Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Well, the better player sure won the day.

Donna kept her cool and played some good quality tennis in the initial stages, but then lost the focus once she was faced with a really solid resistance from the other side. Soon enough her error count went up, and in the end it was obvious who'll come out on top even several games before the match actually ended. Serve was pretty good, but it's not enough to win this sort of a match. Long rallies almost all went Belinda's way (deservedly so), as Donna found herself clueless as to what to do once the point extends pass the third or fourth shot. Her anticipation and reaction times mid-point were really bad, and when she is faced with someone who is multi-layered and who can cope with her power, she is in trouble.

Altogether, it's not the end of the world as the end of age restrictions allows Donna to play much more now, so just one win in each of the next two events would be enough to restore a good part of the ranking points. But that's not the real issue here. As time goes by she'll be facing more and more of the "Bencic types", and her game is not ready to routinely take care of such matches. The development of her game is not going as well as one would hope in the last year or so, and her ranking is paying the price.

The fact that her coach got fed up with her attitude (at least today) is indicative of possible frustration on his side as well and it'll be interesting to see how she'll react to this now. Her ego certainly took a blow today, courtesy of both, her own coach and Belinda Bencic.

Oh well, onto Eastbourne...

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Not sure I ever saw a discussion like that between them before (and this time I missed it because of stupid commercials), but it sure seems like Felgate is seriously pissed. Not sure what "making faces" really means here, but if she was rolling her eyes or doing something of that sort while he was talking to her in front of the whole stadium and tv cameras I wouldn't like to be in her shoes today. Her parents surely won't tollerate such acts of disrespect towards a world class coach who agreed to work with her for below his standard fee (which her dad mentioned a few times before). If it was like I imagine it being, she really deserved to lose today.

I also don't think we'll be seeing a lot of tweets in the next few days.

I couldn't quite catch the dialogue but I saw her face during their exchange and she looked annoyed. Making a bit of a sour/bitter face. Like he said "lick this lemon slice". She looked quite annoyed. I didn't see eye rolling or anything but I am also a bit biased.

Donna was so unclutch today on the big points. Belinda made some bad errors too but Donna couldn't take any momentum. Pretty disappointed. At least she has KL from a ranking standpoint to fall back on.

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

What the hell is with her coach? That on court coaching was weird, he told her to "grow up". She was about to cry, what coach does that? Or maybe I missed something.

There is no degree of separation. No kind of hesitation. There’s no division keeping us apart. We are going the same direction in this universe on the move.

Maybe it's time to fire Felgate...

And we'll never be royals (royals). It don't run in our blood, That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

As I understand it he was giving her pointers on how to get herself out of trouble in the match and she was going on about courts being wet. Now, had the courts really been that wet I'm sure either the chair umpire or the supervisor would've stopped the match and Felgate would surely react too, but he insisted that the courts were fine and that she's just being a baby.

We can only speculate as to who overreacted out there, but it sure doesn't sound pretty. Hope they work it out.

Could it be a normal mode of interaction for them? Is this episode on youtube?
