Zari was down 1-4* and had many opportunities at 4-4 to win that game...

A shame for Donna although I doubt she would have beaten Zarina if she played like she did for a lot of today

My thought exactly.

Anyway, this was a much better match. She has been so mentally strong when saving break points.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Probably should keep my mouth shut but I have a good feeling about tomorrow. Would be great if it were to come true.

Zhang is clear favorite tomorrow, ATM she is more complete player.

GL to Donna
The odds say Donna has a good chance. I think it is about 50/50.

Very good with the points earned here. To be able to play many big tournaments.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I watched many Shuai's matches last year and I was really impressed with her game. She is in much worse form this year (passed second round only in 1/10 tournaments).

Her game is pure enjoy to watch when she is on, just hope that she won't bring her best game tomorrow

Thanks for the videos at the end She looked so happy!

Has anyone ever met Donna? If you have, how was her personality? Did she seem like a nice person?

Despite not making many winners, she's still an agressive baseliner, and she doesn't only win matches by waiting the opponent's mistake, though she can do that at times also.

When I saw her in person and that was ages, ages ago,
she was very aproachable and nice, found time for everyone who wanted to interact with her.
But I guess she must have changed by now bc it can't be that amusing pleasing all the people all the time, especially now that she is more popular.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Interesting and somewhat worrying is how she needed two atempts at a serve for the match in each of her two previous matches. Still needs to work a lot on settling her nerves when it really matters.

Anyway, in doubles Kichenok/Savchuk have a set and a break advantage so might not be long before Donna is on court, 3/4 hours maybe...

EDIT: A re-break in the second set of a doubles match just now.

They're drying the court, but have just reported that a thunderstorm is in the forecast...

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Really dark skies, wind, thunders...but they're still drying the court

Poor guys, who knows how many more times will they be doing this until the tournament is over.
