Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Donna's match has begun, 1-0* in the first set.

And we have a high quality stream from day 1.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Donna digs herself out of 15-40 hole and holds for 2-1*.

Really interesting match up, Donna has the better forehand, Bencic dominates on the backhand.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Donna gets herself a BP with a few blistering forehands, but Bencic comes up with great serving and the match is level at *2-2.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

No hawkeye at a Premier tournament just shouldn't be acceptable.

Donna finds herself at 15-40 again due to a few brutal backhands from Bencic but Donna again saves both of them, this time though with good defense and backhand down the line.

But at deuce Bencic strikes a brilliant backhand down the line of her own, giving her the 3rd BP. Donna nets a backhand and Bencic leads by a break.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Bencic misses her first serve a few times and Donna gets herself 2 BP with 2 return winners in a row (one overruled by the umpire much to the dismay of Bencic). But like in the last service game Bencic finds her first serve when it matters and Donna can't make good returns, allowing Bencic to consolidate the break.

*2-4

A service winner and an ace get Donna to 30-0, Bencic wins a point off of Donna's second serve, but Donna responds with a service winner and another ace.

3-4*

This really is a good, close match. Bencic has the slightly higher first serve percentage and that pretty much is the difference between the two of them now.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

That was the first bad service game from the two of them. A double faults, missed easy returns, short balls missed and Donna arrives at BP once again. First good rally of the game ends with another unforced error from Bencic and Donna breaks. Bencic sounding not very pleased with herself.

*4-4

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Bad forehand error from Donna, a great serve and a great rally from Bencic and Donna is down 15-30. She plays a short ball that she really should just put where Bencic isn't right into her racket and she finds herself down 2 BP again. First one saved with an ace, second one ends with an unforced error on the backhand from Donna. That was a bit of a let down and Bencic will serve for the first set.

4-5*

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

4-5*

15-00 Donna shanks the return
30-00 Short return from Donna that Bencic puts away
40-00 Donna sends a forehand long
4-6 Donna doesn't do enough on an approach shot and easily passed at the net.

This was a really high quality match up to 4-3, then they both let it slip a bit. Bencic recovered after one game, Donna didn't.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Epic on court coaching

Felgate: "How are you feeling?"
Donna: "The court is so fucking wet"
Felgate: "No it isn't. Don't worry about the court, the court is perfect, stop bitching about the court"
Donna makes a face
Felgate: "Give yourself a bit more room on the second serve and don't leave your shots short on the backhand"
Donna still making a face
Felgate: "People have been playing on grass courts for 150 years, grow up and stop bitching about it, if you don't like it go play on clay"

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Bad service game from Donna with a few wild errors and she is immediately broken.

0-1*

Donna looks a bit out of it, her forehand misfiring wildly. Easy hold for Bencic.

*0-2

Donna has to hold now or this is over. Bencic with a few errors of her own and Donna does hold, keeping her in the match.

1-2*
