Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I think all he wanted to do is get her not to quarrel with the conditions and focus on playing tennis, on things she can actually influence. It doesn't really matter whether the court is in brilliant or terrible condition, they can't do anything about it.

I doubt it'll be an issue between them. It was just funny because that was maybe the most direct on court coaching I've ever seen on the WTA.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Oh, c'mon. Felgate has been working with her for quite some time now. This is not grounds for firing someone.

This reminds me of the "tiff" between Bouchard and her coach the day before her semifinal match vs. Sharapova. It's not all roses and sunshine for coach and player all of the time, trust me.

If she fires him I could not think of a bigger mistake...

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

The coach should shut up. He has never made it to the final of a grass event but he talks like he won Halle. His player was depressed and all he does is make her feel worse.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

It's irrelevant as a coach whether he won a grass tournament as a player, but I agree it wasn't quite right to tell her off in that situation. He is the much more mature and experienced person so he should calm her down and tell her something like- the surface is the same for both players, you need to find a way to cope with it.

If it indeed was a bit wet, some tactical advice about slice serves and low attacking shots would also be useful. If it's a bit too slippery to defend she ought to attack.

Really, Donna shouldn't complain about the surface, but should instead ask for advice on how to handle the playing conditions. But she is young so it is understandable that her frustration got the better of her.

Not surprised. Twitter users are always so negative about everything.

She was being an idiotic shit though Obviously many circumstantial points contributed to this bad mood and he didn't do good things for it in hindsight but I think he was trying to hype her up

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Dani matches Belina much better off the backhand. Again, Donna played a very poor match tactically.

ugh, why do they all suck????????
