If she can win ITF Poitiers that would be a good result
A number of results could be considered good results, cause a lot will depend on the draw. If she doesn't make it past the QF but beats an in-form player like Lucic, Knapp, Arvidsson or Giorgi on her way (all of whom can be very good indoors), then I'll consider that a good result
I guess she bought a new dress for some upcoming players parties and she doesn't fill it out properly.
Smart girl, plans ahead when it doesn't come to her tennis.
Complete and utter disappointment this year.
And yet, you insist on keeping her as your avatar picture...
P. S. No need to be mean or disrespectful.

Not that much to say about yesterday's performance except maybe that Lisicki must be bipolar, cause we definately saw two players coming out of her last night
She was completely out of sorts for a set and a bit, with groundstrokes flying everywhere except into the court, serve going shaky to say the least and with no chance for a decent drop shot to save her life. I honestly don't remember when was the last time I saw her play that way. Donna did well to take her chance and get away with a set, like any normal player would, but then I think she wasn't agressive enough at the start of the third. This could've not only help her install some extra confidence into herself, but also could've additionally unsettle Sabine and possibly bring about at least a tie-break in the second. Instead she seemed rahter passive in that period, and that's exactly when Sabine started finding her game again. Once she was there it was prettty much all over, and it seems like Donna knew what's coming around the middle of the second set - at least her body language seemed to indicate that. Later on, Donna was given a free practical lecture on top 10 tennis, and it must've been painful to go through. I'm sure this loss will be in her mind for quite some time, and it could turn into a valuable lesson.
On a positive side, there's a lot to learn from this match, even for us who are not on court, and for Donna these past couple of weeks can be beneficial for a return to some solid matches on an ITF circuit.
