Oh Donna how great are you

No matter where or who against, a win after such a long losing streak means a lot

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Not a bad decision IMO. After that one she'll have another 5 events (if my count is right) to play before her 18th b-day...not a lot for 4 months.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

6 matches this year and 1 win against 38 years old woman who is ranked outside 1000??
What has really happened with her?
Wickmayer herself is in huge slump and Donna got 5 games from her?

If she doesn't figure things out soon, she can easily finish this year outside 150. Clay won't help her eather. Maybe she can find her form before grass season?

Did they really get a bagel 1st set and still lost?

Is Donna doing Doha?

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

It says something about the state of Croatian women's tennis that Donna's only singles win since September was against a 38 year-old; and Mirjana's since October was against a 43 year-old.

And Ana is stuck with a cast on her arm.

Re: Donna Vekic - Volume 2

Well, I'm sure she'll play the French as it's mandatory and a lot of prize money for even a first round loss, but it looks like she won't be playing much claycourt tennis outside of Paris.
