Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Great to see Donna winning again (even if it's only a qualifying round)!

Alla is no joke so a good win for Donna

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Larsson has about as many good wins this year as Alla, so that's not bad, and she also has some losses to 100-150 players. But she somehow pulled of a 6-7 set aginst Vika in Melbourne so you never know what she can manage out there.

Donna will surely have to be at the top of her game, whatever that means at this particular point in time.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Not a post match interview, just one of those "trivia" or "off-court" interviews.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

First interview with Donna I've seen in a while. Love the accent

The interview was a bit awkward in my opinion, but she answered the questions well enough

Good luck against Jo-La

Yeah guy was a bit strange, not relaxed definitely.

Maybe he asked her those older fan questions so he could ask her for autograph later.

I think Larsson is great draw for Donna and should be much easier opponent than Alla.
We'll see...

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Donna is the first one to break - *2-1 (after two wasted BP's, but still...)

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

And confirms the break with a serve to love - she lost just one point on serve in two service games

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

After nine points won in a row she had 3 BP's for a double break and managed to blow them all before converting on an adv.

*4:1

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I go away for a few minutes and she gets broken. Luckily she took care of that first set before letting it happen.

EDIT: broke straight back to fifteen for 6:1, *1:1
