Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

It's not like the service box is smaller on clay.

She lost that match at 4-3 30-00/40-30 and 4-4 30-00/40-30, that her nerves wouldn't hold at 4-5 after that was inevitable.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

In mine book I can't see her as really good and serious tennis player if she is not able to play well on clay.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I though she had it, noooo!

I guess it will be some time before we can expect good results from her on clay. I had hoped she would continue to win close matches in the third set.

Well, this was a setback, bring on the grass.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Is it true that she was cramping near the end of the match?

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I can't say if she was cramping or not, but I can imagine it happening after what...two and a half hours, if not more. It was a long one.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

A disappointing loss, no doubt, a great opportunity missed. But there is also no doubt she struggles on clay.

Despite this tweet from the other day-

@DonnaVekic May 26

I am never, ever, EVER GETTING A HAIRCUT EVER AGAIN. #depression

it seems her hair is fine- maybe there was something about the new cut she didn't like but it really seems totally fine to me. Quite often if you have very long hair after you cut it a bit I guess you regret it, you miss the long hair. But her hair is still a nice length.

















Definitely looks like she was fighting hard, just not quite winning.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I don't know about you guys but I think she should be very please with her results Obviously Glushko is a winnable math for Donna but she is not that much lower ranked and arguably Donna is ranked lower if it was Clay rankings I think she has had an astounding Clay Season by her standards

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I think she should have taken this one, it was one of the most winnable matchups for her in the draw. Maybe had a shot at Flipkens but would have been the underdog there. No way she was getting through Sara.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Disappointing loss. Are the W/UE stats on the RG website reliable? They don't make for very good reading.

The blackness that falls is coming to stay

I think the W/UE ratio are accurate.

The RG app says Donna was 22/66 and Julia was 23/42

Pretty much the definition of a shitfest

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

Hey guys!
I saw Donna's match against Glushko. It was the best match I saw of the tournament this year. Donna played an amazing match, really powerfull, great defense, great fight. The crowd loved that match. And to be honest, Glushko played a really good match and deserve that win. They did a big hugs in the end, Donna was a really fair play girl during all the match.

Btw, Donna was my favorite this year, we take a selfie, she tweeted me too... She's a really nice person and great with fan.
