Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

A big congratulations to Donna and a public apology on my part for doubting you can make it

You sure passed another very important test today and showed strenght of character despite the odds. I wish you all the luck in the world tomorrow

Speaking of tomorrow, the second Pliskova won the first set against Cibulkova in a tie-break, just like I thought it could happen upon seing Cibulkova play for a bit yesterday...

And last but not the least, a note for the organisers: Dear geniuses, please make sure for the sake of everybody involved that you prepare another utterly moronic schedule for tomorrow - that means, no matches before 8 PM at least, so that players stand courtside at 2 AM waiting for the rain to stop. Oh, and now make sure to take the cameras off of the center court as well. Not that anybody expects a final to have any sort of live coverage. Your's truly...ma re

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

This brings Donna roughly to #75 and if I'm not mistaken back to position of Croatian #1 since Tomljanovic is defending points this week and not playing. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

DONNA FREAKIN' VEKIC

If there is no stream for the finals I will cry

She's such a true GOAT. Winning matches during typhoon conditions.

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.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Karo and Domi going the distance today, into the third set after just under two hours on court.

Btw, this result practically guarantees Donna a place in the main draw of all remaining grand slams this year. I think she just needs about 15 points to be sure, cause she is defending about 80 until the cut off for USO is made (I think Baku points come off later than that). And she is currently (so, without KL points) some 70 points ahead of #110, which is usually the last place to get you in a main draw of a major.

Nice work

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

And she should be around #50 in the race. Quite a turnaround after 2 months without a single win.

It's Cibulkova in the final. Realistically Donna has no chance, let's hope she uses it.

Give it your best Donna, nothing to lose here! The worst thing that can happen is a valuable learning experience.
