Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

While I don't think Donna will ever be ranked as high as Majoli for example, I think she is definitely a good tennis player, and good for Croatian tennis and sport in general.
The thing is 99.99% of people (in Croatia) will never achieve in their whole life what she has done by the time she turned 17: to be in the top 100 in the world in what they do. So for them to criticize her is ludicrous. Maybe the media hyped their expectations, but that still does not excuse being assholes to a teenage girl.

Oh yes they have, but the main source of the hype was actually her own team, who went on promoting her on a large scale before anyone even knew who she was. And of course, her own words often repeated in interviews for the local press, in which she would frequently state that she aims for #1, surely didn't help - cause when you talk big, people expect even bigger. But yes, a bit of common sense on the part of the fans wouldn't hurt

Anyway, Miami qualies coming up. Any win(s) would be more than welcome. Go for it Donna!

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

If not now, she will soon turn the corner. Idemooo!

P.S. I may still be on a high from two of my faves winning Indian Wells.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Time to defend some points now, every win counts. Last year she obviously felt quite well in Miami, getting past 2 quali rounds and one in the main draw, so let's hope Miami does the trick for her again Alla hasn't been playing that well lately, although she does have a couple of top 100 wins this year - including against Ajla, of course.

Good luck D!
