Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2
Kudos for a fight in the second, but that first one was horror pure and simple. An error fest with bizzare shot selection and without any sort of plan of action. Svitolina is definately the better player at the moment, but Donna should've been much better prepared for this match. Case in point, her serve was virtually non-existant for half of the match and she was suppose to be the one with the big serve...? Once her serve was neutralized and her power taken care of (for which Svitolina needed something like 2 games) she was clueless for the next half a dozen games at least, which is really not acceptable. So she goes home now with two wins against journeywomen under her belt and after getting demolished by the first solid player she faced. Hardly something to be satisfied about. I think both she and her team have a lot to think about after this performance. Second set seemed more like her old self, but that's really not enough to save the overall impression today.
