Yes, complete implosion from Donna. Error after error, and Vandeweghe screaming after each and every one of them.

Ew. I actually turned on the stream because I swear she had won this one. I didn't see love scores after a while so I thought I'd watch a replay.

The stream messed up, so I'm actually glad it did.

When was her last Main Draw win?

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 Coco started serving better, Donna's 2nd serve is terrible, Coco had a chance to attack 2nd serves and Donna couldn't manage to compete with Coco's strong hitting and deep balls

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

I was at Donna's match and it was really sad to watch it finish. Coco is now officially on my list of least liked players. Broke a raquet bumped into Donna during one change over and made Donna stop so she could walk through first in another. Awful behavior by her throughout. Handshake was quick and not nice either. Unfortunately when Coco started playing better, donna just couldn't keep up with her. Donna's movement was exposed a lot by Cocos power. Serve let her down a bit too with too many dfs. Donna's own attitude also seemed really fragile. She lost the plot completely after going up 2-1 in the second set. Iva was there coaching quietly with words of encouragement but she cheered so quietly that I am not sure Donna could hear her at all. Marion Bartoli was also at the match and was cheering for Donna too!

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

Well people now know her game and her weaknesses so it is getting more difficult. It is tennis after all, it means huge work and stress if you want to be good and nothing is guaranteed. Good luck in next tournaments, her biggest issue is inconsistency - which is surprise surprise so typical for many of our girls

Also didn't allow the losing player to shake the ump's hand first as the match ended, what a crazy biatch...

Surely not a great performance by Donna, but not a disaster either.

She did have a chance here, it must be said, and she did play pretty well for a set and a half. But her focus had to be there for the entire match, as she could've at least tried to get herself to a tie-break of the 2nd.

Truth be told, her opponent settled her game in the 2nd set so from then on it was that much tougher for Donna, but I do think she gave it a way a bit too easily.

Coco has quite a game, with a monster serve, return that's not too far from it as well, good movement and the ability to generate a ton of pace and power seemingly out of nowhere. I do see her improving that ranking further, considerably.

As for Donna, she'll be losing some more points now and will go down some 10 places probably, but it's clear she isn't far from making some nice wins. If she works hard on the usual suspects, namely movement and 2nd serve, she'll be back to winning days quite soon, I'm sure.

Yeah. 10% better focus and intensity and cleaner play on the big points, and she'll have a few wins. It's tough, but often just raising your game that few percent- that is, past your opponent's limit- is enough to turn the important aspects of a match.

Double breadstick in the dubs vs. the Chan sisters. Not really a surprise.
