Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

A nice little bump up the rankings today, from 87 to 72.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Donna's tweet from last night: Germany serving for the set.

Good one

How so? One round further at Wimbledon counts for that much?

When you are ranked that low yes, she has 755 pts -70 = 685 which currently is #88. But now it will be tougher

She drew Koukalova in R1 of Istanbul.

She's drawn Klara 3 times in R1 on hard courts this year

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

Yup, Klara sure is a tricky draw for Donna, and it'll be really interesting to see what can she do this time around.

Both of her previous losses to KK came in a span of two months and both were straight sets, with one at least ending with a somewhat better scoreline (7:5).

Let's see if she can take her first set here in Istanbul, or maybe even more. She'll definately have to be on a very high level by her standards as it was seen in the Florianopolis match, which was streamed.

Anyway, good luck Donna

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Bad luck with the draw but hopefully Donna will come up with some good play and at least make it competitive.

Ajmo!

Though it was on clay, Koukalova was HORRIBLE last week (bagelled by Niculescu). She looked somewhat burntout to me. I think Donna has a fair chance today!

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Kovinic and Svitolina sure are taking their time today (4:4 in the final at the moment). Given that it's already 19:45 in Istanbul I wonder how long will Donna and Klara even play
