Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I think Vinci is a good draw, and I dont think that grass is her best surface, she has suffered some horrible losses on grass! Like 6:0 6:1 to Halep...or now to Hantchuhova...she has no strong serve nor very strong return, expecially on backhand. If donne serves good she should win this. I am confident that she can do it and will do it. And zvonareva and Moore in second round is also great draw. And Suarez on grass in third also! I defenitly think that this is her big Chance to make her breakthrough to the second week on a Grand Slam. Its her best surface and the draw is really good, she also has already some nice wins and confidence and experience already.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Well, losing to Halep or Hantuchova on grass is not necessarily a bad result, although that scoreline looks terrible, but Vinci is really good on grass - reached R4 of Wimbledon for the past two years and in 2013 took out Cibulkova 6:1, 6:4, can't say that's a lousy stat.

Wouldn't like to talk too much about matches beyond R1, but Suarez Navarro is definately no slouch on grass and she'd surely drive Donna crazy (and send her home crying probably). The woman reached last 16 in Wimbledon and played the semis of s-Hertogenbosch last year taking out Bouchard and Pironkova along the way.

you are right. But her aim is to be the number 1 one day, and grass is her best surface. And all These Players are not bad, I know. But she is turning 18, she has some decent results, and in the draw are MUCH MUCH tougher Players than these on grass court, I just say, she has a Chance to come far. And I see this draw as good Chance to come far...

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Organizational question:

Do you not want to use separate threads for different parts of the season? I created one for the grass season but if most people would rather just continue to use one large thread for everything I could delete it.

I like it the way you organized it. Will this be a "cheering" thread from now on?

I'm fine with transfering onto the separate thread (didn't notice it, sorry)

I prefer the separate thread for part of the season

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

With 200 points to defend by the end of the year, top 50 some 300 points away and no age restrictions, nice things seem possible in terms of ranking
