waterboarding.

I actualy prefer this to playing qualies because I think she would lose there for sure but you never know who she might get in MD.
Also this WC could motivate her to play above her current level.
My point is that she would have lost anyway so better to be it in MD.
These are pretty much my thoughts on the subject also - as she is in a bad form at least she'll get a chance for a fluke win (against a WC, a Q-er or someone who just doesn't feel good on the day) which could get her some much needed points, and still bigger than what's on offer in the qualies. Her form is such that playing qualies doesn't make a chance for a win any greater.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Donna is on the list of players participating in the IPTL at the end of the year. They're doing the big draft on Sunday.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Watch Donna draw Zakopalova or Lisicki again in Indian Wells.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Btw, in Donna's defense on this first round loss in Florianopolis, Zakopalova made finals and just throw one set on her way! And it was only against first seed, 16th player of the word - Suarez Navarro. She is also headcase for finals so I do not expect her to beat Muguruza but still...

Ana Konjuh | Donna Vekic | Mirjana Lucic-Baroni | Ana Ivanovic | Nicole Vaidisova

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I have no clue what will happen.

Honestly, based on her recent results, Rogowska is one of the "easiest" players she could've gotten in R1. But of course this is Donna and I will not even think about the match because I have 0 clue how this will pan out. Let's just hope she gets a W.
