Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

But her fave surface is grass and she gets more damage from her serve on fast courts. It may not suit every aspect of her game but a fast court helps her get more damage from her main weapons.

I know, I never suggested otherwise

When she is on her game she suits a fast court, but recently I think her reactions have been slow and so her shots are either rushed or miss-timed, and so I'm saying the faster courts might not help right now because she already looks slow in her positioning and off balance when hitting a standard forehand and such.

I really hope she wins her match tomorrow, and then she can stop playing a mental game and go back to the kind of play that got her to Birmingham final.

I can't get live scores on my phone. Can anyone tell me if Donna is playing today and what the score is if she's playing right now?

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.

She's not playing now. Petra Martic is playing and is 6-2 3-2 up. Donna should be on after Petra.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Donna won 6-1 6-2

No idea how she played because the stream was total shit the entire day. But I'm so, so happy she won!! Hopefully it brings her some extra confidence against Belgium on Friday.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Fitting that when Donna finally won a match, it was against a 38-year-old ranked 1024.
