Donna lost 6-7 2-6.

Only good news is "only" 7 double faults.

Re: 2014 - August - Donna's US Open Series

I think it be good idea for Donna plays some ITF event after the U.S. Open

S. Williams (23) ♦ V. Williams (7) ♦ S. Stephens (1)

Supporting American Players

M. Keys ♦ CiCi Bellis ♦ T. Townsend ♦ V. Duval ♦ L. Chirico ♦ S. Crawford ♦ K. Day ♦ A.Anisimova ♦ R. Kingsley ♦ W. Osuigwe ♦ J. Daniel

Re: 2014 - August - Donna's US Open Series

Donna will play USO doubles with Timea Bacsinszky

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: 2014 - August - Donna's US Open Series

Well, she won the same number of games as the last time, but at least she came closer to winning a set this time. Not exactly encouraging overall, but it could've been worse.

Re: 2014 - August - Donna's US Open Series

Re: 2014 - August - Donna's US Open Series

Bencic won 59% of the points, so it is very odd that it went to a tiebreak (Donna trailed 3-5 in the first set). Anything above 55% of total points won is a blowout...

Re: 2014 - August - Donna's US Open Series

My suspicion is confirmed. Of her recent losses, this is actually her most lopsided loss (despite not hitting so many double-faults.)

Percentage of total points won:
Mladenovic def. Vekic - 45.3%
Paszek def. Vekic - 45.9%
Niculescu def. Vekic 43.2%
Bencic def. Vekic 41.0%

Notice that downward trend.

Bencic > Niculescu > Mladenovic > Paszek

So she won more points the worse the player is and lost more points the better the player is.

Will she win a match this year?

Donna, what is going on with her?

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: 2014 - August - Donna's US Open Series

Well, she definitely needs to improve some things. Her serve has to go to another level I think. Fitness and movement too. But given her history it's not totally surprising that she has gotten into another little slump. Hopefully this time she'll get out of it a bit quicker than last time.

It also might be the case that Belinda is a difficult opponent for her.

Re: 2014 - August - Donna's US Open Series

Vandeweghe in USO R1.

The girl is pretty much in the form of her life, started the year outside the 100, now at 39.


Good luck Donna, God knows you'll need it.
