Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Sabine tweets that she is looking forward to it.

Donna tweets nothing.

Finally good local time for us to catch a stream

Donna, please show us some good stuff tomorrow pls
Don't look at it so tragic. Yes, it is over 130 days but it was off season mostly. She lost in Linz and Luxembourg and now in Shenzhen and AO. It is really high time to be back on winning courses but still, it is not like it is 4 moths full of tournaments...

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Six defeats in a row and you forgot Poitiers

I'm not "tragic" about it, I put all my hopes into my last sentence

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I just saw the 'blindfold' picture on her fb and noticed she/her team "photo shopped" out the mark on her leg from the original pic. any ideas why? such a strange thing to do!

original pic by photographer


version on fb


anyway, looking forward to the match against Lisicki. tough draw in R1 but what better way to turn a new leaf than by beating the #1 seed?! I hope she at least puts in a good performance and stays patient throughout points. When Lisicki is hitting her shots she can really rush opponents and the games can quickly fly by. Donna needs to slow her down, keep her focus and and keep Sabine off her rhythm. Lets go Donna!

Stop pretending her draws have been so hard. She also lost to shit people and almost worse at interclubs. Cookie was not a bad draw, Hradecka was not a bad draw, every tournament in the 1st half of 2013, was not a bad draw so just accept it is her not the draw as you are annoying me

Why? Because, she is fashion model with acting ambitions, after that she is also a tennis player.

I'm obviously aware that she has not been good recently. I'm not that blind...

It just sucks that she needs confidence, but keeps getting seeded players in these MM tournaments. And they're high seeds within the top 35, not some random #7 or #8 seed ranked outside the top 70. And Kookie was the finalist last year breadsticking Li so you can argue it wasn't an easy R1. I'm obviously aware she's been in shit form. Granted I haven't seen her play since Linz against Flipkens (which was only a couple of games) but her results clearly speak of bad play. She needs some confidence and a big boost and she isn't getting the random scrubs in R1 a la Baku or Tashkent like I want her to be. I have no words to speak for the Hradecka loss because that was pretty awful.

I'm quite aware she isn't just getting "unlucky"...

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.

You can't expect her to get such weak players in a normal MM event, Baku and Tashkent are exceptions. What I think the obvious answer is is to play some ITF events...

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Belinda and Alla are playing their 5th game, 25 minutes into the match. And I have just around two hours left until I have to go for about an hour - have a feeling I'll miss a good part of the match...

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

I really think this is all the queues they need for her to move back down to the ITF Circuit... For example, I see no reason why she should not have played 100K Midland in America instead of presumably a WTA event at a similar time... At least she would be almost guaranteed to win a match... I understand why she wouldn't play 25s but anything from 50K up won't be a walk in the park especially in this form but she should still get some wins... She should definitely play 25s on Clay though...

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Donna and Sabine might be on court in about 20 minutes - Alla is a set and a break up.
