Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Donna

I think she would've won a 3 setter against Klara "I hit 23 errors a set" Zakopolova

The parts I saw she looked as if she didn't care. Which isn't what you want to see

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

not a lot to say about her 2013, besides the final in Birmingham, she never has any momentum built in the rest of the tournaments, won 2 or more MD matches only in Istanbul, Birmingham and Baku

quite a forgettable year to be honest

but at least I met Donna in Cincinnati in person, so not too bad

yeh, one more tournament to go, she still has the chance

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Well, this was to be expected now that she played mostly on WTA Tour.
Good sign that she's still in TOP 100.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

That 'was to be expected' because she has poor one dimension game.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Sharapova is one dimensional and she won all 4 GS's.

She hits harder, she is much quicker and her backhand can make demage. First GS at Donna's age...

That were other times...Capriati, Hingis, Sharapova...all of them were winning slams as teenagers! That one of Sharapova in 2004. (now almost ten years after) is a last one! Now there are some other times for teenagers.
Anyway, so what if she hits harder, is much quicker and her backhand can make damage? It is not like Donna will forever stay like this. She will improve all of things that are not her best at the moment! She will practicing and improving. One day she will become good enough to be quicker, hit harder and will have amazing backhand! She is dedicated to her sport and ready on everything to improve. So...she will do it! And one day will win a slam!

Ana Konjuh | Donna Vekic | Mirjana Lucic-Baroni | Ana Ivanovic | Nicole Vaidisova

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

At least they're taking some risks with their choice of tournaments. A shity draw to say the least, but if nothing it should be streamed... On a slightly more positive note, these matches can only help in the long run and for instance as a preparation for the start of 2014 - like in case she bumps into a high seed in Melbourne.
