As of Donna, we don't really know how she played. The scoreline doesn't tell the all story.
When Donna can be points from beating Sharapova, then maybe your argument will have validity.
Watson as of late has been improving and Jane Lane along with twitter posts say Watson kept it competitive and was getting back to her best. Donna's close 3 set defeat of a clay-courter does not even compare to Halep's win over Watson and you will never convince me or anyone who is comparing the two otherwise

Exactly, I'd be really happy if she could cut that 2012 ranking in half this year i.e. finish the season around #60, that would be really nice. After Tashkent Donna will probably hit the ITF road again as there really aren't many WTA's left in which she could make a real impact.
Obviously, there are enough back to back tournaments which are geographically close so it would be a good idea to consider them. For instance four consecutive 50k and above events in France during October and the Turkey-UAE-Egypt scheme in November doesn't look bad either.
Of course, one can't forget those 125k events, there are three left to play this year, two of which are in consecutive weeks in late October - early November and reasonably close to one another. Wouldn't be surprised at all to see her in both.

Lol I am not doing any comparison between the two or their 1st rd matches. I don't make judgement about matches I didn't see(in this case few people saw). We all know Halep is going to win tomorrow but it doesn't mean Watson would also have won just because she kept it competitive for a set and half against a tired Halep.

As if Donna ever come close to beat a top player, you will not come up with: Sharapova was injured/tired/didn't play well...Other "young" players have been within points of beating Sharapova, so it means nothing . Watson has been improving? she kept it competitive for a set and half then disappeared .

Vekic won the third set 6-2 but for you it was a "close 3 set defeat". i have just one word: amazing

Over 300 points to defend until end of 2013. It will be tough to end season in TOP 70. But still it is huge jump in rankings, Donna finished 2012. as world No.118
We will see after Tashkent. If she can at least reach the semi, I think she will end the season in the top 70 as long as she doesn't go into a losing streak.

Race points after USO 2nd rd + at least a Tashkent semi : 794 pts . You need about 900-925 for a 70 finish

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Necessary and important win for Donna; 100 juicy points. Everything from now on is just a bonus Good to see her being able to close it out and get the win after a shaky performance.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Really glad Donna was able to get the win. Looked like a tough one.

Next round doesn't get any easier.

Nearly everyone says it should have been easier. If she had lost the 1st then she would have lost the match so to me I think that's close
And even though Watson isn't as good as she was, since her lay-off she has been steadily improving. She even says so herself...

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I don't get why Cornet/Tomljanovic is streamed but Halep/Vekic isn't.

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.
